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.
