Why should you seal your driveway? Asphalt pavements have a “service life,” meaning the condition and life expectancy tends to depend on the level of traffic incurred by the pavement, along with the weather conditions it’s exposed to each year.
Preventive maintenance like sealcoating helps prolong the life of your pavement. Also, it saves you money in entirely preventable repairs down the road. Sealing pavement helps close small cracks, which would over time turn in to large fissures and cause water to seep down into the base material.
Also, the dark black color of the newly applied seal coat will help to improve the appearance of both old and new asphalt. New sealcoating will also help to preserve the resilience of asphalt surfaces and hide small cracks, rough spots, and patches. It also makes your lot’s line striping more visible.
