Asphalt Sealcoating Purpose and Benefits
The purpose of sealcoating asphalt walkways, driveways, and parking lots is to provide preventative maintenance to prevent asphalt surfaces from deteriorating. Sealcoating closes small cracks and prevents water from seeping in, making the cracks larger and weakening the base material below. Sealcoat's rich, dark, black color improves the appearance of asphalt walkways, driveways, and parking lots and makes them look great for years. The dark color attracts more sunlight speeding up the melting of snow and ice. Sealcoating extends the life of your asphalt driveway, walkway, or parking lot protecting your investment. It also preserves asphalt surfaces' resilience, helps hide small rough spots, cracks, patches and makes parking lot traffic lines much more visible.
Cleaner Better Protected Surfaces
Applying sealcoating creates a smooth, non-porous surface that helps keep asphalt walkways, driveways, and parking lots cleaner by making washing off dirt and debris a breeze. Plus, sealcoating helps to protect asphalt paving from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays, as well as accidentally spilled gasoline, oil, or chemicals that all too commonly ruin the appearance and safety of asphalt driveways and parking lots. Asphalt Sealcoating is an effective waterproofing agent that significantly reduces the amount of and rate at which water enters and penetrates the asphalt surfaces on any property.
Reduces Freeze/Thaw Cycle Damage
Sealcoating helps to prevent the annual freeze/thaw cycle from damaging your driveway, parking lots, and other asphalt surfaces. Sealcoating can slow the rate of cracking freezing and thawing of the subsurface. This helps to keep your asphalt walkways, driveways, and parking lots smooth, safe, and attractive. Sealcoating's pliability helps it withstand hot or cold weather.
