Check current status of asphalt – Erosion, cracks, and crumbling are all issues that can arise throughout the year, asphalt especially in high traffic area. Add in elements like gas, oil from cars and the process of cracks can add up quicker. Repairing these cracks first should be top priority. You may need to scrub areas of the pavement with detergent and hose off before continuing.

Sealcoating – After all repairs and cleaning has completed it may be a goof idea to apply a sealcoating. Sealcoating’s job is to protect the asphalt below it from harsh weather conditions that would decrease the driveway or parking lot’s life. In reality, to properly Winterize, a sealcoating should be applied every 2-4 years depending on weather conditions.
