Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to stay off my driveway after you finish?

  • For sealcoat you have to stay off the driveway for 24 hours. For paving you need to stay off the new asphalt for 3-5 days.

 

What do I do if I get oil or gas on my driveway?

  • Wash the area with liquid laundry detergent and a stiff brush rinse with water.

 

What do I do if I get a crack in my driveway?

  • All asphalt cracks.  It is important to keep any large ¼” or larger cracks filled.  Small cracks will be filled with just sealcoat.

 

What is the difference between hot crack fill and cold crack fill?

  • Hot crack fill is applied at 350 degrees and has a higher rubber content, it is used for larger cracks. Cold crack fill is a caulking material and is fine to use on smaller cracks.

 

Where do you perform work?

Can I use salt on my driveway during the winter?

  • Yes, but we do recommend to use salt sparingly.

 

My new driveway seems to soften when it gets hot, what can I do?

  • Asphalt softens when there is a lot of heat absorbed into driveway. If we get a few very hot days in a row, we suggest watering the driveway to cool it off when you water the grass or flowers.

 

How long have you been in business?

  • We have been in the asphalt business since 1984.
