Sue on Jun 15, 2017Hi Jen. I had the same problem with my 1922 home. I had a crack from my front door and down the 1st step. I used Quikrete Crack Seal. This is a pourable product that comes in a 1qt bottle with a tip for pouring. It will seal cracks up to 1/2in wide. If the crack is deeper than 1/4in you will have to fill it with some fine sand up to the 1/4 in depth before using it I was surprised how easy it was. I did it 2yrs ago and so far it's holding up greatHelpful Reply
Sue on Jun 15, 2017Sorry Jen. I forgot to tell you, you can get the pourable Quikrete at Home Depot and probably Lowes . I really believe you will have an easy time and good results with this.Helpful Reply
