I've just installed a newly paved asphalt parking lot. Should I have it sealed right away?

No. New pavement must be allowed to cure before you can properly sealcoat the parking lot. Six months to one year is generally enough time to cure the asphalt to accept seal coat. The cost for Sealcoating should be put in the budget for the following year. If it goes without sealing, newly installed, unsealed asphalt can absorb oil, gas and other chemicals or be damaged by weather before it's treated. Waiting more than a year is not advised.
