Whether it’s a small driveway or an industrial parking lot, your asphalt will inevitably depreciate from age and constant wear and tear as the result of exposure to foot and vehicle traffic, precipitation, oxidation, chemical/oil spills, and more. Routinely sealing your asphalt is key to preserving your parking lot or driveway and extending its lifespan.
What is a sealcoat?
A sealcoat is a protective barrier, usually comprised of a mixture of asphalt, water, mineral fillers, and other additives, that is absorbed by the pores in the asphalt, keeping it flexible and preventing cracking.
At Baughman Magic Seal we use a mixture of Coaltar Sealer, 30% Water, 1% Latex Additive, 3 lbs sand per gallon. The sand provides increased traction and durability without being visible.
Why seal your asphalt?
Sealing your asphalt provides a wide range of benefits that every home owner or business owner will appreciate. A sealcoat:
• Keeps your pavement flexible to prevent cracking
• Protects against damage
• Seals small cracks before they can grow
• Creates a barrier to prevent water from penetrating the surface
• Improves aesthetic
• Reduces the need for more expensive repairs/replacement
• Makes it easier to clean and clear your pavement
The Best Maintenance Is Preventative Maintenance
Regularly sealing your asphalt can save you money in the long run by reducing your risk of large cracks, potholes, raveling, and erosion, especially in Western New York where a continuous freeze/thaw cycle threatens the integrity of your pavement.
