What is hot rubberized crack sealer
Hot rubberized crack sealant is a flexible, commercial-grade product used to repair cracks in asphalt. It begins as a solid, rubbery block, but is melted into liquid and applied into a crack. This liquid then hardens and prevents moisture from penetrating the asphalt.
What causes cracks to form?
- A poor foundation
- Not putting down a thick enough layer of asphalt
- Putting down a layer that’s too thick
- Improperly blended asphalt
- Tree roots
- The freeze/thaw cycle
- Earth movement
- Heavy vehicles
Water will enter the asphalt’s foundation if cracks are left unchecked, leading to further damage. Regular driveway maintenance is critical to extending the life of your asphalt, so be sure to repair all cracks with asphalt crack sealer.
How do I know when to repair?

This is especially true on driveways that haven’t been properly seal-coated The best way to deal with cracks is to fill them in as they appear.
