Best drivewy crack sealer (by Ron [NJ]) Posted on: Mar 24, 2019 7:58 AM

I used the Latex-ite crack filler from Home Depot to fill the cracks and the sealer afterwards. I put two coatings of the 10- year sealer. After two winters, the crack filler has broke into pieces and I can see the cracks again. The cracks are about 1/8-1/4 wide.

Can someone recommend a better product to fill asphalt cracks that can withstand the winters? TIA --98.109.xxx.xxx

I bought a wide asphalt tape and put it over cracks and it has held for years. Also if you have a small spot with a hole you can buy one of those black sticky rat traps and turn if over right on the hole or small crack and just ride over it. I had one fall out of the garbage into the street and until last year it is still stuck tight there through snow and plows and all the rest. --173.61.xxx.xx

Only hot tar can fill your crack the way you want it filled.

This is what municipalities do in their cracking streets. --99.59.x.xxx

If hot tar is the best solution, can someone recommend a product? --98.109.xxx.xxx

I haven't actually done this, but if you get one of those propane camp burners (like the Kiawanis uses for pancake bakes) and a big old pot you can heat the solid tar (if you overheat it can catch fire - don't use water, use dirt) then get some tongs and a coffee can or pot with a handle and pour the cracks. YMMV.

This is one job I always hire out. Burning tar hurts, let someone else enjoy the pain. :) --47.216.xx.xxx

How big are the cracks? For very long and massive cracks, there are contractors who own machines that heat tar and can apply the hot tar where needed.

If hiring such a contractor is out of question, then DIY.

One product is Black Jack concrete patch. You can use a caulking gun to force it into the cracks (clean them first).

I would warm the patch later to make it go all the way down the cracks - but caution : this stuff is highly flammable.

If you can't warm the tar with a torch, do this on a hot day in the summer.

Lowe's carries it.

Have you thought about re-coating the driveway? --99.59.x.xxx

On flat roofs we use Torch Down Roofing. However even on a hot day (no fun in CA), we need to use a propane gas powered torch. The torch makes the material extremely elastic and adhesive. Hold the torch too long and there starts a fire.

We use heavy gloves. drink a lot of water, and work as quickly as we can. --99.59.x.xxx

home depot used to have a product like a rope of tar that you forced into cracks and then melted with a torch --73.141.xxx.xx
