Signs your Driveway Needs Sealcoating
Sealcoating works best on surfaces that are in good condition, free from large cracks and other damage. New asphalt surfaces should not be sealed any earlier than six months; asphalt driveways benefit from sealcoating six months to one year after the asphalt is applied. If you’re not sure when the last time your driveway was seal coated or you see the following signs, it is time to call Exit 7 Sealcoating to keep the finish on your finish looking fresh.
- Loss of Dark and Sharp Color
- Prominent Cracks
- Pavement is 1 year old
- Winter is coming
Sealcoating can offer protection up to three years if the surface is free of cracks and other damage mentioned above.
Pros & Benefits of Sealcoating Asphalt
The benefits of sealcoating for asphalt pavement are plentiful. First, it will improve the appearance of your asphalt, preserving the black color. Second, sealcoating maintains a smooth surface, preventing dirt and chemicals from collecting and harming the surface. It is also a low-cost option compared to repairing damaged asphalt or completely resurfacing the area. Sealcoating allows new oil to seep into the asphalt and keep it flexible. Flexible asphalt resists the effects of fluctuating temperatures; dry and brittle asphalt will crack, resulting in larger repairs. Our qualified contractors will be able to do a quick assessment of your asphalt surface to determine if sealcoating is a good option for you or if larger repairs are necessary.
