Mudjack it or replace it?

I've got a 20 year old driveway with several cracks in it. Portions of the driveway have dropped 3 inches this summer, and the sidewalk has a severe tilt to it.

I've received a couple of bids from mudjackers in the $1800 range. A friend of a friend gave me a bid of $3500 to pour a new driveway and sidewalk. From what I've heard, $3500 is a good deal.

What's the going rate to pour a new driveway these days?

I'm leaning towards that option. Has anyone hired a mudjacker around here? Were you happy with the result?

You get that because there are multiple solutions to most problems. Different budgets, different climates, sub-soils, experience make people lean different ways.

You'll never get 2 surveyors to agree on the distance between 2 points and you'll rarely get 2 carpenters to have the exact same opinion.

When it comes to handy type skilled trade stuff construction, remodeling, in this case concrete and things of that nature I am always surprised by the wide ranging opinions of people who are seemingly very knowledgeable about how something should be done or the standard to which others should hold someone who does that work.

As someone who is not at all skilled in any of these areas it can be hard to make heads or tails of. You can get a few guys who do this for a living that seem like trustworthy people who are dealing with you in good faith have a huge variance in how they would go about one thing and usually take it a step further putting clown shoes on a way the other guy would do it.

You see this in other facets of life and professions but rarely does the standard of what is good and bad vary so wildly.

Is that just me?

Yea, that makes total sense to me. I guess what is funny is that so many are quick to call everyone elses way of doing things shit.

Point conceded. However, I think diamond produces too much glare unless the driveway is on the north side of the house.
