Here are a few pictures of the worst area. It's about one foot by two feet long. It's really affected a much larger area, though. If you press down with your fingers on the cement all around the spot, it gives as if there's air between the surface layer and the lower layer of concrete. I just have a hard time believing that even if a little salt got on the driveway and caused damage, that it could be this extensive after just a few months.

I got in touch with the contractor and, while he sounded pretty grouchy about it, he's going to come by sometime in the next few days to look at it. I'm hoping that we can reach some kind of agreement without having to resort to small claims court.
