    Default Driveway/Garage threshold

    My asphalt driveway is crumbling where it meets the cement threshold of my garage. The culprit is water dripping down over the years from the gutters. There is a small void on one side of the garage door frame I've tried to fill in with sand but this is just a quick fix. There is also a hollow sound when I tap around the threshold. Fortunately I only use the garage for storage so I'm not concerned about the weight of a car on this area. What is the best way to prevent any real damage?

    Divert the water run off to keep it out from under the asphalt and garage footings. Chip up a section of the asphalt, fill the void, lay new asphalt over the patch area.

    The void can be filled with the chipped up asphalt or gravel or compacted soil.
