Why Sealcoat Your Surfaces?

The primary benefit of sealcoating pavement is essentially to protect it from the deteriorating effects of the elements and oil/petroleum products. Harsh weather conditions such as wind, rain and water can cause the pavement to oxidize and deteriorate over time, which in turn, will cause it to crumble and crack. This is especially true in the winter time, when water freezes and the freeze-thaw cycle begins to deteriorate the asphalt. This creates tiny cracks, reduces its flexibility and ability to adapt to traffic flow and changes in seasonal temperatures. By sealcoating, the waterproof layer that is installed slows oxidization and stops water from entering the roadbed and decreasing its life span.

  • Increased flexibility to allow the asphalt to adapt to weather and traffic changes
