3 Key Tips for Your Perfect Driveway

Extreme How To subscribers have the coolest tools and the skills to use them. You are the people who fearlessly tackle projects, big and small. You are the folks that friends and neighbors call for advice and more often than not, help. So what can we tell you that you don’t already know?

  1. Read the product label and/or TDS

You pride yourself on being able to get things done on your own, but why wing it when you’ve got great info at your fingertips. Reading the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) or label takes about five whole minutes and those are five minutes well spent. These resources provide all kinds of great details that are specific to the particular product and brand like what temperatures and weather conditions are required for application, how many coats do we need and should the coats be thick or thin? Your reputation is on the line. You, the Extreme How To’er set the stage for DIY perfection. Any questions? If so, check out for tips and videos or reach out to use via the Contact Us page for additional product specific info.

  1. Preparation

Preparation starts with a good cleaning. You have a pressure washer and you aren’t afraid to use it! And remember, grease and grime need a little help to go away so treat it accordingly. Does anything need to be patched? Black Jack’s line of patching products covers patches up to 3” wide. Product specific preparation info is included on the TDS and label so we know exactly what’s up.

  1. Application

You’ve read the instructions and prepped your asphalt surface. Mother Nature is cooperating, you’re suited up with proper protective gear and clothes that you can get a little dirty. This is the fun part. Grab the squeegee or driveway brush. You’ll get that first thin coat down and marvel at how great it looks and how easy it was to apply. After it dries, you’ll apply the second coat (perpendicular to the first) and pat yourself on the back. Now your driveway looks great and has an extra layer of protection. You’ve upped the curb appeal and your neighbors are impressed. Congratulations on a job well done!
