Benefits of Sealcoating
10 years of
You could sealcoat your asphalt every 3 years for over 30 years and still not would not equal the expense of removing and replacing failed asphalt.
By sealcoating, we are providing a flexible, stable and homogeneous compound to act as a barrier to protect asphalt surfaces from the damaging effects of the elements. Sealcoating also fills in the porous surface of asphalt and keeps water from penetrating its structure. If cracks have already formed, sealcoating will help prevent those cracks from lengthening and widening.
New asphalt also needs to be sealcoated. Allow the new pavement to cure for 60 to
90 days and then promptly have the surface sealcoated. Depending on the condition
of your asphalt and the amount of traffic and water exposure, asphalt should be sealcoated
Routinely sealcoating your asphalt for pennies a square foot today saves you from spending dollars a square foot on major repairs down the road such as overlays, removal and replacement.
