Hi, I'm Chris Palmer. Welcome to Chris' Workshop. Today, I'm going to show you how to patch some cracks in your driveway. For cracks a half inch or smaller in your concrete, go ahead and fill them with liquid crack filler, available at your local home center. It's very easy to use and it's a nice way to keep your driveway in good shape. You want to clean all the loose debris out of the crack. I like to use a five in one tool. It's got a really nice hook for kind of pulling all the loose stuff out but whatever you have around is fine. It's not a critical thing. Just get it nice and clean of loose debris. The next thing you want to do is really shake up this product well, cut the tip like you would a caulk gun. Make the opening appropriate to the size crack you want to fill and then just pour it right into the crack. You might want to do two or three different applications, waiting 24 hours in between each. Fill it until it's nice and flush with the level of your driveway and that's all there is to it.
