How To Properly Repair A Crack

Cracks can not only make your driveway look unappealing, but can damage your driveway severely. That’s why it’s so important that you repair cracks in your driveway as soon as you can. Take a look at your driveway and see if there’s any cracks that need repairing. It is recommended that you repair any cracks that are bigger than 1 inch. Here’s how to properly repair a crack:

  • Clean the crack: It’s important to remove any dirt and debris in the crack because if it is left in there, the sealant won’t be able to bond as easily to fill the crack. 
  • Prepare the crack to be sealed: Pour the crack filler into the crack until it is filled up to the surface filler. 
  • Seal the crack: Once the filler has sealed, you’re going to seal the crack so it is level with your driveway. Sealing the crack also helps to protect against water penetration and future damage.
