At Mr. Pavement, we want your driveway, parking lot, or walkway to stay strong and beautiful for as long as possible. That’s why we recommend an asphalt sealcoating every 2-3 years. Our experts use the best materials available and work quickly so you can enjoy your freshly coated area as soon as possible. Here, we share some of the benefits to a quality asphalt sealcoating:
One of the main reasons to sealcoat your asphalt is to protect it from water damage. During the colder months, a classic freeze-thaw cycle can be dangerous. If your asphalt has cracks in it, water water will seep into these cracks when it rains. Once the temperature drops and it gets cold, the water in the cracks will freeze and expand. During the daytime, the water will melt and then freeze again overnight. As this cycle repeats, the consistent expansion of water can make your asphalt cracks worse and eventually lead to damage that needs to be repaired.
With an asphalt sealcoating, we can provide an extra layer of protection so you won’t have to worry about your paved area every time it rains, sleets, or snows.
When it comes to asphalt, the most used areas are parking lots, driveways, and roadways. Because of their high traffic, these areas subject to spills. While many liquids won’t directly affect the composition of your asphalt, others with chemical bases can. These include oil, gas, grease, acetic acid, and more, which can eat away at your asphalt. At Mr. Pavement, we recommend sealcoating your asphalt on a regular basis to prevent spills from penetrating your paved area. A sealcoating can also prevent liquids from staining your area.
Nothing beats the look of freshly laid asphalt. Right after an installation is complete, you’ll notice the area has a deep, dark color that gives it a richness and makes the area around it look great. An asphalt sealcoating can give you that same aesthetic appeal (without all of the installation time). If you want to improve the look of your home or your building, a deep, dark sealcoating can do just the thing.
Overall, sealcoating your asphalt can help extend the lifespan of your paved area. When you hire a professional paving company (like Mr. Pavement) to apply an even coat of high-quality material, you can be confident you’re providing good care for your paved area. A sealcoating can reduce long-term repair costs and help you avoid the need to resurface or replace your driveway, parking lot, or walkway.
