Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating

Asphalt sealcoating has many benefits for your driveway, parking lot, walkways, and other various pavements. It’s more of preventive maintenance that keeps it looking safe and prevents it from damage, similar to how you use paint to protect the wood from deteriorating. Sealcoating will seal those tiny cracks to prevent it from turning into larger cracks that can seriously damage the asphalt. When you apply a fresh sealcoating, the faded color of your asphalt will turn dark again, making it look brand new. Here are more benefits that you can gain:

Can Extend the Asphalt’s Lifespan

Because it’s always exposed to the elements, damage more quickly than concrete, and because of constant traffic, asphalt typically has a short or limited lifespan. Properly sealcoating asphalt will significantly lengthen its lifespan. This means that your driveway, parking lots, roads, will last much longer when it’s routinely sealcoated since this will prevent any damage that naturally would accrue over time.

Can Preserve the Dark Color

Faded asphalt is a common occurrence. This is because it’s constantly exposed to the sun and everyday traffic. Although keeping this kind of aesthetic isn’t so important for roads, most people want to keep the color fresh to make their residence look great. And sealcoating will help maintain that black color of the asphalt. So no matter how old your asphalt is, it will still look like it’s new instead of a dilapidated one.

Can Protect From Moisture

Water can damage a lot of things, asphalt included. This is especially where places are normally cold. When water seeps through the asphalt, freezing weather will cause it to expand and ice which will then cause the road to crack, damaging its integrity. Routine sealcoating will protect it from any moisture damage.
