Essential Reasons to use Sealcoat

Asphalt leaves your pavement with a striking black color that greatly contributes to the overall beauty and value of your property. However, this beautiful dark color is short-lived. Weather and heavy use begin to take their toll, and eventually render it a concrete-gray.

A viable way to restore the pavement and prevent asphalt decay is sealcoating, which leaves your pavement looking as clean as the day the asphalt was set. It’s recommended that you get a sealcoating application, or reapplication, every 3-5 years to protect your investment and your asphalt.

The Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating:

  • Reduced long term repair costs
  • Accelerated melting of snow or ice on the pavement surface
  • Enhances the appearance of your property
  • Prolonged pavement life
  • Sealcoating Protects Your Pavement Against:
    • Oxidation
    • Oil
    • Chemical spills
    • Water penetration
    • Rain

Sealcoating your asphalt driveway or parking lot prevents UV rays from penetrating into the asphalt foundation, which wears the asphalt away. Potholes and cracks are prevented when asphalt sealcoating is applied. This is because the sealcoating prevents excess water and oil that usually seep into the pavement, weakening the layers of the pavement.

Because of the pre-treatment requirements, sealcoating asphalt can be a difficult job. Whether it’s a private or commercial parking lot, steps such as power-washing and general cleaning must be taken before the actual application of the coating.
