questions for kingdom? we've got answers!
how long do you typically have to wait to walk
or drive on a freshly sealed driveway?
We suggest waiting 24 hours before walking or driving on your newly sealed driveway. This gives the sealant time to set and harden. Depending on the air temperature, we often encourage giving it 48 to 72 hours to be safe.
Is it important to fill in cracks?
Filling in cracks is perhaps the MOST important precaution you can take to prolong the life of your driveway. When cracks are filled in, you’re preventing water from penetrating the asphalt and freezing causing more damage.
How often should I sealcoat my driveway? How long will it last?
Generally, a residential driveway sealcoat will last 2 years. There are some factors that will affect the life of your sealcoat like the amount of use your driveway gets (if you have several drivers in your household verses just one). The amount of snow and how it’s removed is also a factor. If you have a snowplow removing snow, that will cause more wear and tear than if it’s hand shoveled, for example.
What is the best season/weather conditions to seal my driveway?
The best time to sealcoat your driveway in New England is between the months of April thru November. Factors that we consider when sealcoating include amount of sun exposure, humidity, surface texture, age of asphalt, and temperature. Kingdom will pay attention to all of these factors when we schedule your sealcoating job.
