When Should I Seal My Asphalt Driveway?
How Soon Should A Driveway Be Sealed After Installation?
This is a very important question and one of the most commonly asked questions about asphalt driveway sealcoating and there are a lot of different answers out there depending on who you ask!
Sealing an asphalt driveway to soon after installation can be detrimental to the asphalt. Once it’s installed, asphalt begins the curing process immediately, starting from the outside in. Sealing too soon can actually damage the surface and cause it to become soft, deteriorating when it’s driven on.
Most experts agree that asphalt should not be sealed for a minimum of 6 months after installation. If you do it sooner than 6 months, you’re taking a big risk!
