        My current residence has had the remnants of a blacktop drive which has totally disappeared after twenty years. It was pretty deteriorated when I bought the place and I just let it go and have since just laid crushed stone. My neighbors use black-top sealer quit regularly, but I've also notice that after several year they also just have it re-blacktopped.

        My recently purchase home has fairly long blacktop driveway that is in fair shape, so I plan on using a sealer for the first time this year. I would be interested in any experienced opinions.

        Thanks,

        CWS

          I have in the past but since moving to the country I have no pavement. When I did get it done I made sure the guy had acrylic based sealer in his tank. I found that the other stuff (tar maybe) would soften in the extreme heat summer days to the point that you could track some of it inside. This is one Job I absolutely refuse to do myself, by the time you factor in the fact that anything you use to apply it tends to end up in the garbage (may include shoes and other articles of clothing - seen other guys apply it) the cost of having it applied is cheaper not to mention that a spray job seems to look better too.

            thanks for your advice .
            i had some one stop by today that sealed the neighbors drive ,he said mine will cost $200 . that's not bad and worth my time and the mess they can do it. i just need to fined what type he has and what type i should use [ i rather spend more for something better that looks and last longer ]
