DAP Blacktop Asphalt Filler & Sealant

What's to love: Cracks in asphalt can let water in, which leads to more cracking and crumbling. This product by Dap will help prevent more damage by sealing out moisture.

What does it do: A caulk gun is used to apply the ready-to-use sealant on gaps and cracks on asphalt surfaces such as driveways, basketball courts, parking lots and other asphalt surfaces. It dries to a waterproof matte black and can be smoothed by using a trowel or putty knife dampened with mineral spirits. It is UV light resistant and also resists oil, grease and salt. It's made so that it won't bubble or crack with temperature changes, says the company, and can be coated with asphalt or tar-based driveway dressings. List price is $13.38.
