WHAT IS SEALCOATING?
Sealcoating is a treatment which protects your driveway and walkways form the elements: water, air, oils, and UV light. Sealcoating is a layer of material applied to the top of the asphalt to protect it. Properly applied sealcoating can improve the look of your paving, and make it last longer. Sealcoating can protect your driveway for up to 5 years, depending on your weather conditions. At that time, your driveway can be prepped and sealcoated again.
ADVANTAGES OF SEALCOATING
Sealcoating can increase the lifespan of your asphalt paving, and also helps with water runoff. The sealcoat layer protects and seals the asphalt, preventing further cracking and chipping. Sealcoating also improves the cosmetic look of paving. It usually makes the surface a little darker, and makes your drive easier to clean. Sealcoating can improve the look of your paving, and your property in general.
WHEN IS SEALCOATING THE RIGHT OPTION?
Sealcoating should not be applied until your paving is completely cured. This is very important. Usually it is advisable to wait 1 – 2 years after installing new asphalt. The surface needs to have completely cured. Conditions need to be dry and manageable when applying sealcoating. Weather can be a factor when scheduling your sealcoating. Cameron Paving will go over all your options and determine if sealcoating is right for you.
