How to repair cracks in asphalt

 

Cold Canadian winters and humid summers can be tough on asphalt. Isn’t it time you showed your driveway some love and fixed up those cracks? It’s not the gruelling job you think it is. You got this.

1. First up, check the weather. For this job you’re going to need a nice dry day where the temperature is over five degrees Celsius. Double check the label as application temperatures will vary.

2. Get out there with a broom or wire brush to clean all the dirt, dust and other loose junk out of those cracks. 

3. All clean? Grab a can of Asphalt Driveway Crack Filler. Read all the warning labels, they’re there for a reason. 

4. Place your finger on the cap and shake it up. You want to shake it well enough to ensure the crack filler is thoroughly mixed. And when you’re pretty sure it’s good and shaken, shake it for another minute. 

5. Take a pair of scissors and carefully cut the spout tip to the desired width. Ensure the spout width is smaller than the crack so that it fits in there. 

6. Now, squeeze the Asphalt Driveway Crack Filler into the cracks. If your crack is ¼ inch or less in width or depth, you’re only going to need one application.

7. If your crack is deeper than ¼ inch, squeeze a first application of asphalt driveway crack filler into the cracks, then add some fine sand to a level of about a quarter inch from the surface. Then add another layer of crack filler to top it off.

8. Make sure you use a generous helping of the crack filler, overfilling each crack to allow the filler to sink in, penetrate and for some of it to evaporate. 

9. Let the crack filler sit for a day or two before you walk or drive on the repaired area as you wait to let it dry. 

That wasn’t so bad, was it? That’s a nice looking driveway. We told you, you got this.
