Asphalt concrete is a common material used for both roads and driveways because it is durable and easy to work with. Over time, water damage and ground movement can cause slight dips in the surface. If you want to fix these depressions so the surface is level, you can do so with a basic patching method. Even for those uninitiated with the project, fixing dips may take as little as 30 minutes to complete.
Pour the asphalt cold-patching material into the wheelbarrow basin.
Position the wheelbarrow next to the dips on your asphalt driveway.
Scoop the cold-patching material out of the wheelbarrow with a shovel and deposit the material into the dips.
Firmly compact the cold patch with a tamping tool. Add additional cold patch, then compact it until it is level with the surrounding asphalt surface. After 24 hours, you can seal the entire driveway with a waterproof sealant.
