Mastic Masters answered all my questions about the process. They offered two different products, at two different price points. They came out, measured and gave me a very competitive cost estimate. They postponed our first date to do the work due to the risk of rain. Two men came out the second opportunity, worked steady and appear to have taken no short cuts.
They were careful with the product, it wasn’t spilling over the joint edges – neat. They cleaned up after themselves. Barricaded the drive with caution tape and told me not to drive on the driveway for 24 hours and not to pressure wash for at least 30 days.
The only disappointments were; the day of the work the foreman told me it was too bad I didn’t have one section of the drive raised – I wish that recommendation would have been made when I received the estimate. The foreman explained Mastic Masters doesn’t pump up concrete but they refer to companies who do and typically follow when their work is finished. The other disappointment, I added the walkway up to my house the day of the work and I now wish I added the sidewalk in front of my house. Based on the cost to add the walk to the front door I might have been able to afford the sidewalk too.

They removed rotten wood from the driveway and walkways joints, cleaned it, pressure washed, filled the joints w/ a foam backer and poured the mastic w/ a color that suited the driveway. I used concrete raising to fix walkways and driveway( raise it) they referred me to this company . I am very satisfied w/ the result. I also learned why the driveways crack so much and it has to do not only w/ poor workmanship by the concrete people but with having the gutters spill the water on the concrete and joints and not having a good system to channel the water under the soil or w/ sleeves to the lawn.

I absolutely LOVE my new driveway! I never thought my driveway could look so good without having to replace it at 10X the cost of repairing it. From Brian … all the way down to Dave, the Team Lead and his team … were ON TIME, PROFESSIONAL and just downright AMAZING! I wish all contractors I’ve had come to my home were as awesome as these guys were!
THANK YOU Mastic Master’s for making my driveway ‘pretty’ again!

My driveway expansion joints were rotten or missing. Deep, 2″ wide gaps allowed the water under the slabs and were creating cracks and some movement in the slabs. Some smaller areas had collapsed or broken away. Dave’s crew removed all the debri and cut the joints and cracks with a diamond blade. They installed the foam and mastic compound everywhere there was a problem. When I came home from work that day, my driveway looked brand new. They matched the color of the aggregate, and they matched the color of my flagstone walkway. All the gaps were now clean and flush with the concrete. I was very impressed and wish I had done this sooner! I can’t say enough about what a good decision, and a good investment, this was for our home. Thank you Dave.

We had to have driveway and sidewalk repairs done and it was suggested to have MasticMasters replace the wooden slab dividers with their product. They did an excellent job. A few months later, some of the original sidewalk and driveway repair needed repairing again. During this time some of the mastic work had been damaged also. After the second concrete repair was completed, MasticMasters came back and replaced all damaged areas. They also took care of a few small areas that were not in the original work. MasticMasters were timely, efficient, and did all of the second repair work at no extra charge. I highly recommend this company.

Excellent work! I wish I had taken a ‘before’ picture because my driveway, sidewalk and walkway were not pretty. We had the wood replaced only a few months ago with disatrous results. Now, after the wonderful crew at Mastic Masters, everything looks absolutely perfect. They were extremely professional, courteous and did a great job! I can’t thank you enough!

The previous owners of our house had used Mastic Masters a few years ago and I was very pleased how the expansion joints were holding up over the years. We needed a few new cracks taken care of and also some replacement of joints where the slabs were drifting apart and it was stretching the mastic too thin. They came in a gave an estimate and recommended repairing rather than replacing all the work because it was holding up so well. They did a super job and it looks great. I could swear they re-did the whole driveway and pool deck because it looks so good and blends in so well with the older material. Again great job and I will refer anyone I hear of that needs expansion joint work done. Thx

Mark was very patient in explaining the pros and cons of the various products Mastic Masters offers. Once a product decision was made, his crew did a great job pressure-washing and replacing our expansion joints. They were honest, efficient, and professional. This company truly honored our agreement for services. They are out to satisfy their customer–and they did! We will recommend Mastic Masters to anyone that needs expansion joint replacement.
Thanks Mastic Masters!

Just letting you know, this Mark guy was extremely nice, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. I asked him to come to my house on his off day to give me a free estimate and he was there in time he also was able to fill me in his busy schedule to get the job done in the same week. What stand out the most to me is that he understood how bad the economy is and was willing to work with me with a plan so that we can make this happen.I was away at work when my wife called and said they arrived and it wasn’t long after she called me that they left and completed the job. I am satisfied with there service and would refer there business to my friends and family.

