What benefit does sealcoating pavement give? When you sealcoat asphalt pavement, it extends the life of your pavement. And it’s extending the life of your pavement investment. Regardless if you are sealcoating a driveway or a parking lot, the life of your original pavement investment is significantly longer. Sealcoating is an important part of your pavement maintenance program and it will extend your pavement’s life.
At DRYCO, we offer a number of pavement maintenance seminars throughout the year for property managers. Educating them on the importance of pavement maintenance and the different steps they can take to ensure their property’s pavement investment goes a long way.
In a recent article from For Construction Pros they write, “most asphalt pavements are designed and constructed correctly – meaning the subgrade is sound and compacted, the appropriate base material is placed and compacted properly, and the correct thickness of hot mix (based on type and volume of traffic) is placed and compacted properly – sealcoating will extend pavement life by protecting the asphalt binder from oxidation, slowing the inevitable deterioration.”
