Sealcoating your driveway is a great way to add value to your home, as well as protect your driveway. Here are 5 reasons you should sealcoat your driveway.
1. Prolongs Asphalt Life-Expectancy
Sealcoating adds a protective layer to your driveway. It protects asphalt from damaging UV rays, water, and more. Adding a layer of sealcoating can keep your driveway from damage long term. Sealcoating is a low-maintenance solution to keeping your driveway fresh for longer.
2. Makes Your Driveway Look New
Asphalt fades over time due to UV damage. A fresh sealcoating job can enhance the appearance of asphalt, making it look brand new. A new-looking driveway can increase your curb appeal and add value to your home.
3. Speeds Up Melting Ice and Snow
Sealcoating doesn’t just protect your driveway, it can also speed up the rate at which ice and snow melt. This can protect your driveway from damage caused by cold weather, as well as make winter weather easier to handle.
4. Can Save You Money in the Long Run
Sealcoating is a preventative measure you can take to protect your driveway from damage. Protecting your driveway from damage now can lead to reduced repair costs later on. Sealcoating can decrease cracking, leading to fewer repairs and more savings. Sealcoating is a great addition to a new driveway as well, as it will slow down damage.
5. Fixes Minor Surface Damage
A new layer of sealcoating can fill in minor dents and cracks on the surface of your driveway. Filling in small cracks early can also delay expensive repairs of larger cracks.
