The Benefits of SealcoatingSealcoating is a vital step in ensuring your asphalt is protected against elements that may damage it over time. Your asphalt is constantly exposed to the weather, as well as harsh chemicals and heavy vehicles. Sealcoating adds an extra layer of protection to keep your asphalt looking and performing at its best.

Sealcoating is a sound investment in the quality of your pavement and has several benefits:

  • Longevity. When asphalt is seal coated, it can last much longer than it would without this protective layer. Regular sealcoating can more than double the lifespan of your pavement, as it is protected from many of the materials that often cause damage. Sealcoating creates a barrier between the asphalt and the elements, protecting it from harsh sunlight and rain, which can break down the pavement over time.
  • Appearance. Sealcoating refreshes the appearance of your driveway or parking lot. Sealcoating can fill in small cracks and fissures that may have developed in the asphalt, resulting in a fresh and clean appearance after it is applied.
  • Cost Effective. Because sealcoating has many protective properties, seal coated asphalt will require fewer repairs over its lifespan. If sealcoating is applied every two to three years, as is recommended, it can reduce instances of damage and lower the chances of needing to replace the asphalt.
