Frequently Asked Questions

We know there are a lot of questions about asphalt sealcoating and repair in your home or business. Collett Sealcoating wanted to make it easy for you to get those questions answered. Just click a question below to see the answer. If you do not find your question, please do not hesitate to ask.

The frequency of sealcoating applications depends largely on the amount of traffic the surface receives, the overall condition of the asphalt, and the weather (harsh winters, snow removal, ice melt salt applications, etc.) The rule of thumb though is generally every 2-3 years. If your driveway is new asphalt, we recommend getting it sealed two years in a row for the first time. New asphalt is much more absorbent than surfaces that have already been sealed.

We recommend not driving on newly coated or crack filled surfaces for at least 24 hours if the area receives full sun after application, and 48 hours if the area is shaded or the application is applied on a cloudy or overcast day. If the temperature is cooler we recommend adding an additional 24 hours. People and pets are generally okay with to walk on the surface within a few hours after application, but use your judgement if the area appears to be wet in some spots.

Sealer is designed to protect the asphalt surface and isn't intended to act as a crack fill agent. If your areas contain hairline or other cracks, crack fill sealant can be applied to fill those areas, then the entire area can be sealcoated.

Ground temperature (not air temperature) needs to be above 60 degrees. 60 degrees allows the sealer to sure properly.

Under asphalt surfaces in a bed of aggregate (gravel) which contains lime. When water gets under the surface, it can bring those lime deposits to the surface.

Sometimes when a surface is sprayed, we go slightly over the edge of the asphalt to make sure we cover the edges. Brushing can also push extra onto your grass. It will not kill your grass, and can be mowed right over.

Once you receive our invoice, you can log on to our website (you will need your customer ID and account number) or call in and pay by credit card (we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover), come in and pay at one of our 3 office locations or you may mail a check in. Whichever is most convenient for you.
