WE ARE CONSTANTLY ASKED... "Is sealcoating really necessary or is it just a paint that makes it look good for a little while?"
THE FACTS AND LIFE SPAN OF UNSEALED ASPHALT: Left untreated, asphalt pavement will deteriorate rapidly. The asphalt binder that holds the pavement together begins to oxidize and to weather soon after installation. The pavement loses it flexibility and then becomes brittle. Meanwhile, the fine aggregate ravels from the surface and the surface "grays out." Cracks develop and moisture then penetrates the asphalt causing further damage and deterioration to the pavement.
THE SOLUTION: Sealcoating replenishes the binder that is lost through weathering and aging and provides superior protection against environmental distress. Sealcoat restores the original, rich black color to the asphalt at minimal cost (versus resurfacing) and greatly enhances the overall appearance of your property.
