Benefits of Driveway Sealing

Asphalt concrete is made up of mineral aggregate (such as granite, sandstone or limestone) and asphalt (used as a binder). When left unprotected, the asphalt is subject to degradation from water and oxidation. As the asphalt binder breaks down and dries up, the driveway will lose its black colour and begin to look old and grey.

Old Asphalt Concrete

As the asphalt continues to break down from the effects of ultraviolet rays from the sun, it can no longer hold together the aggragate material in the pavement. The driveway will begin losing some of the aggregate material, leaving larger pieces visible as small stones. Cracks will begin forming which will allow water to penetrate beneath the driveway. With the changing of the seasons, the water that makes its way below the driveway will freeze and expand, causing more damage and speeding up the deterioration process. Sealing your driveway with an asphalt based sealant will replenish some of the lost asphalt binder, greatly increasing the life of your driveway. It will also create a protective barrier from water, sun and gasoline among other things.

Sealing while the driveway is in good shape, will prevent the damage from starting and can double the life of your driveway.
