Changing sizes in-line

We don’t recommend having in-line splices but it is possible to cut a V-notch out of both the top and bottom of the larger size just enough to be able to squeeze the end of the larger piece together to match the end of the smaller piece.

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 slabs

Keep your driveway clean

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 or discoloration of any kind. Besides me, I have only had a few customers out of over 20,000 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...

SlabGasket, you ROCK!

SlabGasket Driveway Expansion Joint Replacement

August 3, 2012

Dear SlabGasket:

I recently finished installing SlabGasket in my back yard patio. I’m so very pleased with the results and how it looks, that I had to communicate my complete satisfaction in written form!

SlabGasket is easy to install, maintain, and looks great! You made an ardous chore more enjoyable and less stressful; the hardest part of the project is the removal of the rotted wood. SlabGasket, you ROCK!

I’m looking forward to my next SlabGasket project with a smile on my face!

Kindest Regards,

James

Will SlabGasket work between pool deck and coping?

Chris, I have been out of town and I don’t see where your question was answered, so . . .

Sometimes it will.

BUT – Most of the time the gap between the pool coping and pool deck is not a uniform gap in width OR depth where SlabGasket could work. You would have to pull some of the goop out and look to see. You wouldn’t want to grind out the coping, but the deck can be ground out with a concrete blade to make SlabGasket work, and I have done it on both residential and community pools, but the labor time can last days and lots of concrete blades (not cheap). If SlabGasket is not an option, you might consider a product called Crack-stix. Google that and see if that product might work better for your application. As I recall, it requires a torch to melt into the joint.

Another new size! 1″

Continuing our quest to offer a full line of widths, SlabGasket now has 1″! We have had numerous inquiries to get us to offer a one inch width. Testing has begun on the new die we received this past week. A little more tweaking and the 1″ size will be ready! As an installer myself, I have had numerous instances where the 7/8″ width was too loose, but the 1-1/8″ was too large. Up to now, I have been grinding out concrete to be able to fit the 1-1/8″ size to the gap. This is really not all that difficult when using a diamond concrete blade, but this will make installations much easier.
