What do driveway sealing services include?
Driveway sealing (also known as driveway sealcoating) is the process of adding a layer of sealant to asphalt or concrete to protect it from harmful elements.
Each driveway is different, and sealers on the market may have varying instructions for use, but should you need to hire an expert to help you with driveway sealing, here’s what a typical sealcoating service should include.
Asphalt and concrete driveway sealing
Most driveways are either made up of asphalt or concrete. The cost of installing an asphalt driveway is typically less expensive than concrete, but it will need more maintenance as asphalt driveways require sealing every few years. This doesn’t mean concrete ones shouldn’t be sealed.
Concrete is more customizable than asphalt in its color, and sealing concrete driveways can help slow down fading and prevent stains.
Driveway sealing preparation
This is the part that takes the most time because your driveway needs a thorough cleaning. This means washing off all dirt and debris, removing grease stains, filling in cracks, and patching potholes. Visible weeds between cracks should also be pulled.
The driveway must be completely dry before your Tasker can proceed with applying the sealant. They will also make sure that the driveway is barricaded and inaccessible to other people. It’s best to check the weather because you’ll need two to three days of clear skies.
Sealcoating with a squeegee or sprayer
Once your driveway is ready, your Tasker will then mix and apply the sealant. There are two application methods: by using a squeegee or a sprayer. A sprayer is easier and faster to use, but a squeegee can provide better coverage and fill in cracks. Using a squeegee takes significantly more time, and there are times when contractors choose to use both. You can consult your hired expert to decide on what method works best for you.
After the actual sealing process, the Tasker will check the surface for missed spots and apply a second coat of sealant if necessary. The driveway then needs to dry before it’s ready for foot or vehicle traffic.
