Asphalt FAQs

Asphalt Frequently Asked Questions

1
What are the benefits of an asphalt driveway compared to a concrete driveway?
  • Asphalt fights the effects of rock salt much better than concrete
  • Asphalt is more durable and lasts longer
  • The cost of asphalt is less than concrete (sometimes half the price!)
  • Easier to maintain – concrete will eventually crack and when it does there is no way to repair your concrete driveway without replacing it.
2
After paving, how long before I can park my car on my driveway?
We recommend staying off the driveway for a full three days. Note: hotter temperatures may require your vehicles to remain off your driveway for longer than three days.
3
What are contributors to asphalt deterioration?
Traffic, wear and tear, weather, sunlight / UV rays, water, oils, and freezing temperatures.
4
When do you do estimates?
Saturdays primarily and periodically throughout the work week.

Sealcoating FAQs

Sealcoating Frequently Asked Questions

1
What is the best time of the year to sealcoat?
May to September is the best time of year to sealcoat.
2
Can sealcoating repair large cracks or little spider cracks in the pavement?
No. Sealcoating cannot repair large cracks or little spider cracks in the pavement.
3
How long until I can walk on my newly sealed driveway?
We recommend refraining from walking on your newly sealed driveway for 24 -48 hours to allow time for the fresh coat to fully dry.
4
How often should my driveway be sealcoated?
New driveways should be sealcoated 90 days after the initial installation. After the initial sealcoat, regular sealcoating is recommended to be treated every 2-3 years to maintain your new asphalt driveway and protect it from UV rays, automobile chemicals, rain, freezing temperatures, etc.

How long does it take to re-seal a driveway?
Approximately 1-2 hours depending on the size of your driveway.
