Hello,

My blacktop driveway was installed last fall. They told me to start sealing it after one year. I have never sealed a driveway before (stones never required much except more stones!), so I'm wondering exactly what I need to do. Does the weather need to be hot when I do it? Do I have to heat the sealer up? I was thinking of doing it in September, which is still pretty warm here in the Buffalo, NY area. Do I need to clean it? It has gotten dusty with construction going on and when it's dry, you can dust on the driveway. I've tried cleaning it with a hose, but once it dries, the dust is back. Do I need some sort of cleaner first?

Also, I have a few little divots - will the sealer fill those in OK, or should I use some sort of "filler" material? Thanks for the help.
