Sealing protects your new asphalt from a variety of elements. Gasoline and oil leaks from your vehicles deteriorate and weaken the asphalt, leaving visible, unpleasant stains. Rain is a key player to raveling; unsealed pavement allows water to penetrate the surface. Also, Florida’s hot sun can dry the asphalt out (oxidation) leaving behind weak and cracked asphalt, eventually leading to major cracks and potholes. After a 6 month curing period, we recommend sealcoating every 2 to 3 years.
