Driveways wear out after a long period of time and might need to be repaired or completely replaced. Watch this video to see how to resurface a driveway safely. With the winter coming, it can be risky to have cracks and eroded spots on the driveway. These damaged sections can allow water to pool around the driveway or plants to grow between cracks, causing further damage.
Those planning to resurface their driveway should begin by removing weeds and debris and cleaning it using a leaf blower and pressure washer. Next, they should use a liquid elastomeric filler and a filler paste to seal cracks and eroded areas.
In the asphalt paving process, they should apply a bonding agent and sealer over the surface and spread it evenly. Usually, the sealer contains asphalt with polymer added to ensure it sticks to the old surface and reduces the likelihood of cracking.
Next, the resurfacer should be thoroughly mixed before being poured into the driveway. The material should be applied at the driveway edges using a painting brush. Similarly, using the right tool, the resurfacer should be spread back and forth on the driveway and left to dry.
