Asphalt is a cost-effective pavement solution and offers years of service when maintained properly. Over time, the binder in asphalt begins to degrade and your asphalt surfaces may begin to crack, chip, or erode. A sealcoat can help protect your surfaces from damage and prolong the service life of your asphalt surface. Not all sealcoating options are the same. We can help you select the best sealcoating technique for your surface to give you the most durable surface possible and keep your asphalt surfaces looking and working great.
Asphalt Sealing, or sealcoating, is simply the process of laying a thin protective layer over asphalt-based pavement to give it a protective layer of protection against the elements: oil, water, and U.V. The positive effects of asphalt sealing have long been debated. Some claim that asphalt sealing increases the lifespan of the pavement, but again, there’s no evidence that backs up those claims. In fact, asphalt sealing can actually damage the pavement by creating cracks. The excessive water and oil that can be soaked into the asphalt also weaken its structural integrity. And, the chemical fumes emitted during asphalt sealing can also be harmful to humans.
With all of that in mind, it’s not surprising that a lot of business owners, when they set out to perform asphalt sealing, opt to go the non-per square foot route. For one thing, the costs are much lower, often no more than a few cents per square foot. And, the benefits of lower cost and improved performance are well-known. After all, if you want to save money, you want to reduce your operation costs, right?
