    The temperature can affect a lot of things, including concrete. If there are changes in temperatures across the season, it would be reasonable to expect some damage to the concrete. Checking the concrete before and after each season would be a good way to fix any cracks before it becomes serious.

    Hello

    After filling in the cracks with the flexible sealant I used a colored sealer on my driveway. It has been down two years now it has not peeled off

    Is there an exterior type of paint to be used on an existing driveway after repairing the cracks?
    Your response will be appreciated.
