The Advantages of Sealcoating Asphalt
At Sunny Paving Company, we want your driveway, parking lot, or walkway to be as sturdy and beautiful as possible for as long as feasible. That is why an asphalt sealcoating is recommended every 2-3 years. Our professionals utilise the highest-quality materials and work efficiently so you may enjoy your newly coated area as soon as possible. Here are some of the advantages of a good asphalt sealcoating:
One of the most important reasons to sealcoat your asphalt is to keep it from absorbing water. A classic freeze-thaw cycle might be problematic during the colder months. If your asphalt has cracks, when it rains, water will seep into the cracks. The water in the cracks will freeze and grow as the temperature drops and it gets colder. The water will melt during the day and then freeze again overnight. As this cycle continues, the constant expansion of water can exacerbate your asphalt cracks and eventually result in damage that must be fixed.
We can add an extra layer of protection with an asphalt sealcoating, so you won’t have to worry about your paved area becoming wet every time it rains. sleets, or snows.
When it comes to asphalt, the most used areas are parking lots, driveways, and roadways. Because of their high traffic, these areas subject to spills. While many liquids won’t directly affect the composition of your asphalt, others with chemical bases can. These include oil, gas, grease, acetic acid, and more, which can eat away at your asphalt. At Sunny Paving Company, we recommend sealcoating your asphalt on a regular basis to prevent spills from penetrating your paved area. A sealcoating can also prevent liquids from staining your area.
Nothing compares to the appearance of newly placed asphalt. You’ll notice that the space around an installation has a deep, dark tone that gives it a depth and helps the area around it appear amazing. The same aesthetic appeal can be achieved with an asphalt sealcoating (without all of the installation time). If you want to improve the appearance of your house or structure, a deep, dark sealcoating is the way to go.
Overall, sealcoating your asphalt can help extend the lifespan of your paved area. When you hire a professional paving company (like Sunny Paving) to apply an even coat of high-quality material, you can be confident you’re providing good care for your paved area. A sealcoating can reduce long-term repair costs and help you avoid the need to resurface or replace your driveway, parking lot, or walkway.
