How do I take care of my new asphalt pavement ?
There are a few things you should know about freshly paved driveways and parking lots:
Asphalt needs 48-72 hours to cure depending on the temperature and humidity. It is important to keep people,cars and bikes off the new pavement during that time.
The asphalt will continue to cure for 6 to 12 months but you do not have to wait that long to use the new surface.
Protect you new asphalt pavement .You have made a good investment in your new asphalt driveway and it needs to be protected and maintained!
To extend the life of your asphalt pavement it is recommended that you have us sealcoat the surface approximately 6 months to a year after the asphalt paving is completed. Sealcoating will prevent oxidation and will resist UV rays, gas and oil spills that cause premature aging and pavement failure.