Just to let you know that your guys did a great job for me on my driveway and patio. They arrived on time, immediately went about unloading their equipment and layed out their hoses. The old dividers were gone in short order, the two cracks drilled out and filled and then to the power washing. The joint dividers were done just right and the concrete was sealed and taped off at the drive. Very good job and good crew.

After 16 years my home began to show signs of age that needed to be addressed now – Sept. 2010. Replacing the missing and rotted wood expansion joint separators on the front walkway and the driveway was one essential task. The choice of which material to use in place of the original wood separators was greatly simplified for me, when a plastic bag containing a 4-inch long section of Slab Gasket and a descriptive brochure appeared one day at the end of my driveway, delivered by an enterprising contractor some distance away. A few minutes spent reading the info and handling the Slab Gasket sample convinced me it was the durable, robust solution I needed. Neither Home Depot nor Lowes had it in their product lines. I wanted a local contractor, and Mastic Masters, the 2nd business name returned in a search list on Google Maps, filled the bill. After checking their web site, I called them.
Mark responded with true interest in my requirements and was eager to schedule a visit to estimate pricing. He also advised me, during the visit, to consider using mastic caulking, rather than Slab Gasket, for the joints surrounding 2 slab sections butted against the house foundation that had settled about 3 inches. That situation required 100% water diversion, which Slab Gasket does not deliver. In a nutshell, Mark delivered a technically convincing and cost-effective price estimate that I committed to on the spot. The next day he arrived with his crew, and started by removing all the remaining rotted wooden separators, followed by pressure washing the concrete surfaces. That was followed by installation of Slab Gasket and then by the mastic installation. I was truly impressed at the diligence Mark and his team sustained over the 5-6 hours needed to complete the job. Their effort paid off in a very substantial qualitative, functional, and cosmetic improvement in my property. I could not have expected more, and I sincerely recommend Mark and his team – without hesitation or reservation.

We just wanted to say how pleased we are with Mastic Masters. Mark knows his stuff. He always had time to answer my questions and explain the process. The quality of his work is impeccable. He was on the job from start to finish. He takes great pride in his work. Like an artist who paints a picture, Mark takes a patio, driveway, and sidewalk and converts drab looking concrete with rotten expansion joints making the finished product something to behold. Preparation is the key. We went the whole hog which involved rotten expansion joint removal, flushing out the joints, acid washed the rust stains, then pressure washed everything in order to prepare the joint for the new application. Am I glad we did. It looks absolutely beautiful. And he did not charge one penny more than his quotation. I don’t hesitate offering him my highest recommendation. Top quality job! Top quality man! Do your research, then choose Mark.

Thank you internet – a quick search for driveway expansion joint filling located Mark’s Mastic Masters website and the rest is pleasant history. Our 1990 house, corner lot, has 465 feet of driveway and sidewalk expansion joints, all with rotten wood, dirt, ants, and weeds. Do it myself, sure I thought about it, then pictured spilling the super-sticky polymer filler all over the driveway. Mark provided a reasonable, professional quote, quick responses to all calls, and did an unbelievable job the day of the work. No muss, no fuss, just first rate work. He staked out the sidewalks and driveway to prevent traffic during curing and the next day we had great looking sidewalks and driveway. We are extremely pleased – thank you Mark!

Knowing it was a bad idea to leave the joints in my driveway and sidewalks empty once the wood forms had rotted away, I’d been looking for a DIY solution or service like this for years but couldn’t find anything. Then I found this website and Mastic Masters! Mark did a great job on my driveway; he really knows what he’s doing. My drive and walkways looks better than new and I’m really enjoying the thought of not having to constantly weed all those cracks again. Of course, now that the joints are filled with mastic, they don’t get filled with debris–which makes clean-up after mowing easier as well. This is a great product and Mark provides top-notch, professional service. Who doesn’t want hassle-free driveways? You need this!

My home was built in 1986 and the concrete driveway and sidewalks were showing their age with discoloration. The wood joints in the driveway were either missing or rotting. Last summer, I hired Mark of MasticMasters to update my sidewalks and driveway. I had all surfaces pressure washed and sealed. I had the expansion joints filled with Mastic to replace all of the wood. The Mastic prevents weeds and sub soil erosion of the concrete.
The Mastic works like a charm. I no longer have to dig out weeds from the driveway joints or use dangerous chemicals that can possibly get into the water system. Mark matched the Mastic color to match the driveway.
Here we are a year later and my home still has that new home look since the driveway and sidewalks are so sparkling clean. The sealant keeps dirt and rainwater rolling off like a protective raincoat. I can feel the sealant doing its job when I walk on the concrete.
I am very pleased with how the job really improved the look of my home.

