An asphalt driveway represents a significant investment for homeowners, and protecting that investment is important. Professional sealcoating offers the perfect solution for beautifying and extending the life of your paved areas. Homeowners should never settle for substandard DIY products that promise more than they can actually deliver. Our professional sealcoating service will keep your asphalt driveway looking brand new, and will help to prolong the life of your asphalt and greatly reduce your annual repair costs.
What Is Asphalt Sealcoat?
Over time, your asphalt driveway and other paved surfaces will begin to deteriorate. UV rays, petroleum based chemicals such as oil and gas, and regular exposure to harsh elements will all contribute to this deterioration. Liquid sealcoat serves as a protective barrier against exposure to chemicals and normal wear and tear. When used as part of a regular maintenance program, sealcoating may double the expected life of your asphalt driveway, and will keep it looking brand new even in the harshest climates.
Sealcoating will also help contribute to curb appeal, and families who are concerned with the resale value of their home should consider sealcoating to keep their asphalt driveway looking its best.
How Often Should Sealcoat Be Applied?
In general, it’s shouldn’t be necessary to sealcoat your driveway every year. An asphalt driveway that experiences normal wear and tear should be professionally sealed once every 2-3 years, or when it appears “dry” and faded.
It’s very important to note that sealcoating is a cosmetic product that acts as a protective barrier to extend the life of your asphalt. Liquid sealcoat is not meant to fill or repair cracks. Patching imperfections and filling cracks needs to be done prior to sealcoating.

Professional Sealcoating Services
While many DIY enthusiasts will attempt the sealing process on their own, we encourage homeowners to have their asphalt driveway professionally sealed. Not only do our trusted and experienced repair and maintenance crews use the highest quality industrial grade sealcoat, but our product is formulated specifically for the climate and weather conditions that our customers are accustomed to.
Our crews use state-of-the-art equipment, and take great care to make certain your asphalt driveway is well-prepped and ready to accept the sealcoat. While we always try to arrange the project around our your busy schedule, we’re also careful to consider the local weather and how it might effect the sealcoat application and curing process. In most cases, homeowners will only have to wait 24 hours before allowing vehicle traffic back on their driveway.
