If you’ve already spent the money on asphalt paving for your Murfreesboro home, you should know that sealcoating is how you maintain your investment. Today, we will look at a few top things you should know about the process so you can better plan for how you’ll treat and maintain your home’s exterior. 

Sealcoating Saves You Money.

The sealcoating process extends the life expectancy of your asphalt or aggregate surface. It does this by adding a thin layer of a specially formulated filler to cracks and also a protective layer over the entire surface. This protective coating reduces damage caused by water, fluid leakage from vehicles, and ultraviolet rays.

Sealcoating Protects Your Asphalt Paving Investment.

Chances are, part of the reason that you had your driveway paved in the first place was for appearances and to ensure that your home was consistent with others in your neighborhood. Regular sealcoating will ensure that your driveway looks like new for much longer.

Sealcoating Makes Ice And Snow Melt Faster.

Another way that sealcoating protects your asphalt paving investment is that it helps to melt snow and ice. This can reduce potential damage caused during the cold winter months as ice freezes, melts, and re-freezes, which creates a damaging cycle of expansion and reduction.

Fall And Spring Are The Best Time For Asphalt Paving And Sealcoating.

Summer in Middle Tennessee easily reaches temperatures of 100°. But fall and spring tend to have cooler and less human temperatures. Asphalt and sealcoating work best when the weather is 55° or warmer but still cool enough so that workers are not exposed to the dangers of excessive heat. If you choose paving or sealcoating in the spring, rain may delay the process.

Driveways Must Be Repaired Before Sealcoating.

If you’re planning to have your driveway sealcoated this fall, there are a few ways to prepare ahead of time. First, it must be clean and clear of all dirt, debris, and loose gravel. If possible, you should also remove oil and other vehicle fluids that have leaked out over time. Further, you may need asphalt paving for potholes and thick cracks.
