Sealcoating or pavement sealing is your very best way to prolong the life of your asphalt parking lot, asphalt sidewalk, and more!
WHAT IS SEALCOATING?
Sealcoating is the application of a specially-formulated liquid coating to asphalt pavement. As the liquid dries, it hardens to seal and creates a membrane. As a result, the new layer protects the pavement from water penetration, sun damage, gasoline, rock salt, oil, ice, and other chemicals that can degrade the surface over time.

Left unsealed, sunlight, wind, and water will gradually cause asphalt to harden and oxidize. Consequently, it becomes more brittle and cracking can occur. Over the space of a few years, asphalt paving can be seriously damaged if it is not periodically sealed. Therefore, to prevent the effects of weathering, seal coating is a seasonal rite for many businesses in and around Chicago. Regular pavement sealing prevents damage from freezing water as well as salts and road chemicals due to Chicago's cold climate.
