I'm repairing some problem spots in my asphalt driveway before I seal it. This is my first time to do this. I thought I would ask here before looking for an on topic forum somewhere else. I have two long medium to large cracks averaging maybe 1/2" and 3/4". The smaller one is where the asphalt meets the aggregate concrete outside my garage and the larger one is basically a seam in the driveway. The larger one is about 2" wide and about 1/2" to 3/4" deep for about at foot and about 1/2"-3/4" everywhere else. Products vary by company, but basically most of them break down as follows:
1. Small crack filler, basically a liquid for cracks up to 1/2".
2. Trowelable crack filler for cracks up to 1".
3. Cold patch.
My gut is to go with the trowelable crack filler. I'm worried that if I use cold patch, it will be too little product and it will not hold. I guess I could use cold patch at the one wide spot and trowelable crack filler everywhere else. A product like "driveway medic" or "pli-stix" is another option. They both have good reviews on Amazon. Any opinions?
