Why we use sealcoating to protect your property

Sealcoating is a process of applying a protective coating to asphalt pavement. This prevents damage from exposure to the elements and extends the life of the pavement. Here are the general steps involved in a typical sealcoating application:

  1. Cleaning the surface: The pavement surface needs to be cleaned thoroughly to ensure that the sealant will adhere properly. This involves removing any dirt, debris, and vegetation from the surface using a broom, blower, or power washer.
  2. Repairing cracks and potholes: Any cracks or potholes in the pavement need to be repaired before sealcoating. This involves filling the cracks and potholes with a patching material, such as asphalt patch or crack filler.
  3. Applying the sealant: Once the surface is clean and repairs are complete, the sealant is applied. This is typically done using a spray or squeegee application method. The sealant is a liquid mixture of coal tar pitch or asphalt emulsion, water, and other additives.
  4. Curing: The sealant needs time to cure before the pavement can be used again. The curing time will depend on the temperature and humidity of the environment, but it typically takes at least 24 hours.
