Q:The directions say the product covers 350 square feet. Is that assuming 2 thin coats?
by|Apr 19, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thanks for the question. The product will cover, on average, 350 square feet per bucket for one coat. A thinner coat will of course spread further but in order to get the dry film thickness you need, we do not suggest thinning it out. The coverage will also vary depending on the surface conditions and texture. If you refer to our website there is a "how much should I buy" calculator. www.gardnercoatings.com. Due to the limited information we have on the surface in question, if you'd like to call our technical department to further discuss the project details and get additional product information and proper prep and application instructions you can reach them at 1-800-237-1155

    Q:if applied by roller what size best
    by|Apr 13, 2022
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  I do not use a roller. I use a driveway squeegee. Mine is 18” wide. The hard rubber allows me to apply more pressure on the sealer to force it into the surface irregularities.

    by|Apr 13, 2022

      A:  We recommend spreading the product with a brush or squeegee, not a roller. In an effort to distribute the product evenly, you want to complete coat in one continuous wet application to prevent uneven color or sheen. Do not allow to puddle and touch up areas as needed.

        Q:How many cans do I need to seal a 2060 square foot driveway.
        by|Apr 12, 2022
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  I have a similar size driveway and used 7 cans.

        by|Apr 13, 2022

          A:  For driveways in average condition, apply 350 sq. ft. per 5 gallon bucket. The coverage varies based on the surface condition and texture of the driveway. Keep in mind that the condition of the driveway will also determine whether you need 1 or 2 coats. Due to the limited information we have on the surface this product will be applied to, please read the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for further product information and proper prep and application instructions. You’ll find the TDS and helpful how-to videos on the individual product page at www.gardnercoatings.com. You can also reach our technical department at 1-800-237-1155

            Q:Can you add sand to this to increase traction?
            by|Oct 2, 2020
            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  Great product. each 4.75 gallon covered approximately 200 sq. ft. for my application

            by|Jul 8, 2021

              A:  Driveway Sealers are not designed to enhance traction, however they can. The product noted above contain sand for traction. The 10 year has higher solids so you can actually add more sand to it to increase the surface texture even more. You can add about 1 pound per gallon, and that will help. Also, use a driveway brush, not a squeegee as the brush will provide more texture. Apply the brush strokes from a side to side direction in the opposite direction of the incline. This will also help traction. Hope those tips help and good luck with the project! For best results, make sure you apply product in the morning hours on a warm clear day with plenty of sunshine so the product dries properly. Due to the limited information we have on your project, please read the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for further product information, proper prep and application instructions. You'll find the TDS and helpful how-to videos on the individual product page of www.gardnercoatings.com. We take great pride in helping you achieve a successful project. Our employees and owners love to hear product feedback and hopefully your high marks, so please come back and share your experience! Sharing pictures is also very helpful to others and that is always appreciated too!

                DIY asphalt sealer
                Purchased this to seal a driveway that had been sealed professionally 7 years ago, and to which I made cold pack repairs (Sackcrete and Quickcrete in cracks filled with Crackstick). I purchased 5 buckets to test coverage. In my application 5 buckets covered 870 square feet (174 square feet per bucket) including several coats on Sackcrete repairs (uses more product that flat, level asphalt). This was a single coat coverage which looked fine and I do not plan to apply a 2nd coat even though the directions recommend it. The coverage looks to be about 1/16th of an inch in my application. Based on that experience, I'm purchasing an additional 12 buckets for the remaining driveway. Pricey product, but still WAY less than hiring an asphalt company. The directions recommend THIN coats for a reason. I applied thick coats over the repairs and as the product dried, cracks appeared. It looked like the surface dries faster in the sun than the lower levels. As the surface dried, it shrank a bit and cracks appeared. It was easy to fix -- just step on the cracks as they dry and push them down, then apply product to fill the cracks. I should have paid attention to the directions as the problem did NOT occur in the thin layers applied with a squegee over the unrepaired asphalt. A couple tips. Use a broom to "cut in" the edges, like you would when painting a room. The broom was also helpful in filling voids, cracks and little holes. You actually can clean this up with water, so clean your squeegee at the end of the day. You'll also need to stir the buckets even if you turn them upside down overnight, but the stirring is not hard. When you turn the buckets upside down, put them on newspaper as 4 out of 5 of mine dribbled on the garage floor. No big deal unless you're a garage floor neatnik. Apply one bucket at a time, give it an hour or so to dry (which it will easily do if your driveway is in direct sun), then you can use your broom to brush in any missed spots and step on the product as needed to apply the next bucket. This is really messy stuff, so wear clothes and shoes you can throw away. Coverage on Sackcrete's asphalt repair is better than on Quickcrete's product. The latter has a pretty rough surface, which requires application with a broom working product into the patch and the patch takes a month or so to cure. In the picture, you can see the Quickcrete cold patch and what the driveway looked like before and after applying the product.

                Thanks for sharing your experience with Gardner Pro 7. Two thin coats are definitely the way to go for better, longer lasting results.

                  This product is advertised as no-stir. Some of the buckets only required a minimum of stirring to ensure they were mixed well. However, some of the buckets must have been sitting for over a year as they required at least 10-15 minutes of stirring to loosen up the sediment on the bottom of the can. Even then, it didn't mix well. For the cans that did mix well, the product spread and covered nicely.

                  Ordered 2 cans of Drive Seal 8 for two driveway approaches. Product was easy to mix and flowed very easily onto the asphalt. Stiff brush and a squeegee on a long pole are a must. Product spread very well and easy to apply. Recommend that you order more than you need and tape off any concrete or trim that you do not want product on. Remove tape before it sets up. Would use again.

                  2nd time using the 8 year version and it is worth the additional cost. Fills cracks better and applies more smoothly.
