Chisel the vertical edges of the hole to make them square, using a cold chisel and hammer. This will allow the patch to adhere more effectively.
Sweep the hole and surrounding area clean with a shop broom. Apply concrete and asphalt cleaner to the hole to effectively clean the damaged area for repair.
Spray the hole and surrounding area with a water hose equipped with a spray attachment. Allow the surface to dry thoroughly before continuing.
Fill the hole with Quickrete Blacktop patch so that the patch is approximately 1/2 inch above the surface.
Compact the patch so that it is level with the surface, using a tamper. Strike the patch with the tamper in an even motion to compact the patch.
Patch a hole as soon as you notice it so that it will not become more damaged.
Wear eye protection when preparing the hole for repair.
