Why Autumn is the Best Time to Seal Coat Your Driveway

Why Autumn is the Best Time to Seal Coat Your Driveway

There are a number of benefits to seal coat your driveway or parking lot and if you are wondering when you should do it, or have it done; below are some reasons why the fall is a great time.

  • Sealcoating is not necessarily a job that should be undertaken in every season. Sealcoating should be done when there hasn’t been a heavy rain in at least 24 hours and temperatures above 500f.
  • The fall months are one of the ideal times because it allows you to protect your driveway or parking lot prior to the winter and snowy months.
  • Sealcoating extends the life of your pavement.
  • Prevents costly repairs.
  • By adding a protective layer, over your driveway or parking lot, it will protect it from the elements which can cause cracks and potholes.
  • Prevents water damage and the freeze-thaw cycle from destroying your parking lot or driveway.
  • Blocks UV sun rays from drying out the asphalt and making it susceptible to cracks and pits.
  • Prevents damage from automotive fluids and stains. Leaking oil and gas dissolves into the asphalt, softening the surface and eventually causing cracks.
  • With a sealcoated driveway or parking lot you can easily clean up the spills.
  • Esthetically pleasing, seal coating keeps asphalt looking great.
