Only our driveway on our street is crumbling especially at the bottom where it meets the street. We are responsible for our driveway I understand that part. Is there a way we can repair our own driveway ourselves and how? Thank you so much!

    If you live in a cold climate and you have snowplows rumbling past it is hard to keep the edge of the driveway that meets the street nice looking. You can buy asphalt in a 5 gallon large can. Maybe that is something that would work for you.

    It sounds as if your concrete is too thin. Talk with your local hardware store about a solution. They should be able to offer DIY videos or pamphlets. If not check out YOUTUBE! It has a great source of videos on all kinds of topics.

      Thank you for answering me back! It,is concrete William. And we are the only driveway like this. We aren’t rough on it. In fact we part in our garage, I just can’t understand it.

    As Karen suggests the concrete may be too thin or not a good substrate. Movement of vehicles on the street can cause cracking. Best way would be to remove any loose concrete if there is any. Make make sure there is gravel underneath the concrete. Use a latex polymer modified concrete to do the repair whether to fill in or just patching. New concrete will not adhere to old. The polymers in modified concrete allow a bond and less chance of cracking.
