Frequently Asked Questions

Does PrimeCote have a friendly staff available during business hours to answer questions?

Yes.  PrimeCote has a full time office staff to help you with all of your asphalt needs.

How often should I sealcoat my asphalt?

Asphalt should be sealcoated every two to three years, depending on the amount of traffic wear. This is especially important in Michigan due to the extreme and changing weather conditions.

How long should I wait to seal my driveway after it has been paved?

You should allow at least 90 days for the asphalt to cure. Sealcoating should be done within the first year.

Will I need to be present while my asphalt work is being done?

No.  As long as driveway or parking lot is clear of all obstacles (vehicles, dumpsters, etc.) PrimeCote can complete your asphalt maintenance.  Your invoice will be conveniently mailed to you.

When will my newly sealed asphalt be ready for traffic?

The normal time required is 24 hours after completion of work.

How will I keep traffic off my newly sealed asphalt during cure time?

PrimeCote will flag or barricade your entrance upon completion of work.

Is there anything I need to do before maintenance is performed on my asphalt?

Yes.  Sprinklers should be turned off 24 hours prior to work and 24 hours after completion of work.  Obstacles (vehicles, dumpsters, etc.) must be removed prior to maintenance work is done.  If there is no concrete apron in front of garage doors, we ask that we have accessibility to raise doors during maintenance.
