Laying down new asphalt or concrete can be a weather-sensitive project.
When is the right time to pave if you live in Florida?
Florida Climate and Paving
Our state is subtropical and tends to be very humid. We get lots of rain between May and October, so those months may not be ideal for planning a major project.
Asphalt can set up in a light drizzle, but pouring rain will bring the temperature too low.
Also, asphalt has to be laid at a temperature of 300 degrees. If the weather is too cool or there is too much rain, the hot asphalt will chill too quickly. This results in a poor final product.
Hot dry weather is ideal for paving a large surface. Think an air temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit or more. If you want to lay down a new asphalt driveway, it may be best to plan a project sometime during Florida’s dry season which usually goes from November to April.
