Similar to staining your home to protect the wood, asphalt sealing protects your pavement and prolongs the life of your driveway. Sealing not only aesthetically enhances your driveway, but also protects the asphalt, prolonging the life of the driveway. Left untreated, asphalt pavement will deteriorate rapidly. The asphalt binder that holds pavement together begins to oxidize and weather soon after installation. Moisture penetrates the asphalt causing further damage and deterioration of the pavement. Asphalt based pavement sealant replenishes the binder that is lost through weathering and aging, and provides superior protection against environmental distress.
