Sealcoating - Extend the Life of Your Pavement
For the best Sealcoating in Boise, ID call B2B!
Sealcoating is an effective treatment used to protect your asphalt paving investment from the damaging effects of water, sunlight and ultra violet (UV) rays. This maintenance procedure provides protection against deterioration, crumbling, and shrinking of the pavement. It enables resistance to elements that can weaken and soften asphalt.
As asphalt ages, the binder "glue" used to hold the sand and stone particles together begins to break down and ultimately, your asphalt deteriorates. Left untreated for extended periods of time, a condition known as raveling occurs where the asphalt takes on an extremely rough and porous textured appearance. The increased porosity traps dirt which makes the surface harder to clean, and also, it traps moisture which ultimately weakens the integrity of the asphalt.
Over time, and without proper maintenance, your asphalt parking lot or driveway continues to dry out. The asphalt loses flexibility, becomes brittle, and is more prone to cracking and stress damage resulting in alligatoring and potholes. Sealcoating provides the benefit of maintaining a more flexible surface with an increased resistance to raveling, cracking, and damage.
By maintaining your asphalt surface you effectively help double its life span. A small investment now can save thousands. When you implement sealcoating early on (It should be applied 1 year after initial asphalt construction.) and again every 2-5 years, along with routine asphalt repair, you help stop the most common causes of premature pavement failure extending the overall life of the pavement as you protect your investment.
- Key Benefits of Sealcoating:
- Prevents oxidation. Forms a tough protective coating.
- Stops weather damage. Seals the porous asphalt surface to prevent water penetration of rain, snow, and ice.
- Resists gas, engine oil, anti-freeze, and salts. Seals and protects from deteriorating elements.
- Beautifies and restores your asphalt surface to that like-new finish.
