Is seal coating right for You?
The short answer is yes. Virtually all pavements will benefit greatly from having seal coating applied within the first year of being newly installed and every 2 to 4 years after. Without this maintenance, every year the cost of repairs will escalate, costing you more money in the long term than the relatively inexpensive seal coating.
The benefits of regular sealcoating
Whether it’s a small driveway or large parking lot, your pavement is a significant investment. Having seal coating applied to your asphalt surface goes a long way in protecting that investment by extending your pavement’s life. Regular seal coating will combat the detrimental effects of oil and gasoline, aging, UV damage, and water.
What is seal coating?
An asphalt seal coat is a protective coating applied to an asphalt surface. It creates a protective layer that slows down wearing, preventing water and other liquids from reaching the lower layers, as well as protecting the pavement from being damaged by sunlight.
Sealcoating is a vital part of maintaining a healthy and great looking parking lot or driveway. However, it wears out in a short time. It is important to have a fresh seal coat applied every 2 to 4 years to prevent degradation which can lead to costly repairs down the road.
Sealcoating is a relatively cheap way to maintain your asphalt driveway or parking lot and in the long term is the most cost effective way keep to your road healthy and visually appealing for many years.
From the minute your pavement sets, it becomes degraded by exposure to the air and sunlight. Anything you can do to slow this process down will extend the life of the pavement. So while some oxidation is necessary, you need to seal coat your pavement before it goes too far. Eventually, your pavement will become brittle and begin to crack. Sealcoating needs to be applied before the asphalt reaches this stage.
As a part of a comprehensive maintenance plan including crack filling and patching, seal coating will help your parking lot or driveway maintain an appearance of being near brand-new. An appealing parking lot or driveway does wonders for improving the curb appeal of your home or business. It will contribute to maintaining a darker color that will make your striping, curbing, and landscaping stands out.
Having pavement that looks good will make your home or business more appealing, increasing its overall value as well as protecting the investment you’ve made in your pavement.
