Can I paint an asphalt driveway?

mizcupcakeJuly 28, 2010

We recently purchased a mobile home with attached garage and it must have been a carport before the garage was built as the floor of the garage is asphalt and makes the space very dark....and we are thinking of applying a Martex coating on it to brighten it up.

This product is a mixture of paint and chips that is trowelled on the surface and then sealed.

We already have enough of this product leftover from our previous home and were really pleased with the result there.

Does anyone have any experience with anything like this?

DH worries that there is too much oil content in the asphalt for the product to adhere to it.

Any input would be appreciated!

Many thanks!

On the can of your product, there should be a customer service line #. Call it and ask for the technical assistance person, or a chemist, they will be the ones who can say for sure whether it is a viable plan.
