What are the benefits of Seal Coating?
Sealcoating provides a new looking, low-maintenance surface which will improve the appearance on any property.
Protects asphalt from oxidation due to exposure to UV light from the sun. This oxidation turns driveways grey, and accelerates the degradation of the asphalt binder. A sealcoated service is significantly more resistant to oxidation than bare asphalt.
Sealer seals porous asphalt, which protects against water penetration and feeze/thaw damage, reducing cracking and protecting the base of the driveway from erosion.
Gas & Oil Resistant:
Asphalt is a product of the refining of petroleum, and as a result, it is vulnerable to attack by petroleum products. Gasoline spills and oil drips will ultimately eat away the asphalt binder and cause the pavement to fail. Sealer is made through a different process, and it is very resistant to petroleum products and other harsh chemicals.
Protects Your Investment:
Sealcoating can save real dollars for pavement owners. Many years of research has proven that proper maintenance including sealcoating can double the life of an asphalt pavement.
