Asphalt Maintenance – Commercial & Residential
All asphalt requires maintenance. Regular maintenance, including crack filling, sealcoating, and minor repair work, will prevent major costly repairs and premature replacement in the future.
Sealcoating is an important part of the asphalt maintenance process. Over time, asphalt is susceptible to oxidation from the sun and damage from water penetrating beneath it’s surface. Sealcoating not only makes your pavement look new, it protects it from oxidation as well as petroleum spills.
Sealcoating extends the life of your asphalt and protects your investment.
We recommend sealcoating any newly paved project within the first one to two years, and then every two to four years thereafter.
When sealcoating we begin by prepping the entire area by removing all dirt, debris, and vegetation. We then prime any oil spots and stains present on the driveway. A “Tarconite” Coal-Tar based sealer mixed with 5 pounds of sand per gallon (for traction) is then applied using a squeegee or spray method. When complete the service area is cordoned off with caution tape.
Crack sealing is also an important part of your asphalt maintenance. By sealing cracks you are preventing water from seeping into the asphalt sub-base. Any and all cracks should be sealed as soon as they are visible as water entering the sub-base can undermine the structure of the driveway.
When crack sealing we first clean all cracks of dirt, debris, and vegetation. A Crafco “Superflex” rubber is then heated to 400 degrees and squeegeed into the cracks. Larger cracks (2″-3″) are treated as an asphalt repair and filled first with hot asphalt mix and then sealed with the hot rubber.
If a project calls only for crack sealing, and the area will not be sealcoated ,we apply “Black Beauty” over the filled cracks to prevent tires from sticking to the rubber.
