How Much Does Asphalt Crack Filling Cost?

Asphalt crack filling costs $100 to $300 per 100 linear feet to cover typical cracks. Keep in mind that quarter-inch to half-inch shallow cracks are easily repairable.

Wide or connected cracks, aka “alligator cracks” can mean sub-base damage. When this is the case, you might need reconstruction or replacement. These are more extensive procedures.
