Q: Why should I sealcoat?
Over time, your pavement and asphalt begins to oxidize from exposure to natural elements. When your pavement becomes grayish, it becomes less flexible and can begin to crack. This causes the deterioration of your driveway or parking lot. Sealing restores the strong upper coat, and regular service will prolong the lifespan of your surfaces significantly.

Q: What is the price of sealcoating?
Rates are determined by square footage so that you get the most reasonable price possible for your service. When you request a FREE estimate, you will get a visit within 3-5 days to measure and evaluate your work. You will receive a written estimate at the end of the evaluation.

Q: How should I prepare for my sealcoating treatment?
Don’t fertilize your grounds for a week prior to the visit, because this will discolor the sealer product. Clear the area of all vehicles, toys, and debris, but do not hose it off. Your pavement must be dry.

Q: What should I do about grass growing in or along my asphalt?
Use a weed killer regularly to prevent grass from breaking the seal on your driveway or parking lot. Grass is capable of growing through asphalt and sealer.

Q: What time of year is best to seal my driveway?
Sealcoating is usually performed from April through October, depending on the temperature and weather. The temperature should be 65 degrees Fahrenheit and warming, because it should not go below 60 degrees during the curing process. Bad weather can also negatively impact your seal.

Q: How often should my driveway get sealcoated?
There are many variables that can affect your seal, such as strength of the original pavement, quality of the seal process and materials, and amount of use your pavement gets. Sealcoating is recommended once a year for the first 2 years of your driveway’s life, then after that we recommend a sealcoat every 2-3 years.

Q: What should I do if my driveway has large cracks or holes?
Sealing is not intended to repair large cracks and holes. If you need crack filling services, we can apply high-quality rubberized filling before your driveway is sealed. Over time you may notice the filling settling into place or remaining soft; this is normal.

Q: How long does it take for my newly-coated pavement to dry?
In most cases, you can drive and walk on sealed pavement after 24 hours. If this is your first time sealing your driveway, you should wait 48 hours. Temperatures below 80 degrees Fahrenheit or humidity above 50% can add up to 12 hours to your drying time.

Q: What about oil stains?
Oil stains can show even through your new seal. If you have an oil stain you want treated, we can apply an oil spot primer. That will be brushed in to prevent the oil from “bleeding through”. Unfortunately, not all stains can be completely removed.

Q: Is the sealer safe?
Your seal is water-based, so it usually does not cause skin irritation. However, anyone with sensitive skin or a latex allergy should avoid contact with it. If a child or pet touches the sealer while it is wet, rinse the area immediately with water.

Q: Will sealcoating prolong the life of old, cracked pavement?
No. This is a common misconception. Sealcoating pavement that is at the end of its lifecycle will have little to no effect. Water will continue to enter the base layer and the cracks will remain.

Q: Will snowplows damage the sealcoated surface?
Snowplows are capable of scratching the surface. Be sure to communicate with the plow contractor to make sure your service does not endanger your sealed surface.
