Residential Asphalt Driveway Services
Sealcoat provides two essential benefits — surface preservation and aesthetic improvement. For the first 5 – 10 years of asphalt’s useable life, all that is required of a properly constructed asphalt section is replenishing the oxidized surface of the asphalt. When asphalt is exposed to sunlight and water, the oil component starts to break down. If left un-sealed, there is nothing to bond the aggregate together and the pavement slowly starts to separate. In fact, a newly constructed pavement surface can completely separate and fall apart from the top down in 10 – 15 years if left unsealed. Sealcoating every 2-4 years prevents this erosion and breakdown while providing a smooth, black surface that is visually appealing.
All cracks ¼ inch wide or wider must be sealed to prevent water infiltration and protect the life of the pavement. Small cracks (less than ¼ inch wide) are generally not sealed because the material will not penetrate the surface. A number of products are available for sealing cracks but the most well known and most cost-effective is hot-rubberized crack sealant. Cold-pour crack repair materials also are available but these are usually considered less robust and generally suited to lower traffic areas.
Patching & Pothole Repairs
A pothole is more than just an eyesore, it can pose a threat to motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians. Asphalt patching is a spot-treatment that can target even the smallest of problem areas. In order to get the most from your asphalt repair, we will determine the integrity of the existing asphalt and decide if it would do better with a hot asphalt overlay or if it is strong enough to be cut out, repaired and replaced.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Sealcoating affordable? Is it worth it?
YES and YES! Sealcoating and hot rubber crack sealing most average size driveways only costs between $150-$300. Which is much more affordable than having to spend $2k-$5k for a new asphalt driveway.

If we were in your shoes, what do we wish we knew about this trade?
