Before you apply a sealer, you must inspect the driveway and make the necessary repairs. Here are a few things to do before a Driveway sealing.

1. Look for trouble spots: Carefully inspect every square foot of your driveway and make note of any cracks, oily stains or areas that are crumbling. Pay particular attention to the very end and edges of the driveway, which are especially susceptible to damage.

2. Scrub away stains: If you find oil or grease stains, try removing them with hot, soapy water and a stiff-bristle scrub brush.

3. Fill in cracks: Most driveways will have at least a few cracks, which must be repaired before you apply a sealer. It‚s important to repair all cracks, even the smallest ones. If you don‚t, they‚ll only grow wider and longer over time.

5. Prep the driveway for sealing: The last step before applying a sealer is to thoroughly clean the driveway. Start with a push broom and sweep away the heaviest debris. Then use a garden hose, or better yet, a pressure washer to rinse the surface clean of all loose dirt, sand, and grit. Start at the highest end of the driveway and work down and out toward the edges.
