Help with Driveway repair

Hi All

The smaller horizontal cracks can be filled with a self leveling sealer but that is only good up to about an inch wide.

You could use some concrete patch for the wider ones but it's going to be short lived due to the movement of the concrete, it's eventually going to pop out!

They also make some repair materials in a caulk tube but again it's limited to width.

Eventually busted up concrete just has to be replaced!

I have to agree with Mark. Anything you do will only be a temporary fix. On those larger areas or cracks, dig them out and if possible go as deep as 4". Put a small layer of stone and use something like TOP and Bond. If you can't go deep then try and put in some backer rod leaving about an inch or 1/2" depth to pour in a self leveler patch as Marq suggested.

To stop the weeds from growing, can I use QUIKRETE 80-lb High Strength Concrete Mix? To fill the cracks.
Thanks Brian

I think concrete mix will be hard smooth out on cracks and hole like that. Too many stones in concrete. You want cement that will flow into the cracks and you can work into the crevices with a trowel then smooth over.
