We are Delaware's Asphalt Sealcoating Specialists
Asphalt pavement is primarily rock and/or stone and gravel, along with a binder. The rock, or aggregate, is held together with this binder also known as asphalt cement. Maintaining this binder is essential in prolonging the deterioration of asphalt services. Rain, U.V rays and and chemicals, as they are introduced into the asphalt, will degrade the binder thus begin the degradation process of the asphalt. This will continue, and create a surface that turns brittle. To reduce these effects, it is important to implement a maintenance program that utilizes sealcoating to extend the life of your driveway or parking lot.
Seal coating will provide a layer of protection blocking out the following elements; water, oils, and U.V damage. In addition, when applied to manufacturers' specification, sealcoating provides a slip resistant surface with a deep black finish that greatly enhances the overall appearance of your driveway or parking lot. A regularly scheduled seal coating program will more than double the life of your asphalt, saving you significant dollars down the road. Instead of paying thousands of dollars for new pavement, it is more cost effective to pay pennies on the dollar to maintain your pavement. To summarize, seal coating every two to three years will certainly extend the life of your asphalt pavement - for minimal cost. When applied appropriately, and at the right time, sealcoating prevents oxidation, stops weather damage and beautifies pavement.
