Whether your driveway
or parking lot is newly built or several years old, proper maintenance can extend
its life by as many as 25 years. Maintenance services such as sealcoating, crack
sealing and vacuum sweeping not only save years on your pavement, but also beautify
the appearance of your home or business.
Established in 1989 and fully insured with all necessary liability and workers'
compensation insurance, Ace Asphalt Inc. is experienced in protecting
and beautifying all types of asphalt. We use high-grade materials, and our top-of-the-line
equipment is upgraded regularly.
Why Should I Seal Coat?
Sealcoating is important for several reasons:
Sealcoating prevents oxidation.
Asphalt pavement begins to deteriorate almost as soon as it is placed. As the
pavement is exposed to oxygen, the asphalt binder (tar) hardens. This hardening
results in a brittle surface that eventually cracks. Cracks in the pavement
enable oxygen and rainwater to penetrate the pavement, often into the subbase,
weakening it and reducing the pavement's strength. Sealcoating protects the
surface and fills surface voids, reducing pavement's exposure to oxygen and
water and extending pavement life.
resists ultraviolet rays.
By breaking down the links between the carbon bonds in the asphalt, ultraviolet
rays cause pavement to deteriorate and crumble. Regularly applied sealcoat helps
to prevent ultraviolet rays from penetrating the pavement.
resists oil and gas spills.
This is especially important on driveways where cars are parked or worked on.
Oil and gasoline soften asphalt. Our professional-grade sealer contains additives
that enable it to resist any such leaks. By filling surface voids, sealcoating
also reduces the depth to which oil or gas can penetrate the pavement.
enhances pavement appearance and eases maintenance.
Sealcoating brings back the dark black color of the original pavement, making
it look and wear like new. Sealcoated pavement is also easier to clean and maintain.
Because sealcoat fills surface voids, a sealcoated surface is much smoother.
And a smoother surface is easier to sweep, shovel, and wash.
