Asphalt sealcoating is an essential process in preserving the appearance and functionality of your asphalt investment by protecting it from deterioration. Not only does a quality seal coat dramatically extend the life of your asphalt, it will also greatly reduce the amount of money you would have to spend on future maintenance or repairs. When asphalt is exposed to the elements, traffic, or temperature changes, it can harder or oxidize. This causes the pavement to become brittle, resulting in the formation of cracks due to the asphalt’s inability to bend and flex. Sealcoating combats this by providing a waterproof membrane that slows down oxidation and prevents shed water from entering the base material.
A good seal coat can also serve as a safety measure. Sealcoating increases pavement texture which increases surface friction. This makes the asphalt less slippery and stopping quickly easier.
