Asphalt sealing provides an extra layer of protection for your driveway or parking lot. The extra layer is a barrier against water, oil, sunlight, and oxidation. We provide sealcoating to Richmond, VA, residents and the rest of the Richmond Metro Area.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
