5 Do’s And Don’ts After An Asphalt Paving Project

If you just had your parking lot or driveway paved, you may be wondering what the next steps are post-paving and how to maintain the newly paved surface.

Follow these 5 steps to ensure the longevity of your quality asphalt pavement.

1) Wait at least 24 hours before driving on the new surface. Wait longer during hot weather. The asphalt mixes contain a high quantity of oil to help ensure a longer-lasting formula. The cure time, or the time it takes for a material to harden, is slightly longer for this product.

2) During the first few months, make sure the vehicle’s wheels are rolling before turning the steering wheel. After driving at highway speeds, always park the car in a straight line after coming to a slow stop. Small things like this will help extend the life of your asphalt pavement for years to come.
