I've had a brand new asphalt put in earlier this year beginning of May (temperature hovering ~50s, +/-5 degrees change between day and night). The same contractor is recommending to seal coat it before winter, in the fall.
I would like unbiased answer - should I do it? My main concern is that it is going to get very cold quickly around October/November, and snowy shortly after, and it sounds like 'ideal' temperature is above 50 degrees. Also, another worry is that it is too soon and asphalt did not have enough curing time.
If yes, can you recommend a seal coat for new driveway?
