Seal coating asphalt is one of the specialty services offered by Harris Paving Industries. By seal coating a driveway, we are able to enhance the appearance of your home or business, making it look more attractive to your visitors and providing a great first impression if your home is listed for sale. The seal coating provides a deep black color to the pavement so that it looks and wears like new, extending the asphalt’s lifespan and making it more attractive.
Seal coating also slows the oxidation process. Exposure to oxygen causes asphalt to become brittle and crack. The cracks allow water to penetrate, weakening the driveway and reducing pavement strength. Over time, more cracks develop and become potholes. The seal coating fills in small surface voids and minimizes oxidation. Seal-coated asphalt also resists gas spills and oil stains, which soften asphalt and cause its surface to weaken. Seal coating helps the asphalt to remain strong, even in the presence of intense sunshine. The coating can prevent any additional damage from developing.
