Treat your driveway well and it will make your whole house look good.

Brilliant Driveways -- An Easy Do-It-Yourself Project

 

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.
