Cracking of paint on drive. Seal a Drive Melbourne

Steve sold me on that he guaranteed the work for 15 years. If it was to crack during the 15 years he would return to fix the problem. So far l have called him 4 times and sent 2 text messages. No one has come out to check the dodgie job. I am really disappointed. Please do not give this man any work as he is not a man of his word. He is a ***-artist. Happy to take your money and not do a proper job. He took $1,600 from me I do not want this to happen to anyone else. You will regret it as l have.

So called Director- Steve Guastalegname is operating under an unregistered business. Will quote you on a job to be paid cash only, otherwise it's 20% more to his written quote. Starts the job then leaves it for several weeks. The job is done unsatisfactory and unprofessionally. Cracks, chipping of concrete and white shades start to appear within a couple of days. Tried contacting him and arranging times TO REPAIR WORK. Did not keep appointments. Have reported him to consumer affairs, ASIC, VCAT, ATO... HE PROMOTES HIMSELF AT HOME SHOWS. THEREFORE BEWARE! Home Show organisers have been contacted too now. He has caused a lot of unnecessary stress! A compulsive liar too!

Hi Adam,

Our driveway is a disgrace. We have photos taken at

2 weeks after the job, then 2 months, 6 months and 9 months. It looks worse now than it ever did.


I too have dealt with seal a drive. However my experience was much better than dealing with most trades.

We had a very large driveway and pergola area to be done.

The areas were washed down one day and he returned two days later to spray the job.

It needed to be sprayed over two days and Steve was there both days with two other workers. The weather was against us so he came back as soon as the areas were dry.

You can't seal or spray when it's wet.

He contacted me at every occasion to keep me updated.

I was happy with the job done and have it sealed every 18 months to keep it looking fresh. Thanks Seal a drive & Steve.

Seal a drive, spray on paving

Seal a drive charged $2700, demanded cash and refused to hand over an invoice or receipt. Bad job, lifting and cracking within 3 months. Although there is supposed to be a 15 year guarantee, this swearing nasty man, makes appointments to come back and fix the paving but never turns up. Also over sprayed our windows, front door, garage door etc. whatever you do, do use Seal a drive from Greendale vic. Have reported him to Consumer Affairs, ACCC and ATO. ATO advises that it is illegal to refuse a tax invoice or a receipt. This company is at all the home shows. The standard of word is disgusting. When we phone to complain he swears at us or won't answer the calls.
