Nothing and once the driveway ages a bit it’ll blend in with the other marks and discolorations. It’s asphalt, not Farrow & Ball paint. It’s not unsightly, it’s a road. (And it’s Likely just dirt mixed in a bit with the material or the sun state not mixed as well.)

I think you had too high expectations. The way it’s done is not likely to yield perfection. If you want beauty, get a stone drive installed. This is just slurry poured and smoothed.

You should call them back and tell them you want the whole thing replaced.

Just got mine repaved in April. Also have the streaks of brown. They have faded quiet a bit already since then. You have to wait 6-12 months before you seal new asphalt, but once you do, it will look brand new.

Thank you for sharing. We haven’t had rain yet so hoping some it will wash away eventually.

Here’s a photo of the brown streaks:

We reseal ours every few years. Keeps it tight and clean looking.

Could you use a pressure washer? It could clean it I think.

You reported this comment. You really are over dramatic. Well I don’t have thousands of dollars to fix my driveway that is terribly damaged but sits in the very bottom of my priority list. I do have bugger problems so I truly wish I had yours. You posted this here, man. I can have my opinion
