Sealcoating a pavement area approximately 60 days after the initial asphalt application will protect it from weather and car fluid damage in the years ahead, lengthening the overall life of your paving. Driveway sealer is composed of a coal-tar emulsion, sometimes fortified with rubber or silica sand for increased durability. A paving contractor will apply sealer either by brush or by spraying it over the area; the method may depend upon the size of the area to be sealed, or upon the individual contractor’s preference.
If you are doing it yourself then you should make sure you know where the best place to get the materials would be, and step by step on how to do what you are trying to do. This can be done simply with one or two people; it will save you money since you are not paying for labor and just for materials for the paving. If you were to hire someone to do this work for you then you would end up paying more money in the end just for labor.
