Driveway Care

New driveway construction needs time to cure after installation. Allow a minimum of 5 days before driving on your new asphalt driveway and a minimum of 2 weeks before parking on your new driveway.

Be advised that newly laid asphalt surfaces are prone to tire scuffing and indentations.

  • Do not allow sharp objects to be placed on your new driveway. This includes kick stands, chairs, tables, etc. Sharp objects may cause indentations in your new driveway.
  • Avoid turning your vehicle wheels too sharp, as this may cause tire scuffing.
  • Avoid spilling gasoline on your new asphalt driveway, which can cause the asphalt surface to soften and deteriorate.
  • Remember to keep heavy equipment off of a new asphalt driveway to prevent damage.
  • The edge of your new driveway should be backfilled and sodded after the installation of a new driveway to prevent undermining. It is also important to avoid parking on the edge of the driveway to prevent the edge from cracking.
  • We do not recommend seal coating your driveway in the first year. Allow at least 90 days of curing before applying seal coat.
  • We do not warranty expansion joints, light cracking or settlement due to frost, ground conditions, areas backfilled or other unknown reasons. Expansion joints can be filled with crack filler and sunken areas can be patched.
