Asphalt paving can be more durable than alternatives like gravel or concrete and you will have fewer erosion problems in the rain and snow. But if your asphalt paving is older, sealing it is a preventative measure to make it last longer. There are a few different factors that will affect the price of asphalt sealing.

Size of Paved Area

The length and width of your paved area will have the greatest affect on the cost of sealing it. There will be more cost in the sealant and in the labor to do the job.

Sealing Prep

Asphalt sealing cannot take place until any cracks or crevices in your driveway or other paved area have been filled or repaired. If the asphalt is severely cracked or damaged, this repair process will be more extensive and costly.

Cleaning the Driveway

Before sealing your driveway or other asphalt area, it must be thoroughly cleaned of any oil, dirt or debris. You can most likely clean the driveway yourself, but if it is terribly dirty, oily or filled with debris it might require a professional power washing to get it clean enough to take the sealant. This is a factor that could add to your costs

Warning for New Driveways

Do NOT seal a new asphalt driveway! An asphalt driveway should be a minimum of 6 months old prior to sealing. This is important as new driveways have too much oil on the surface which will result in the sealer not bonding properly.
