Driveway Sealing

Hi guys.

Our 4-home culdesac has a running discussion on how often to re-seal our
asphalt access road. I'm hoping you can help us?

We live in Northern California, in a climate which does not experience a
hard freeze, but does have a non-snowy "winter" where temps drop to the 40's
at night, and occasionally below freezing, but for very short times
(measured in days).

Summers are VERY sunny, with July, August, and part of September in the
upper 90's, with occasional 100's.

Our Driveway is asphalt, on a relatively steep hill. I don't know the
slope, but cars need 2nd gear to get up the hill.

The driveway was originally layed in 1993, I think. It is still in VERY
good condition, but we're beginning to worry about micro-cracks, and don't
want a maintenance problem.

Is it time? How often should we reseal the driveway?

Also, we're a bit confused by the estimates we've gotten. We have one at
$1700, and one at $7000. That seems like a bit of an extreme difference.
We also have another at $3000.

Any ideas? Can you help with some guidance?
