Sealing your asphalt driveway or parking area every
1-2 years thereafter is an important part of maintaining
elasticity in all bituminous products.
It is also the best time to take care
of any cracks or holes that need to be filled and prevent water from
getting into your Gravel Base / Foundation.
Elements such as the sun and rain
will wear and dry asphalt. Asphalt will dry and become brittle with
age. Even if asphalt is not exposed to any outdoor elements it
would still lighten and dry with time!
If water goes all the way through the
asphalt, it will begin washing away the gravel base foundation
weakening structural support.
Sealing your driveway is a great
tribute to the longevity of asphalt. Driveway maintenance and
preventative care will go a long way it protecting your investment!
