Residential Sealing

  •  The purpose of asphalt sealcoating is to protect the asphalt pavement and to beautify at the same time.

  • Sealcoating will provide a layer of protection blocking out harmful intrusions such as water, oils, and U.V. damage. 

  • A regularly scheduled sealcoating program will more than double the life of the asphalt, saving you significant dollars down the line.

  • New asphalt surfaces should be sealed 6 months to 1 year after installation and every 2-3 years after the initial sealing.

Common Customer Questions

The steps of sealing a driveway

 1.

We start by trimming the vegetation along the edges of the asphalt to ensure full coverage of the sealer.

 3.

The next step is to fill any large structural cracks (typically 1/4" and wider) with a trowel grade crack filler.

 2.

We then clean the surface free of dirt and debris using stiff street brooms and leaf blowers.

 4.

Now that the driveway is prepped, we brush a coat of our sealer over the surface of the driveway.

  • When should I take my car off the driveway?

Answer- You should have your car off before we get there. If it's already off your driveway, we can get started right away then. Also make sure to have your car parked 50 feet away from the driveway so that we can get our truck and equipment close to the driveway. 

Answer- Between 1 and 2 hours, but larger driveways may take several hours.

Answer- Between 24 and 48 hours.
