Asphalt is meant to be durable and versatile, but unfortunately, deterioration starts soon after installation. Lubricants, fuel, and environmental factors contribute to dissolving it more quickly. Asphalt should have a lifespan of about 25 years, but this would be in an ideal environment with proper maintenance. However, our harsh winters and the extreme heat in the summer have wreaked havoc on our asphalt surfaces. If your parking lot or driveway is starting to show severe signs of age, it may be time for a new installation. Here are some visible signs:
Sealcoating will give your driveway or parking lot a rich, uniform color. It will add to the beauty of your home or business and protect the surface against heat, water, ice, cold, salt and oils, ensuring a longer life for your asphalt.

Q. Why should I sealcoat my asphalt driveway?
A. Many homeowners have no idea how badly water can damage the looks of their driveway. Normally when snow, frost, water or rain touches your driveway, it causes washing away of the particles thereby making it prone to cracks.
Sealcoating seals your pavement and prevents oxidation and its degradation. It accelerates the melting of snow or frost preventing it from penetrating into the base of the pavement. In a cracked pavement, sealcoating has the ability to cover the cracks and hinder water from penetrating.
