We are doing final touches to asphalt courts for pickleball which we sealed but now need to make the surface smoother (we are doing this on the cheap). After using the filler, would we need to seal again?

Answer: 
I have used this (once a year in the spring) for several years now to fill in large cracks in my driveway caused by the sever winters we have in New England. It looks fine all summer and fall without any sealing. Of course there is a color difference between the treated cracks and the rest of my old driveway. It has definitely extended the useable life of my driveway.

Answer: 
No.
It can be left to stand alone. It will continue to shrink over time and may need multiple coats.
After winter, I did not see any deterioration, which is good.

Answer: 
Normally, you would fill the cracks and patch the surface before sealing. I would do a test patch on a small area, let it dry for at least 24 to 48 hours before playing on it and see how it holds up. If it doesn't, you may have to let it weather (age) a few weeks and then it should be okay.

Answer: 
The labeling infers that the product is designed for application before sealing and from what I can see I would highly recommend sealing after it is applied. That said, I believe you could patch what you need and only re-seal the area over this product and a foot or so around it to blend it in.

Answer: 
I have never had any luck with product in the 2 times that I have used it over the past 4 years. It seems to never cure stays brown and grainy when hot and wet out and then wears off the sealer from underneath and will be your first bare spot. I would not use this product. Hope that helps - its just my experience with it and trying to share with others so maybe a better product will be made.

Answer: 
In my experience I would wait at least a week. It has taken that long for the patch material to dry well. To be sure, I'd give it two weeks. It is water based, and depending on the depth of the cracks it could take some time to dry completely.

I used 2X Crack Filler on some cracks where I probably should have used the Trowel Patch. There are depressions in the cracks from settling because the cracks were deep. Can I use Trowel Patch over the 2X Crack Filler to fill in the depressions and will it adhere to it?

Answer: 
For this product you are going to spread it across the crack and "feather" it out. So you'll be covering the area you patched and overlapping onto the pavement. That said, you need to keep in mind that since this is water based it shrinks quite a bit. In a deeper crack you'll need multiple coatings to level it out.

I had to deal with the same issue as well. I waited until the first layer was fully cured (in my case three days at 85 deg).The second coat did the trick. I waited three more days ,then applied sealer.You didn't say how thick the layer was.It shouldn't have been more than 1/2 inch deep.If it was more than that,you will have to let it cure longer.

Mind you, it has only been three months but has held up to repeatedly being driven over with a Ford Explorer and Isuzu Trooper. Time will tell how well it lasts the winter up here in Delaware.

Yes, it can be used for alligator cracks. I used it and so far it is holding up nicely. Mind you, it has only been three months but has held up to repeatedly being driven over with a Ford Explorer and Isuzu Trooper. Time will tell how well it lasts the winter up here in Delaware. That being said, I will seal my driveway in a week or two for the added protection since this is a trowel patch and NOT a sealer. Be sure to seal over the patch!
Here's what I did for my repair.
1) I hosed the areas down to loose the dirt.
2) I then power washed the entire area. This includes the cracks and a foot outside of the cracks. That way you get all the dirt out of the cracks and surrounding areas to give the patch a good surface to adhere to.
3) I didn't have any oil spots, but if you do, be sure to treat them else the patch will not adhere. HD sells several treatments for this, but I didn't need any so i didn't research.
4) Let the area dry. Doesn't have to be completely dry, but you want it to sit out in the sun for a full day, at least.
5) Now comes the fun part. Use a trowel (I used a triangular trowel) to apply the patch kind of like you'd ice a cake. Be sure to press it all the way into the cracks until it starts oozing out. Apply this over the entire area so the patch fills the cracks and the areas between them plus a few inches outside of the area (remember the power washing outside of the areas? This is why.)
6) Wait at least one full day. The patch in the deep cracks will split as the water in the patching compound evaporates. Don't panic, this is normal. Give it a second or third day of drying so the patch is good and solid. Repeat step 5 so you refill the cracks and place another coating over the entire area.
7) Repeat step 6 until after drying, no new cracks appear in the patched area.
8) Seal your driveway.
It took me almost a month to do a few areas of my driveway and another month to do another area. This is a time intensive task in that it takes patience and cooperation with the weather plus playing musical-car-parking-spots to prevent driving over the patch until it is completely dry. If you are just now starting, you may not get it done in time for the Fall weather. Read Less

