How can I extend the life of my asphalt driveway?

Asphalt driveways typically last for about 20 years, but their exact lifespan depends largely on how well they are cared for. To maximize your driveway’s lifespan, inspect it and seal any cracks at least once per year. Cracks that are not filled quickly allow water to seep in, eroding the lower layers. This can lead to worsening cracks, potholes, and eventually even asphalt failure.

Depending on conditions, you may also need to have more extensive patching done now and then. Also consider having your driveway seal coated every few years. Sealant helps to lock out both water and chemicals that can erode your driveway.
