There are many things that can harm your asphalt including the sun, shifting earth, water damage, and traffic. Sealcoating creates a protective layer on top of your asphalt that helps to safeguard it from the wear and tear caused by these elements. If you’re searching for an asphalt company that specializes in sealcoating, look no further, XSealer has you covered.
What Harms Your Asphalt?
As mentioned, water, snow, ice, earth shifts, and vehicles can all cause harm to your asphalt. One of the harshest elements, the sun, can cause the oils in your asphalt to heat up and evaporate. As your asphalt begins to dry out, it loses some of its flexibility. This means that it cannot as readily adjust when vehicle weight is added or when the earth shifts, which can lead to cracking. Once asphalt cracks, water inevitably seeps in and penetrates the foundation which leads to cracks, potholes, and even collapse in extreme circumstances.
Benefits of Sealcoating
Longevity studies show that without sealcoating, asphalt lasts an average of 12 years. However, surfaces that are regularly sealcoated throughout their lifespan can last up to 30 years. Regular sealcoating means you’re protecting both your asphalt and your investment.
Another benefit of sealcoating is that it increases the flexibility of your asphalt. This flexibility ensures that large amounts of weight will not cause it to crack and crumble.
Sealcoating also allows you to limit liability for your home and business. When cracks and potholes appear someone can easily trip and hurt themselves or damage their car. Keeping your parking lot in pristine shape is an important part of maintaining a clean and safe environment for your home or business.