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 118 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is my second review I have used 6 gallons of this product and it has held up during summer and 5° winter with 30" of snow. I was concerned if this product would peel off over time. It did not. Trowel Patch is easy to apply with a plastic spatula. It dries hard and holds up over time. It is excellent. For shallow and feathered applications this works as advertised. The bonding properties are excellent. April 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best in class I've tried other offerings in this category but this one is tops. This stuff goes on smooth spreads easily and dries black. It has a consistency which makes feathering a breeze. It provides a smooth hard surface which can then be coated with sealer. Great product for smoothing out rough areas on older asphalt or filling shallow cracks. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trowel Patch Product does exactly what it's intended to do. However, I would never recommend Home Depot's third party delivery people for appliances. Very poor experience, down right nasty. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product For those that are doing drive coating themselves this is a good product; but actually the only crack filler for cracks more than 1/2 inch that The Home Depot carries. And, they also carry this is a stone base product pail for bigger cracks. You really don't need anything for those cracks less than half inch if you apply two coats of drive sealer. And, wait a few weeks between coats. But for those larger cracks this works well and can be applied with a cheap trowel or even a cheat scraper. After applying make sure you finish with a smooth look as this will be the base for that drive coat sealer. Let it dry for two days before sealing as this works best and if the cracks are big and product shrinkage occurs as you may want to use the crack fill again as a leveler before sealing your drive. For an average drive (700 square feet) that has not been maintained you may need three pails. I used three of these pails on our drive that I only used drive sealer on last October (we just bought the home) to ensure the bad winter would not pop the asphalt. So I did preventative not maintenance repair. This year I did it to ensure five year maintenance free drive coating. Three pails of this did a great job of filling all the cracks. Don't do it all in one day but two or three so that your eyes see the drive differently each time and most cracks are more noticeable to fill and repair. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good for everyone doing this on their own. It definitely needs you to dip your trowel in water when you are doing the final top coat to smooth out better. It gives a better finish. I just dropped water on top and smoothed out edging etc Lots of layers is the trick after each one had dried. I used way more than I expected as you can get carried away making the whole driveway smooth! I found it worked for all cracks from hairline to finger wide and I used it to heighten some water gathering dips in the driveway which were at least 2 feet wide. October 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by My driveway is worse than before I applied this product in probably the best conditions possible: 85 degrees, mostly sunny, no rain for days. I was careful to stay below the 1/2" maximum thickness. After two or three weeks, it started cracking, and peeling up. It looks like the Utah salt flats. Every time it gets wet, it changes back from black to brown color. It has been at least 6 weeks now, and that still happens. Not only was it a waste of money, I wish it wasn't on my driveway. October 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saved me a new driveway My driveway was trashed - previous owner probably left it for a decade with no maintenance. This driveway is 210 feet long and widens to 24 feet for the back 60 feet. I did not have the $$ to replace. Here were my steps to success. I define success as functional and OK appearance. 1. Used the blower and to blow away the debris and used a weed wacker to edge to get to the real edge of the driveway. 2. I had hundreds of feet of cracks. No way I could use a screw driver to clean out the cracks would have taken too long. Here I had divine revelation. I grabbed my weedwacker and turned it on edge (like an edger) and used it to knock away loose material in cracks. Worked like a charm (thank you Jesus). I went through at least 6 spools of string but it only took me a couple hours. 3. Used the trowel patch and applied with 3" scraper versus a trowel (easier to lay down). Took two applications because of shrinkages and 20 gallons! 4. Applied 16 buckets of Sand-Mix Driveway Coating and I'm one happy camper! October 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Save your money Bought this to use before sealing my driveway. The color fades to brown quickly.The material shrinks as it dries and the cracks from the drying process look worse than than the driveway did. Returning what I have left and the sealant. April 25, 2016
