A professionally installed Sealcoat can extend the life of your pavement, save you money and help you make a great first impression to your customers! Asphalt pavement, is primarily rock and/or stone and gravel, along with a binder. The rock, or aggregate, is held together with this binder also known as asphalt cement. In order to maintain the integrity of the binder in asphalt it is important to implement a maintenance program that utilizes sealcoating to extend the life of your paved surface. Sealcoating will provide a layer of protection blocking out the elements: water, oils, and U.V. damage. In addition, when applied to manufacturers’ specifications, sealcoating provides a slip resistant surface with a deep black finish that beautifies the parking lot or driveway. A regularly scheduled sealcoating program will more than double the life of the asphalt, saving you significant dollars down the line. To summarize, sealcoating every two to three years will certainly extend the life of your asphalt pavement for minimal cost. When applied appropriately and at the right time, sealcoating prevents oxidation, sealcoating stops weather damage, and sealcoating beautifies pavement.
