I recently had a driveway replaced and the contractor never returned to install control joints. 17 day's later control joints were cut into the drive. on the 11th day random cracking appeared i've a total of 6 crack's from the base to the top i feel the subbase was okay, did the lack of control joints during that period play a major factor in the cracking the driveway is 78 ft long and 91/2 ft wide and the weather was hot, I'm considering taking legal action. ps. the contractor stated there wasn't a time frame that had to be followed for cutting control joints.Can you help me
