Brilliant Driveways - An Easy Do-It-Yourself Project


(ARA) - Every homeowner wants a beautiful, maintenance-free blacktop driveway, but most asphalt driveways suffer from pavement discolorations like skid marks and oil stains, or damage like rock salt pits, scrapes, gouges and cracks.

A small crack can easily overtake entire driveway slabs and petroleum stains may give the impression of run-down property. Simple do-it-yourself maintenance can repair damage, improve property appearance and eliminate the costly and often inconvenient process of hiring and managing a contractor.

Professional grade driveway resurfacing products are now available for homeowners at home centers like Home Depot and hardware stores nationwide. These professional grade products are easy to apply, can improve driveway traction and make virtually any driveway look brand new.

To restore the rich black color of an asphalt driveway in one easy coat, homeowners need to select a premium driveway resurfacing product rather than a driveway sealer. The best known product in this class is the Henry 532 Driveway Resurfacer, a no-stir black gel that is applied with a squeegee and has a six-year stay-black warranty.

Be sure to follow all included instructions on any resurfacing product, and select products that have the application steps printed on the package. Follow these basic steps for a perfect driveway resurfacing job.

1. Clean Driveway: Sweep off dust, dirt and loose stones. Remove grass and weeds from edges and cracks. Scrub oil and grease spots with soap and a stiff wire brush. Rinse and let dry.

2. Repair Minor Damage: Remove loose debris, fill surface voids to just above the pavement surface, tap down and allow patches to cure. Cracks and holes (up to 1/2" wide) should be filled with Henry Crack Filler and Henry 304 Patching Mix should be used for areas with significant damage (1/2" to 2" wide).

3. Resurface and Seal: The weather must generally be warmer than 50 degrees and dry for two straight days. Starting in the morning, mist the driveway and sweep away excess water. Apply Henry 532 with a squeegee only -- not a brush or roller -- and push excess gel into cracks and holes. Wait 48 hours minimum before driving on coating. Read all the products instructions, call (800) 598-7663 or visit www.Henry.com for driveway resurfacing ideas, how-to guides and information on quality products.
