We cannot deny that asphalt plays a vital role when it comes to the strategic use of its use as a material for the construction or creation of land communication routes, however, nothing lasts forever and asphalt paving is no exception. Adverse weather conditions such as high temperatures or social factors such as heavy traffic and vehicle capacity are some of the elements that over time can accelerate the deterioration and decomposition of the asphalt pavement.

Asphalt sealing beyond these benefits complies with generating an excellent aesthetic impression that will make your property look its best, providing a clean and fresh appearance. As the asphalt ages it shows signs of deterioration or aging, one of the easiest ways to identify this is when after a significant time its black color begins to lose intensity and fade to gray and cracks begin to appear on the surface.

However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it…

They say that everything has a solution and although we are not sure about it, at APR we can assure you that these types of problems related to asphalt paving do have a solution.

Sealing cracks in pavements is one of the most common and recommended options if you want to extend the life span of your parking lot or street, thus improving the external aesthetics of your property or business.

But what happens if you avoid the sealing liner?

There are good or bad decisions and avoiding a sealing coating in situations that warrant it can lead to unfavorable and uncomfortable scenarios such as the formation of cracks in the surface or the presence of potholes and excess moisture in them. 

That is why we want to mention some benefits that demonstrate the importance of asphalt sealing:

  • Prevents water seepage and excess moisture : As cracks are filled and sealed, the likelihood of water seeping onto the pavement surface is significantly reduced
  • Prevents water seepage and excess moisture : As cracks are filled and sealed, the likelihood of water seeping onto the pavement surface is significantly reduced
  • Prevents water seepage and excess moisture : As cracks are filled and sealed, the likelihood of water seeping onto the pavement surface is significantly reduced
  • Prevents water seepage and excess moisture : As cracks are filled and sealed, the likelihood of water seeping onto the pavement surface is significantly reduced
  • Prevents water seepage and excess moisture : As cracks are filled and sealed, the likelihood of water seeping onto the pavement surface is significantly reduced

However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it

Luckily, everything asphalt related has a solution! That solution will depend on the situation that is causing the issue.

But what happens if you avoid the sealing?

If you avoid or put off sealing your asphalt, you’re well on your way to repaving. Signs will include the formation of cracks in the surface and excess of moisture in them causing problems.

  • Prevents water seepage and excess moisture intrusion: As cracks are filled and sealed, the likelihood of water getting into the pavement surface is significantly reduced.
  • Delays deterioration by oxidation: Oxidation causes the pavement to become brittle over time, accelerates the presence of cracks and other types of deterioration. Sealing significantly delays this.
  • Improves traction on roads: The application of asphalt sealant in parking lots or roads helps to prevent and avoid the wear of small of fine particles of sand that over time can affect your traction when driving.
  • Helps you save money: Did you know that proper maintenance can help you save money in the long run? This is one of the most striking benefits for people, research has shown that this avoids much more expensive repairs in the long run and preserves the quality of the pavement over time. Studies show that 1$ of maintenance saves 6$ in repaving costs later.
  • Extend the life of your pavement: Without a doubt the most important benefit, a well-built surface can last more than 15 years but did you know that sealing can help you double this time with just 2-3 application in the same time frame?

Asphalt sealing also improves the overall aesthetics of your surface and will make your property look better by being clean and well maintained.
