One of the essential components of asphalt pavement is the asphalt binder (or asphalt cement). This is what holds the rocks and gravels in the asphalt together and maintaining this binder is crucial to prolong the life of your asphalt surfaces. One of the most effective ways of achieving this is by applying a seal coat on your asphalt surface. This is a protective coating that is made from coal tar and other additives. A seal coat applied over the asphalt surface protects it from getting damaged by water, chemicals, UV rays, and oil. Asphalt Sealcoating also restores the deep black color of your asphalt pavement.
Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating
There are several reasons for Sealcoating an asphalt surface. It is one of the most effective ways to increase the lifespan of your asphalt. Asphalt is naturally porous which means water from rainfall and snow can easily seep through the asphalt surface. The water in the asphalt and temperature changes can cause cracks and buckles to appear on the asphalt surface overtime. By Sealcoating your asphalt surface, you make it less water-permeable and better resistant to UV rays and chemicals. This effectively extends the life of your asphalt by reducing the risk of cracks and other forms of damages. You get to avoid costly repairs in the long run by Sealcoating your asphalt surface.

Applying an Asphalt seal coat to your pavement surface is recommended every 2 or 3 years. This will ensure that you get the most out of your asphalt surface. But an asphalt seal coat does more than just extend the life of your asphalt surface, it also improves its appearance. Applying an asphalt driveway Sealcoating will make the surface look just as good as new. As asphalt ages, it loses it's black and begins to turn gray.

Our Asphalt Sealcoating Process
We follow a thorough and comprehensive approach that ensures the best results in Asphalt sealing Sealcoating services. Our asphalt Sealcoating process begins with a thorough cleanup of the asphalt surface to remove all debris and dust on the surface. Afterward, we prepare Sealcoating material. We use up to 4 pounds of sand for every gallon of sealant. We do this to reduce the slickness of the coat and prevent the surface from wearing off. Then we apply the seal coat and wait for it to dry before re-marking the surfaces.
Sealcoating For New Pavement, Repaving And Asphalt Overlays
Sealcoating is typically carried out as a repair and maintenance procedure. However, depending on the type and extent of damage, applying a seal coat may not repair the damage done to your pavement effectively. In this case, you may need to carry out a complete repaving or have an asphalt overlay to repair severely damaged portions of the pavement. This is then followed by Sealcoating to protect the surface right from the onset. Sealcoating can also be carried out for new pavement installation to consolidate the surface and extend its lifespan.
