Repairing your Crumbling Driveway
LESLIE: Heading out west to Oregon, where Janet is having some issues with a driveway. Tell us about the problem.JANET: Hi. It’s crumbling … (chuckles)LESLIE: OK.JANET: … and cracking and it just looks awful and I’d like to find something that I could resurface it with. Is there some product that could go over the existing concrete?TOM: Yeah, Janet. There’s a product called Abocrete – A-b-o-c-r-e-t-e – and it’s made by a company called Abatron – A-b-a-t-r-o-n. That’s their website, Abatron.com. This is a multi-part product. It’s an epoxy patching compound. You mix it together and it is incredibly durable stuff. It’s unaffected by saltwater, by oils, by other chemicals. It will hold to any type of deteriorated concrete surface and basically allow you to rebuild the deteriorated surface that’s right there.Now, if you’re doing a big driveway, you might need quite a bit of this and you’re going to have to decide whether the cost of the product is worth it or maybe you just want to tear the driveway out and start again. But that’s the product to use to resurface it.JANET: OK. Wonderful. Well, I thank you for your information.TOM: You’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
