Driveway Seal Coating
Asphalt sealer provides many benefits: it restores the rich dark color of new asphalt; it prevents your asphalt from drying out; and it is a protective layer that helps prevent oil stains!
What's the Difference Between Crack Sealing and Crack Filling?
Asphalt is durable, flexible, and can withstand lots of wear and tear and even occasional overloading because of these features. However, the shifting of the earth can cause deep cracks in your asphalt surface. Even if you notice just a few small cracks, have them checked to prevent further damage.
Crack sealing is completed with a high quality rubberized crack sealer. It fills in the cracks and allows for future flexing, while preventing water and debris infiltration. It is more expensive than crack filling, but well worth the cost as it is a long-lasting repair that prevents future damage.
Crack filling is performed with an asphalt based crack filler. This asphalt filler is used for static cracks that are unlikely to shift. These cracks are filled to prevent water infiltration that could cause deterioration of your driveway’s foundation.
Benefits of Seal Coating Your Driveway
Driveway sealing involves laying down a thin layer of high quality sealer that acts as a protective barrier. Asphalt surfaces have beneficial oils in it that keep it pliable and strong, and seal coat can help preserve these. If the oils are depleted from the drying effects of exposure to UV rays, and damage caused by extreme weather, then your driveway can become brittle and prone to crumbling. Regular sealcoating with coal tar or asphalt emulsion driveway sealer is a cost-effective measure that helps reduce long term repair costs.
Applying sealant restores the rich, dark look of fresh asphalt to older driveways. It has a relatively short drying time and is ready for foot traffic after only a few hours. For residential asphalt, each application is usually effective a few years, making it a simple, cost-effective way to protect your driveway.
