Asphalt Sealcoating Benefits and Why You Need It

It’s springtime and the temperatures are rising here in Arizona! Sunshine shining, outdoor picnics, swimming fun – there are so many fun things to do with the warmer weather but with the growing heat, asphalt paving can become damaged due to the UV rays from the sun. 

Businesses throughout the valley can benefit widely from making sure their parking lots are in top-notch shape for their current and potential customers. Asphalt sealcoating provides a useful protective barrier on roads, parking lots, driveways, and highways that can be efficacious for companies and municipalities throughout Arizona.

What Benefits Are There With Asphalt Sealcoating?
By sealcoating asphalt, it provides a surface layer of protection from many different elements that can damage asphalt in the long term and will ultimately extend the life of the asphalt paved roadways. Like many things, it’s easier and cost-effective to continue maintenance on asphalt and maintain the protective properties regularly rather than wait until cracks and damage begin showing themselves more clearly, as it will ultimately do over time. Waiting until this point can result in just asphalt sealcoating but also asphalt repair, depending on the severity of the damage. 

The process is rather simple and begins with spraying a thin layer over the pavement of a particularly formulated liquid that is then followed by a layer of gravel. Heavy-duty equipment, such as an asphalt roller is then used to roll over the mixture covering the entire length and width of the surface being worked on. This helps fill in the smaller cracks and also provides a nice glossy finish, leaving the pavement looking fresh and brand new.