We contacted Mastic Masters to get a quote for a coping repair. Mark promptly provided a quote and schedule the work to begin the very next day. He applied mastic to the expansion joint and power washed and sealed the pool deck, driveway and front entrance. He was extremely professional from initial contact to completion of the work. The work was done as promised with precision and care. Mark takes pride in his work and it shows.

I purchased the D.I.Y Mastic kit to repair the joint between the decking and the stone bordering my pool and hot tub. I was quoted prices of between $4.50 to $6.00 a foot. With 140 feet to do I decided to go the “do it yourself” route. The product is an excellent value and instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I would like to caution those D.I.Y’s out there that surface preparation is about 70 % of this job. Removal of the old mastic down to clean stone and clean concrete is where all the work is. I used a linoleum knife, a 4″ angle grinder with a dewalt wire brush, and a wire brush to remove all traces of the old mastic. Safety goggles , knee pads and good leather gloves are also necessary. Once I had the surfaces prepared, application of the product took about 4 hours. I estimate that I saved about $500.00 bucks by doing it myself. If you have a strong back and you are not afraid of a little work, you can do this. GMS.
I had my entire driveway, patio, and sidewalk done about a month ago. Mark and his team were professional, thorough, and quite easy to work with. As a testament to their dedication and customer satisfaction, however, we noticed that there was one, 16″ strip of expansion joint that had inadvertently been left and not replaced. I called them and within 36 hours Mark and his assistant were at my house correcting what I noticed a month after they had done the work – no questions asked, just work done – and with a smile I might add. I highly recommend Mark and his team for any of your work – I know you will be more than satisfied.

We have a U-shaped driveway that serves as the entrance to our home. The wood was coming out of the joints and weeds were a constant battle. We had Mark do our drive joints and it really looks great. I appreciated Mark’s quick response and he delivered on time and the driveway looks great. Now the entrance to our home is one that looks beautiful.

We needed the pool coping seam and pool deck expansion joints caulked. The expansion joints were rotten and I don’t believe the coping was ever sealed when the pool was built. I had several parties come and quote the job but Mark impressed us with his prompt, friendly response, informative web site and fair price. Unlike a lot of contractors that I have dealt with, Mark quickly returned our phone calls, did the job when he said he would and above all else, did a great job! We were so pleased with the results that we got Mark to do our entire driveway the following week. Our 40 year old driveway looks great now after Mark pressure washed the entire surface and caulked the seams and cracks.

Mark is an extremely hard worker and very dedicated to his job and committment to his clients.
He placed mastic in our large back patio, driveway and front walkway in the peak of summer last year and powerwashed the same. He did a great job, came back to check on it after it was done and came back to fill in some “sink holes” that had developed.
His communication skills are great. He is prompt to reply to either email or phone calls, very courteous and very professional.
He gave us a great quote for the work. I’m happy to give my business to someone like Mark rather than the bigger companies where you are treated like a “job” rather than a person.

I had Mark come and pressure wash my pool deck, and concrete around the house, plus redo all the expansion joints. Good job by Mark. Prompt and on time plus it was a good price compared to a couple of other quotes. Nice work and holding up nicely. Had one missed spot and Mark came right back and fixed the problem, so very good on service after the job is paid off. Shows a lot of committment by Mark to get the job done well! Thanks.

After removing what little rotten wood was left after many years of rotting away, and pressure washing my three car drive and front sidewalk, I started looking for alternatives to replace the expansion joints. After looking at many other very expensive methods, I lucked across MASTIC MASTERS while doing a google search. After reading the many favorable reviews on this site, I decided to contact Mark. He happened to be working close to my area and he was able to come by and give me an estimate within hours of calling him (and he answered his phone immediately-no voice mail-no taking a message and waiting days to hear back from someone-which is unheard of nowadays).
His bid was a very welcome surprise!! I had really researched for DIY methods and Mark was able to do my driveway and front walkway BOTH for less than I would have probably wound up paying for the materials alone- not to mention the time and learning curve-it would have taken for a novice, like myself to do the labor.
Luckily for me, he had an opening in his busy schedule which allowed him to come back the very next day and complete the job. I let him choose the color he thought would match best and the job TURNED OUT GREAT. No more weeds growing in the joints, no more using weed killer, no more washing out under my concrete. Best of all no more wood to rot away again.
I am VERY PLEASED and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mark and MASTIC MASTER to anyone with expansion joints to be replaced.

