I do mine every 150 years. Anything sooner is a waste of money and too much
hard work. Only thing I do is fill any cracks.

Never. �Parent's driveway has never been coated, and it was installed 27
years ago. They live near Buffalo NY.
california has little freeze thaw, but likely sun damage.

UV can be tough on everything.

to me its cheap insurance

My driveway is about five years old and getting "dry," starting to crack,
etc. It is over 4,000 sq.ft, though, has "curbs," so the estimates I have
are over a thousand dollars to patch and slurry seal. I was just hoping that
it is more like a once every five years rather than every two years.

We live on a private road where the neighborhood organization pays to slurry
coat our road, the city slurry coats the streets here, so maybe as hallerb
noted, we get a lot of UV here in SoCal and it could be cooking the life out
of the asphalt.

best,

OD

call the company that does the neighborhood road, that contractor
being already on site is likely the lowest cost to do your
driveway.....

because of time, cost, and weather i skipped a coating and the
surface detoriated fast, in 4 years.

i may coat it twice this year, frankly the newer water based coatings
arent as good as the old coal tar based ones.... IMHO

If slurry coat is a regional term for sealing, then it is purely cosmetic
and you should do it when you have no better use for money. (UV is hard on
pavement?! Amazing.)
