My father in law again. The HOA was overlaying the asphalt driveway with warning ahead of time, telling residents to either keep their cars out or risk not having enough time to wait for it to dry. During the overlay, my mother in law felt nausea and my father in law panic, so he just drove with her out despite the crew telling him to stop, and left some marks on the driveway before the coating dried. He casually mentioned to me about it and say he'll talk his way out of repairing it himself (he was a chemical engineer that used to work in refinery and cement factory, so he knows everything, right?), and will refuse to pay for "thousands of dollars" to fix it. Of course I'm sure this is not going to happen with HOA, and consider how my FIL just rattle can paint every single scratches on his car with a "close enough" color, it will not work for anyone. As expected, I got a letter from HOA's managing company with photos to prove which car was driven and what rule we broke, and we are responsible for the repair cost, and need to contact him to avoid a fine. Wish me luck on my talk with the HOA's managing company (it is an old couple with medical emergency, and were in a panic), what should I expect the damage / redo of the overlay going to cost? From my understanding it is either just a sealant or overlay, instead of complete replacement of the asphalt from all the way down.
