Asphalt sealcoating is the key to a successful pavement maintenance program. It protects against damaging water penetration and surface oxidation, as well as deterioration caused by gasoline and oil. Sealcoating restores that “New Black Finish” look. Proper sealcoating will easily double the life of your asphalt pavement.
The best way to prolong the life of your asphalt from the harsh Chicago elements is to apply a sealer on a regular basis. Sealcoating every two to three years will help prevent surface deterioration.
The sooner asphalt is sealed after its initial installation the better. New asphalt should be sealed six months to a year from the date of installation. This gives the asphalt time to cure but seals in the oils and tars that give asphalt the flexibility to withstand traffic and the elements.
Proper prep work is the key. Asphalt crack sealing, asphalt patching, and parking lot striping all go together. No sealer is a substitute for major asphalt repairs, and sealer will not adhere to dirty or oily surfaces. Done-Rite Inc. makes sure that the asphalt is properly cleaned and repaired and any cracks are sealed done prior to application.
Advantages of Asphalt Sealcoating:
- Prevents oxidation. Forms a tough protective coating.
- Stops weather damage by sealing the porous asphalt surface and preventing water penetration.
- Resists gas, oil and salts. Seals and protects against deteriorating effects.
- Beautifies and restores appearance to that like-new finish. Enhances overall appearance of the property. The smooth even surface makes sweeping, snow removal and maintenance easier and less costly.
