I would like to asphalt my gravel driveway.   I have not been able to get any response from any company.  This could be be 20ft wide 500 ft long.
I am in Dodge county.  Any suggestions?

They will be booked for the summer at this point. You need to tell them when you call that you are interested on getting on next years schedule. You may get a response then.  DRS out of Madison may travel that far.

What has irritated me the most is the lack of response.   I started in March with no replies.  I even tried the company the town was using for blacktopping.
Nothing.   I will see if anyone will put me on a waiting list for next year.

I had the same experience trying to get someone to do some landscape work.  One was booked for the year, another 2 never returned my calls and another I called said he'd call back at the end of the week - after I 2 weeks I called back and he said oh sure, he got busy but would call back in a few days... nothing.  They're probably the ones pissing and moaning that they can't find any jobs.  Screw 'em, I'll do it myself.

You could just go with compacted road base and call it good.

Driveway is crushed limestone 3/4" with fines.  There are areas that would be a lot better if it was paved.   Then there is muck season when the frost is coming out of the ground and everything is soft.

Wolf Paving. They were responsive and price was good.

Why not do it with the tar/pea gravel instead of blacktop. Instead of seal coating blacktop, they just tar/pea gravel it again...seems like less of a pita.

had our place done by Mac Paving out of West Bend.
They were about 45 minutes away from us.

I would rate the quality as average. They had issues with a couple of areas.

I had one quote of $9k for the approach to the road and back about 50 ft x 15ft wide.   The rest was an additional $16k from my garage down to my shop.

I am also looking at concrete.

Local landscaping contractor I drive dump truck for occasionally is booked up til next summer. Yes 2022, and what's left of that is filling in fast. He just shuts his phone off now so he can get work done. If you call several times and leave message he may think your serious or desperate and return the call.

Otherwise he doesn't have the help or time to get anything done. Wasting time giving out estimates isn't going to happen. Maybe late this fall once is gets cold. Be patient and persistent, this isn't Burger King. The days of contractors kissing your --- for work is over. Be prepared to pay up. Everyone is just throwing stupid prices out there and if it sticks maybe they'll work you in.
