Sealcoating

Crack sealing and sealcoating are well-known ways to help preserve existing pavement and avoid costly asphalt resurfacing.  Repairing cracks early and using the proper procedures and sealant will add life to your existing surface.

  • Hot rubberized sealant stays flexible and resilient in all kinds of climates.
  • Bonds to asphalt or concrete and hardens quickly.
  • Will not bleed through sealcoating or asphalt overlays.

Advantages

Several advantages exist to sealcoating your pavement.

Stops weather damage

Sealcoating prevents the damaging effects of oxidation and water penetration.  The Asphalt Institute states “The accumulation of moisture in pavement structures is probably the greatest cause of pavement distress”!

Prevents oxidation

The sun’s ultraviolet rays harden and dry out the asphalt pavement surface.  This accelerates raveling and erosion and can reduce asphalt thickness in just a few years.

Sealed vs. Unsealed

Unsealed: Oxidation dries out and deteriorates asphalt binder.  Pavement loses flexibility and small cracks develop.  Water, chemicals, etc. penetrate surface and pavement deterioration rapidly progresses.

Sealed: Sealant keeps out the damaging effects of oxidation and the elements, greatly extending the service life of the pavement while enhancing the appearance.

Sealcoating

Resists gas, oil, and salt

Sealcoating resists the highly damaging effects of gas and oil seepage and all other road chemicals including alkalis and winter salt.

Beautifies pavement

Sealcoating restores original black color to asphalt and greatly enhances overall appearance of property.  The smooth, even surface of sealed pavement makes sweeping, snow removal, and maintenance easier and less costly.

Our pavement sealer is rubberized for lasting wear and durability.

Sealcoating and Money

Sealcoating costs little, but does a lot.  A good sealer is common sense insurance for bituminous paved areas.  Preventative maintenance is more economical than expensive repairs and replacements.  The economy resulting from sealcoating is becoming increasingly recognized.  Sealcoating applied at a price of a few pennies per square foot.
