Why are you chip sealing brand new asphalt?

This is done to seal the surface of the roadway to protect the sub-grade from moisture. New asphalt is quite porous. Also, it gives you a wear surface that makes it last much longer and helps improve traction, particularly in the winter months when we are experiencing freezing rain and black ice that this area is known for.
