Preparing your driveway for the summer heat is essential to ensuring the least amount of damage and erosion over time. Keeping it regularly sealed not only helps protect it from the hot weather, but cold weather as well.
Find The Right Season
Finding the right season is crucial to a successful driveway sealing. It’s good to pick a dryer season and check the weather ahead of time. The few days following the sealing should be warm, dry and free of rain for best results.
Clean Your Driveway
To start, you will want to thoroughly sweep your driveway from all dirt and debris. After you have swept it clean, spray it down with a pressure washer to clean away any compacted dirt. If you don’t own one, you can rent one at your nearest hardware store.
Seal Your Driveway
There are many options available when it comes to pavement sealing. You can head to your local hardware store to purchase one of the available options or contact the professionals at Richmond Blacktop. Our team will ensure the job is done flawlessly, efficiently and at a competitive rate.
Perform Regular Maintenance
Preparing your driveway for the summer definitely has to include regular maintenance in the sealcoating process. After the sealcoat has dried, you will need to keep in mind that regular maintenance is what will help it retain its protection and efficacy. This includes regular sweeping, pressure washing, and attending to any cracks or potholes. Patching them up will ensure they don’t get bigger during the winter, or fill up with weeds during the summer.
