Residential Sealcoating and crackfilling
Whether you own a driveway or a parking lot, the original pavement investment is significant. So, anything Advanced Pavement Technologies can do to slow the rate of deterioration improves the life cycle of the pavement and helps prevent future costs for repairs and replacements.
Sealcoating – as part of a comprehensive pavement maintenance program – is one of the most important elements in extending pavement life. Sealcoating protects the asphalt from water penetration, oil, salt and the sun’s ultraviolet rays and provides a longer life of the asphalt pavement.
The most important reason to maintain and repair cracks is to prevent moisture from penetrating under the asphalt surface causing damage to your driveway. Water is the most destructive element of pavement, and crackfilling is the number one way to prevent water intrusion into asphalt surfaces. Effective crackfilling keeps water from entering and weakening the base or sub-base of the pavement. It helps preserve the asphalt adjacent to the cracks; prevents sand, stone, and dirt from making its way into open cracks causing stresses; and extends pavement life by minimizing crack growth. Proper attention to cracks prevents problems from spreading and doubles the life of the pavement. Pavement repair in early stages of deterioration pay big dividends later delaying costly resurfacing.
