Sealcoating is a protective layer applied to an asphalt surface to shield it from damaging elements. Sealcoating, along with crack sealing, can double the lifespan of your asphalt pavement. It also has many other benefits, including preventing surface erosion, improving pavement flexibility, sealing small cracks, waterproofing the pavement and making the surface easier to clean. The smooth dark surface of a sealcoated asphalt pavement also looks better and keeps the asphalt looking new long after the sealcoat is applied. Finally, the sealcoat creates a greater contrast with striping, making it easier to see pavement markings for a longer period of time.

Sealcoating should be done 6 to 12 months after paving, and every 3 to 4 years after that (as needed.) Any cracks or potholes in the asphalt must be repaired before a sealcoat can be applied, and oil spots need to be primed for the sealcoat if they cannot be completely removed. A sealcoat takes 18 to 36 hours to dry enough for vehicles to drive over it, and 48 hours to safely withstand water.

Sealcoatlng is a preventative way to extend the life of your asphalt, it not only beautifies your pavement but also helps to protect your investment.

The purpose of sealcoating is to protect the asphalt from ultraviolet light, oxidation, water penetration & chemical attack such as oil or fuel leaked or spilled on your pavement.

When asphalt is properly maintained , such as crack filling & sealcoating it has been proven this preventative maintenance can nearly double the life of your pavement. The cost of sealing is pennies on the dollar versus the cost of asphalt replacement.
