Driveway Sealcoating in St. Mission, KS
We are often asked what driveway sealing does.
Whether your driveway is concrete or asphalt, sealing it is an important part of keeping it looking like new for a long time. Asphalt driveway sealer, which sits on top of the driveway, acts as a barrier that prevents water, ice, car fluids, the sun, salt and other chemicals from staining and eating away at the surface of the driveway.
The frequency with which you should use driveway seal will vary based on your driveway age. In Kansas City we deal with cold, harsh winters and numerous freeze-thaw cycles. In hot summers the asphalt is very warm and leaches the essential oils that bind the asphalt together.
Sealcoating regularly prevents these problems by creating a durable surface that will protect the binding properties of the asphalt and prevent ice and water penetration, extending the life of the asphalt and preventing more costly repairs
