What Is Sealcoating?

Sealcoating creates a protective seal over asphalt and concrete surfaces, helping to prevent damage caused by water, climate conditions, oxidation, and more. Sealcoating is a valuable tool that helps property owners rejuvenate their asphalt and refresh the aesthetics of the surface. If you want to bring your paved surfaces back to life, don’t hesitate to reach out and learn more about our sealcoating surfaces.

How Frequently Is Sealcoating Required?

The recommended frequency of sealcoating services depends on three factors:

The pavement’s condition and age

How frequently the pavement is used

Local weather and climate conditions

Reactive vs. Proactive Maintenance

Reactive Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is always superior to reactive maintenance, here’s why:

Preventative Maintenance

Rather than waiting to respond to a problem after it’s already happened, preventative maintenance can keep problems from happening at all. In addition to saving time and money, property owners can benefit from preventative maintenance because:

The Process

Sealcoating helps to reduce repairs and replacement costs and maximize the lifespan of your pavement. There are steps we follow every time we perform a sealcoating service.


We remove debris and other obstructions from the surface and clean it to ensure the sealcoat material adheres correctly. We also repair any damaged areas.

Edge and Tape

We use tape and other tools to seal off any areas that don’t need sealcoat treatment.

Apply the Sealcoat

Depending on the type and size of your pavement, we’ll apply a cool-tar-based or asphalt-based sealcoat using a spray or squeegee system.

Coat Application

To ensure proper adhesion and a smooth surface, we apply a sealant layer on top of the sealcoat material.

Dry and Cure

We allow the sealcoat to dry and cure for 12 to 36 hours.

Striping and Markings

We apply new lane markings, parking lines, and more once the curing period is over.
