Maintaining your new asphalt
A new asphalt driveway takes up to 12 months to cure completely. By following these maintenance tips this will help with the longevity of your new asphalt driveway.
1 Do not park on your driveway for 5-7 days after your driveway has been paved.
2 Do not turn your wheels on the new pavement unless the car is moving.
3 Avoid sharp objects (ladders, kickstands, lawn chairs, trailer legs, etc...) directly on the asphalt.
4 You may walk on the pavement immediately (with a flat shoe).
5 Stagger your parking for the first 4-6 weeks
6 Avoid spilling petroleum based products on your driveway.
7 Avoid heavy trucks on your asphalt for the first 12 months (concrete trucks, roofing bins, etc...).
8 Do not park in the same spot for a long duration in excessive heat.
