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.

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.

Answer: 
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.

I have a driveway that really needs replacing but don't have the money to do that now. I would like to provide a skim coat of this produce over some of the more surface damaged areas before applying a sealer. Application with a trowel would leave to thick of a coat in some of the areas. I am hoping that using a squeegee over those areas would fill the surface defects and cover a larger area.

Answer: 
It won't go as far as you might think. Unlike driveway seal coat, this is thicker so it won't self level. As such, using a squeegee might not work too well since every lump and bump will cause the squeegee to bounce up and down leaving a series of ridges and waves. The material does work to level out areas that just need a thin coat and does adhere well. If you use it in combination with cold patch, make Read More

Answer: 
Yes, you can apply the trowel patch with a squeegee at a thin layer. Remember the coating is only as good as the surface below it, and it will most likely crack in a years time as the asphalt moves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My Driveway My driveway is almost 50 years old.I am 75 years young.This product Trowel Patch has helped me very much by saveing me thousands of dollars in paveing cost and made the repairs so that a person of my age can do this with little effort. Thank you Home Depot for this product. John Geiger homeowner... September 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Durable and easy to apply I have used Latex-ite products for several years now patching an old black top driveway that was literally crumbling apart. Not having the cash on hand to have it redone professionally, I have been doing sections of it at a time with Latex-ite products. First I power wash the dirt from the cracks, on areas where there are just deep cracks I use the liquid crack filler in a gallon container, and if the crack is large enough I smooth it over with the trowel patch afterwards to make it look better. Where the trowel patch really shines is the areas where the black top is so broken up and it resembles alligator skin, it's too much to handle for the liquid but the trowel works great and is easy to apply. What I really like about these products is the water cleanup, can't beat it! The manufacture says you don't need to seal the trowel patch after applying but I believe it makes it look nicer and gives it added protection. Side Note, make sure to apply these products when there is no forecast of rain for at least 24 hours or your effort and cash will be washed away. When your drive is as bad as mine these products will not make it look like new but as close to it for doing it by hand, and if done right should protect it for quite a few years to come with regular maintenance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thinner than you might expect The material is much like mortar which was a bit surprising. It spreads well. It must be applied thinly otherwise it cracks as it dries. If it does crack, fill it in with the same material after the first application has fully dried. It's been on for several weeks now and seems to be holding up just fine. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by more experiments using this on driveway in bad shape, before blacktop. it says you don't need to cover it, though. i have some low spots i'm trying to build up and a lot of places where the underlying fill is disintegrating so i tried using this stuff to fill in the low pothole and keep it from getting worse. we'll see.

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
