Sealcoating

sealcoating

Sealcoating is a quick and easy way to add curb appeal to your driveway or parking lot, but what does it do exactly? For starters, as a surface protectant, sealer acts as a coating for your asphalt pavement, blocking out the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, preventing moisture penetration from the elements, and helping to prevent oxidation. In addition, a good quality sand-mix sealer fills small cracks in your pavement's surface. When applied in conjunction with a hot rubberized crack sealing program, the pavement's natural deterioration rate drops dramatically.

According to Transportation Department studies from five different states, a regular pavement maintenance program can help prevent costly overhaul and repaving expenses. For every $1 spent in pavement maintenance, $10 is saved in replacement costs (www.pavementpreservation.org ). And, according to a fifteen year study by the Asphalt Institute (www.asphaltinstitute.org ), a 40,000 sq. yd. parking lot utilizing a regular program of preventative sealcoating and crack repair saved approximately $45,000 in rehabilitation costs over the course of the study term.
