Driveway Sealing Steps

  1. Driveway edge

    All grass areas will be power edged to ensure a manicured finish upon application of sealer and will allow the pavement sealer to penetrate and seal the edges which are subject to erosion from water. If you have mulch beds, the mulch will be pushed back to expose the driveway edges. If you have Belgium block or brick pavers on the edge of your driveway, rest assured that our workmanship is the cleanest in the industry. We will take every step necessary to ensure that no sealer reaches any non-target surface. The crews all have water spray bottles on hand to immediately clean any spills.

  2. Driveway Cleaning

    High powered push blowers are used to remove all dirt, debris, mulch, silt and dust from your driveway. Good preparation is key to ensure the pavement sealer bonds properly.

  3. Spot Cleaning,

    We will apply latex based oil spot primer to all oil, gas and grease spots on the driveway to provide a good cohesive bond with the pavement sealer and reduce bleed through.

  4. Joint Sealing

    We will utilize Driveway Guardian Joint Seal to seal the joint between the asphalt and concrete at the garage apron if the joint has opened to a width of ¼” or more.

  5. Broom Coating  

    All pavement sealers are applied with our specially manufactured nylon seal coating brooms which are manufactured exclusively for our company. These specialized brooms apply the most uniform coverage of material available ensuring a long-lasting job.

  6. Protection after sealing

    Upon completion we will barricade your driveway with Orange Banner Tape to prevent people from walking / driving on the driveway for the 24 hr cure time. 48 hrs for parking your car is preferred to prevent power steering marks.
