YOU NEED TO KNOW…..
DRIVE-BY DRIVEWAY JOBS: A contractor knocks on the door and offers to sealcoat your asphalt driveway on the spot. He fails to mention that he’ll be using low quality sealant, thinner spray on application and won’t pressure wash before sealing.
HOW TO SPOT IT: Sealcoat is an emulsion of coal tar or asphalt, water, and a fine aggregate like silica clay. If the man at your door doesn’t have a tank that’s actively mixing the sealcoating material, send him on his way. Other tip-offs include out of state license plates, claims that he can only do it “today”.
DOING THE JOB RIGHT: Sealcoating helps protect the underlying pavement from air, sunlight, salts, and petroleum products. It also prevents water from turning hairline cracks into bigger ones. The aggregate in the mix enhances traction, acts as a wear layer, and fills small cracks.
Sealcoating gives the driveway a more uniform black color.
