The Importance of Asphalt Sealcoating
Asphalt is made up of rock, fine stone, sand, or gravel and asphalt cement that holds everything together. Asphalt is a petroleum product. Unfortunately, that means other petroleum products such as oil, gasoline, and brake fluids dissolve into the asphalt and weaken it. Sealcoating fixes this problem. Sealcoating prevents oxidation and erosion of the top layer and it resists gas, diesel fuel, and oil.
Regular sealcoating can save you money in the long run as it extends the life of your parking area and reduces repair costs. When you fail to seal cracks of any size, they will only get bigger. When water gets into the cracks the freeze/thaw process makes the cracks grow. These cracks may lead to expensive asphalt replacement. Plus, the moisture causes potholes, larger cracks, and eventually, total asphalt failure that can also turn into financial and legal liabilities.
Sealcoating leaves a fresh, smooth surface. The smoother surface means it is easier to clean up and maintain. Plus, sealcoating improves the appearance old asphalt, making it look brand new. Finally, the surface becomes more slip-resistant with better traction for vehicles.
Asphalt should be sealed every two to three years, but if you notice alligator cracks, lingering puddles, fading, or stains, you may want to consult with an asphalt repair contractor sooner.
