How Much Does Sealcoating a Driveway Cost?
With winter on the way, it is probably time for you to think about sealcoating your driveway. Sealing your driveway can help to prolong its life, protecting it from the harsh weather elements in our area. From extreme heat to below freezing temperatures, mother nature can wreak havoc on our asphalt driveways. Additionally, it protects from vehicle-related spills like oil and from water from getting into any cracks. It even enhances the curb appeal of your home, making it look fresher and newer.
How Often Should I Sealcoat?
An asphalt driveway will generally continue to be in good condition for about 2 to 3 years. You should periodically check for signs of cracking, warping, and small holes. If you start to notice any of these signs, then it is time to have a trusted paving contractor take a look to determine if it needs sealcoated.
How Much Will It Cost?
The price of having your driveway sealcoated will vary due to a few reasons.
Size – The size of your driveway will certainly impact the cost of sealcoating. If you have a long winding driveway, you can expect to pay a little more than if you had just a small, one car size driveway.
Asphalt Damage – It is important to keep in mind that the older your asphalt driveway, the more damaged it will be. This makes it a little more difficult to sealcoat, therefore impacting the price you pay because you will need some repair work as well.
Doing routine maintenance on your asphalt driveway will surely save you money in the long run since a large part of the cost of sealcoating is the preparation beforehand. If your driveway is taken care of and does not need a lot of repair work, the cost to sealcoat will be less than if it has a lot of cracks or warping.
