A preventive pavement maintenance strategy is more cost-effective than corrective maintenance – and that’s where sealcoating comes in. Sealcoating is the process of applying a liquid sealer that coats the top of pavement in order to protect it from the elements and prolong its lifespan.
Unsealed asphalt will dry out, turn grey, crack, “alligator,” lose aggregate, and ultimately form potholes and sinkholes over time resulting from complete stone base failure below the asphalt.
Full depth asphalt patching includes replacing the underlying stone base and is the most expensive asphalt repair, but may be avoided by performing sealcoating – the cheapest form of asphalt maintenance.
Sealcoating can triple untreated pavement life by providing superior defense against manmade factors such as oils and fuels which soften asphalt as well as environmental factors such as drying from the sun and water penetration from rain and ice.
Aside from the practical benefits of sealcoating, it provides that like-new appearance and beautiful aesthetic to your property. Sealcoating enhances your parking lots and streets with a deep, rich, matte black finish which provides a clean, crisp appearance that makes your building and landscaping pop in contrast.
Ideally, asphalt sealing should be performed shortly after new paving, then maintained on a periodic schedule. It’s much more cost effective to invest a little now on preventative maintenance versus a lot later on repair.
