Preventative Maintenance – Why Seal with OverKote?
There are three reasons why you should consider doing some preventative maintenance sealing with OverKote:
- Protection – Due to the nature of asphalt, over time it begins to oxidize and appear gray. This is the best time to apply one or two coats of sealer. Even if the asphalt has deteriorated to the point of unraveling, where loose aggregate or stones appear, it is still a good starting point to seal, as long as no visible cracking has occurred and the asphalt is still in good condition.
- Cost Effective – Allowing the asphalt to age with no maintenance will allow water to collect and penetrate the surface. Once water damages the base or sub base, the asphalt will crack or alligator. If visible cracking has occurred then major repairs are needed. Regular asphalt maintenance with sealcoat can prolong the life of your asphalt at a fraction of the cost.
- Aesthetics – Sealcoat adds to property value and over appearance.
