Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by P MacDonald Lucky To Get 2 Years, Let Alone 8....
Bought 9 buckets of this in 2014. Followed the instructions and put 'er down. Looked nice.
Pretty much was looking gone come May 2015.
Will definitely have to redo this year. Best thing about this product is the squeegee applicator that the company makes and recommends for application - the squeegee is a quality product. That you have to buy separately. The actual sealer, not so much.
Although, where there's no traffic on the driveway(in the narrow middle, for example), the product looks good. So go do your driveway and don't use it for 8 years and you'll be all set. Otherwise, just assume you're gonna be doing it every year or two and get the cheap stuff.....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bg5716 Dissappointing Results
I prepped my driveway by first blowing all the dust and debris away, then spraying on Latexite driveway cleaner allowing it to stand 5 minutes then pressure washed my drive way. I then repeated the process insuring my surface was completely clean I rinsed it twice each time to assure no leftover cleaner residue was present . I mixed this product thoroughly and then applied one coat Latexite Optimum sealer to driveway. The next day I applied a second coat and the finished product looked great. I then waited one week before driving on it.
The bad news is that now about three months later it's beginning to crack in tiny sections or chips in such a pattern resembling shattered glass. As time passes the cracks multiply. It should be remembered first that this is supposed to be a sealer which it cannot be if I have thousands of little cracks allowing water in and underneath it. I know winter will destroy this stuff when this water gets underneath these chips, freezes and I suspect begins popping them loose.
I've had visitors ask me " what's going on with all the cracks" ?
Terrible product !
I do not recommend using this product it won't last and you will be coating your drive again, it's a waste of money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TonyP Looks great on a 60+ year old driveway, but buy more than you need
I have a 60+ year old New Jersey driveway, and its pretty big. My initial purchase was 12 buckets, thinking I'd get pretty far. Well with an old, pitted driveway such as mine, the first session only got me about 30' down my 30' wide driveway. There wasn't much to fill in terms of cracks, so I only powerwashed and used a blower afterwards to clean up as far as prep. I had also started the project with an old squeegee that had a very thin blade. So that was on me. Definitely buy the new thick-bladed squeegee so you can apply more downforce and spread the product thinner.
However, the results of 1 coat on this practically white driveway are pretty impressive.
After all is said and done, I'll have purchased close to 40 buckets in 4 trips to HD, and sealing in 4 seperate sessions... and that's just for the driveway portion on the front half of my property. I really should have hired a company that has a sprayer since I have such a large amount of driveway that needs sealed, but at least I can say I tried it. If you have a small "normal" driveway, then this product is pretty good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike We Actually Did It And It Looks Great!!!
My wife and I are retired and have been married for over forty years. We learned early on that we could not work on projects together - couldn't even paint a room together without cross words being exchanged. For the most part, I took are of everything outside and she was responsible for everything inside. We became best friends with all the tradesmen in the area and came to know them all on a first name basis. The arrangement worked, so why bother trying to fix something that wasn't broken.
We recently had a new driveway put in and to be sure it wasn't cheap. So, we decided we wanted to protect our investment and have our new driveway sealed. I'm not exactly sure how or why we arrived at the decision to do ourselves, but we did. Together, we watched video tapes on the internet of guys sealing their driveway. Piece of cake! We carefully measured the dimensions of the driveway, calculated the amount of sealant we would need, for two coats of course, and went to Home Depot and purchased eleven buckets of sealant and all the necessary accessories. In the end, it was hard work but we did it! The driveway looks great and we're quite pleased with ourselves. We haven't planned any more projects, yet, but you never know,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChevyS10 Great Value Driveway Sealer!
This drive way sealer spread very easily and filled the many cracks & rough surface that I had after not sealing it for at least 3 years. With other sealers on my 1000 sq ft driveway I learned to buy extra buckets, like 6 instead of 4. I bought 7 buckets & used only 4 3/4 as this product spread quite smoothly & easily.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by snomobile not the results I expected
After two days of working on the driveway.....used a weedeater to edge driveway, washed with a driveway cleaner using a stiff broom and pressure washer. Filled cracks with trowel mix and liquid filler. This was one day of prep. Second day temp was in the 80's and sunny. I applied as directed with a squeegee. Everything was drying evenly and it looked good. I checked on it the morning after and any place that had any kind of surface imperfection, small crack etc the sealer had DRIED AND CRACKED. This product is labeled as a FILLER SEALER. I looks terrible and I have to put a second coat on. How do I know the second coat won't do the same??

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Groundhog Somewhat Disappointed
I have sealed my driveway for many years and was a little disappointed with the product. It applied fairly well and the end result looked very nice. It may have sealed well, but it did not fill my small < 1/8" cracks. They only filled after I applied it several times.
