Pros:You can patch your driveway anytime of the year.

Cons:Wear gloves so your hands won't blister from tampering.

The Bottom Line: I found this product very easy to work with and has made my driveway look a whole lot better.


Between yesterday and today I/We have been fixing the pot holes in my driveway. When I had my driveway installed at four inches thick, I even paid extra to have it highway compressed. The first year I seal coated it and have repeated it twice since then. Over the winter this year I’ve been watching pot holes starting to form from where the trucks sit and oil and gas have leaked on the black top. Since most black top companies use distillate bio diesel solvent products to keep the crushed rock together, all it takes is a few times being dripped on and the rocks become loose. I looked on the internet because I was going to just cement the holes closed.  I went to the Lowe’s Web Site and found this Sakrete Cold Patch Asphalt 50 pound bags to repair driveways.


I bought 6 bags at $15.00 a bag with my contractors discount; these fifty pound bags cover 2 square feet if the pot holes are 2 inches deep. Most of mine were all the way down to the bare bottom. First off, each hole has to be cleaned and prepared; this is simple by getting out all the bad stone and sweeping it away. Then I took a water hose and washed each hole out and finally had Miguel put on a backpack blower and dry each hole and to see if any other loose asphalt would shake loose. Directions are easy to follow; you must work in 2 inch layers, with each layer being tamped down until I saw the materials compressing together. The contents are recycled asphalt, limestone, sand, liquid asphalt mixture, and hydrocarbon oil. When I finished each hole, I had Miguel get on the tractor and using the edge of a grass/lawn roller and giving it a great seal. The first thing I did this morning was take my little Nissan Frontier truck and roll over the holes again. When the guys came in, we seal coated the whole driveway so I have to wait until Sunday before I can get on it. This Sakrete is guaranteed shelf life if left in storage. The contents are in a 2 ml poly-plastic bag.


This product can be used all year round, from winter to summer it is guaranteed to bond or you can take the bag back for a new one. The materials are easy to compress with a 10 pound tamper. The easiest way I found to make the top of the filled pothole level with the driveway was making an inch hump over the filled hole and tamping it harder forcing a hard compression. Overall this Sakrete Asphalt Cold patch is very easy to work with; yes it does smell like that new highway asphalt smell. It spreads easy and tamps easy and something that was going to take up a full days work only took 4 hours to do.
Thanks for reading!!!
