Please recommend a paving contractor for removal and replacement of existing asphalt driveway in South Orange

Original driveway installed in 1985. Seeking written proposal for remove and replacement including excavation, grading driveway with compacted subgrade, and compacted hot asphalt mix. Concrete cobblestone border required as well. Driveway length: 100 feet.


I had Carmines Landscaping and Construction do mine.  They did an excellent job.  I thought it was going to be a quick process done in a week, however it took three weeks.  After speaking with Matt, the reason for that was to let the driveway settle.  Some companies don't wait the necessary time for the driveway to settle and that leads to cracks in the driveway.  After three weeks the driveway was rock hard and ready for the asphalt.  Expect to pay 6k to 9K for paving and $1500 to $2500 for belgium block.  One slight negative, Carmines does not do driveway sealing.  However, WH & SONS 973-467-0195 was just recommended for that here on MOL.

Other contractors that have been recommended here on MOL: Avellino Masonry, Michael Giordano, and Johny's Masonry.

Thank you for the recommendation. I called and left a voice mail with Matt (?) to trigger a site visit and a written proposal. I have heard of Avellino and may give them a call as well. Again, much appreciated. Dennis L
