Asphalt can last up to 20 years. But keeping the nice black, shiny appearance of your asphalt requires regular maintenance — and a big part of that maintenance is asphalt sealcoating.
Sealcoating is a way to prevent the erosion and oxidation of your asphalt. This option is only available when the top layer is in decent condition. Contact us for a complimentary assessment to determine if sealcoating is right for you.
The Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating
Sealcoating increases the lifespan of your asphalt. Instead of having to pay for a completely new installation a few years after installing asphalt, a regular sealcoating will keep your paved asphalt surface in great working order.
Texas heat has a way of oxidizing asphalt to an unattractive grey color. Sealcoating prevents the greying effect by protecting your asphalt from UV damage, water deterioration along with motor oil, battery acid and other chemical spills.
What to Expect
Sealcoating is a very straight forward process. We can typically complete the job in less than an hour. This of course depends on the square footage affected.
- After one hour, you can walk on it (although you’ll still want to be careful for a while).
- Wait 48 hours after sealcoating before you drive on it. Skid marks from your tires are normal. This will go away after it has completely cured.
- If you have to make sharp turns to maneuver in and out of your parking space, wait 72 hours.
- The cost is minimal and we would be happy to return periodically for a check up.
Beware of Unlicensed Contractors
Do your research before you hire a company to do your sealcoat. There are a lot of contractors masquerading as legit professionals when they don’t have the credentials.
Asphalt installations and repairs require a license in the state of Texas for a reason. The state demands accountability, consistent standards and citizen protection.
