Driveways are used to get from the street to the garage or house, and if paved properly can be an attractive part of your property. In addition, a sealed driveway minimizes mud, snowmelt and bird droppings which helps protect your paved surfaces below.
Driveways have always been important for families with children going in and out of the driveway to school every day in automobiles. Driveway paving usually lasts about 10 years before it needs sealing or resurfacing even when done correctly so it is a worthwhile project to take care of. Driveway wear is usually more noticeable on faded driveways that have lost their sealant over time because sealant might not penetrate deeply into the cracks of new asphalt.
You will need to invest in your driveway to keep it up to standards. Read on to learn more about how asphalt sealing can help get you there.
What is driveway sealing?
Sealing your driveway is a process involving injecting sealant into the cracks of asphalt to protect it from water, snow and ice. Asphalt sealing provides moisture barrier protection as well as effective crack repair for better performance and longer life expectancy.
Sealing your driveway involves a contractor applying an asphalt sealant and then rolling it into the cracks of your existing paving. The roller creates minor cracking, which is filled with the sealant material to prevent water from seeping through and collecting on top of concrete or stone surfaces below.
How can I tell if I need to seal my driveway?
You need to seal your driveway if you notice water marks on the outside of your garage door, or stains under windows and doors. You might also want to consider sealing a new asphalt driveway as soon as it is installed. Sealing an asphalt driveway helps prevent cracking and maintains its attractive appearance for years after installation.
If your driveway is not sealed, you might notice:
– Water stains on the garage door or side of house.
– Cracks that allow water to settle and work its way under concrete surfaces; this can cause damage over time as moisture eats away at sealant holding materials such as stone pieces in place.
– Loss of appearance over time.
Is sealing worth it?
Sealing your driveway is a worthwhile investment because it can add significant value to the property while protecting concrete surfaces below from water damage. A properly sealed and maintained asphalt surface requires less maintenance over time which saves money in the long run.
