The arrival of spring, which has been eagerly expected and anticipated for a very long time, is drawing near. The temperature will continue to rise, the sun will be shining, and the snow will be melting, which will show… Oh No! Severe asphalt damage!
If your asphalt pavement did not have a thorough sealcoating and was not protected from the elements, it is highly possible that it will require maintenance after bearing the brunt of the winter season. The spring is the ideal time to assess the quality of your asphalt, as well as to take the necessary steps to repair, restore, and remedy any problems that have developed, and to give protection for the months that are to come.
Do you require some convincing? Here are three reasons why you should sealcoat your asphalt in the spring rather than at any other time of the year.
Make repairs to winter damage while also preparing for summer damage
Even though the ice, snow, and other factors that cause melting have the most negative impact on your sealer during the winter, the summer brings its own sealcoat problems that need to be identified. Cracks, fading, and other forms of unattractive damage and even depressions can occur with prolonged sun exposure and with the strong heat that occurs throughout the summer. Drainage can then be disturbed, leading to other property issues that need to be dealt with. By sealcoating in the spring, you may stay one step ahead of the competition and keep your sealcoating looking as gorgeous as the summer sun.
Your Sealcoating's Capability of Withstanding Wear and Tear
Because of the lower temperatures in the fall and winter, sealcoating does not cure as well during those seasons. The weather and temperature conditions in the late spring are ideal for a curing process that is both quicker and more effective, as well as producing results that are more aesthetically pleasing when sealcoating.
Your sealcoating will exhibit the most wear and tear throughout the winter, which is the season that causes the most damage overall. When the snow melts, it often shows corrosion, potholes, cracks, fading, and other symptoms of deterioration that diminish the safety and appearance of your complete paved surface. These problems can be avoided by keeping your paved surface in good repair.
If you apply a sealant to your asphalt driveway and then seal it off, you will be able to repair any tiny cracks that may be there and stop them from getting larger in the future. If you seal these cracks, you will not only prevent water from seeping into them and making them worse, but you will also prevent water from entering them in the first place. A driveway sealcoating made of asphalt can not only help smooth out any cracks or dips but can also give your driveway a stunningly gorgeous and rich appearance.
