Asphalt Sealer is a key component in protecting asphalt and extending the life of the asphalt surface. Asphalt sealer helps to beautify, slow oxidation, protect against water penetration (rain / snow / ice), provides a barrier against oil & gas spills, and protects against salt damage.
Most of our jobs we do here are applied by hand to insure a complete and even first coat. Sealing coats can also be applied using spray units if the specific job calls for it. Silica sand and other additives may or can be included according to your pavement's specific needs to further fill any surface irregularities, speed drying time or add additional non-slip texture. 23 years of sealcoating experience has led us to develop an extremely efficient and high-quality process.

Crack Filling / Joint Sealing
One of the most damaging things to asphalt pavement surfaces is cracking. Cracks in your asphalt surfaces allow moisture to penetrate the pavement. In the winter this moisture can freeze causing a multitude of more serious problems. In the warmer months weeds or grass can grow in the cracks causing extensive damage. A crack is a future pothole waiting to happen.
Professional crackfilling and crack repair using specialized hot applied materials is best but if the cracks are not too numerous or large often the homeowner can be the first line of defense against the inevitable damage caused by cracks in asphalt pavements.
Crack Filling is the process of injecting a hot pour rubberized sealant into isolated cracks in the asphalt pavement to prevent water from penetrating the sub-grade and stone base.
If your asphalt driveway or asphalt parking lot has cracks, it would be best to make crackfilling a priority. It's an investment that will pay for itself many times over by saving more extensive maintenance and repairs and by helping your pavement last as long as possible.
Dollar for Dollar crack filling is the most cost effective maintenance for your pavement.
- Cracks in asphalt allow water under the pavement which causes the base to become unstable during the freeze thaw cycle.
- Unstable base leads to more cracking and eventual pavement failure.
- Cracks which form intersections are a pothole waiting to happen
