Best product to use for a blacktop driveway
 
I have a black top driveway that is 12 years old. Every 2-3 years I resurface it with something from the local home center. I aso mix a little sand in to fill the cracks. Now it's getting older and the crackes keep coming back.
I want to use a superior product on it but don't know a good one from a bad except for what the label saids. So I was hoping someone would have a recommendation not only for what to use to resurface but aslo what to fill the cracks with. The seasons are burtal here in the midwest. Thanks

your cracks keep coming back because they weren't properly repaired,,, sand has no expansion/contraction,,, properly prep the crk & seal w/dow/corning 890sl,,, there isn't anything in an apron store to properly fix them so find a pro const supply house & read/understand the technique on dow's w/site.

no financial interest - just did that work for 20yrs,,, good luck !
