Need advice on 1 1/2 inch of asphalt overlay on concret and old Asphalt
 
I have a property with cracked concrete and asphalt. I had 2 different companies look at it and both are saying they can put 1 1/2 inches of asphalt over the whole parking lot and driveway. The driveway is concrete but the parking lot is asphalt. It's about 4500 square feet and they said it needs about 45 tons of asphalt and they are charging about $5,700.

Contractor 1 said they need to break apart some of the concrete to the base to replace it because it's cracked to much. Contractor 2 stated it is unnecessary and will just put the asphalt on top of the whole ground and will not remove any cracked concrete. Contractor 1 is using a 3 ton roller. Contractor 2 is using a 5 ton roller.

Any thoughts on who I should hire?

Ayuh,... No doubt removing the concrete, restoning, 'n compacting is the Best option,...

The difference might be a 10 year driveway if left in place, 'n a 15 or 20 year driveway if repaired properly...

Size of their rollers is pretty much irrevelant....
