Sealcoating your driveway is a beautiful way to ensure the integrity of the structure while shielding it from the outdoor elements. Many property owners already understand the need to seal their driveway. But, choosing when to sealcoat isn’t always an easy decision.

Owners often choose to seal their driveways in the fall, but is that really the best decision? There are many things to take into consideration before sealcoating. It’s best to stay informed and understand the process a little better before making a big decision.

The Necessities Of Sealcoating

Sealcoating is an involved process that often requires the work of a professional. The best sealcoating teams are experts in their field, leaving you with perfect results every time. 508 Sealcoating knows exactly how to approach every project for the best results possible. When you sealcoat your driveway, you’ll need to consider several key factors.

  • Driveway Size – The size of the driveway will impact how long it takes to complete the project.
  • Pavement Material – Different materials retain heat and moisture in a variety of ways.
  • Temperature – The atmospheric and ground temperature can affect the drying process.
  • Humidity – Humidity is another factor that can directly impact the drying process.
  • Weather – The weekly weather forecast can give you great insight into whether or not it’s best to proceed.
  • Environmental Presence – Plants and wildlife can sometimes interfere with the sealcoating process. Shedding trees and wild animals can cause a physical disturbance to the sealcoating finish.

All of these factors play a critical role in the execution, curing, and drying process for your sealcoating project. Before you make plans to sealcoat, it’s important to determine the best time to do it.

Why We Prefer The Summer

The summertime is easily one of our favorite seasons for a variety of reasons.

  • Weather Conditions – The summer months have some of the best weather for sealcoating. If you’re looking for clear days to get the job done, it’s happening in the summer.
