Seal coating is a process of applying a protective coating over an existing driveway or parking lot. Seal coating is the best way to prevent damage from weather conditions, gas oil spills, oxidation, and normal wear and tear.
It will prolong the life of asphalt protecting your investment. Everyday use plus weather conditions loosen up the top laver of asphalt leading to erosion. Moisture then penetrates the asphalt, breaking it up over time and causing cracks to occur, which will allow water to eventually break the asphalt. Seal coating helps prevent the moisture and water from penetrating the asphalt surface and gives the driveway a “jet black” finish. Seal coating will also prevent oxidation caused by the sun in Arizona. It is preventive, and will reduce the amount of maintenance needed but will need to be reapplied every 2-3 years. Seal coating preserves your investment by keeping your driveway looking new for years. Generally a driveway or parking lot will be usable 24-48 hours after being sealed.
