Stripes from roller in sealed driveway

Q. Sealed driveway and you can see stripes from the roller. How do you correct this?

A. If you used a solvent based sealer, you can spray on some xylene. This will soften the sealer and lay it down flat. If the stripes are thick, try back rolling them right after you spray with the xylene.

If you used a water based sealer you will have to strip the sealer with a chemical based stripper or a citrus based stripper and re-apply the sealer using a pump up sprayer.
