Due to everyday use and deterioration driveways can get damaged and develop cracks. Some oil spilled on the asphalt driveway may not seem like a big deal, but it can smash down the asphalt and cause cracks as well. The first thing that you need to do before repairing the driveway is to remove any tiny plants or weeds that have grown in the cracks. The next thing that you do is to spay off the driveway to get rid of the dirt and loose pieces of asphalt.
You may also need to put cleaning solution on the driveway to get rid of all the chemical and oil stains. Once the area becomes totally dry, it is time to make the repairs. For the tiny cracks you can use "rubberized" asphalt. Fill in the driveway cracks and make it smooth with a putty knife. Be sure that none it spills out onto the surface of the driveway. After taking care of the cracks it is time to seal the driveway.
You should make sure that you fill the driveway and seal it so it will last a long time. Once the cracks are dry, wet the driveway with a gently spray and pour a driveway sealer about a twelve inches wide over the whole driveway. Use a brush to spread the sealer to almost four feet. Repeat until the driveway is finished. It will take about two hours to dry.