MasticMaster re-worked all expansion joints in our driveway and walks, and filled the joints between our cement-block patio, house, and garage. From past engineering experience I believe the materials usedwere top quality, and were installed in a neat, professional, and workmanlike fashion. We are very pleased and offer our best recommendations for MasticMaster.com.

My home is 9 years old and most all of the wooden expansion joints were rotten. The resulting weeds were an eyesore and required constant treatment with weed killers. As a self-proclaimed DIY’er I researched and contemplated replacing the expansion joints myself. During the process I contacted Mark for some information and following his input I decided I would leave this project to the professional. What a great decision!! Mark was able to give me a quote over the phone and completed the job within a few days our initial discussion. Not only did he replace the expansion joints, but I had him pressure wash the concrete drive and walk and it has never looked better. Great Job!!! Thanks Mark!!

I have been involved as a manufacture and distributor of joint sealants for over a decade. I am familiar with the products/sealants used, surface preparation and workmanship expected. I chose Mastic Masters to seal my concrete joints in my home because I knew Mark would do a fantastic job. Great prices for great quality work. Thank you Mark.

We had gotten estimates from two other firms to fill the expansion joints in our drive, sidewalk and patio, when we asked Mark to also give us an estimate. His quote was considerably less than the other two and he also came to give us the quote promptly and on time. We did go look at some other houses where he had done work and found that he had done well. We later had him do the work for us and found that he came to do the job at the appointed time, was very careful with his work and did a fine job. We highly recommend him.

I recently had my patterned concrete driveways, decks, and walkways leveled and the contractor recommended Mark to replace the mastic joint sealer in the concrete. I then hired Mark to clean and apply sealer to over 7500 sq. ft. of concrete. They did a great job. They moved all of the many plant containers, furniture, etc. and did an expert power wash and sealer application. Mark is one of the few contractors who shows up when he says he will be there and does more than expected. This was a BIG job and Mark handled it like the pro that he is, I’m impressed and would absolutely recommend him to others based on my experience. Good Job Mark.. Thanks.

I contacted Mark after receiving a bid that seemed expensive. I found Mark to be very pleasant and easy to deal with. Mark came to my home on a Saturday to look at my job and provide me with an estimate. Mark also came ready to work in case I decided to move forward. I did give Mark the job for the deco type seal around the swimming pool and even had Mark redo all of the expansion joints in the front yard. The wood had rotted out so badly that weeds and debris filled the area. Mark spend a good 8 hours on the job and left it in excellent shape. I even had Mark come back to power wash ALL of my concrete and seal it. I would highly recommend Mark!

We found Mark Hanes in website. He answered and came promptly to our place at Katy on the very same day and gave an estimate accordingly with his telephone conversation
He is Prompt, professional and did great job.
Not only we are happy with his work, but we recommended him to our neighbors.
I got a quote from Mark after I had seen him working on my neighbors house.
He filled in all the expansion joints on my driveway, patio and walkways. He had to work around the weather, but finished in two days. The job looks great. I’m thinking of having him do a power wash and apply a sealant to the concrete.
Great job Mark.
My wife saw a review of Mark’s work in the Longwood Homeowners newsletter and asked me to get a quote to fix the developing cracks around our Pool. He responded to my call with an estimated time to come out and see our situation. “Stuff” came up but he always followed up and kept us informed. He came, he saw and gave us the requested quote. We asked him to do the work and were definitely satisfied with the work on the Pool and requested that he do the driveway and entry walkway, too.
Mark is prompt, professional and does excellent work.
Mark came out to do my drive way and sidewalk this week in the Sugar Mill Estates. I was very impressed.I first heard of him by word of mouth from my neighbors.Everyone has said only great things about the professional work he did for them.I agree with them.

Being in the concrete leveling business only and not replacing
or repairing expansion joints, customers need the joints filled
in driveways and walkways to keep water from further eroding the sub-surface soil. I found Mastic Masters earlier this year
and have referred all customers to them who need expansion joint repair or replacement.
Mark Hanes has been a total success in the eyes of the customers that we have referred him to, and he is most expert and highly professional in filling my customers needs and one
heckuva nice person.
We highly recommend him.

I hired Mark in July 2008 to seal the expansion joints in all our outside concrete.
Our house is 10 years old and we were having lots of weeds and rotted wood in these exp. joints.
Mark did a great job and at a reasonable price. I definitely recommend him.
In fact, 6 of my neighbors in my cul de sac had this job done by Mark as well.
Last week, I power washed all the outside concrete and with the new mastic it really looks great.
Email me if you’d like to come to my house in Longwood and look
