Advantages Offered by Asphalt Sealcoating

There are a number of advantages offered when you invest in Sealcoating for your asphalt parking lot or driveway. You can think of sealcoating as a type of preventative maintenance for your surface, much like the paint that is one your home, used to prevent the weather from causing wood deterioration. Learn about some of the specific benefits offered by sealcoating here.

When you sealcoat your asphalt, it will seal the smaller cracks that can become larger cracks, helping to prevent water from getting into the base material. Additionally, the dark black color that is present from a newly applied layer of Sealcoating will help to improve the aesthetic appearance of older asphalt, which will make your surface appear brand new again.

With a new layer of sealcoating you can also help to preserve the durability and the resilience of any asphalt surface, while helping to hide smaller rough patches, spots or cracks. It will also help the lines applied in parking lots to be much more visible. When the sealcoat is properly applied, it will also help your driveway to appear cleaner since the rain will be able to easily wash away the debris and dirt that have gathered on the smooth and non-porous surface.

Another advantage offered by sealcoating is that it will help to protect the asphalt from the sun, in addition to the effects of chemical spills such as gasoline and oil. The sealcoating will also fill in surface voices, which will reduce the exposure to UV rays and oxygen, while reducing the depth that gas and oil is able to permeate the asphalt.

The layer of sealcoating also acts as a waterproofing agent, which will minimize the rate that water enters into the asphalt. When sealcoating is applied, it will also prevent the seepage of moisture and water from any snow or rain, which reduces any damage that may be created by the freeze and thaw cycles.
