The Importance of Sealcoating
Sealcoating your asphalt pavement protects its surface from damaging elements such as oxidation from the sun, oil products, precipitation, and the adverse effects of freeze-thaw cycles.
Routine sealcoating helps prevent deterioration and prolongs the life of asphalt pavements, therefore saving you hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars in future costly repairs.
Sealcoating should be professionally applied one year after your asphalt driveway or parking lot is constructed and then every two to three years, depending on wear and tear.
To prevent water intrusion into the underlying layers of the pavement structure and, consequently, preventing further weakening of the pavement as temperatures cause the structure to expand and contract.
Any crack will allow moisture penetration into the sub-base, so they should all be treated.
We believe Cracks narrower than 3/8 inch should not be filled because there isn’t sufficient space for the filler to penetrate and adhere to the inner sidewalls.
Extensive cracking or “alligatoring” should be patched, not filled.
The sooner, the better. At the very least, within one or two seasons after they appear. Water intrusion should be avoided to maintain the structural integrity of your asphalt surface.
