At Brothers Paving in Elkridge, MD is renowned for our residential asphalt maintenance services, including high-quality asphalt sealcoating.
What is Asphalt Sealcoating?
Asphalt sealcoating, or pavement sealing, is the process of applying a protective coating to asphalt-based pavements to provide a layer of protection from the damaging effects brought by the freeze and thaw cycle, water, oils, and U.V. damage to your driveway or other residential asphalt surfaces.
Asphalt sealcoating slows down the oxidation process, fills and seals small cracks in the pavement, and increases the life span of your asphalt pavement. Asphalt sealcoating also acts as a waterproofing agent, minimizing the rate at which water enters the asphalt and thus extending the life of your Elkridge, MD area driveway, walkway, or road.
Asphalt sealcoating from Brothers Paving is also aesthetically pleasing and can improve the property value and curb appeal of your residential property. Our expert paving contracting team uses the highest quality sealer available: Black Diamond XL asphalt sealer, which is a new, high performance alternative to asphalt emulsion (AE) sealer and refined tar sealer. Black Diamond is a premium, heavy-duty, polymer-modified petroleum-based emulsion pavement sealer with superior performance, containing properties that enhance durability, adhesion, elastic, and wear resistance.
Black Diamond exceeds asphalt emulsion (AE) sealer’s performance with longer durability, increased toughness against power steering marks, and a richer, darker finish. Black Diamond sealer is fuel resistance, durable and lasts longer than emulsion tar sealer products. Let Brother’s Paving show you why we are regarded as the best seal coating company in Elkridge, MD.
When is Asphalt Sealcoating Required?
Brothers Paving in Elkridge, MD provides sealcoating services between one and two years after asphalt pavement installation. In general, sealcoating of asphalt pavements and driveways is recommended every two years, based on the aging of the asphalt, the conditions of the pavement, and volume of traffic. To ensure the sealing chemical sets and cures properly, the area needs to be protected for a minimum of 24 hours after application. Brothers Paving uses Black Diamond sealer because of its durability, increased toughness against power steering marks, and darker finish for your asphalt pavement.
Sealcoating not only protects your driveways from external elements like moisture, chemicals, and salts, but it also covers scars and patches on your pavement. Those who sealcoat their parking lot or driveway can expect less frequent maintenance and a longer lasting asphalt surface. Brother’s Paving uses quality equipment and superior materials to apply the emulsions easily by spraying or using squeegees.
