Sealcoating is a process in which coal tar emulsion is used over an asphalt pavement . The asphalt in your driveway can deteriorate due to exposure from the sun, or removal of snow in the winter. Pavement seal coating is done for both improving the look of the pavement along with the property it is on, as well as extending the life of the pavement.
Paving is the process of adding a layer of asphalt over your existing asphalt or stone. Sealcoating is a liquid that is usually brushed or sprayed over your existing driveway.
Every Situation Varies on factors like weather and environment, but as a rule of thumb you should stay off the drive for at least 2 to 3 days to allow the sealcoating time to properly cure so that it doesn’t track onto adjoining areas or scuff. Rainy days cause the product even longer to cure.
Sealcoating a surface too often is not necessary unless it gets a lot of traffic or exposure to the weather. Every 2-3 years you should evaluate your property and see if it needs sealcaoting, or when it starts to look ‘dry’.
The Cost of asphalt installation depends on the condition of the existing area, required ground work, and square footage of the property. To get a quick and free estimate.Click here.
Unsealed cracks will lead to more cracks, spidering, alligator cracks, and pot holes. These will expand and inevitably turn into major pavement failure which will result in costly repair in the future. You can repair this using Hot Crack Filling.
