Have you ever looked closely at your driveway? If it is several years old, and you look closely, you may notice discoloration, some small cracks in areas and a change in texture. It may look brittle, worn and even stained in spots. As untreated asphalt ages and is continually exposed to the elements (including sun, rain, snow, ice), it will begin to look weathered. The cracks can get larger and larger and become potholes that are unsafe for your vehicle to drive over and unsightly for your guests.
Now that the temperatures are finally warm enough for the snow to have melted and for us to be outside on a regular basis, we can see with our own eyes the damage caused by the harsh winter weather. You may notice that the siding on your house is damaged, you may want to get your roof checked for damage and you may find that your driveway or asphalt sidewalks have many more cracks and potholes than a few short months ago. Seal King is here to help. We can repair the damage done to your driveway, sidewalks, garage apron and other asphalt surfaces and then apply a high quality protective sealer that will help protect the area for years to come.
Sealcoating, crack filling and patching are three methods to maintain the longevity, health, and aesthetics of your parking lot. We preserve old houses by painting, caulking, and replacing old and rotted boards and help old cars run for many years by changing the oil and replacing engine parts. Asphalt surfaces are no different. They require the same attention and upkeep over time.
Sealcoating is useful as a barrier for your asphalt’s surface. Over time, sunlight hardens asphalt and breaks down the functional properties of the surface…
If you are the owner of a business with asphalt parking lots and sidewalks, you know that keeping these areas looking professional is a part of the job. Your business may not rely on those asphalt surfaces for production and making a profit, but they are an important part of the overall look and first impression for your clients. One easy way to keep these surfaces safe, smooth and functional and prevent costly damage is to consider professional sealcoating services.
You have many choices when it comes to hiring a professional sealcoating company to repair and protect the asphalt surfaces around your home or your business. You will see companies offering you the best possible price – sometimes even a deal that sounds just a little too good to be true. These companies tend to rush through their jobs, without paying attention to every detail and, as a result, the sealcoating job is sloppy and may not last. Seal King is different from these other companies. While we may not offer you the bottom of the barrel price, you will find that our prices are still very affordable, and you get a lot more for your money when you partner with us.
Have you noticed that your driveway has started to sink directly in front of your garage? This is a very common problem for a couple of potential reasons. It is possible that when your house was built, your footings were installed 48 inches below the surface and gravel was installed in that space. Over time, the gravel can settle and cause your driveway to sink down and separate from the garage. Another potential reason is that the seam between the garage door apron and the driveway was not sealed correctly
The end of winter is just a few weeks away, but given the weather we’ve been having, it already feels a bit like spring. It’s the time of year where our thoughts turn from winter property maintenance to springtime property improvements. And while you’re planting new flowers and putting up a new coat of paint, spare a thought for your driveway. After a harsh winter, you can help restore your property to its former glory through a process known as driveway sealcoating.
Sealcoating involves adding a thin layer of sealing liquid over a paved surface to protect against the damage caused by rain, snow, sunlight, and vehicle fluids. It won’t repair cracks in the driveway, but it will prevent future damage and extend the life of your asphalt. Other benefits include water and oil repellent, one of the biggest factors in driveway deterioration
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.
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.
