The main reason asphalt deteriorates over time is the fact that it is porous—made up of sand, slag, and rock with a petroleum-based adhesive. Water, harmful UV rays, petroleum spills, and heavy traffic are the major causes of asphalt erosion. Adding a barrier between the asphalt and the elements to prevent erosion only makes good business sense.

Sealcoat is a liquid applied to asphalt to seal the tiniest of cracks not visible to the naked eye. This process of sealcoating will prevent oxidation. It resists ultraviolet rays and resists gas & oil spills, making it easier to clean & maintain. Sealcoating is that barrier you are looking for. Applying sealcoat from day one is cost effective in the long run. Re-applying it over the years adds to the life of your asphalt.
Sealcoating is necessary in climates with harsh winters and lots of rain. With the amount of rain Vancouver, WA gets, there will likely be more running water going through its pores and cracks than dryer climates and during the winter months, the water settles and freezes, causing expansion and more erosion. Avoid costly repair bills. Start protecting your asphalt today.
Asphalt paving is a huge investment. Protect your investment with sealcoating. Initial sealcoating on asphalt, along with regular asphalt maintenance including continued applications of sealcoating, will extend the life of asphalt up to 30 years.
