Hi, I recently had my driveway removed and repaved with a new asphalt one, but I get temporary puddles that form when it rains. These puddles (somewhat significant in size, I think) do not last very long -- they typically go away after a couple of hours once the rain stops, but I am concerned that there should not be standing water on a new driveway at all. The contractor is telling me this is not a problem as long as there isn't standing water after 24 hours of a rainfall. Is what he says true? Keep in mind that this is a flat driveway and not the typical upward sloping one, so it was difficult to get a good slope, according to the contractor. Thank you in advance for your help.
