Residential Sealcoating By Squeegee
Unlike many other Sealcoating Companies who water down and spray their sealcoating product on residential driveways, COD Asphalt and Sealcoating “ONLY” uses a Squeegee and a Roller for this application of the Sealcoating Emulsion on our Residential driveways for a much thicker coat. We also use one of the top-of-the-line Sealcoating Products called Star Seal with a sand additive for longer durability which is one of the best products on the market today.
Sealcoating is the application of a coal tar emulsion sealcoat to a paved surface in order to prolong its integrity and protect the asphalt from harmful UV Rays, harsh oils, gases and other chemicals from penetrating deep into the asphalt. Sealcoating also provides a slip resistant surface with a deep black finish that beautifies the asphalt and protects it from the damaging effects of the environment including moisture and ultraviolet oxidation. If the new asphalt is never sealed the oxidation process never stops, causing the pavement to lose too much oil. Sealcoating your asphalt will prolong the life of your pavement and save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in the long run. Since the asphalt oil in your pavement is the glue holding the asphalt material together, losing too much of your pavement’s oil will cause the rock and sand material from your pavement to unravel.
It is strongly recommended that a sealer should be placed on new asphalt areas approximately 3 to 6 months after the asphalt has had time to cure and then repeat the Sealcoating every 24-36 months thereafter. Sealing new asphalt too early will stop the oxidation process and can cause a pavement to retain too much of its asphalt oils. Once new pavement has oxidized enough it will appear to be a more grayish color and will be able to withstand a dead-stop power steering turn. By Sealcoating asphalt after it has cured will help prevent future damage to the asphalt that is normally due to the exposure of chemicals and elements that the asphalt is exposed to normally by gasoline, oil drippings, sun, salt, and water penetration. This type of process looks and feels new to the traveling public.
All of our Commercial Sealcoating is applied by Two (2) Coats of Spray using Star Seal Emulsion with Sand & Rubber Additives to longer durability.
