I have a mess in my new Driveway. Our city did a beautiful job replacing the street and they offered to replace our driveways at the same time. The day they chose to replace ours, our maple tree leaves decided to fall heavily. Now we have a driveway that did not get smoothed out at the end and it has over 100 1/4" to 1/2" leaf patterns with pock mark holes beneath them from the leaves getting ground into the cement. If we leave this alone, will the holes continue to chip away and degrade more? (they are very irregular) Is there a way to put a smoothing coat on top? The city is turning a deaf ear. Should I get a professional out to look at it? Thanks for any input. The city acts like it's no big deal but I want to make sure. It looks like a mess.

It's hard to say from here w/o seeing the damage. Consider hiring a Home Inspector to visit your home for a case of decent beer or $25, or something. Good advice from an impartial 3rd party is $$$ well spent. Be sure your HI is ASHI-approved. You don't want to hire someone that use to be a Widget Stacker that took a Matchbook Course to change careers and become a HI.

Visit I think you'll get a good start there. $25 is cheap for peace-of-mind. My best to ya and hope this helps.
