Anyway, I will dispense initially with all the issues I had with these guys trying to get them to finish it properly at the end because it is a bit long.
Here in Minnesota the ice had just melted on the concrete pad as the fellow who plowed lost his Ford truck in a garage fire. I only cleared areas where we walked and I parked my service truck (Iam an electrician) Anyhow, this past Wednesday it had all melted and was gone so I thought I'd get the broom out and sweep the debris off at least and tidy it up a bit.
Well kiss my ass, now there are pits (quarter size) and along some of the joints it has disintegrated and crumbled completely and where the pits are seem that the concrete let go where large aggregate is under.
With all the crap I put up with and the threats I got from the salesman when I held back a portion of the final money due until they cleaned the HYDRAULIC FLUID that leaked onto 2 day old poured concrete from the rollers they parked when they did the asphalt part. There were 2 large puddles the size of a 5 gallon bucket and dozens of others where they backed onto it each time while using the rollers on the asphalt. Quarter sized drops, evenly spaced again from the rollers.
They never did return to clean it so I did it myself and they also never sealed it. I finally got them to give me the sealant and I would do it myself. 2 gallons they left me for a pad and sidewalk the size I previously mentioned. I ended up buying 3 more and it was pretty close to not enough. Now about that 2nd coat...........
They deducted $500 from almost $14K bill for the hydraulic fluid leak and not sealing it. I just wanted it over with. This jerk, the owner in fact said "he'd be happy to accept $500 for a little oil on a driveway that's going to get oil on it anyway, it's a driveway"
Get the drift of the mentality of what I went through?
Now this disintegration of the pad.I am afraid I am in for a big fight. Might even get a little physical since they were good at threats before. Seriously.
Anyway, did the fluid create what I am seeing now, or is it from not sealing it for a month or perhaps not properly.?
Any replies of info appreciated,

Knowledge is like money, the less you talk about it the more people assume you have.
