Protect Your Investment With ASAP Paving’s Asphalt Sealcoat
ASAP Paving in Los Angeles & Orange County, California knows that installing new asphalt is an investment, and our asphalt sealcoating services are here to protect that investment. After four to six months, a new section of asphalt has been allowed to settle and cure completely. At this point, we can apply a layer of sealcoat. Sealcoat protects the asphalt from oxidation from UV Rays and prevents water and oils from absorbing into the asphalt. Sealcoated asphalt will hold together better as well, preventing cracks and potholes from occurring. Many sealcoating jobs are done just because it looks nice though. Experts recommend giving asphalt a new layer of sealcoat every few years to give it a fresh new look and layer of protection.
The Risks of Ignoring Routine Asphalt Sealcoating
It is easy to underestimate the importance of asphalt sealcoating. Your asphalt has to sit outside all day and night, getting beaten down by the elements. Unsealed asphalt is entirely vulnerable to rain, wind, and the constant UV rays from the sun. These stress your asphalt over time and eventually cause it to crack. Additionally, oils from cars and trucks will absorb into the asphalt, causing unsightly stains and compromising its integrity. Once your asphalt is sealcoated, the actual asphalt is not exposed directly to the heat, rain, and chemicals. With routine sealcoating, ASAP Paving can extend the life of your asphalt and save you a lot of money in the future.
The Importance of an Asphalt Sealcoat in Los Angeles, CA
