Misconceptions About Driveway Sealing

By nygms2 0 Comment February 28, 2024

Driveway sealing is a great way to help increase the longevity of your driveway by creating a layer of protection for it. Here are some common misconceptions about driveway sealing:

  • Oil-based pavement sealers are sealants: Oil-based pavement sealers are used more for driveways that need rejuvenation more than sealing the pavement. 
  • Sealcoating is expensive: Sealcoating is sort of considered an investment. It can be expensive, but it will pay off in the future because it will protect the surface of the asphalt and prevent cracks which will increase the driveway’s lifetime. 
  • Sealcoating is only for new surfaces: Water can impact asphalt whether it’s new or old. Applying a sealcoat is beneficial for all surfaces whether they are new or old.
