Temps for Driveway Sealer?


I need to desperately put sealer down on my driveway. I say this because it's becoming pitted and generally going to fall apart. I'm concerned about going another winter without it.

I called a paving contractor who wanted $3500 to cap it with 2" of asphalt. Out of my budget and I'm not convinced it needs a capping.

I didn't seal it over the summer because of low funds, but I have the money now.

Question is: The temps this weekend will be High 67 during day, low 48 at night. Will that be too cold for me to do the job with the standard stuff from Lowes/Home Depot?

Thanks in advance!

Temps for Driveway Sealer?


Not going to be fun trying to apply it at that low a temp. Really need to read the can and see what it says.
A sealer is not going to seal cracks or repair any broke places. There's other products that would need to be used before any sealer goes down to do that.

I understand about the repairs, but the my question is more about the curing and temps needed for that process. the manufacturer says to allow for a 24 hours period of not less than 60 degrees. I was hoping to hear from people who have had experience and tried this by "slightly bending" the manufacturer's directions.
