Why should I sealcoat my asphalt pavement?
Asphalt is a porous material, susceptible to oxidation from the sun and damage from chemicals such as gasoline, diesel fuel, oil and antifreeze. Asphalt pavement will also ravel away over time. Sealcoating not only makes your pavement look new, it protects it from oxidation and petroleum spills. Sealcoating should be done every 3 - 5 years depending on use. Sealcoating your pavement allows it to be cleaned easier because it is not pourse.
How thick is asphalt?
Asphalt is generally 2" thick, however it can be as thick as 4" depending on the weight of vehicles and truck traffic.
Can you pave in the winter?
Yes, however the outside temperature should be at least 50 degrees and rising. 1" overlays are not recommended because the material cools too quick before compaction.
