What Is Sealcoating?
Over time, Asphalt degrades due to numerous factors, including wear & tear, overuse, harsh weather, and exposure to the sun. To avoid or prolong the need for expensive replacements after years of usage, many property owners rely on sealcoating! Sealcoating, or pavement sealing, is the process of applying a protective coating to asphalt-based pavements to provide a layer of protection from the elements, the freeze and thaw cycle, water, oils, and U.V. damage.
Sealcoating accomplishes this by slowing down the oxidation process, filling and sealing small cracks to increase the life span of the asphalt.
When Is Sealcoating Required?
In general, sealcoating of pavements and driveways is recommended every two years based on the aging of the asphalt. However, this number greatly depends on the conditions of the pavement and the amount of traffic it experiences on a regular basis. If you can see the colors of individual stones in the asphalt it’s certainly time to reapply a sealcoat to it. If you think it might be time to reseal but aren’t quite sure, contact us to set up a time to evaluate your pavement and provide you with an estimate on the work needeed!
