You probably didn’t think about it, but your driveway matters. While many homeowners invest in maintaining other aspects of their homes like their lawns and kitchen, the driveway doesn’t usually get as much attention. But your driveway deserves focus too. It’s the first thing that people see when they come to your house.
Driveway sealing is important because it protects your driveway and makes it last longer, preventing the need for more expensive repairs down the line. Sealing your driveway is a great investment that will protect it from harmful UV rays, water damage, cracks, and potholes for many more years to come.
Who needs driveway sealing?
Anyone in Rahway who wants their driveway to look great and last for years! Because the weather in Rahway is constantly changing, driveways are usually impacted by snow and rain. Driveway sealing is the best way to make sure that your driveway will be protected no matter what time of year it is.
Driveways should be sealed every couple of years to maintain the best condition. You should also invest in driveway sealing if a visual inspection has revealed that there are cracks or potholes. These could be indicators of bigger problems, so it’s a good idea to have them repaired as soon as possible.
When should I get my driveway sealed?
The best time to get your driveway sealed is in the fall or springtime because that means you can avoid extreme weather damage throughout the year. That being said, if you spot damage, it’s best to get an expert opinion right away to avoid potentially far worse problems.
How does driveway sealing work?
Driveways are porous, which means that they absorb water like a sponge – and the freeze/thaw cycle of water means that the water gets trapped in the pores of your asphalt, leading to cracking and potholes. Apply a sealant will solve this issue by filling in the pores with a water-resistant material.
When you seal your driveway, we’ll first clean and clear the surface; this allows us to smooth out the top layer of the driveway. Once we’ve completed this step, a mixture of petroleum and asphalt will be applied to your driveway using a sprayer on our truck. The sealant that is used for sealing driveways acts as an adhesive until it completely dries into a clear coat over the entire length of your driveway.
Driveway sealants and coatings are applied with either asphalt or acrylic materials. They come in many different colors too.
Once the coating is down, it’s time for your new driveway to shine. It can take a few days for the sealant to completely dry. Once it’s dried, your driveway will be protected from all kinds of damage and will look great too.
