Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Livestrong1003 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
