What is a driveway sealer?
A driveway sealer is a protective coating that is applied to asphalt driveways to protect them from weathering and damage. Sealers form a waterproof barrier that helps to prevent water from penetrating the surface of the driveway, which can cause cracking and other damage. They also help to protect against the effects of oxidation, which can cause the surface of the driveway to become brittle and fade over time. Sealants also add a protective layer to the surface of the asphalt, which can help prevent staining and damage from oil and other chemical spills.
How often should I apply a sealant?
Sealers are typically applied every 1-3 years, depending on the quality of the product and exposure to weathering elements. If sand is used in the mix of your driveway, sealers will need to be applied more frequently.
What causes damage to an uncoated driveway?
An uncoated driveway is vulnerable to wear-and-tear damage from rain, snow, sleet and ice. Without a protective coating of sealer on the surface of your driveway, these elements can penetrate through cracks or other damage in the asphalt and cause more problems down the road. Unprotected driveways are also susceptible to oil and chemical spills. All of these factors can contribute to a cracked, peeling or otherwise damaged driveway.
How is a driveway sealant applied?
A driveway sealer is typically sprayed on the surface of the asphalt using specialized equipment – it’s important that you hire a professional sealer if you don’t have this equipment yourself. Although the process of applying the sealant is simple, it’s important to take proper safety precautions if you’re adding it yourself. Before sealing your driveway, make sure that all plants have been moved away from the surface of the drive, and sweep up any debris nearby to avoid clogging the sprayer.
Sealers should be applied in two thin layers. It’s important that you allow the first layer to dry before applying a second coat for best results.
How long does it take for a driveway sealer to dry?
Generally, your driveway will be ready to drive in about an hour after application – but make sure to check with your manufacturer’s guidelines before driving on the surface of your driveway.
I already sealed my driveway. Can I still apply a second coat?
Yes! It’s entirely possible to add an additional coat of sealant to your driveway before the first layer has fully dried. The best time for this is in the beginning or end of summer when you’re less likely to get wet weather. If you decide to add another coat, make sure to allow the first layer of sealant to dry for at least a week before reapplying.
Tips for sealing your driveway:
For best results, it’s important that you follow all safety precautions listed on your product’s packaging. Wear protective gloves and eyewear when applying any new products – especially those that contain chemicals or other potentially hazardous ingredients.
