Parking lot and driveway sealer consists of a coal-tar emulsion and is essentially a heavy-duty barrier for your asphalt. The frequency with which your property requires driveway sealing depends on your particular circumstances. Typically, it is a good idea to add a new layer of seal coat every one to three years. Unlike some paving contractors, Christopher’s Paving isn’t the type of company that will perform a substandard job in order to force you to call for our services on a more frequent basis. We are an ethical company that believes in providing each and every customer with the same high-quality craftsmanship and honest, comprehensive customer service. For a sealcoat that will have the strength to last season after season, call or e-mail us today.

Sealcoating your driveway can help safeguard against:
- Oxidation—Oxidation occurs when your bare asphalt is exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun. If not properly covered with seal coating, the persistent sunshine will cause your asphalt to dry out and harden. The disintegration of the top layer of your pavement results in reduced thickness and increased weakness, encouraging the development of cosmetic problems and possible safety hazards such as cracks and potholes. Without timely driveway sealing or parking lot seal coating, oxidation can also turn black asphalt to an unsightly gray color.
- Weathering—The penetration of moisture coupled with seasonal freezing and thawing can also cause serious flaws in your asphalt. Even what begins as a hairline crack can quickly turn into a huge fissure that runs right down to the base coat and could create the need for costly asphalt repair. Seal coat application prevents rain and snow from penetrating the porous surface and increases your pavement’s longevity.
- Softening—Substances such as gasoline, oil, and de-icing agents can have softening effects on your driveway or parking lot. Routine seal coat application can create a barrier between the underlying asphalt and these damaging materials, effectively protecting your driveway.
The driveway sealers Christopher’s Paving will begin the process by repairing any holes and cracks in your asphalt. We’ll apply hot tar with a hand brush or spray-on applicator, depending on the magnitude and nature of the project. Then we will put down your new layer of top-quality seal coating with a squeegee or a spray-on mechanism, making sure to reach every last inch of your driveway or parking lot and keeping the layer completely even. After we’re finished, your professional driveway sealer will let you know about the proper waiting time before driving and walking on your surface, provide you with any needed maintenance or care tips, and answer any questions you may have about your new blacktop sealer or the driveway sealing process. At Christopher’s Paving, we’re here to make resealing your driveway simple and easy!
