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.
Make sure the line is tight as you don’t want any sag in your line, this will give a false reading with your levels which could result in your finished driveway holding water.If your driveway is falling towards the house, then simply reverse the fall and levels from the pavement towards an existing rain water gully. If this isn’t possible, you will have to install drainage channels along the front of the property. Water should then be directed into a soak-a-way within your garden area.
If you are hiring someone to do the pavement for you, then you want to find out how many pavements they have done before, and if they are licensed or trained to do this type of work. This is because you do not want them to mess anything up, or end up not being who they said they were when you hired them. This is being cautious with what you do before you do it, and getting all the information you need when you need to know more about the workers.
The material is literally mixed up and with a trowel spread onto a tarmac surface and left to set. Why not just has a pea shingle driveway? Well many driveway experts have found that after a short period of time the shingle starts to be carried down the road in the tracks of car tyres that have rolled onto the drive, the shingle ends up being carried down the road and periodically the pea shingle has to be replaced.
