A newly paved driveway can add tremendous value to your home, not to mention curb appeal. With time, however, the jet-black color of asphalt can fade and pavement can begin to crack and show signs of wear. Once these blemishes begin to show up, whether on your driveway or elsewhere, your asphalt and pavement become prone to many other problems that can be expensive and difficult to fix. This is especially true in the sometimes harsh weather conditions of South Dakota. Asphalt and pavement sealcoating can help to protect your investment and is a necessary part of the maintenance of your paved surfaces.
How Asphalt Sealcoating Works
Sealcoating protects your asphalt by helping to keep oils and plasticizers locked in. These necessary elements of asphalt are what keeps your asphalt flexible and resistant to cracks. Sealcoating helps to form a protective barrier, or seal as the name suggests, that keeps damage caused by the elements out.
Damage to asphalt and pavement is unavoidable, and maintenance – including sealcoating – is an important part of the regular upkeep of your paved surfaces, whether residential or commercial. In fact, a study by the Pavement Coatings Technology Center at the University of Nevada at Reno has shown that maintaining a commercial parking lot with sealcoating every three years can even save you an average of $152,000!
