Frequently Asked Questions
Sealcoating and repair
Due to the composition of asphalt, it is prone to breaking down over time. Sealcoating is the process of adding a layer of protection, while simultaneously enhancing the look of your home or business.
Asphalt is made up primarily of rocks/gravel in combination with a binder. Over time, this binder can begin to break down due to the elements, as well as normal wear and tear. Sealcoating provides a layer of protection against these factors, allowing your driveway to not only look better, but perform and hold up better.
Due to the climate in the northeast including a combination of hot summers, cold winters and chemicals present during the winter, we recommend sealcoating at least once every 2 years. Excessive wear as well as other factors could change this.
Although you can walk on the surface after just 24 hours, we recommend waiting 48-72 hours before parking vehicles on the driveway or parking lot for best results.
Sealcoating requires temperatures in excess of 50 degrees as well as a 24-hour curing period within the same temperature range.
The only thing you have to do to prepare is move any vehicles out of the driveway and then sit back and relax. We’ll take it from there.
We’ll handle those too. Your driveway will look as good as new when we’re done.
Striping your parking lot will enhance the look and feel of your business. You’re a professional and your customers trust you to provide the best services and products. Your parking lot should reflect your excellent reputation.
Though in many areas, bi-annual striping will suffice, the Northeast climate can take a toll on your parking lot. Annual restriping is our recommendation for best results.
The only thing you have to do to prepare for striping is remove vehicles from the areas being striped. We’ll take it from there.
Striping paint will be dry within a half hour, however, we recommend waiting at least an hour before driving in the areas that have been striped.
The best time of year to stripe is spring-fall. This will allow for a clean, chemical free surface, as well as adequate time and temperature for the paint to dry and cure.
