The most basic reason for seal coating your asphalt driveway, parking lot, walkway, or sidewalk is to extend their lifespan.
Sealcoating is an effective pavement maintenance plan. For this reason, paving contractors recommend you seal coat your pavements every 3-5 years.
However, that’s not the only benefit of seal coating your driveway. Here are some more:
- Aesthetic appeal
Do you recall the look of your asphalt pavement when it was first installed? It was a beautiful, rich, black, and clean appearance. That flawlessness is what you get when you seal coat your pavement.
- Prevents or slows oxidation from the sun
Asphalt pavement is no competition to sunlight and UV rays.
Sure, oxidation from the sun is required to increase the hardness of the pavement. Still, too much exposure makes the pavement more brittle, causing it to lose its ability to deflect water, and soon enough, you’ll be dealing with huge asphalt cracks and pavement raveling.
Sealcoating prevents pavement oxidation from going too far, at the same time protecting your pavement from water damage.
- Prevent Damage from oil spills
Oils, grease, acetic acid, and other chemicals are notorious for eating away asphalt pavement, which is why we recommend seal coating to prevent these liquids from staining your pavement or penetrating through.
How long has it been since you seal-coated your pavements? If it’s close to or more than 5years, it’s time to schedule seal coating services again.
