3 Reasons Why Sealcoating is Important
When you invest in your driveway, it pays to take necessary steps to maintain it over time. Many think asphalt pavement deteriorates because of constant traffic, which is not true. Pavement breakdown occurs because of outside elements like weather (sun and rain), moisture, and harsh chemicals and pollutants including gasoline, oils, and de-icers.
The best way to protect your asphalt driveway or parking lot is to have a professional sealcoat every two to three years. Sealcoating locks out chemicals and forces of nature. At John Parichuk Paving, we know exactly what it takes to keep your asphalt looking brand new.
Our specially formulated sealcoating application shields against the harmful elements that typically lead to surface deterioration. We only use the best materials and hire experts in the paving industry to make sure our customers are satisfied with the results.
Increase the life of your pavement and restore it to a like-new look at a lower cost with sealcoating.
Here is what proper asphalt sealing application can do for your driveway or parking lot:
Protects Against Oxidation
Regular sealing applications shield against the sun’s drying action that causes raveling, cracking, and deterioration.
The accumulation of moisture under pavement is probably the biggest cause of pavement damage. Sealcoating keeps water from seeping into the porous asphalt driveway and parking lot. By locking out moisture, you take great steps in maintaining your pavement.
Asphalt is a petroleum product and has tripled in cost over the years. Those costs are passed on to the consumer. Sealcoating is a much more cost-effective method. At just a few cents per square foot, sealing application protects your investment and prevents costly repairs.
