Why Sealcoating Is More Than Just About Making Pavement Black Again

Why Sealcoating Is More Than Just About Making Pavement Black Again

Smooth, deep-black asphalt is something to be admired. After all, your pavement is the first thing visitors see when they drive up to your commercial property. Well-kept asphalt shows your consideration to detail and their safety. Sealcoating is extremely advantageous for protecting your pavement—and it’s a critical part of any maintenance program.

While it certainly boosts the curb appeal of your property, sealcoating’s main task is to preserve your pavement by limiting repair costs down the road (pun intended). A&A Paving has proudly served in Chicagoland for over 60 years, so we are the industry experts in the world of asphalt sealcoating and pavement maintenance.

Neglecting your pavement will inevitably cost you lots of money—dollars that could otherwise go towards something more beneficial for your business. Read on to learn about the benefits of sealcoating and why you should schedule an assessment now.

What is Sealcoating, and Why it’s Essential?

In its simplest terms, sealcoat is a mixture of liquids and aggregate particles, such as grains, stones, or sand, that provide restorative qualities for your asphalt pavement. This asphalt-like substance is applied as a spray or with a squeegee or brush.

Sealcoating helps protect your asphalt’s vulnerable surfaces by “sealing” or blocking out harmful elements: water, oils, and U.V. damage. You cannot stop natural elemental damage or the wear and tear of vehicles, but you can fight back! Additionally, sealcoating beautifies your property with a lustrous and slip-resistant finish.

You’ll be left with a strong and beautiful road surface.

Sealcoating Seals Your Investment

Sealcoating is an integral part of any pavement maintenance plan. Industry leaders agree on the value of applying sealcoat every 24-36 months. A routinely scheduled sealcoating can double the lifespan of your asphalt. This will save you a significant amount of money and time in the long run. Instead of having to put out thousands of dollars for new pavement, you’ll be spending pennies on the dollar in comparison by simply maintaining your asphalt—something every responsible property owner should do.

But sealcoating isn’t always the answer…
