How soon should you sealcoat after paving?

Answer: Asphalt sealcoating should typically be applied within the first year after paving, and no later than two years after paving. It is important to allow adequate time for the asphalt to properly cure and settle before applying a sealcoat, as applying a sealcoat too soon can cause adhesion issues and negatively affect the performance of the sealcoat.
Here are some additional references you may find useful:
Asphalt Institute: The Asphalt Institute, a leading industry organization, recommends applying a sealcoat within the first year after paving and no later than two years after paving. They also recommend allowing 90 to 120 days for the asphalt to properly cure before applying a sealcoat.
International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA): According to the ISSA, it is best to wait at least 90 days after paving before applying a sealcoat. This allows the asphalt to properly cure and settle, which will result in a better bond between the asphalt and the sealcoat.
