Our previous 1/2″ “shorty” and 5/8″ sizes have been modified with an internal gap to make them work better. The gap allows them to fit into the joints because it squeezes more, where the old solid versions didn’t. The 5/8″ version is the perfect fit to replace the black fiber board between the driveway and garage slabsRead More
It is important to keep your driveway clean in areas that are super shady and exhibit black mildew. I have such an area on my sidewalk/testing lab next to my garage that never sees the sun and is in constant shade. I failed to periodically bleach clean and pressure wash that area and the black pigment from the mildew leeched into the top of the SlabGasket. I have had customers stain or paint SlabGasket. Any paint that will stick to vinyl will stick to SlabGasket, although in high traffic areas will eventually wear off. SlabGasket is not warranted against mildew staining. Besides me, I have only had two customers out of nearly 10,000 who have ever said anything about this. Most of us really just want it to work and not so worried about how it looks over time...Read More
NO UP FRONT COST! NO INVENTORY REQUIREMENT! PURCHASE BY THE FOOT!
SlabGasket dealers enjoy a way to add $$$ to their main business by selling/installing SlabGasket. There is no cost whatever to becoming a SlabGasket dealer. There is no requirement ever to purchase any inventory. You may at some point decide to maintain some inventory, but with all the sizes and two colors we offer, we recommend purchasing what you need for each job. We furnish free marketing material to help you sell SlabGasket. We sell SlabGasket by the foot because it is not unusual to need more than one size. SlabGasket comes in 50 foot rolls, but if you need two 30 foot sections, we will send it to you that way instead of sending you a 50 and a 10.Read More
Folks, I have seen some beautiful concrete overlays and sprayed on decking. I just had an inquiry from “Ryan”, who was asking about the use of SlabGasket in conjuction with the above. His question is “I wanted to find out if this product could be used with some of the concrete overlay or spray on decking used around pools? Would those coatings be put on first and then the slabgasket or could you use the slabgasket then put down the coating so there could be one uniform surface?”
This is a good question, and most of us need to ask more questions when we hire a contractor to do any home repair or remodeling job. How many times do we have to settle for less than we expected? I answered Ryan this way:
Ryan, thank you for your interest in SlabGasket. Here are my experiences so far...Read More

An Expansion Joint is used when a driveway is poured to allow for expansion of the concrete and help keep the driveway from cracking. Until recently, the expansion joint was generally a 1×4 board used with wooden stakes to frame around the concrete pour areas. The construction crew nails a frame of wood and pours the concrete inside the frame to form a sidewalk or driveway. After the concrete dries, the outside boards and stakes are removed. The inside boards and stakes remain as expansion joints. Recently, true expansion joints have been replaced by control joints. A control joint is designed to control where the expanding driveway will crack. In this case, the boards used are 1×2 or shorter, and a frame is staked and nailed together...Read More
