Removing Ice From Your Blacktop in the Wintertime
Chopping ice that has built up on your driveway in the winter can be very harmful. Should you gouge your blacktop in the process, you may have created an opening for water to penetrate and cause future failure to that part of your asphalt. Should you have an ice build up, apply the deicing agent of your choice, allow it to work for a period of time and then attempt to scrape the ice off. At worst this method will only scratch your coat of sealer. This is what the sealer intended for, to take the abuse and protect your driveway.
