What is Sealcoating?

Sealcoating is a treatment placed on the surface of asphalt to prevent water from penetrating the surface of the pavement and protecting the top layer of asphalt from oxidation and wear caused by exposure to the sun and air.

Provided the asphalt base is in good condition, the right sealcoating job will help protect asphalt from further deterioration and can add years of life to most any asphalt surface. A quality sealcoating job will greatly improve the overall aesthetics of pavement which exhibits signs of normal wear and tear.

Sealcoat will also beautify the pavement by providing a smooth, black, even surface ideal for painting lines and sweeping.

Sealcoat is different from slurry seal which uses a much coarser aggregate filler and is designed for use on high speed areas with straight rolling traffic.
