While it is one of the most durable and long-lasting products out there, even asphalt can wear down over a period of years due to significant stress and exposure to both impact and the elements. This is particularly true for the surface areas of your asphalt, which can eventually turn gray and wear down in small ways over a period of years or even decades.
At Go Pave Utah, we can help with one of the primary solutions at your disposal for preventing or restoring this kind of issue in your asphalt: Sealing and coating (sometimes just called “sealcoating”) services. Here’s a quick primer on what asphalt sealing does for your surfaces, and how often you should be considering having it done.
The goals of asphalt sealing are to retain the beauty of your paved surfaces while saving you money on lasting products. We use several different kinds of specific seals combined with various materials, including scrubs, sand or chips of some kind. We pour a liquid onto the asphalt, then an aggregate that forces its way into the pavement. From here, a broom or roller is used to smooth the solution over the entire surface.
We also provide two other sealing formats:
Asphalt sealing can protect against all of the following risks to your surfaces:
Through these kinds of protections, asphalt sealing can benefit you in several distinct ways:
Sealants are known to extend the life of various asphalt surfaces by roughly three to six years in most cases, and this is roughly the recommendation for how often you should have this done as well. This may vary slightly depending on the stress on your surfaces and the elements they’ve faced.For more on asphalt sealing and how it benefits you, or to learn about any of our asphalt paving or repair services, speak to the pros at Go Pave Utah today.
