It's Asphalt.........

But then again....I wouldn't have an asphalt driveway....

So....my contribution would be...rip up the asphalt and put in a real driveway made of concrete......then in 5 years you ask us about the concrete cracks....which will be a lot smaller.....

On a side note.....that actually does not look that bad....has kind of a neat 'patena' look to it.

William, the driveway is asphalt. Try to make your posts relevant to the topic at hand.

Driveway cracks


Asphalt driveways are the norm in Ontario, concrete the exception. That is Ontario Canada, not Ontario California.

Ayuh,.... Same on this side of the creek,...
Asphalt gives with the changes in weather,..
Concrete heaves, cracks, 'n breaks up...

The driveway in this thread needs an overlay, or replacement...
It's already been Waayyy over sealcoated...
