ProMatcher
Answer: Yes
Explanation: A general guide is when the surface turns a flat black color, rain will not affect it. We do our best to schedule your sealcoating in good weather, but unfortunately there are times when forecasts are wrong or showers "pop-up" unexpectedly. Should this occur and the rain causes the sealer to splatter or runoff on places it shouldn't, be sure to hose off the areas while the sealer is still wet. It will wash off easily and leave little or no residue. If the areas are not washed off and they dry, it is almost impossible to remove the sealer.
