Am I supposed to seal my driveway?

If you have an asphalt driveway then keep reading.
 
It's a good idea to seal your driveway every two years as it helps protect the surface and prevent it from breaking down. If you don't seal asphalt water can get in the pavement and freeze and start to create cracks and potholes.  It will also help protect the driveway from extreme heat.
 
My personal preference is not to use a tar based product on the driveway to seal because it becomes slick when wet and it is a fire hazard.  I recommend using an acrylic product on the driveway for safety concerns as well as the environmental benefits.
