Curb appeal – something sellers hear endlessly about when they are putting their home on the market. Suddenly you may be scrambling to complete all kinds of home renovations in a short period of time. The best way to avoid this from happening to you is by keeping up to date on your home maintenance. One of those projects that often gets pushed aside or back a few years is resealing your asphalt driveway. Fortunately it’s a simple project that can easily be completed on your own. Asphalt driveways should be resealed every two years. Follow this step-by-step guide to get your driveway look its very best.

Before you get started, watch this video below for a brief outline of what you’re in for. Then, follow our guide to get your driveway sealed and ready to go in no time!

Step 1: Clean the Surface

Haul out the weed whacker and start by trimming down grass alongside the driveway. If there are any bushes, be sure to cut back branches. Inspect your driveway for gas or oil stains; scrub off with a mild detergent. Follow sweeping the entire surface of debris and scraping out any cracks with a knife or flathead screwdriver. At this point it may be wise to create a barricade at the entrance to your driveway to prevent anyone from passing over the surface.

Step 2: Repairs

Pick up a patch sealer from your local hardware store and fill any cracks or potholes. Once complete, sweep again, rinse and let sit for 24 hours. (more…)
