Question Steep Asphalt Driveway to Seal

I have noticed that the better and best quality sealers all say not to use on slopes greater than 20 degrees. I live on a little knoll and the drive exceeds that in places by 10 degrees. What is the reasoning behind this limitation and what can I seal with if I don't--and I don't--want to seal every year? Thanks!

You may not as bad off as you think if you were to actually calculate the slope. Most people over-estimate the slope by 50 to 100%. 30% almost requires crawling instead of walking.

Use the best sealer you can and try to intall it when the temperature is reasonable (not 90 and bright sun) to minimze any flow or running.
