Sealcoating blacktop protects the surface from stains and the elements. Sealcoat also fills very small cracks in blacktop before they become large enough to need patching. In addition to protecting blacktop, sealcoat gives a clean, uniform appearance to areas of blacktop. Asphalt parking lots & driveways are an important portion of the property’s value. We provide our customers with a free periodic inspection of their parking surfaces and assist you in establishing schedules and budgets for necessary pavement service and repair. Our proven technique and quality sealcoat materials provides outstanding resistance to water seepage, petroleum spills, oxidation from the sun, and other damaging elements. Sealcoating ensures a positive first impression by enhancing the appearance of your property.
Cracks allow moisture penetration from rain, snow, salt, and ice which erode the base of your parking lot. As these harmful substances penetrate into the sub-base of the pavement, the cracks widen and eventually cause potholes. Crack sealing is truly the first-line of defense against the degradation and eventual failure of the pavement. Sealing these gaps effectively stops the seepage of harmful substances and prolongs the life of your pavement investment.
First, we clean all cracks with pressurized air. Vegetation and other impediments to crack sealing are cleared with a grazing wheel or, in cases of extreme vegetation, a Taffa torch. Cracks are sealed using hot-applied rubberized joint sealant that exceeds Federal specifications. A light aggregate material is finally added to the hot rubber to improve adhesion to the pavement surface
