Driveway Sealcoating

We know from dealing with homeowners in the past that investing in seal coating now rather than in costly asphalt repairs will save you money in the long term.

Using a blacktop sealer, you can keep your driveway dry in all kinds of weather.

Sealcoating extends the life of your asphalt and reduces the frequency of repairs, and enhances your home’s appearance.  Your driveway will retain its original black color thanks to the asphalt sealer.

Sealing asphalt driveways preserves the surface by:

  • Keeping asphalt from deteriorating by retaining moisture content.
  • Anti-UV rays that cause asphalt to fade.
  • Solid defense against the asphalt-softening fluids of automobiles.
  • Restoring asphalt to its original deep black hue.
  • Filling in spaces to make the pavement more uniform in appearance.

What Temperatures are Needed for Seal Coating?

Ground and air temperatures must be above 50 degrees for the finest driveway sealant to be applied. Asphalt seal coating works best in warm, bright conditions since the curing period is reduced.

If it’s chilly and gloomy when you need a driveway sealer installed, check the forecast before hiring an asphalt company.

What Months Are Best for Asphalt Sealcoating?

Asphalt seal coating is most effective between May through September. Keep in mind that if we have exceptionally mild spring or early autumn weather, there may be possibilities to seal coats outside of these months.

Temperatures affect how long we can provide seal coating services.

Michigan has a short seal coating season compared to southern places like Florida, so you’ll want to contact our driveway pavers as soon as feasible. Asphalt seal coating will be in great demand when the snow thaws.

After seal coating, how long does it take for a driveway to cure?

Your driveway may cure in as little as five hours if we apply a seal coat daily with low humidity.

Waiting at least 24 hours before allowing cars to drive and park in your driveway is generally safe.

Does Sealant Fill Cracks?

No. To begin with, crack and pothole repair is a must before seal coating can be applied. Sealcoating is a preventative measure, not a cure for harm.

Infrared asphalt repair allows us to complete a seal coating job in one day when other businesses might postpone seal coating if they discover driveway cracks.
