"Asphalt Driveway - All Things Related"



Summary: an asphalt driveway can cost a fortune to have replaced. Do-it-yourself (DIY) asphalt driveway repair is not rocket science but there are many products in the market to choose from and some are good and some, not so good. Here, I hope to provide you some useful information on repairing your driveway.



I have 150 foot long X 8 feet wide driveway with additional 40 foot wide X 10 feet deep parking area.

Was resurfaced in 1990.

Was hot sealed in 1990.

In 2012, large tree right beside driveway was blown over in storm and driveway severely turn apart.

As driveway level with garage, top layer would have to be removed to re-asphalt and estimated cost was $10,000.



In my case, had the worse case scenario: asphalt had to be completely replaced where tree roots tore up and cracks in other places related to tree roots.
