What type of sealer is the contractor offering to seal your driveway with. Coal Tar or Asphalt emulsion or a blend of both. I would not recommend anything but 100% coal tar emulsion because of its chemical makeup. How much sand is in the mixture, how much water, does he use additives or not.Is he going to spray or brush apply the sealer on your pavement. If he is going to spray you can be sure that you are going to get a thin coat compared to a squeegee application. Also with a spray application, be ready for the sealer to land halfway up your retaining wall. Does he live in the area? If there is a problem you want to be sure that you can track him down. I would also ask for references and insurance. You also want the ability to pay for the application a day or two after the work is completed. This way you can review workmanship before final payment.
