Why Asphalt Sealcoating?

freshly striped asphalt roadway


Asphalt is made up of mineral aggregate bonded together by a tar binder to form a smooth surface. It is therefore vulnerable to a variety of environmental variables that could harm it or cause it to degrade, which could quickly render it useless to its owner. When asphalt is exposed to air, water, or even the UV portion of sunlight, the pace at which the binder degrades rises. The asphalt gets increasingly brittle as the binder degrades. This increases the effect of regular wear and tear on its surface. Asphalt’s pace of deterioration tends to accelerate up over time. This is because each crack and each missing chunk makes it even more vulnerable to the issues listed above.

It makes sense that the easiest and most obvious answer to the issue is to cover the asphalt with a fresh layer of sealcoating. Asphalt is prone to harm and deterioration when it is exposed to the weather. The sealcoating procedure creates a surface that is not only slip-resistant but also blocks out environmental variables.

Benefits Of Asphalt Sealcoating

Asphalt surfaces will often need to be repaired or replaced if they aren’t maintained. This is a costly and time-consuming process that should, within reason, be avoided as much as possible. Sealcoating helps prevent damage and deterioration resulting in a surface with a longer lifespan. Asphalt surfaces should expect considerable gains in their useful lifespans, which can increase by as much as 100%, when sealcoating is applied properly. Sealcoating is a routine maintenance expenditure. A routine fresh asphalt sealcoating means less need for asphalt surface replacement or repair. This allows small short-term expenditures for maintenance in exchange for substantial long-term savings.
