Sealcoating protects your driveway from environmental deterioration as well as petrochemicals from leaking vehicles. Sealcoating prolongs the life of your asphalt and enhances the appearance of your property. Sealcoating and crack-filling are often misunderstood. Many people believe their driveway will be smooth and level and the cracks will no longer be visible after sealcoating. This is a good description of resurfacing, but not for sealcoating. Sealcoating improves the appearance of asphalt leaving a fresh surface protecting pavement against destructive sun, gas, salt, oil snow, rain & frost while sealing in the asphaltic oils which keep your asphalt young, flexible and beautiful.
We recommend that you seal every two to three years. Many businesses seal every other year. Sealing is an excellent way to avoid expensive repairs and maintain an aesthetically pleasing drive or parking lot.
Here are some factors to consider when deciding how often to seal: How much traffic does the pavement receive? What are the weather conditions? What application methods were used when the sealer was applied? These issues can affect its longevity.
We use both a brush and spray unit. The sprayer works well for our commercial jobs because we can cover a large area in a short amount of time. This helps to apply the sealer at a good pace and prevents flashing or lines that may appear from overlapping layers of sealer that have dried at different times. We still use brushes for the edge work on our commercial jobs to ensure cleanliness.

Sealcoating can be applied for PENNIES per square foot. This is in comparison to replacing an asphalt surface which can be up to 20 times that amount. Sealcoating extends the life of asphalt surfaces and should be applied every other year. The cost of sealcoating is truly a minor expense when compared to the cost of pavement replacement.
