Asphalt is susceptible to damage from a wide variety of sources. Some of the things that can break down asphalt are unavoidable, such as UV light from the sun and harsh weather. Other culprits can be accidental, like a gas spill or oil leaking from a vehicle.
Without a proper seal over your asphalt, these elements will break down the integrity of the surface over time. When it comes protecting your investment in a driveway, seal coating is the number one preventative maintenance task every homeowner needs. A driveway’s lifespan can double or triple if it is seal coated every year or two.
