Asphalt is an ideal material for paving driveways, parking lots, and other outdoor surfaces thanks to its durability and low maintenance requirements. However, even asphalt can suffer from wear and tear over time, particularly from exposure to the elements. That's where sealcoating comes in. For homeowners in Columbus, Ohio looking to protect their asphalt surfaces and extend their lifespan, sealcoating services from Brecks Paving can be a great investment.
WHAT IS ASPHALT SEALCOATING?
First, let's define what sealcoating is. Essentially, it's the process of applying a protective layer of coating over an asphalt surface. This coating is usually made from a mix of asphalt binders, fillers, and emulsions. The result is a surface that is more resistant to water, UV rays, and other environmental factors that can cause damage to asphalt over time. Sealcoating can also give your surface a more attractive appearance by restoring its color and smoothing out rough spots.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SEALCOAT?
Of course, sealcoating isn't just something you should do once and forget about. For maximum protection, it's recommended that you have your surfaces re-sealed every 2-3 years. This ensures that the protective layer remains intact and effective at warding off damage. At Brecks Paving, we can work with you to develop a schedule for sealcoating that fits your needs and budget.
