My driveway is 5 year old and there is no crack at all except there is a tiny gap between the Belgian blocks and the blacktop. It has been sealed once about 3 years ago.
The driveway is 20' x 52'

Can somebody tell me approximately how many gallons do I need?

Thanks

It's sold in 4.75 gallon buckets for 350sf of coverage area. 350sf is an average of 'more or less.
The SF of 1040 is borderline for 3 buckets = 1050sf. Get 4 buckets and return one if not needing it, it's better than running short on potentially messy projects.

Answer: 
20x52=1040 sq ft.: so 1 can covers 350 sq. ft.; 2.97; so buy 3 cans to cover it and an extra can for a nice thick coat to seep in:. so 1040 sq ft. divided by 350 sq. ft . = 2.971

Answer: 
Hi cwon. With a driveway of your size, you will need six to eight 5-gallon buckets for a two coat application. You can find a coverage calculator, as well as application tips on our web site, www.gardner-gibson.com. You'll also find instructions/application tips on the Gardner Pro 7 page on www.homedepot.com.

Hairline, it will not fill 1/8 inch or 1/16 must be smaller, it will seal them but not fill if they are shallow, if 1/16 or larger. Deep cracks must be prepped.

Answer: 
Thanks for your question. A coating will cover “spider web” cracks up to approximately 1/16” with “excellent” results. This type of crack is generally a surface crack which does not go through the pavement. Cracks in excess of this should be repaired using a Gardner patching product. Your application temperature should be 60 degrees and rising. Good luck with your driveway!

Hello David,
Thank you for your question!
This product will fill in cracks up to 1/2" wide, so it will work well for your 1/8" cracks. The coldest application temperature is 50 degrees.
Have a great day,
Christine

Answer: 
Being kind of fussy myself, I would probably coat the cold patch with Latex-ite 2 Gal. Trowel Patch. It would smooth out the coarseness of the cold patch repair and have it look better than without. But as with most repairs of cracks etc., it will have a slightly smoother appearance under the top coat. The top coat sealers, themselves, tend to level out and don't do much to conceal cold patch repairs.

Filler/sealer should hide color variations of patching but not the rough texture of some coarse patch jobs. Given a few coats prior to a complete sealing top coat, even the rough texure could blend in better. The additives of 'fillers' can fill depressions and voids.

Filler/sealer should hide color variations of patching but not the rough texture of some coarse patch jobs. Given a few coats prior to a complete sealing top coat, even the rough texure could blend in better. The additives of 'fillers' can fill depressions and voids.
There are other products like trowelable crack fillers that might work better in some more extreme cases before sealing the surface.
'smooth' and 'coarse' texture can be visually apparent when patching was necessary before an overall driveway sealing, but the color should be consistent. Only new asphalt looks new, especially in cold, freezing climates with frost/thaw. So, don't expect perfection from sealcoats, although they do give weathered asphalt a new lease on life with proper preparation.
As with any good paint job, it's all in the preparation before the paint.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worthwhile I applied to a new driveway (10 months old). Went on very easy, cured quickly and seemed to provide a very good layer of protection to seal the asphalt. It did take far more material than the bucket claims. Although my drive was a first time application which certainly has some effect, I only got about 150 sq. ft per bucket, not 350. Maybe I put it too thick but I don't think so. Time will be the ultimate judge because if it does last anywhere near the 7 years supposed, it will still be very worthwhile. I like how it looks and the ease of application, so I am satisfied with the product. 5 years from now, if it holds up well, I will definitely repurchase. This product had much higher user reviews than any other brand I found, so that swayed me and I am pleased overall. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised I used this product as directed and the first coat went on quite well. Coverage was as stated on the website. The second coat did not go as well. The temperature was well within the guidelines but when we got to the part of the driveway that was more exposed to the sun the issues began. The material dried very quickly. In fact it was steaming and started balling up. CAUTION needs to be exercised when the temperatures are in the high 70's and sun is on the work area. I just wanted to share my thoughts. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Product, Does Not Mix Well! Poor Quality! Waste of Money! I used this Gardner 7 year driveway sealer today and was so very disappointed and 2 of the other 5 gallon buckets were thrown away because I refuse to use it after trying one container. After a very long time mixing with my drill and attachment I was never able to get it mixed and product looked like sludge at bottom no matter how hard I tried mixing it with drill. You should use a drywall mixing paddle to mix but there was none stocked at my store to buy so I had to use a heavy duty paint mixer. August 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by no good for my driveway Last year I followed the instruction and had applied two coats with this product on my driveway. Right after one week it was sanded out almost every day. During the winter, it starting showed hairline cracks everywhere. This is the 1st time I have this kind of poor result and it caused by switching to this product . In the past 20 years with other brand products, there were only several line cracks happened. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blacktop Gel Filler Sealer This sealer was the easy to use no stir just turn upside down the night before using. I have used at least three other brands none of then close to this product. Looks great if last like warraty says I will be very pleased. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best driveway sealer I have ever purchased!! This has got to be the best driveway sealer on the market!! I did turn the buckets upside down and left them until ready for use, this product did not require any stirring at all. And when I poured in out on to the driveway, it was so easy to apply and went on very smoothly. My driveway looked as good as when it was new, I did buy the driveway patch and filled in the small cracks before applying the sealer. My driveway looked so good, I didn't want to put the cars back on it!! Clean up was also a breeze, just soap, water and a scrub brush. I am a widow and this sealer definitely made my job a lot easier and looks great!! I will definitely purchase this product again!!! If you need sealer, consider this one, don't pass it by!! September 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best used so far! No stir but we stored anyway, went on smooth started with rubber squeeze but switched to broom type which gave a better look! Used 10 cans glad I ordered 2 extra for second coat! September 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Goes on easy with minimal mixing, was hoping it filled cracks 1/8 inch or smaller. You still need a crack filler prep. September 8, 2015
