Asphalt Sealcoating - Numerous Benefits
Many homes and businesses choose asphalt over concrete paving due to cost. But asphalt’s cost advantages disappear if the pavement must be replaced prematurely due to inadequate maintenance. Woodford Seal Coat has extended the life of countless paved surfaces throughout the Versailles, KY area with our professional asphalt sealcoating service. We begin each asphalt sealcoating job the right way: by properly preparing the surface. This includes clearing away any grass overgrowth along the edges of your pavement and removing any dirt or debris from the pavement surface with stiff wire brushes. Our sealcoat installation includes hand application along pavement edges and near structures. We spray coat the remaining areas to produce professional results—giving you a pavement surface that looks great and stands up to the elements. Asphalt sealcoating provides numerous benefits. These include: • Appearance—New asphalt is dark black and asphalt sealcoating restores your pavement to a like-new color. A freshly coated asphalt driveway can dramatically boost your home’s “curb appeal”. The first thing a customer notices about a business is the condition of the parking lot and regular sealcoating enhances the image or your establishment. • Surface Flexibility—The dark black color delivered by sealcoating not only looks good, but also helps to extend pavement life. Black surfaces readily absorb heat from the sun making them more pliable and better able to hold up under vehicle traffic. • Surface Texture—Sealcoating provides a smooth surface that is easier to keep clean. Without surface irregularities, sweeping and snow removal are much easier. • Protection from Oil and Gas Leakage—Even small amounts of oil or gas repeatedly leaked in an area where vehicles park, will eventually break down asphalt. Sealcoating provides a barrier against oil or gas damage. • Extends Pavement Life—Sealcoating protects against exposure to three elements that shorten asphalt life—oxygen, ultraviolet rays and water. Prolonged exposure to oxygen tends to make asphalt brittle and prone to cracking. In a similar way, ultraviolet light breaks down the carbon bonds that give asphalt its texture. Cracked pavement permits water to penetrate and further accelerate the process of deterioration. Sealcoating repels water, seals out oxygen and reduces exposure to ultraviolet rays, all of which prolong the life of pavement. You get the most benefits from asphalt sealcoating when the job is done professionally.
