alcoating an asphalt surface is recommended every 2-3 years to maintain the functionality as well as appearance. The first sealcoating is suggested after curing for 9-12 months.
The surface is porous and will remain soft until properly cured. Our expert asphalt sealcoating contractor will determine if enough time has passed to allow the surface to harden and that the surface is ready for sealcoating.
The benefits of asphalt sealcoating are to extend the life of the driveway or parking lot. Asphalt is affected by chemicals such as gasoline, anti-freeze, oil and road salts. Sealing the surface prevents these substances from penetrating and breaking down the asphalt.
