Q: Why sealcoat an asphalt driveway?
A: Air, sunlight, and freezing causes asphalt to oxidize. This results in the asphalt becoming brittle with cracks forming. Gasoline & oil can literally eat away an unprotected driveway. Proper sealcoating prevents this from occurring.
Sealcoating has shown to slow down this process and extend the life of an asphalt driveway dramatically, saving you thousands of dollars in replacement costs.
If you live in a cold, snowy region the black color also tends to soak in the heat and melt off the snow faster, so re-sealing that fresh black look every few years will help save your back from shoveling snow. Sealcoating can also give your driveway a beautiful, new, rejuvenated look.
Q: How long do I need to stay off my driveway after I've had it sealcoated?
A: We recommend that you avoid driving on it for at least 24-48 hours (drying times vary based on outside temperatures and the amount of direct sunlight the driveway receives).
Q: What if it rains on my scheduled day?
A: We will give you a call as soon as we can to let you know that we will have to reschedule and in most cases will usually give you your rescheduled date when we call.
