Winter Is Coming – You Should Seal Coat and Crack Seal to Prepare

Comments Off on Winter Is Coming – You Should Seal Coat and Crack Seal to Prepare

Your asphalt surface goes through hundreds of hours of wear and tear of all sorts. Whether you’ve got issues from sodas being spilled on it or oil leaking from vehicles – you still want your asphalt surface to look its best. That’s where seal coating and crack sealing come in. A seal coat is a layer of material that is applied to a surface that has just been asphalted, whereas, crack sealing is the process where existing cracks are sealed using a polymer liquid.

Seal coating protects the asphalt from aging and collecting water in its pores. Water and other liquids can cause cracks in the asphalt when they freeze and expand. Even if you haven’t seal coated, you can still recover your lot by crack sealing, to prevent your cracks from getting worse. Winter is coming, and the rough weather can wreak havoc on your asphalt from the constant freezing/melting/refreezing of water. Using both of these methods in tandem can add years to your asphalt lot.
