Common Mistakes Made When Sealing Asphalt

Sealing asphalt can be an intricate process and it’s easy to make mistakes. Here are some of the most common mistakes when sealing asphalt:

  • Not cleaning asphalt: Before sealer is applied, it must be clean and dry. If there’s dirt and debris on the driveway, it can affect the adhesion between the driveway and the sealer. 
  • Applying too much sealer: Applying too much sealer can lead to premature cracking which will decrease your driveway’s life. 
  • Using the wrong tools: Many people try to use squeegees to smooth out bubbles in the asphalt which is not good. Sealcoating asphalt requires tools with higher quality than squeegees.
