It is the process of applying a protective black coating to asphalt in order to preserve its integrity. Sealcoating is not a one-time structural repair. It should be done every two to three years.
The major factors that affect how the sealer wears is traffic flow, UV ray, water erosion, exposure, freezing temperatures and other winter weather conditions.
Thick coats don’t cure evenly, are prone to tracking and leads to surface cracks. A thicker coat takes longer to cure, which leads to degradation and will reduce the life of your sealcoating project.

Sealcoating doesn’t improve the pavement structure in any way. It is a preventive, maintenance process, not construction.
Sealcoating doesn’t fix damaged pavement or pavement defects. Once an asphalt pavement reaches a certain stage of deterioration,
sealcoating is a waste of money. It will make damaged pavement look better for a short time but the damage will continue to expand, causing additional pavement failure. At some point the pavement needs to be repaired before being sealcoated.
Sealcoating doesn’t level depressions or uneven pavement. It should always be applied in thin coats.
Sealcoating doesn’t restore flexibility to the pavement.
