Sealcoating is critical to maintaining healthy pavement. Not only does it maintain flexibility and protect your pavement from the rain and sun, but it also extends the life of your pavement twice as long than pavement that has not been treated. Seal coating is a cost-effective way of repairing or surfacing the existing pavement, extending the life of the pavement and driveway. There are two main types of seal coating Squeegee (which can result in a streaky application) and Spray.
It is recommended to do your pavement’s first application within the first two to three years of the pavement being placed. Then to maintain healthy pavement, seal coating every three to five years thereafter will help your pavement have a long healthy life.
There are different forms of seal coating material, but all methods work by a process of cleaning and patching the existing surface, then coating the entire surface of the asphalt with a liquid sealer that forms an impenetrable barrier once it is dry. With the surface seal coat intact, the underlying asphalt is protected from the effects of water, wind, and sunlight that can degrade and harden the asphalt and cause it to crack and crumble.
