The Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating

The Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating

We at Elizabeth Paving want your walkway, parking lot, or driveway to be as durable and attractive as possible. Therefore, we advise applying asphalt sealcoating every two to three years. In order for you to use your newly coated area as soon as possible, our experts work promptly and with the best materials available. Here are a few advantages of a high-quality sealcoating for asphalt:

Water harm

To prevent water damage, one of the key reasons to sealcoat your asphalt is to do so. A classic freeze-thaw cycle might be hazardous during the colder months. When it rains, water will seep into any gaps in your asphalt if there are any. The water in the cracks will freeze and grow as soon as the temperature drops and it becomes chilly. The water will melt throughout the day and then refreeze at night. The continual expansion of water throughout this cycle can exacerbate asphalt cracks and eventually cause damage that needs to be fixed.

You won’t have to be concerned about your paved area every time it rains, sleets, or snows because to the additional layer of protection that an asphalt sealcoating may offer.


Parking lots, driveways, and roads are where asphalt is utilized the most frequently. These places are vulnerable to spills due to their heavy traffic. Many liquids won’t have an immediate impact on the makeup of your asphalt, but some with chemical bases might. These can eat away at your asphalt and include things like oil, gas, grease, acetic acid, and more. To stop spills from permeating your paved area, Elizabeth Paving advises routine sealcoating of your asphalt. Additionally, sealcoating helps keep liquids from discoloring your space.


The appearance of recently placed asphalt is unmatched. When an installation is finished, the area will have a rich, deep color that gives it richness and enhances the surrounding region’s appearance. You may achieve the same aesthetic appeal with asphalt sealcoating (without all of the installation time). A rich, black sealcoating may do wonders for the appearance of your house or building.


In general, sealcoating your asphalt can help your paved area last longer. You can be sure you’re taking good care of your paved area when you engage a skilled paving company (like Elizabeth Paving) to apply an even coat of top-notch material. Sealcoating can lower long-term maintenance expenses and keep your driveway, parking lot, or pathway from needing to be resurfaced or replaced.
