Asphalt is made of three main ingredients: stone, sand and oil. The oil is the adhesive that keeps the sand and stone together. Sealcoating seals the oil in the mix and inhibits the sand and stone from falling apart. Without sealcoating, the oil evaporates from the asphalt, and the asphalt deteriorates.
Alphalt should always be black, not gray or white. The lighter the color of the asphalt the higher amount of oil that has evaporated from it.
Fact: Asphalt that is sealcoated on a regular basis will last three to four times longer than asphalt that is not sealcoated, or only sealcoated every few years.
Fact: Replacing a driveway can cost more than 20 times the cost of sealcoating. Remember the old saying? "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!"
Fact: All residential sealcoating should be applied by hand with brushes; never sprayed on. When DAMICO PAVING seals a driveway, the sealer gets on the asphalt . . . nothing else! SEE CONSUMER WARNING!
