How do you repair a cracked driveway?

At Blue Box Homebuyers, we’ve been working in real estate for quite some time and we’ve seen our fair share of cracked driveways — we’ve also FIXED our fair share of cracked driveways.

So… how do you do it?

Fortunately, repairing a cracked driveway is probably something you can do yourself — it typically doesn’t require any special knowledge or ability.

But it depends on the type of crack(s) you’re dealing with.

Here are some tips…

Narrow Cosmetic Cracks — Small cosmetic cracks sometimes result because the concrete dried too quickly when it was poured. You can fix these small cracks by applying a concrete resurfacing solution.

Cracks ¼ Inch in Width — Cracks up to ¼ inch in width are usually because of shrinkage. These cracks can be filled with a polymer concrete crack sealant.

Cracks & Crumbling — Cracks and crumbling on the edge of the driveway is often caused by heavy vehicles. These can be fixed with quick-setting cement that includes an acrylic fortifier.

Wide, Jagged Cracks — If you notice large cracks with heaving or settling of the driveway, then you might need to do a full slab replacement. In which case, we recommend hiring a professional.

Hope that helps! You can use good ol’ Google to get more detail!
