Seal coating is a process that helps to provide a barrier for the surface of the asphalt. This barrier stops water, ultraviolet radiation, oil, gas, salt, and other chemicals from getting into the asphalt. The process also helps the asphalt have an attractive surface.
An asphalt seal is usually composed of water, oil, and slate. When the sealcoat is applied, the water evaporates and only leaves behind a dark black sealant. The new surface covers all the asphalt and gives the pavement a new and fresher look. This sealcoat provides your home or business with a positive and professional image.
Seal coating also helps homeowners and business owners save money because it minimizes wear and tear. The seal protects the surface against damage from weather like the rain, sun, and other destructive elements. In fact, once a homeowner or business owner uses the sealed asphalt, he or she conducts repair and maintenance services less often as compared to those who installed plain asphalt. A plain asphalt pavement is also more expensive to maintain as compared to maintaining a sealed one.
