Asphalt requires maintenance to increase its longevity. When asphalt is created there is a tar based glue that holds all of the aggregate together. Over time the oils in the tar will dry out from being baked in the sun. When that happens some of the aggregate will begin to break away, essentially eroding the driveway. This timeline of the glue drying out can be drastically extended by seal coating the driveway. Effectively the sealer will trap the oils in the driveway and create a barrier from the harsh weather conditions above in order to protect the driveway.
Some driveways even develop cracks due to underground water movement or heaving in the winter time. In those instances we offer a hot pour crack filler that can be installed into those cracks to prevent water penetration and ice from spreading the cracks any further.
Simlawn LLC also offers line striping for commercial properties in addition to seal coating and crack filling. Click here for a free estimate.
