Sealcoating will give your driveway a brand-new look and improve the surface at the same time. Call a driveway sealcoating company to give you prices to have your driveway coated and ask for a paper or electronic quote. The quote should have the following:
- Preparation costs
- Labor expenses
- Material prices
You can compare the costs of a couple of different service providers easily and choose the company that works within your budget and your schedule. Here are some of the benefits of having the driveway sealed.
Before coating the driveway, the asphalt company may have to fill in some cracks and holes. This is one of the benefits of having an asphalt driveway; repairing minor imperfections can be done easily and efficiently.
Asphalt is one of the few materials that will adhere to itself when heated, so the flaws will be filled, and then a new top coating of asphalt could be applied if needed. If some areas need asphalt removed, ask the company if they will dispose of the old materials.
If a new layer of asphalt is not necessary, then just a top sealcoat will hide many flaws. Flaws like fading, stains, chips, and marks from weathering will be gone after the sealcoating. The driveway will then have a nice black finish and look new again.
Maintain the Surface
Protecting the driveway by applying sealcoating will help to preserve the driveway. This protectant will shield your driveway from:
- Salt and other de-icing chemicals
- Lawn treatment chemicals
This means you will have a smoother and more aesthetic driving surface for longer, and the asphalt will be protected against things that can cause damage over time.
When you are getting quotes from the asphalt sealcoating companies in your area, ask to see their business certification information. This is something they may include for you on the quote, but if not, you will want to ask for verification. You also want to verify that they have their own liability insurance to protect the staff that will be working on the driveway at your home.
Maintaining the exterior of your home and your driveway is important as a homeowner. Don't delay; compare prices and act fast. If your driveway is an eye sore, get quotes and get the surface sealcoated.
