Question

Some time ago I used a product sold at the local home improvement center to fill in cracks I have in my driveway. A year later they're open again. Even though I used the crack filler per instructions, I noticed the filler became rather brittle. Yet I walk into the street which was paved some time ago, and I find the concrete seams filled with a compound that, after 35 years, is still pliable and squishy between my toes when I walk on it! Where could I get some of the good compound the city uses, and why isn't it available to the general public?

filler for cracks

Bonding with great strength while waterproofing and sealing large gaps in concrete is no problem xxxxxliquid rubber adhesive coating and caulking products. The high strength bonding and flexibility assures a complete seal for many years.

As with anything preparation is crucial. make sure you clean out the cracks, preferably with compressed air. Stay out of the Big Box stores when you shop, try a good masonry yard that deals with contractors and get their advice and follow their suggestions.
