What Is Sealcoating And Asphalt Protection?
Protect the pavement on your driveway and walkway with this landscaping service. Sealcoating, or pavement sealing as it’s sometimes known as, is when a protective coating is applied to an asphalt-based pavement. This process will add protective layers to eliminate becoming damaged by elements such as U.V. rays, oils, and water. Sealcoating your pavement will ensure the longevity of your driveway, walkway, or even the back patio if it’s designed from asphalt.
How Is It Beneficial?
Besides protecting your asphalt from becoming damaged by oils, U.V. rays, and water, how is this landscaping service going to benefit your asphalt? It’s a great question to consider since you probably don’t want to throw money at meaningless projects. However, sealcoating your asphalt will save you money, add a protective layer, and create an anti-skid surface on the surface. By implementing this landscaping service, you’ll have an extended life on your pavement as well as eliminate friction on the asphalt to create a safer driveway, walkway, or pathway.
The Sealcoating Process
There are several different methods that can be used for sealcoating and asphalt protection, and each one that’s used will produce results that are beneficial for your pavement. The most common one has a simple process that will give you the results that you want to ensure your asphalt is protected. Before the process can be started, the asphalt needs to be cleaned because it could create a poor result for the adhesive if the leaves and other materials are removed from the surface. Once it’s cleaned, pavement sealers will be placed on the asphalt with a self-propelled squeegee machine or by hand.
Another common method is with a piece of pressurized spray equipment. It’s important that the consistency of the mix is maintained in the sealcoat to ensure every inch is protected. Two coats are generally necessary and it can take anywhere between 24 to 48 hours to be cured. During this time, you won’t want to drive on it. Lastly, once the surface protection is put on correctly, the mixed sealer will be applied to finish off the process.
