Driveway sealing is an easy and cost effective way to help protect and prolong the life of your driveway. Asphalt surfaces are susceptible to the effects of sun, water, oxidation or chemical reactions due to oil and gas spills and salt and surface deicers. Driveway sealing at regular intervals gives your driveway the added protection it needs to last longer and resist deterioration.
Sealing your driveway has many benefits when it comes to preserving the asphalt. First and foremost, a properly applied driveway sealer repels water, perhaps the single most harmful agent when it comes to deteriorating asphalt surfaces. Asphalt has a natural tendency to crack if water is allowed to permeate it. Once those cracks appear, water further damages it, especially in cold climates where it expands and contracts with freezing temperatures.
Other enemies of your driveway include sunlight and oxygen, both of which hasten corrosion. By regularly applying a quality asphalt sealer to your driveway you can help to prevent water, sunlight, and air from permeating your asphalt and aid in preventing these problems. As an added benefit, driveway sealing also helps to repel oil spills and leaks and makes it much easier for you to sweep and clean your driveway surface.
Driveway sealing is an important aspect of asphalt driveway maintenance, however it’s not the only thing you need to keep up on. If your driveway has pre-existing cracks, potholes or other signs of wear, it is vital that you repair these problems before you apply a sealant. That being the case, your best bet is to contact a professional who will also evaluate your driveway for other maintenance needs that need to be addressed before a sealant is applied.
