Seal or Reseal Asphalt Driveway Cost



The cost of sealing/resealing (or sealcoating) an asphalt driveway will increase or decrease based upon a number of factors. This article is intended to provide you a checklist of questions to ask yourself and your contractor.

This key will serve as your guide:

$0 = no additional cost
$ = standard cost
$$ = increased cost


Questions to Ask Yourself

Does the driveway need to be edged? Do weeds need to be removed?

$0 - The driveway is ready to be sealed.

$$ - When the driveway needs to be edged and weeds must be removed.

Is your home in a remote location?

$ - When sealers and equipment are located close to your home.

$$ - When the equipment must be transported a long-distance to reach your home.

Do oil stains and other dirt need to be removed from the driveway?

$0 - When there are no dirt or stains to be removed.

$$ - When excess dirt and oil stains need to be removed prior to sealing the driveway.

Are there deep cracks in the driveway that need to filled in?

$ - When there are no cracks or holes to fill in.

$$ - When there are deep cracks that need to be filled prior to sealing the driveway. (Many companies that seal driveways do not fill in cracks with asphalt. You may need to enlist a separate paving company to do this work prior to the seal.)

How many coats of sealer will be applied?

$ - When one coat is applied.

$$ - When two or more coats are applied.

Will the sealer be sprayed on or brushed on?

$ - When the sealer is sprayed on.

$$ - When the sealer is applied with a brush or squeegee.



Ask the Pro:

1. How long do you expect the process to take?

2. What type of sealer do you recommend: Oil or water based?

3. Will the sealer be sprayed on or brushed on?

4. Are you and your crew licensed and insured?

5. Does the quote include cleanup?

6. Are there any cracks that need to be filled in?

7. How often do I need to reseal my driveway?

8. How long does the sealer need to dry before I can park on it again?
