  • What is sealcoat?
    Simply put, sealcoat is a mixture of liquids and small particle solids (like grains of sand) that provide protective and restorative qualities for asphalt pavements. It's usually made up of varying amounts of dissolved asphalt, mineral fillers, and water, and is applied as a spray or with a squeegee or broom.
  • What is the purpose of sealcoating.
    Sealcoating fills surface voids, which reduces exposure to oxygen and UV rays and reduces the depth to which oil or gas can penetrate the asphalt. It acts as a waterproofing agent, minimizing the rate at which water enters the asphalt of your driveway or parking lot.
  • Does sealcoating really work?
    Sealcoating helps protect the underlying pavement from air, sunlight, salts, and petroleum products. It also prevents water from turning hairline cracks into bigger ones. The aggregate in the mix enhances traction, acts as a wear layer, and fills small cracks. Also, sealcoating gives the driveway a uniform black color.
  • What are the benefits of sealcoating.
    By regularly applying a quality driveway sealer to your concrete you can prevent water, sunlight, and air from permeating your asphalt and prevent these problems. As an added benefit, driveway sealing also repels oil spills and leaks and makes it much easier for you to sweep and clean your driveway surface.
  • How long after you seal a driveway can you drive on it?
    Depending on the temperature and humidity of the air, you should keep vehicles off the new surface for 48 to 72 hours. You may walk on your driveway within 24 hours.

Sealcoating, when properly done, effectively protects the integrity of your asphalt for years to come. Asphalt is made from sand and petroleum products. The extreme swings in our New Jersey weather works to beat down our asphalt driving areas.
