While many materials you can use in paving are durable and long lasting, sometimes it helps if you give them a little extra assistance in the durability field. This is especially true in Illinois where we can see a lot of rain and cold weather. By seal-coating your paving solution, you are giving them added protection from the elements and from wear and tear. Think of it as similar to you using an umbrella when it’s heavy rain outside! We offer a wide range of seal coating solutions using only the best materials available.
Using a quality seal coating product on your asphalt driveway or pathway makes a lot of sense. It helps to protect your asphalt from the weather, oil and fuel spillages, as well as traffic of any type. It also reduces any long term repair costs so will save you money too. We normally recommend seal coating your asphalt every 3 to 5 years or so, though this can depend on just how much it has to cope with. Seal coating really does extend the life of your asphalt surface and it also makes it look better too.
What is Seal-Coating?
Seal coating is usually made from using either asphalt cement or coal tar pitch then mixing it with water, special fillers, and emulsifying agents or additives. This mixture is then added to your paving surface in thin coats. This offers your surface a high level of protection against various substances and elements as well as making it look fantastic. We only ever apply seal coating under certain weather conditions for the best results. We also advise customers to keep any sort of traffic away from the coated surface for up to 36 hours after application is complete.
There are many advantages to seal coating your asphalt driveway or pathway. Whenever a new coat is applied, it makes your paved surface look like new. It is ideal for both residential and commercial locations and enhances the look of your property. It fills in any gaps and holes in the surface and reduces the chance of penetration from water or other substances such as oil. By waterproofing your surface, it also drastically reduces the chance of damage from the freeze/thaw cycle. And once your surface is coated, it is far easier to clean and maintain as the coating makes the surface smoother. It is also resistant to high pressure washing and any detergents. With so many advantages, why haven’t you done it before?
