Why Sealcoating Asphalt Is So Important

Sealcoating asphalt is considered by most asphalt contractors as one of the most crucial aspects of any asphalt paving project. This is because sealcoating acts as a protective layer which can ensure asphalt pavement is protected from damage caused by harmful climate and weather conditions.

The sun’s UV rays can cause extensive structural damage to asphalt pavement – especially in a hot climate like that of Florida’s. UV rays can even cause more damage than motor oil, fuel spills, and tree roots according to scientific research.

This is one reason Atlantic Southern Paving & Sealcoating is proud to be the premier choice when it comes to sealcoating asphalt in Florida. ASP has the professional experience, vast resources, and diligent work ethic to ensure every job is done successfully and on time.

Just how can sealcoating ensure that your asphalt pavement remains fresh and in good condition for years to come? Below are a series of highlighted benefits that make sealcoating asphalt so important.

The Importance Of Sealcoating

Anyone who has ever walked barefoot on pavement in the middle of the day knows just how hot the asphalt can get. This is because asphalt surfaces are often much hotter than the actual outside temperature when the surface is exposed to constant sunlight and UV rays.

When asphalt is exposed to UV light over long periods of time, it causes the asphalt surfaces to dry up. When asphalt pavement dries up, it becomes prone to cracking over time.

The cracks create an opening for water to enter the area beneath the pavement called the subbase which will eventually cause broken pavement and annoying potholes. The process of asphalt sealcoating creates a defensive layer that protects the asphalt surface from the harmful UV rays.

This protection ensures that the asphalt surface remains looking like new for much longer and prevents damage that could lead to costly and frequent repairs and maintenance. Sealcoating asphalt is, therefore, a prudent investment for any property owner.

Other benefits of asphalt sealcoating include:

  • Reducing potential layer damage
  • Reducing the need for routine and expensive ongoing asphalt maintenance and repair
  • Keeps the appearance of the asphalt surface looking like new for longer
  • Fortifies the asphalt layer to prevent the potential occurrence of potholes, cracks, and other structural damage from forming.
  • Protects the asphalt surface from harmful chemicals found in motor oil and gasoline
  • Reducing the damage produce from weather, oxidation, and UV rays from the sun.
