Seal Coat and Crack Seal

Extending the life of your asphalt

Good asphalt portrays a good image for a home or business. Guests who visit an area that has been paved with asphalt can enjoy driving and parking their vehicle in a smooth and good looking driveway or parking lot.

The image of a good asphalt pavement helps to bring confidence to the client that the firm he or she is about to deal with is well organized and cares about its customers and its environment. In a home environment, asphalt paved streets provide a nice area for the kids to play sports such as skating. It also provides a nice area to park the vehicle.

Despite being helpful and providing a good surface for driving and parking vehicles, asphalt pavements are prone to damages.

The main causes of damaged asphalt pavements include the following:

Frequently asked questions

If you have questions about a project, please don’t hesitate to ask. Our team is happy to offer a free consultation to answer all your crack seal and seal coat questions.

How often does pavement need to be repaired?

Many factors contribute to the wear and tear on pavement including destructive elements such as wind, water, change in temperature and how often it is used. If pavement is treated with a seal coat it will go much longer before needing repairs. Seal coat prevents the elements from penetrating into the cracks of the pavement and causing cracking and breaking.

How is crack seal applied?

The rubberized asphalt is injected into the cracks using a pressurized nozzle that pushes it securely down into the crack. The special rubberized asphalt fills the cracks and expands and contracts with the temperature, a characteristic that prevents further damage even as the seasons change.

Can you repair our existing asphalt?

Yes, asphalt is fairly simple to repair. Using crack seal and/or seal coating is one of the methods we use to repair asphalt. Crack seal can extend the life of the asphalt for many years. Give us a call at 801-908-6622. We’re happy to answer your questions or give you an estimate.

Crack Sealing

As the seasons change, so does the temperature. In winter, the temperature levels are extremely low, and this causes the asphalt to contract inwards. When the summer arrives, the temperatures are usually high, and this forces the asphalt to expand.

As asphalt contracts and expands based on the season, they form cracks due to the continuous expansion and contraction. If the cracks are not taken care of in due time, they might keep widening and increasing, thus worsening the condition of the paved road.

Rubberized Asphalt

The most effective solution is using rubberized asphalt. This process involves filling all the cracks that facilitates expansion and contraction as the temperature changes with rubber asphalt.

Crack filling extends the life of the asphalt. The rubberized asphalt that fills the cracks can expand and contract with the temperature, a characteristic that prevents the formation of cracks effectively even as the seasons change. The rubberized asphalt is injected into the cracks using a pressurized nozzle that pushes it securely into the right place.

Seal Coating

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.
