Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why cracksealing?

Water is the most destructive element to pavement. When water runs freely through cracks in the pavement, the sub-base loosens and deteriorates, weakening the load bearing capabilities of the pavement. When water freezes it expands, causing the pavement to form cracks.

Sealing cracks ¼" to 2" wide with hot poly fiber rubberized crack sealant that bonds to the crack walls and moves with the pavement will prevent water intrusion. When water is kept out, pavement deterioration is slowed, thereby helping the pavement to age gracefully.


Q. Why sealcoat?

Asphalt pavement has poor resistance to ultraviolet rays (sunlight). UV rays break down the liquid asphalt which holds the rock and sand together in the pavement. As pavement ages in color from black to gray, a process known as oxidation, it loses its flexibility, which causes it to become brittle which leads to cracks.

A professional seal-coating job will ensure the pavement will retain its flexibility and cohesiveness, along with enhancing the overall appearance of your property.
