Q: How often does a driveway need to be sealed?

A: According to our Pros, it can depend on the amount of direct sun exposure that your driveway receives.

Q: What if it rains while the sealer is still drying?

A: A quick shower may not make much of a difference, but a downpour may prevent the sealer from curing properly.

Q: Will the sealer damage my lawn?

A: If you're worried about the health of your grass, don't be afraid to ask your contractor to be extra careful.

Q: When is the best time of year to reseal my driveway?

A: Did you know that driveway sealer is sensitive to extreme temperatures? You may want to avoid days when extreme heat (or extreme cold) may impact the effectiveness of the sealer.

Q: What is the best method to apply the sealer?

A: While some companies spray on the sealer, others prefer to use a roller or squeegee to apply the driveway sealer.

Q: How long does the sealer need to dry?

A: You can typically walk on the driveway after 24 hours, but you may want to wait an extra before parking your car on the newly sealed surface.

Q: Do oil stains need to be removed before resealing an asphalt driveway?

A: In some cases, oil stains may prevent the sealer from adhering to the driveway properly.
