It would be ideal if sealcoating a driveway or parking lot could be done regardless of the weather, but such is not the case. While the weather doesn’t have to be perfect, there are certain conditions that must be met for the sealcoating process to be as successful as possible.
Temperatures: For sealcoat applications to be effective, the outside air temperature should be at least 50oF or more for a period of at least 24-hours. This is to ensure that the ground temperatures are high enough to allow the
Seal King has been serving Minnesota and the surrounding states for more than 31 years. In that time, we have worked hard to set ourselves apart from our competitors and provide high quality service, affordable pricing and attention to detail. One huge reason that we have been so successful is because of the unique hot mix sealer that we use for our residential and commercial professional sealcoating jobs. We custom blend our sealer using the highest quality raw products, high performance additives, and blackening agents. We mix these ingredients together with our state-of-the-art tools including mixing equipment and pumps, to produce the perfect mix every time. One of the main differences about our process is that we heat the water that we add to the concentrated sealer to 110-130 degrees, which allows for a much better blend. No other company has a product like ours!
Now is the perfect time to have the asphalt around your property repaired. In addition to our well known residential and commercial sealcoating services, Seal King can also complete asphalt repair services for your parking lot, driveway or garage apron. When your asphalt begins to deteriorate, you will notice discoloration, small cracks (that will grow) and even potholes. This damage is caused by moisture and dirt getting underneath the asphalt over time
Seal King started out many years ago as a small, local business in Lakeville, Minnesota. We started out focusing on residential sealcoating services in 1991 and grew over the years to serve clients in Iowa and Wisconsin as well. In addition to residential sealcoating services, we also complete commercial projects, asphalt repair and garage apron repair. Our goal is to help protect the asphalt on your property from weathering, traffic and damage that can come from years of normal wear and tear. Sealcoating adds a layer of protection to your asphalt and can prevent cracks and holes that can develop.
As you look out your window at your driveway, you may be wondering how to protect your investment and maintain its appeal and durability. Sealcoating is a type of sealant used to protect asphalt pavements. In conjunction with crack repair, sealcoating keeps your driveway strong and intact when applied every two to three years. It serves as a protective barrier against the elements and vehicle traffic. Sealcoating also enhances the appearance of pavement with an even black finish. There are a few things to know about sealcoating before you start:
Sealcoating is not a one-time structural repair that can restore damaged asphalt. If your driveway has cracks or prior repairs, they will still be visible after sealcoating. While your driveway will be black after the application, sealcoating cannot “smooth out” rough areas or fill cracks larger than ¼” wide.
As we make our final plans for the summer, we start to look ahead to the fall which brings school for the kids, a more regular family routine and, of course, changes in temperatures. These changes to the weather mean that we will need to put extra blankets on our beds, turn on the heat inside our homes, wear jackets in the fall and eventually winter coats, hats and gloves. The asphalt on our property
Business owners are always trying to find ways to ensure that their businesses thrive. Those in downtown locations will spend money to dress up their windows to attract customers. The money that business owners spend on these efforts are seen as investments in their own success and longevity. Ideas that draw customers in must be matched by products and/or services that entice customers to make purchases. Very successful businesses also consider the attractiveness and safety of the areas connected to their physical business space
Seal King professional sealcoating is your best source for replacing your old, cracked, weather beaten, potholed driveway or parking lot with a smooth, clean, and welcoming surface. Our staff can transform a problematic parking surface with one that is not only more appealing to the eye, but which is also much safer. If your driveway or parking lot has cracks, fissures, and/or potholes, it is very easy to step wrong and turn an ankle. No homeowner wants the pain and inconvenience of injuring themselves in their own driveway, of course, and certainly no business owner wants such an accident happening in their parking lot. A driveway or parking surface restored by Seal King reduces the likelihood of injury. A surface coating with our high-quality professional sealer adds curb appeal to both homes and businesses.
One of the most common questions that we receive is whether sealcoating is a necessary service. If you live in the Upper Midwest, the answer is a definitive yes. The harsh weather wears down asphalt over time, causing discoloration, cracks, and even holes. This is caused by moisture getting underneath the surface. Sealcoating protects your asphalt from this moisture, from sunlight, and from excessive foot or car traffic over time. Seal King offers high quality professional sealcoating services for residential and commercial customers all over the Midwest. We can complete any necessary asphalt repairs and then apply the very best sealer on the market so that you get the most from your investment. After all…your driveway is one of the first things that a guest sees when they come to your home or business
Now that springtime is upon us, we face the inevitable April showers and the start of the rainy season. This means that asphalt driveways and parking lots will be drowned in a good bit of water over the coming months. Without a good sealant, this water could seep further down into the underlying foundation of the asphalt and create more cracks and/or potholes. Help to protect your asphalt investment by getting the surface seal coated. This sealant will provide excellent protection of the underlying asphalt from the excess water.
