Tips & Reminders
Congratulations on your new driveway or parking lot.
We appreciate your business and look forward to a lasting business relationship.
Here are some tips and reminders for the care of your new asphalt:
- The typical wait time to drive on your driveway is 72 hours for new asphalt and 24 hours for sealcoating.
- CAUTION: surfaces may be slippery when wet.
- It is important to seal your new asphalt within the first year after install. Typical curing time to be able to apply sealer is 45 days. REMEMBER TO CALL TO SCHEDULE YOUR COATING.
- Maintenance on your asphalt is important. Sealing your asphalt every other year is standard and will extend the life of your asphalt against our Hot & Cold • Weather. CALL US TO SCHEDULE.
- Avoid driving of the edges of your driveway to prevent cracking as these are the most vulnerable spots.
- Avoid spilling any chemicals on your asphalt as they may cause stains or soften the surface. Oil leaks are dangerous to asphalt and will cause deterioration.
- Remember your asphalt has a typical curing time of 30 days. Avoid stationary steering on your driveway as it may cause tire marks. This may also occur during summer months.
- Asphalt is an oil base product, which means water may accumulate or bead up in areas that aren't low. Even though your asphalt was machine laid there may be slight variations in drainage. Industry standards are up to 90% water drainage
If there is sealer on grass usually it takes two to three grass cuts for grass to return to normal. When we treat your driveway, we seal all the way to the grass line to make sure your edge is sealed. 90% of cracking starts on the driveway's edge and if it's not coated, then it will not be protected.
We are not responsible for the following.
Slippery or slick spots
Attention to homeowners with driveways that are on a decline or incline , Driveways may be slippery when rain/Snow fall. This is a oil based product that we apply and we are not responsible for any accidents that may occur on your driveway.
