Question Concrete driveway cracks

Is there a fairly inexpensive way to fix them?

JB is the man with the answers, but I would guess they caused by driveway not being reinforced and dirt settling beneath the driveway, therefore I would think resurfacing would most likely end up cracking.


I've got the same problem. Just living with it and dreading the day I may have to replace my driveway and or garage floor.

Im thinking more along the lines of some kind of filler/sealer. Just wondering how good it works or if it works at all.

Is it a hairline crack or something more substantial? They make some heavy duty concrete epoxy, expensive and quick drying but it works.

There are two kinds of concrete:

1.Cracked
2.Going to crack

You can buy a concrete crack sealer in a tube that fits into a caulk gun. It keeps water from entering, freezing and causing further damage. Not really anything to worry about.

You don't fix cracks in concrete. You might seal them up for a number of days...but they aren't going away unless whatever settling or root push problem is addressed. That is why I was asking what it was he wanted to accomplish. Just for looks, preventative against weather or a real FIX.

Oh, ok. I don't know too much about it. Maybe this Abraham fellow can help.
