concrete fill


I have a gap between my concrete garage floor where it meets the driveway pad anywhere between 1/4 t0 1/2". What is the best material with which to fill this?

A self leveling filler. Google Sika.

You will want to buy some backer rod also to place in the gap then pour self leveler over that.

Use backer rod and silicon caulk to fill it. Anything that hardens will crack in short order!
