asphalt drive sealers ?


my driveway has never been sealed. its 5y/o, and looks in pretty good condition. i was looking at the sealers at HD etc. i have "heard" that those are not that good, but i "hear" a lot of things (if you know what i mean).
so i thought i would ask you guys. thanx

They're better than what the Gypsy's who come around will do for you.

Read the directions and then follow the directions.
You'll be OK.

Ayuh,... It's the same sealer the Gypsy's use,...

They just cut their's by 1/2, with water....

Sealing is kinda a waste of time 'n money, unless yer seein' Cracking...

'n if yer gettin' Crackin',... Use the sand added sealer, it's thicker with more body...

first pic is the crack. 2nd pic is the length, and i have about 15" behind me. i have yet to measure it. i am guessing about 100' long.
3rd, you can see the berries that a tree is dropping on my drive . and my trucks. the silver is my daily. the black is my HOT ROD.
