Many Illinois homes now have concrete driveways. Concrete is a popular choice because it is long-lasting, fairly easy to maintain and when poured correctly is aesthetically pleasing. The most popular choice in concrete driveway is finished with a concrete broom, followed by the second most popular and more expensive exposed aggregate finish.
Another popular driveway choice for Illinois homeowners and commercial property owners is asphalt. Asphalt is durable and a less expensive option to concrete. Despite its appearance asphalt is extremely porous and can be damaged by weather and wear if left unprotected. The asphalt surface will also fade, pit, and eventually crumble if not maintained properly, which will eventually lead to it needing major repair.
Sealcoating is an important part of maintaining your asphalt surface. Sealcoating is applied to the entire asphalt surface and covers the entire asphalt with a flat black coat of coal tar that seals the porous asphalt surface. Once dried the sealcoating acts as a protective layer keeping the surface looking clean and new, while resisting deterioration from fuel oils, chemicals, rain and sun and wear.
Stops oil, salt & chemical damage
Only coal tar sealer protects asphalt against the highly damaging effects of fuel oil seepage, winter salts and all other road chemicals. Sealing prevents water seepage into porous asphalt, stopping damage caused by rain, frost, freezing and thawing. A coal tar coating also inhibits the breakdown of the surface by hardening and oxidation, caused by the heat of the sun.
Save Money, Reduce Maintenance, Protect Your Investment
Seal coating can save you money and protect your investment. Most often unsealed surfaces usually begin to see the need for repair after two years and major surface repair after 7 years. Properly applied sealcoating and other small surface maintenance can save you A LOT of money over time.
