Asphalt Seal Coating
Asphalt is a tough, attractive paving material.
The color, the sleek look, the safety features, the feeling of a smooth drive: all these factors contribute to making asphalt a smart paving choice, whether for home or business.
Asphalt Requires Maintenance
But asphalt does require maintenance. Unless it’s looked after it’ll gradually deteriorate, developing micro cracks and surface damage which progressively worsens over time. Left unchecked, those small issues will eventually become big problems like potholes and damage to the sub surface of the asphalt.
Sealcoating is an important part of maintaining an asphalt paved surface.
What Is Asphalt Sealcoating?
Asphalt is made up of cement, sand, or rock that is bound together with some sort of binding agent, commonly petroleum.
Sealcoating protects and reinforces these ingredients by adding a layer of asphalt mix over the top. It’s only an option though when the existing asphalt is in good enough condition to permit a smooth, workable surface.
A good sealcoat prevents damage to your asphalt from UV rays and water, freshens its appearance and smoothes over any existing surface irregularities.
In the long run, sealcoating is likely to save you significant outlay in more serious repairs caused by neglect and heavy wear and tear.
How it Works
The great thing about asphalt sealcoating is that it is generally a straightforward process. Provided your asphalt surface isn’t too damaged (for example with potholes or large cracks) our team will simply clean and prepare the surface before applying the sealcoat.
While the time required to complete the process will vary depending on square footage, we’re generally done in an afternoon.
After roughly an hour you can carefully walk on it. Within 48 hours your freshly sealcoated surface will be ready for vehicle traffic.
Asphalt sealcoating is a cost-effective, quick and easy way to get years of extra life out of your asphalt paved areas. It also greatly rejuvenates its appearance, making it a perfect home upgrade if you’re looking for an easy way to get a lot of curb appeal.
