How do you repair a cracked driveway?

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.
