When Is a Good Time To Start Resurfacing Your Asphalt Driveway?

Resurfacing Driveway

February 23, 2023

The best time to start resurfacing your asphalt driveway is during the late spring or early fall, when the weather is mild and dry. In general, you want to avoid resurfacing your driveway during extreme temperatures or weather conditions that can impact the curing and quality of the asphalt.


Asphalt needs warm and dry weather to cure properly, so you should avoid resurfacing your driveway during the hot summer months when the temperatures can exceed 90°F (32°C) or during the winter months when the temperatures can drop below freezing. Resurfacing your driveway during these extreme temperatures can cause the asphalt to dry out too quickly or not cure properly, leading to cracks, bubbles or unevenness.


The late spring or early fall, on the other hand, usually provides a good balance of warm, dry weather, which is ideal for resurfacing your driveway. It’s also important to plan your resurfacing project in advance, as it may take a few days for the asphalt to dry and cure completely. Additionally, you should consider the weather forecast and choose a period with no expected rain, as water can also negatively impact the curing of the asphalt.


Overall, it’s best to consult with a professional asphalt contractor who can evaluate your specific situation and recommend the optimal timing for resurfacing your driveway based on your local weather conditions and other factors that may affect the quality of the final product.
