When Can I Seal a New Concrete Driveway?

If you have recently had a new concrete driveway installed, you need to seal it to protect it from moisture, which can freeze and crack the concrete. There is an ideal time to add sealer, usually about 7 to 10 days after the concrete has been poured. If you do it too early, the moisture will still be in the concrete, so you will be sealing it inside. You need to wait until the concrete has completely dried out before moving forward with the sealing process.
