If you have found cracks in your asphalt, you need to have it tended to immediately, before the problem gets much worse – and a lot more expensive. Cracks generally result from water or moisture getting underneath the asphalt itself, creating small cracks which can easily become much larger if they are not fixed in a timely manner.
At Diamond Line Painting, we want to get to the small cracks before they have the chance to expand, which is why we recommend you call us at the first sign of any problems. If you leave it too long, you risk having to replace your asphalt which can be an expensive process.
Once you have your cracks fixed, the best way to stop cracks forming in future is to use preventative measures, including seal coating.
Seal coating your asphalt helps to extend its life, sealing the small cracks and keeping water out of the pores to help prevent further cracking. It is the process of using asphalt, mixed with water, fillers, emulsifying agents and additives and applying these in thin coats on your asphalt to seal it – before those small cracks turn into a much bigger problem.
Advantages of seal coating:
Consider seal coating to be preventative maintenance, helping to protect your driveway from the elements; or enhancing your business brand by providing walk-in clients with a crisp and clean first impression.
At Diamond Line Painting, we recommend you call our experienced team every five years to seal coat your asphalt. If your asphalt needs repairing or seal coating, call us today on 905-453-0491.
