Get Started

With plenty of local sealcoating companies or asphalt sealcoating contractors to choose from it’s quite a mystery as to how to those Chicago potholes keep reappearing like bad weeds. But in this climate potholes are pretty much unavoidable – salt, wind, cold, rain, and traffic all contribute to the mess. However it can be managed with sealcoating. And to understand sealcoating, we first need to understand what asphalt is. 

What is asphalt?

Asphalt is rock, stone, and gravel mix, known as aggregate, and held together by a binding agent known as asphalt cement. This agent is made by distilling certain crude oils and is crucial in extending the lifespan of your asphalt surface. Natural elements such as rain, hail, and snow, UV rays, chemicals, and traffic all add to the binder breaking down and ultimately the deterioration of the asphalt. Having a solid maintenance program that includes sealcoating can greatly extend the lifespan of your parking lot.

What is sealcoating?

Sealcoating is a layer made of water, silica sand, polymer additives, and other proprietary solid fillers that creates a slip resistant surface and provides a nice black finish for your parking lot. Sealcoating application can be done in one of 2 ways: brush & squeegee or spray on. 

When applying your sealcoating product, follow these tips to make sure you get the highest return on your investment:

  • Apply at least 2 coats.
  • Temperatures must not be under 50 degrees or forecasted to drop below 50 for the duration of the application. It would be best to apply your sealcoating product if temperatures are not projected to get lower than 55.
  • Do not apply your sealcoat if rain is forecasted within the same 24 hour period.
  • Allow sealcoating to cure 48-72  hours before allowing vehicle traffic back on the surface.

To save money on your parking lot, sealcoating every 2 to 3 years will certainly extend the life of your asphalt pavement for minimal cost. For mere pennies per square foot every few years you can avoid having to get an entire new parking lot and spend thousands. Sealcoating can prevent oxidation, stop weather damage, and sealcoating beautifies pavement.

    Q: How do potholes form?
