After the Monarch Paving team has left, the asphalt driveway may be walked on but please DO NOT DRIVE on your new driveway for a minimum of 2 days to as many as 4 days, depending on the temperatures. Please consult with your Monarch Paving representative.
Asphalt has a tendency to reheat itself for up to one year, especially in hot weather. This means that it can be soft for quite some time. Please take care of your driveway, apron or asphalt curbing.
Use water if necessary to cool it down.
Use care when placing objects in one area or concentrating excessive weight to a particular spot, a piece of wood or plywood placed underneath works well.
Do not turn your wheels sharply on the asphalt, or turn your wheels while the vehicle is stationary. This results in marks on the driveway. We cannot be held responsible for tire marks, weeds or root damages.
Do not use chains on your tires as this will mark your driveway.
Please call if there are any questions about your new driveway. We will be more than pleased to answer them.
