Asphalt Sealcoating Services
Many property owners don’t understand what seal coating is. For you to understand the concept of sealcoating, it works like sunscreen.
To have a quick improvement, asphalt companies offer cost-effective and time-saving solutions. It is called an asphalt overlay.
Asphalt overlay is considered more economically practical than having a new pavement since a proper foundation has already been established. If you want to revamp your asphalt surface as soon as possible and at the most affordable solution, an asphalt overlay is all you need. It is different from asphalt replacement or resurfacing, as it doesn’t require any removal of the old asphalt.
Though asphalt overlay is not a long-term solution, it gives you a new surface that costs less than the removal or replacement of the existing asphalt. At Olathe Asphalt Company, we can lay a new asphalt over the existing surface. You will then have a fresh and new look parking lot or driveways.
What Exactly Sealcoat is?
Sealcoat is a mixture of asphalt, water, and aggregate and it is applied to your asphalt by a sprayer or a squeeze. The application can be done by a machine or manually. If sealcoating is done correctly, it provides an aesthetic enhancement to your driveways or parking lots. Sealcoat material also has a high level of durability. All in all, you can have an asphalt driveway or parking lot that looks super black and beautiful.
Do I need to seal coat my asphalt driveway?
Yes! Your asphalt driveway is a capital investment like your building, roofing, plumbing, or HVAC system. Any asphalt surface must have proper maintenance in order to extend its functionality over time.
What are the benefits sealcoating offers?
Sealcoating provides an attractive dark black appearance to your asphalt. Aside from that, it fills holes and cracks in the asphalt surface, which prevents further dreadful conditions. Additionally, sealcoating offers the following major benefits, including:

When do I need to Sealcoat my driveways and parking lots?
Sealcoating is recommended every two to three years, or even sooner, depending on your asphalt surface needs. Sealcoating should be normalized once your asphalt pavement has been seal coated.
For new asphalt pavements, it is recommended by the experts to wait for about six to twelve months. Sealcoating is applied after the newly paved surface is fully cured.
Have your asphalt surface evaluated every six months. Evaluating your asphalt is essential to know the condition of your asphalt driveways or parking lots. It helps identify potential issues that your asphalt may be experiencing. Then, always consider the most effective way to protect your asphalt, and that is having sealcoating applied.
What will Sealcoating cost me?
As mentioned earlier, sealcoating is the most cost-effective preventive maintenance that should be done regularly to protect your asphalt surface. Typically, sealcoating your driveways or even parking lots costs just pennies per square foot. Compared to having expensive asphalt repairs or replacements, sealcoating is a better option.

How is Sealcoating Applied?
Before applying sealcoat to your asphalt paved surface, removing all dirt and debris using pressure washers, sweepers, blowers, and wire brooms are essential. Double-checking should be done to ensure that all residue is entirely removed, including chemicals such as gasoline and oil. Cleaning properly ensures that the seal coat will adhere properly to the asphalt. If your asphalt has cracks or potholes, it must be filled.
Sealcoating process can begin once the asphalt surface is completely dried. It is where we will start applying sealcoat by using spray, hand squeeze machine, or brush applicator.
The seal coat must be applied evenly, and there must be no overlapping of the sealcoating. In general, two coats will be applied.
Once the project is finished, your asphalt surface should be fully cured before allowing any traffic on the seal coated asphalt.
