Driveway Sealing

What are the benefits of our driveway sealing services?

Coating and sealing your driveway or parking lot within the crucial period of the first three years is important. Driveway sealing shields it from water penetration and oxidation, blocking out deteriorating agents such as rain, wind, snow, sun, ice, and frost. It also provides resistance to spills such as antifreeze, oil, fuel, and salt. Our sealer is made from a coal tar emulsion which does not dissolve in oil or gas. Our asphalt sealer works to extend pavement life by reducing exposure from water and oxygen.

Asphalt pavements are a conglomerate of sand, glue, and rock which is the liquefied agent that binds everything together.

Such a surface can be protected by applying a seal coating which functions as a shield between elements which can break asphalt pavement down. Typically a coal tar emulsion sealer is applied which protects against water, salt, gas, chemicals, and UV radiation. It effectively combats the asphalt pavement from degradation.

In addition to saving money in the long run, another one of the advantages of seal coating is that it is an investment which adds to the value of your property and improves its aesthetic appeal to your patrons. The first thing a possible tenant or customer notices is the parking lot. Is it well maintained? Does it have a pleasing appearance? Is safety an issue? To themselves they think. "If they take care of their parking lot then they must take care of their condominiums or apartments." It is a well secured fact by marketing studies that a well maintained property results in higher occupancy frequencies, fewer turnovers, and generally more satisfaction.

Aesthetic Improvemtnts

A fresh coat of seal adds a dark black color to the surface, making it appear and wear new. Such a look creates a clean, rich appearance that suggests a positive image of the company, residential complex, or facility.

Protects the base/sub base

A sound base and sub base is needed by good pavement. When crack sealing is done right, water is kept from coming into and weakening these areas. With enough damage there can be a loss of structural support, which can then result in more cracking or weaknesses and can eventually develop into a pothole. Crack sealing can preserve the pavement beside the cracks. Cracks that are cleaned and sealed properly are composed of material that adheres firmly to the sides throughout the year, during which the pavement expands and contracts. Without crack sealing the material beside the pavement will undergo more contact with the elements, which results in hardening and secondary cracking along the main crack, and increased oxidation of the binder.

Driveway Sealing Removes

Driveway sealing removes the deleterious effects of sand, stone and dirt. When such bits of matter find their ways into cracks they can limit crack closure during warmer weather. Moreover, they can result in compressive pressure at the face of the cracks that can result in chipping and loosening of the asphalt concrete. In cases of extremely oxidized pavements such stresses can cause the pavement to lip, which is an upheaval of concrete at slanting fissures. Driveway sealing will extend the life of pavement as well as saving money. Sealing cracks, controlling pavement interferences, crack growth, and base and sub base conditions, pavement life will be extended. Reinforcing adjacent pavement is done by filling in cracks to reduce water damages and strengthens it. Crack sealing is done by placing prepared materials either into or above pavement cracks that prevents the intrusion of harsh elements. For more information visit the following links:
