In order for asphalt to hold up over the long term, it must be properly maintained. One of the important parts of maintaining asphalt is having it regularly sealed. Why is sealing so important. Sealing – also known as sealcoating – will protect the asphalt from sunlight, water, and other harmful elements. If asphalt is not properly sealed, it will crack and break much more easily. Not only does sealing help the asphalt last longer; it also helps it look better, giving it a distinct black shine. Here at Pickens Construction, we proudly offer residential, commercial and industrial asphalt sealing services.
When it comes to asphalt sealing, timing is everything. Sealing the asphalt too soon after it has been laid can actually be harmful. Sealing it too late can be even worse. And, of course, neglecting to have it sealed on a regular basis can greatly decrease the lifespan of the asphalt. Asphalt should be sealed within a year after it has been laid, but not within the first three months. This will give the asphalt enough time to dry and set. After the first year, asphalt will need to be resealed every two years, for best results.
When a sealing project needs done, it is best to contact the professionals. This is intense labor that requires sophisticated machinery and expert knowledge. Those who try to perform this task themselves will quickly find themselves in over their heads. Likewise, those who hire an inexperienced or unlicensed contractor will likely find that the job is not properly done.
