Asphalt Paving – soft pavement care

Asphalt Paving- Care and Maintenance

Particularly for the first year of its life, do not place sharp or pointed objects on the driveway as indentations will result. During the hot summer months, this holds especially true as the asphalt will absorb the heat and become soft again.Examples of things to avoid are kickstands, ladders, patio furniture, and other weighted metal objects  such as steel scows  …etc. When curing, or when softened by the sun, using a garden hose or sprinkler will help it to harden. Watering your driveway will absorb heat from the sun and help with the curing and hardening process.
