What is Seal Coating?

Seal coating, also known as asphalt sealing, is the process of applying a protective liquid coating to your asphalt driveway, parking lot, or other pavement. The main purpose of sealcoating is to protect the asphalt from the damaging effects of weather, oil spills, and normal wear and tear. It also gives the asphalt a fresh, black appearance.

Why is Seal Coating Your Asphalt Important?

Seal coating, also referred to as asphalt sealing or blacktop sealcoating, is an essential part of maintaining asphalt surfaces like driveways, parking lots, and roadways. Here are some of the top reasons why regularly seal coating your asphalt is so important:

Extends Lifespan

Sealcoating provides a protective barrier that prevents damage from UV rays, oxidation, gas and oil spills, freezing temperatures, and water penetration into the pavement. This prevents cracking, raveling, potholes, and deterioration, extending the lifespan of the asphalt 2-4 years on average.

Prevents Costly Repairs

 Catching pavement problems early with preventative sealcoating is much more affordable than allowing extensive damage to occur that requires deep repairs or full asphalt replacement. Sealcoating provides proactive protection.

Enhances Appearance

Sealcoating gives aged, faded asphalt a refreshed, uniform, deep black appearance that looks clean and professional. It covers up current blemishes for a more attractive surface.

Improves Safety

Sealcoating fills in minor cracks and creates better traction for tires, improving safety for both vehicles and pedestrians. Its protective barrier can also prevent future cracks and hazards from developing.

Saves Money

 At Central Texas Striping, our affordable asphalt sealcoating services cost a fraction of the price of repaving or pavement replacement. Protecting your investment through regular sealing coatings will save you money in the long run.

Allows for Easier Maintenance

Keeping asphalt sealed makes it easier to maintain on an ongoing basis by preventing surface buildup and allowing you to simply wash or sweep away debris as needed. Unsealed surfaces can become stained and damaged.

Reduce Liability

Sealcoating provides essential moisture protection that prevents dangerous potholes, cracks, and loose pavement. This reduces your risk of trip-and-fall incidents and other liability concerns.

Benefits of Seal Coating

There are many benefits to having your asphalt seal coated on a regular basis:

  • Protects against damage from UV rays, oxidation, gas/oil spills, and water penetration
  • Extends the life of your asphalt surface
  • Prevents cracking and raveling of pavement
  • Provides a new black finish that enhances the appearance

Seal coating is the process of applying a protective coating to asphalt surfaces like driveways, parking lots, and roadways. It helps protect the asphalt from UV damage, oxidation, gas spills, and water penetration that can lead to deterioration.

Getting your asphalt sealed on a regular basis (every 2-3 years) provides many benefits, including extending its lifespan, preventing cracks and raveling, enhancing its appearance with a fresh black finish, allowing for easier cleaning, and saving money compared to repaving.

When applied properly, seal coating can last 2-4 years on average. Harsh weather, high traffic, and poor drainage can decrease its lifespan. Proper maintenance like occasional resealing can extend its effectiveness.

The process involves cleaning the surface, repairing cracks, applying the sealcoat in 1-2 layers using specialty spray equipment, allowing proper curing time between coats, and protecting the area while drying.

It’s best to seal coat when temperatures are above 50°F consistently and there is minimal chance of rain. This allows the sealcoat to cure properly. Spring and fall are ideal times in many climates.

Seal coating usually dries within a few hours but takes 24-48 hours to fully cure. The area should be protected from traffic, rain, and frost during this time.

On average, seal coating costs $0.25-$0.30 per square foot. The total cost depends on the size of the area, additional repairs needed, and other factors. We offer free estimates.

Yes, you can apply new sealcoat over existing coatings, as long as the previous layer is in sound condition. Proper surface preparation is key.

Avoid driving on the sealed surface until fully cured. Sweep occasionally to keep free of debris. Reseal as needed to maintain protection. Immediately clean any gas/oil spills.

Sealcoat has a mild petroleum odor during application that dissipates once cured. It’s non-toxic when dry but we recommend staying off the surface until completely cured.
