If you’ve found this webpage, you’re here for a reason.  You’ve performed an internet search for “Asphalt Services Jessup MD” because you’re in need of commercial or residential asphalt work.  Perhaps it’s a driveway that needs paving.  Or seal coating.  Maybe you’re a business owner that needs your parking lot sealed or striped.  Whatever asphalt service you require, XSealer Asphalt Maintenance has the experience, equipment, and know-how to get the job done.

Since many of our calls at this time of year are from homeowners needing their asphalt driveways seal coated, today’s blog entry will explain the reason why seal coating is such a good idea and why so many folks make sure to get this asphalt service done every few years in order to care for their driveways.

What does Seal Coating do?

Seal coating your driveway helps to prevent the following issues:

  • Crack Development
  • Crack Expansion
  • Erosion (Stones are coming up)
  • Grey or White Appearance

How Often should I Seal Coat?

Your asphalt driveway needs to be seal coated at least within the first 1-2 years of its lifetime. If it is not, the greying of your driveway will be an indicator of a major, yet often overlooked, issue: stone erosion. The stone in the asphalt will literally flake off and eventually wash away. This process destroys the surface of your driveway and exposes the core to water damage and eventually cracking. The base of the driveway might shift and, if the surface is not held together strongly, the driveway will fail and crack.

We highly recommend getting your driveway seal coated every three years at minimum, or every two ideally, in order to ensure the maximum driveway lifetime / durability. Anything sooner than around 15-17 months might cause issues with the driveway. The material needs time to wear. Imagine putting a layer of lotion on your body, and then another, and another, all in a few minutes or hours in the day. You’re just going to end up dripping with lotion. Sealer can get wet and sticky if used too often. It can and will track into your home if you have it done too often, unless advised otherwise.
