Did you know that sealcoating more than doubles the life of your asphalt pavement? Did you realize that sealcoating an average driveway costs about $250 compared to paving an average driveway at $2500? Did you know the number one element that destroys asphalt is the sun? The sun produces ultraviolet rays which bake the oils out of asphalt and make it brittle! Sealcoating puts a barrier over the asphalt so the oils stay inside of it. Sealer also makes asphalt resistant to gasoline, oil, and weather. Once your asphalt is compromised it is in risk of water entering it. Water is the root of all evil in asphalt! The smallest amount of water over time will eventually start to undermine asphalt and ruin the base. The base getting ruined will cause cracks, mushy areas, sink holes, and pot holes. Once the water freezes in winter the asphalt will heave and break causing chunks of asphalt to actually break away from the driveway or parking lot leaving holes. Vaughan Sealcoating and Paving LLC takes every precaution to make sure you are fully protected against these harsh events.
At Vaughan Sealcoating we use top-of-the line StarSeal commercial grade sealer, the most durable and longest lasting asphalt sealer on the market. Every load of sealer gets three pounds of sand added to each gallon of sealer. This provides a safe skid resistant surface. Do you have a steep driveway and have a slippery time in winter? Vaughan will add extra sand for hills to give the extra traction needed. Experiencing cracks in your pavement? Vaughan Sealcoating and Paving LLC uses Crafco hot rubberized crack fillers on all jobs. Crafco makes a variety of different types of hot crack fillers to accommodate any job from driveways to roads. Crafco hot crack fillers are made of rubber and have flexibility so as the earth moves so does the crack filler. The crack filler expands and contracts as the weather fluctuates so the cracks do not open up with the first ground movement.
