I've got a driveway that has a few small cracks in it and has started to spall badly in the last couple of years. I've read up on a few products like Kwikrete, which is applied as a topping over existing cement in a layer of 1/16 to 1/8 inch. I know it's important to patch any holes/cracks and clean with hi-pressure washer before using such a product. I live in Winnipeg Canada which has Minnesota like conditions and want to know if anyone has tried this, how long it lasts, if adding an acrylic bonding agent to portland cement/sand mix and putting it on as a slurry mix would do the same thing? Or can anyone suggest alternate products. Thought it was worth pursuing as the pictures I've seen make it seem like a miracle cure for ugly driveways. thanks for your input.

Quik-Crete or any othet type of topping cement is a complete waste of money.

The only type of coating you can place over a deteriorating concrete dirve is a costly industrial type epoxy coating such as can be found here:

Or remove and replace the drive.
