Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JWright Very happy with the stuff.
Patched a dirt and weed filled 25 ft. stretch between my old asphalt driveway and my neighbor's concrete driveway. Followed the instructions, used an 8x8 hand tamper and had no problems. One of the reviews I read before buying talked about it sticking, so i sprayed the tamper with some Boeshield T-9 that I use in my woodworking shop and had no sticking problems> However, if you're doing a big job, hand tamping may leave your hands weak and shaky at the end. This is the second time I've use it this summer. First patch was tacky for a couple of weeks but is fine now. And HD quickly and easily accepted return of the three bags I didn't use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alphadog Easy to apply, spreads good and the cost is reasonable
I read the reviews before I bought this patch and almost didn't buy it but, the cost compared to the competitors was so much less I had to try it. And, I'm glad I did. So far so good. In the photo I used a total of 17 bags, two of which were leftover from a competitors purchase from last year. I didn't even think they would be any good but they were. Anyway, these Quikrete bags were very easy to empty out and hardly any mess at all. The other brand is messy messy. Quikrete actually dumps out in one clump. Of course it's stiff and takes work to move around but, all in all, a decent patch. I didn't quite follow the directions like I was supposed to do. As you can see (maybe) is that it tapers out onto the drive instead of filling a hole. All this was laid on top of existing clean asphalt, albeit very low. I did follow instructions about how much to lay on the first application. Lay, tamp, run over and lay some more. Worked like a charm. For those who were griping about it not setting up, well, it takes time. The competitors took time to set also and you can see the end result of that in the photo. The diagonal strip on the right above the new stuff is the old stuff I laid a few years ago. I never thought it would set up either but it's hard as a rock. I'm sure this will do the same. It's no problem driving on it and nothing is sticking to the tires. I can even walk on it with no problems. Just make sure you tamp it down good and drive on it. I really think this is the right stuff for the money. If it fails to set or it just doesn't last before breaking up, I'll be back to complain. Otherwise, check it out.............

I filled several areas. Some smaller potholes and deep cracks and one very large pothole. The smaller potholes and cracks were also located in an area that gets full sun. The large pothole was located near the garage and is in full shade. I filled the holes during the fall. 78 degrees during the day around 55 at night.
If you plan to fill smaller potholes located in the sun your holes should be fairly dry within 2 weeks. However, if you plan to fill a larger pothole or are in a mostly shaded area you will need more like a month-6 weeks for this product to cure. I also covered the pothole near our garage with plywood so it wouldn't track which may have delayed the process a bit but was absolutely necessary. This product if put down in an area where your family walks a lot or drives will destroy your flooring inside and garage. You have to be diligent about either covering it or making sure noone walks on it.
To be honest I didn't expect it to take so long to cure but the size of the one pothole was larger than what this product is normally used for. I'm please with the results for now. We'll see after the winter. I have since sealed it with latexite sealer and it looks great. It has a rough appearance but next year I may trowel patch over it to smooth it out some.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mindless06795 Whose fault is it? Asphalt.
Used this to patch the space between garage and driveway. It spread perfectly. Wasn't a very hot day out side, and this stuff was very easy to work with. It also tamped down quite well. If you are looking to fill in some cracks in the asphalt, then this is the stuff to buy. Can be very sticky, so use gloves and treat tools with some sort of oil beforehand.

I've done asphalt repair before but this product is worse than not repairing it at all. It poured and leveled well and I wheel rolled it and followed all the directions. Could not drive or walk on it right away as the bag claimed. In fact after one week I could not walk on it without it moving just under my weight. I tried o seal over it after a week and the next day the seal coat came up off of it like a giant potato chip. I am going to dig it up and replace it with cold patch or a product from some where else

After this bad winter in Pittsburgh I got 2-large pothole's in my asphalt driveway,so I went to home depot and found this Blacktop repair,well it was easy to work with,I would put 1" layers down at a time,and would tamp it,and I also have a HUGE roller,BUT here it is 10-days later and I would love to coat my driveway BUT I can't,This blacktop repair WONT dry in spot's,you walk on it and the asphalt lift's right up,So I wouldn't Recommend this stuff,MIGHT be worth to spend somemore money on a lot better stuff

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by modan1128 This stuff is great!
I used two bags to fill in a dip in my driveway. I put a board over it so we could drive over it without tracking the sticky stuff around, and within two days it was solid. It looks nice too. I'm going to keep buying it a few bags at a time to repair a very long driveway with lots of cracks.
