1. Wait a minimum of one full day before driving on your new pavement. If the weather is hot, wait even longer to give the oils in the asphalt and mixture time to fully cure.
2. Maintenance and upkeep is important. Keep the surface clean of car oil leaks and other harsh chemicals. Have cracks and imperfections repaired
as soon as they are seen.
3. There's no need to sealcoat your pavement within the first year. Additives and other sealcoating chemicals can have adverse affects on the asphalt and cause cracking or other conditions. Sealcoating is recommended every 2 to 3 years, while cracks should be filled each year.
