Sealing your asphalt driveway or parking area every 1-2 years thereafter is an important part of maintaining   elasticity in all bituminous products. 

It is also the best time to take care of any cracks or holes that need to be filled and prevent water from getting into your Gravel Base / Foundation.

Elements such as the sun and rain will wear and dry asphalt. Asphalt will dry and become brittle with age. Even if  asphalt is not exposed to any outdoor elements it would still lighten and dry with time!

If water goes all the way through the asphalt, it will begin washing away the gravel base foundation weakening structural support.

Sealing your driveway is a great tribute to the longevity of asphalt. Driveway maintenance and preventative care will go a long way it protecting your investment!
