DIY hot asphalt driveway crack repair experience?
I've tried the many cold pour crack fillers, but they all fail after one season (here in northern CA). Looks like the only way to do it right is for a hot repair, but the equipment appears only available to the pros. I'm thinking of buying a propoane stove, a cast iron pot and some blocks of commercial hot crack filler (in solid blocks), then melting them down in the stove+pot and hand pouring into the cracks. Has anyone done this? Any suggested ways to keep the cost down?
I have seen the 'Crack-Stix' product, but not sure if this is as good as doing the pour technique? Any thoughts on this?
