Sealcoating protects and provides greater longevity for asphalt. The majority of factors causing asphalt damage can be prevented through regular maintenance.
Why Get Sealcoating?
Action Asphalt provides quality seal coating that blocks the sun’s ultraviolet rays which causes the asphalt to oxidize and become brittle. While sealcoats have historically been designed for off-highway use where there are low traffic speeds, newer, more complex blends are now being used on roads, highways, and runways.
Benefits of Sealcoating
It’s a good idea to resurface your pavement periodically. The seal coating and crack filler will not only stop your asphalt from falling into an ongoing state of disrepair, but it will go a long way towards restoring it’s original, “like-new” appearance.
When sealcoatings are applied properly, they will slow the deterioration of your pavement, protect the surface against further wear-and-tear and greatly improves the surface appearance with a rich, uniform black color. Furthermore, the cost of sealcoatings and asphalt crack filler is rather negligible next to the cost repairs that might be needed down the road.
How long does it last?
Sealcoats typically last between 3-5 years, depending on the quality of the material used and the millage (thickness) of the application. Sealcoats have a shorter life span than heavier-duty treatments like slurry seal and micro-surfacing but are sometimes preferable for their cost benefits.
