The weather’s changing. Make sure your driveway or parking lot is protected. With fall just around the corner, now is the perfect time to be thinking about how to protect your pavement to ensure long-lasting results and save you money.  Ideally, sealcoating and any asphalt repair or maintenance such as filling cracks and potholes should be done in the driest possible conditions. Don’t procrastinate on that important project. Take advantage of the great weather while it lasts and look forward to a safer, worry-free and more beautiful asphalt surface this fall…

Did you know that over time exposed asphalt can deteriorate with constant exposure to weather and temperature extremes? In our northern climate, water, ice and even sunlight (UV rays) cause the gradual decay of asphalt binder (bitumen), causing that black rich new look of asphalt to turn to a greyer and more grainy looking surface texture. Constant freezing and thawing cycles cause moisture penetration, cracks and stripping. Exposure to the elements also impacts the structural integrity of your asphalt. So what’s the answer? Sealcoating offers the perfect solution to prolong the life of your pavement by creating a barrier against moisture and debris. Importantly, sealcoating and crack filling also reduces hazards for drivers and pedestrians. Unsealed asphalt is susceptible to cracks which, if left untreated, can lead to costly repairs of potholes or sub-layers. Don’t wait!
