Bituminous concrete or “asphalt” surfaces by nature are petroleum based and become brittle with age. Asphalt surfaces start out being flexible with a rich slate black color giving a impressive and effective solution to parking and driving problems. However, with the aging process the asphalt becomes frail with a surface color of a grayish white with cracks, holes and deteriorated areas throughout. The aging process can be substantially slowed down with proper preventative maintenance. Sealcoating is one process in which an application of a coal tar type of material is applied to restore and protect the asphalt surface from deterioration. Depending upon the existing state of your asphalt surface – we at G & G Sealcoating are able to offer different products and mix designs with additives and sand from several manufacturers to optimize the process of Sealcoating your property.
Restores Original Attractive Appearance:
Proper Sealcoating techniques will provide a jet-black finish and the rich appearance of a new parking lot. A finished job will enhance the decor and visibility of your property.
Seals and Weatherproofs Exposed Surfaces:
Sealcoat materials are designed to seal and protect asphalt surfaces against damaging forces such as the Sun’s ultraviolet rays, petroleum products, road salts, and most of all water.
Improves General Conditions:
Winter time effects of snow and ice are greatly diminished due to the pores of the asphalt being “sealed” which minimize ice bond with the surface. Also, parking lot areas and roadways that have been seal coated on a maintenance schedule are much easier to sweep clean from dirt and debris.
Saves Money Through Preventative Maintenance:
An effective maintenance program including Sealcoating will defer and many times eliminate the need for costly asphalt repairs due to neglect and destructive natural forces.
