Sealcoating for All Kinds of Asphalt

Our fully-licensed paving contractors sealcoat asphalt for homeowners, business owners, and property managers throughout the area. We use tried and true techniques and take pride in our work. A proper sealcoating will leave your asphalt looking rejuvenated and also protect it from the elements.

If you have a parking lot or truckyard, our asphalt sealer will protect it from all the traffic that it receives on a daily basis. Seal coat protects asphalt from cracking and crumbling by being a barrier between traffic, UV rays, oil spills and the asphalt beneath. 

Homeowners also benefit from sealing their asphalt driveways. Asphalt sealant boosts curb appeal by restoring the dark black color of fresh asphalt. It also helps lock in the beneficial oils that keeps asphalt somewhat flexible and resistant to cracking.

Why is Sealcoating Important

Asphalt sealer is a protective barrier for asphalt that serves many purposes. The first is as a protectant, blocking the damaging effect of sun rays, oil stains, and heavy traffic. Secondly, an application of seal coat prevents asphalt from drying out and becoming brittle. Thirdly, asphalt sealcoat helps prevent water seepage, protecting the foundation of your pavement.

Restore Your Asphalt

In addition to protecting your asphalt, sealcoating is a great way to refresh the look of your asphalt and enhance curb appeal. Make a great first impression on customers, or help increase the resale value of your home. Sealcoating asphalt is a simple way to improve the look of your property as well take care of your asphalt. By sealing asphalt every 1-3 years, your asphalt will always be in good shape and look its best.

Asphalt sealer can either be sprayed or brushed. While brushed-on sealant lasts longer, and imparts a thicker coat, it can be cost prohibitive for large properties. For this reason, commercial properties often opt for sprayed on sealant. Either way, high quality asphalt sealcoat protects pavement from wear and tear, harsh UV rays, water infiltration, and other damaging elements like winter salt and car fluid leaks.



Before sealcoating is performed, crackfilling is completed. Filling cracks with rubberized crack filler helps prevent debris and water infiltration and extensive damage. When water seeps in through cracks, it can compromise the asphalt foundation as well as cause potholes, from expansion due to freeze-thaw cycles. Sealing large and small cracks is an important part of routine maintenance.



If your paved area has more extensive damage, like potholes, we first repair these areas before sealcoating. Patching potholes helps prevent further damage. Vehicle traffic over potholes causes more damage and crumbling. Water infiltration through these breaks in the pavement can cause further damage. Cutting and patching is the best way to repair potholes for good.
