Does my driveway need a prime coat?

A prime coat is a layer of low viscosity asphalt that sits between the base material and the main layers of asphalt. Its purpose is to toughen the base material and ensure strong adhesion between the asphalt base and the main layers. At one time, a prime coat was considered essential. Today, however, advances in technology and materials engineering have rendered the prime coat largely unnecessary for most applications. Your asphalt expert will let you know if a prime coat is needed for your driveway and, if so, why.
