What is Asphalt Seal Coating?
Asphalt seal coat is a high-performance type of emulsion with a range of additives that are combined and designed to help provide protection to asphalt pavements from water, UV rays, and wear and tear.
There is a range of ways asphalt seal coating can be applied, and as your local experts, the team at Coastal Paving and Excavating can discuss the best option for your individual project’s requirements.
Sealcoat is an essential preventative element for all types of asphalt paving installations and should form part of any asphalt maintenance plan. The application of a high-quality asphalt seal coating solution can prevent oxidation, a leading cause of cracking and raveling.
Typically, asphalt seal coating is applied to any newly paved area of asphalt and between each 3-5 years as part of a routine maintenance plan.
Is Asphalt Sealcoating Absolutely Necessary?
As a highly effective method of protection for asphalt paving, sealcoating can help protect the integrity of the paving and the investment that has been made into the original installation.
Essentially, the seal coat will protect the asphalt from UV rays, chemicals, and moisture, as it can prevent the binders and fines from breaking free.
It is an ideal solution for both commercial and residential parking lots, large driveways, and roadways due to the sustained usage and stresses they are placed under from regular wear and tear, along with weather and traffic.
Avoiding Preventable Problems with Asphalt Paving
If left untreated, asphalt pavements can and do deteriorate. Also known as asphalt binder; (this is the glue that essentially holds the paving together), this will begin to weather and oxidize rapidly when there is no asphalt seal coating in place.
Water and chemicals will penetrate the surface of the paving, along with gas, salt, and oil, things that all roadways, parking lots, and driveways are particularly susceptible to, given their regular use.
The total impact of this environmental distress is what causes the deterioration, and it is what transforms a freshly paved, attractive black asphalt surface into aged, oxidized, cracked paving.
How Long Will Asphalt Seal Coat Last?
We expect the typical lifespan for a quality asphalt seal coat to last anything between two and five years. However, the local climate, along with the volume of traffic that is sustained, will also play a part in this figure. A new asphalt surface should be professionally seal coated within the first 12 months of installation in order to prevent the onset of cracking, raveling, and oxidation.

What are the Benefits of Asphalt Seal Coating?
What are the benefits of asphalt seal coating?
- It can extend the life of any paved asphalt surface.
- It can prevent oxidation and degradation of asphalt surfaces over time.
- It can protect asphalt pavement against shrinkage & minimize crack
- It can protect asphalt against harsh weather conditions.
- It increases the curb appeal of a property by providing a clean, dark appearance of the asphalt paving.
- It keeps asphalt paving clean and makes it easy to maintain.

A routinely scheduled program of asphalt seal coating could double the life expectancy of the asphalt.
What is the Difference Between Asphalt Sealcoat and Asphalt Overlay?
An asphalt overlay is akin to a patch job that is done in a specific area of asphalt. When asphalt is showing signs of potholes or cracking but does not yet need replacing, this is a viable solution. It involves placing a hot, fine layer of asphalt over the existing surface as an overlay. This won’t fix any issues underneath the asphalt, and for this reason, depending on the condition and potential extent of the damage, it might always be a feasible solution.
On the other hand, asphalt seal coating is a preventative process that is designed to offer protection to a surface. Although it could fill a very shallow cracking, having a professional asphalt crack-filling service is more suited to damaged asphalt. Professional seal coating can prevent further damage, but it cannot undo damage and deterioration that have already occurred. This is why it is recommended that you get asphalt seal coating place as quickly as possible, usually within the first 12 months of the paving being placed. Sealcoating will eventually wear out, so it is important to undertake a route of crack-filling and seal coating every 2-5 years.
When you invest money into asphalt paving, you want to make sure it lasts for the longest possible time and that it retains an attractive appearance that is free from degradation for as long as possible. When you consider how much it could cost to replace or repair damaged asphalt paving; regular maintenance via asphalt crack filling or seal coating will be a fraction of the cost comparatively speaking.
