Sealcoating is a process where we apply a top-layer of refined tar emulsion sealer for extra protection from water, chemical, oil and sunlight damage. Because asphalt pavement offers poor resistance to UV rays and sunlight, it begins to deteriorate as a result of oxidation. Oxidation speeds up the aging of asphalt and causes pavement to become brittle and more susceptible to cracking. Sealcoating protects the asphalt surface by slowing oxidation and filling the hairline cracks that eventually can become entryways for water.
While sealcoating will not prevent damage to pavement it can slow down the degradation. Sealcoating also provides a rich black color to an older, oxidized parking lot and can greatly improve curb appeal.
