It's a good idea to avoid hot days, or seal your driveway in the morning before the sun is at its peak. Pull all weeds from driveway cracks before sealing.

Make sure that you have cleaned the driveway well before sealing. Use a quality sealer that is made for your specific driveway material. Apply the sealer in one application and allow to dry completely before using the driveway again.

First and foremost CLEAN it thoroughly with a VERY DILUTE solution of muriatic acid in water. Scrub and rinse well with high pressure. If concrete, there are several excellent and waterproof porch paints available, UGL Drylock is superior. If asphalt, an elastomeric product like AFM DynoSeal is worth the cost.

In order to seal your driveway, you must first pressure wash and clean the entire surface. Then you must seal the driveway with a commercially available sealer.
