Sealing Your Driveway Ensures It's Lifespan

Does your home have an asphalt driveway? How old is it? Does it look dark and black, or has it become worn and faded? Your driveway is one of the best ways to increase and maintain higher home value. An attractive driveway can add up to $10,000 worth of value to your home.  But, if it has become cracked and faded, it can instantly turn people off. Even if you’re not selling the house, it’s embarrassing to have a driveway that looks old and beaten up. We all want our driveway to last 20 – 30 years without any maintenance. But, just like any part of home maintenance age and exposure to the elements are going to occur. The driveway will endure rain, snow, freezing, and UV rays. This causes the binding agent to become brittle, and cracks will form over time. Luckily, regularly sealing your driveway can maintain it’s integrity and shiny black finish. On this page, we will talk about what can happen if you don’t regularly seal your driveway, and how our seal coating service can maintain your driveway for many years to come.

What Happens If You Don’t Regularly Seal Your Driveway

 If you don’t regularly seal your driveway, you leave yourself open to a bunch of problems. Here’s a few of the most prevalent.
Sealcoating Richmond, VA

Cracking & Pitting

Outside elements take their toll on your driveway's asphalt, the surface starts to crumble. In winter, the water that seeps into the crumbling surface expands and pushes the asphalt apart.

If you don't regularly sealcoat your driveway, weeds and grass can grow through the cracks.

Weed & Grass Growth

After the elements have produced cracks in the asphalt, grass and weeds will grow. These weeds make your driveway unattractive, but also push the existing cracks wider apart.

Surface Erosion & Unevenness

If the driveway isn't sealed on a regular basis wind, rain, and sun start to erode the surface. Your driveway will then become uneven and bumpy. The sinkholes that form aren't good for your vehicles.

Poor Curb Appeal

The first thing people notice when you don't sealcoat your driveway is your home's poor curb appeal. It will quickly become dull, gray, and cracked, reducing the value of your home.

Costly Repairs

Once your driveway begins to crack and crumble, it's only a matter of time before you need repairs, and the longer you wait, the more costly those repairs will be.

Oil and gas from your vehicle can damage the surface of your driveway. Sealcoating can create a barrier that protects the asphalt from oil.

Chemical Damage

If you park your vehicle in the same place and it leaks oil or gasoline on the driveway, those ugly stains can wear away the surface layer.

A Few More Facts About Sealcoating

  • Professional sealcoating provides a protective layer to the surface of your driveway. This layer keeps out UV rays, vehicle fluids, and water, ensuring your driveway lasts 20+ years without needing expensive repairs or replacement.
  • Regular sealcoating is a cheaper alternative to resurfacing and saves you money in the long run. When you regularly seal your driveway you won’t have to worry about expensive repairs in the future.
  • UV rays and exposure to the elements makes asphalt look faded and gray. Sealcoating the surface will restore its dark finish.
  • Sealcoating can be applied in two ways: sprays or squeegees.
  • When your driveway is sealcoated it will help snow and ice melt faster. This helps prevent water penetration.
  • We recommend the air and pavement be around 55 degrees Fahrenheit while we apply the sealcoat and for 8 hours after.
  • Before sealing a driveway, we will need to clear the asphalt surface of dirt and debris. It’s also imperative we complete minor repairs like filling cracks and small potholes.
