Sealing your driveway can make sure your driveway lasts longer and may save you money on replacing it. You should not seal your driveway too often. Otherwise, you risk damaging the driveway. In general, you should seal your driveway every one to three years. The most important rule to remember when sealing a driveway is that you should never seal it when it is brand new.

The frequency is determined by several variables. Is there a lot of traffic in your driveway? Do you live in a snowy region? Is your driveway exposed to severe weather? If it is often exposed to chemicals, snow or oil, consider doing it every two years. Summer is the best time to seal driveways. The sealant hardens well when exposed to heat.
