What Is Driveway Sealcoating?
Driveway sealcoating refers to the application of a “seal” or barrier between your asphalt driveway and the elements that cause damage. It helps to keep harmful elements out and beneficial elements in. Sealcoat is a liquid that your pavement contractor applies with one of a few different pieces of equipment.
Common Sealcoating Benefits
Sealcoating won’t add to the structural integrity of your driveway, but it will protect the pavement, which is the whole point. When elements such as rain, snow, sun and wind take their toll on your driveway, the pavement becomes hard and brittle and breaks apart. The sealcoat provides a waterproof barrier to keep the water out and prevent this type of damage from occurring. Sealcoating also improves the friction of the asphalt surface, which isn’t quite as important on a driveway as it is on a roadway, but it is still a factor.
Ideal Conditions for Applying a Driveway Sealcoat
Weather conditions have a profound effect on sealcoats, so it is important to have them applied on days when the weather is ideal. A good day for sealcoat application would be warm and sunny, with low humidity. When the weather is cooler and humid, the curing time of the sealcoat will be longer, which puts it at greater risk of damage.
Sealcoating during a rainy day never makes sense, so make sure your paving contractor is aware of this and schedules the application when the forecast is clear. It’s important to keep in mind that sealcoating is a maintenance procedure that works well for driveways with minimal to moderate cracking and other damage. It won’t fix any serious damage, but it will prevent damage from happening and make your driveway last longer.
