The Importance Of Periodic Driveway Sealing
Periodic driveway sealing can save you a lot of money over the course of your home ownership by reducing the likelihood of a total driveway replacement. Like changing the oil in your car, driveway sealing helps ensure that you driveway will perform for you as long as possible.
Intense ultra-violet light exposure, extreme temperature changes and the inevitable effects of snow removal wear down your Tahoe Donner driveway faster than driveways in non-mountain environments.
Periodic driveway sealing helps protect the oils that bind the asphalt materials together. It seals over the porous asphalt surface, reducing the chance of sub-surface water damage. Filling the cracks with a hot rubberized compound minimizes the amount of water that can penetrate down to the base material and erode away the driveway foundation. The sealant also acts as a wear layer on your driveway, taking the brunt of the abuse from the driveway’s asphalt and transferring it to the top coat of sealant.
