Why use the Seal Coating process?

New asphalt pavements seems dense and indestructible, but actually they are rather porous and begin to deteriorate immediately.
The sun oxidizes asphalt pavements, hardening the binder that holds the pavement together.  The pavement becomes brittle and begins to crack. Water enters the cracks.  The expansion and contraction of the water during freeze-thaw cycles enlarge the cracks.

The water seeps through the surface, softening the base and the sub-base.  The pavement buckles and separates under heavy loads.

Potholes are the Result      

Seal coating covers the asphalt with a membrane that resists the elements, protecting your asphalt pavement.

Properly designed asphalt pavements usually aren’t affected by traffic, but deteriorate from moisture, petroleum spills, chemicals, and oxidation caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays.  A good layer of seal not only resists these damaging agents, but also provides a neat, clean, and very attractive parking area.

 A new parking lot should be sealed 12 months after constructed and any lot older than that as soon as possible.  It will also need to be resealed every 2 to 3 years depending on the amount of traffic on the surface.

Seal Coating

Saves Money by extending pavement life and delaying pavement repair

Improves Appearance of old dull colored pavements

Reduces Cost for maintenance and cleaning

Seal coating is approximately 10% of the cost of new asphalt
