What is Sealcoating? Facts to Know

If you live in an area with extreme weather temperatures, such as the New Jersey – Pennsylvania area, your asphalt driveways, parking lots, walkways and roads need to be maintained. Without proper maintenance, the weather and the weight of vehicles during the freeze/ thaw cycle makes asphalt expand and contract, which causing cracks and pot holes. Cracking allows water to penetrate the surface, continuing deterioration. Not to mention the hazardous pedestrian traffic areas, which could present a liability to you as the owner of the property. Sealcoating should be a part of your home or business’ preventative maintenance program.

What you probably don’t know about sealcoating!


  • effectively enhances the melting process of ice and snow on your pavement surfaces. Spend less time worrying about potential slip and fall accidents.
  • protects and prolongs the life expectancy of asphalt pavement by filling surface damage and providing a protective layer to keep out damaging oil and vehicle fluids, water and the sun’s UV rays.
  • saves you time and money in the long run, because when your driveway or parking lot are properly maintained and sealed, it will extend its lifetime and reduce long-term repair costs.
  • will enhance the appearance making it appear and wear like new, because exposure to UV rays and oxidation causes the asphalt pavement to fade.
  • we recommend that the air and pavement temperature be at least 50 degrees during and for 8 hours following the sealcoating application to ensure a proper sealcoating process.
