The proper application of sealer will add years of life and new-like appearance to any good asphalt pavement. In addition, this protects the surface from rain, snow, sleet, frost, sunlight , oxidation, oil, gasoline, battery acid anti-freeze, road salt, and bituminous materials that erode bituminous paved surfaces.
Asphalt sealing is important preventative maintenance, and saves the owner much of year to year repair costs. Like most good maintenance practices , the regular sealing and protection of asphalt is economically sound. An owner can have a quality sealing job put down at small expense, and secure as much as 300% greater life on his asphalt surface. Such treatment is far less expensive than repair and re-surfacing work.

The sealer is hand applied by brush, squeegee and/or spray. Our sealer is a Tarconite sand mixed coal tar-commercial grade with an Armaflex grade darkening and hardening agent to assure the most durable product on the market.
We service both the smallest driveways and the largest parking lots.
We carefully apply sealer near garages and/or Belgium block borders using a brush or squeegee. This is called edging. It allows us to be very careful near all non asphalt services.
Newly paved asphalt surfaces should not be sealcoated until they have cured for at least 90 days however; we recommend going thru one winter season and then applying our sealcoat system.
Generally, sealer will dry enough to stand up to rain within just a couple of hours. If the sealer should get washed out by the rain, we will return and re-apply the sealer at no cost.
No, cutting out and removing existing damaged asphalt and replacing with new hot asphalt in the only way to fix problem areas.
This is a great question. Pavement sealer will not make the surface slippery if applied properly. We use a sand-slurry mix of pavement sealer. Silica sand is mixed into the sealer at a rate of 3-5 pounds per gallon of sealer depending on the quality of the sealer you use. Not all contractors use this type of mix, so be sure you find out if sand is mixed into their material. If sealer is applied without sand mixed into the sealer, then yes, your parking lot will be very slippery.
Yes, hairline cracks will be filled with sealer; however sealer will not fill large cracks in the pavement. Larger cracks should be filled with hot rubberized filler.
The sealing season in Connecticut runs from April thru October (depending on the weather). Late seasons mean shorter days and unreliable drying conditions; better to schedule earlier in the season.
To maximize the protective qualities of the sealer, we suggest sealing a minimum of every two (2) years. If your residential asphalt has never been sealed, we highly suggest sealing two years in a row and then follow an every other year maintenance plan.
We ask that you stay off the asphalt for forty-eight (48) hours, unless otherwise noted.
