I moved to a new house and the builder paved our Asphalt driveway a week
ago, snow is coming soon yo... do I need to seal it with the sealer bought
from home depot? or is that not necessary because it's new?
I know that for Interlocking stone, you can't seal it right away and have to
wait for 3 months cos of the efflorescence white thing... Same thing with
No sealer needed. Most of the sealers and such for asphalt drives
amount to nothing more than paint to make it look black, for a while. Those
are a waste of money. Some of the best ones, will help extend the life of
the drive under some conditions, but they are going to be expensive and
generally go on thick.
For now, your drive should not need anything for years to come. Maybe
in five or six years you should consider it.
Concrete is a little different. In the snow belts, where salt is used,
it should be sealed after it has cured well. I have never heard of sealing

Seven yars and counting for me with no sealer. ventually the sealer
comes off too...and sometimes it peels where it looks much worse than
if you never sealed it. If you decide to seal...I believe the driveway
has to cure for a few months first. Good luck.
