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.
As the area begins to thaw out, we turn our attention away from snow, ice, shoveling the sidewalks and scraping our cars to spending more time outdoors without heavy coats, gloves and boots. It might not be quite time to shed those layers yet, but one thing that we can begin to think about is what things will look like without all of the snow around. Green grass, flowers in bloom and warmer temperatures are very appealing, but there are other issues that may be revealed when the snow melts. Seal King fields so many calls in the early spring about new potholes, cracks and damage to asphalt and sidewalks.
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.

You might be surprised to learn that it is not necessarily the harsh cold temperatures that can negatively impact your asphalt surface. It is the freeze-thaw cycle that happens continuously all winter long. When ice and snow begin to melt, it creates pooling water on asphalt surfaces, which can compromise the integrity of the surface. Expanding water in small potholes and cracks can increase pressure, creating cracks and can cause further damage to your asphalt
