Allow Master Markings to Resurface Your Driveway

When it comes to maintaining your pavement driveway, making sure that it is properly sealed is a must. Sealing your driveway will help to slow down the deterioration that occurs from general wear and tear due to usage as well as from exposure to the elements over time. Every once in a while, driveway resurfacing is necessary. This involves re-sealing the driveway if it has begun to experience the development of cracks or potholes.

Before the driveway resurfacing process can begin, there are a number of steps that will need to be taken in order to prepare the pavement. First of all, the driveway will need to be thoroughly cleaned. This involves pulling out any weeds that have grown through the cracks in your driveway. Additionally, all debris – such as dirt and dead leaves – needs to be swept away. While a broom can be used, a leaf blower will do a much more thorough – not to mention quicker – job of removing debris from cracks and potholes. A pressure washer will help remove any other dirt that remains. Making sure the area is clean is incredibly important, as it will ensure that the sealant will stick.

Once the driveway is clean, any cracks or potholes that are present will need to be filled up. Once this has been accomplished, it’s time to begin the driveway resurfacing process. Here at Master Markings, we use our SEALMASTER brand sealcoating product, which is known for its longevity. Our SEALMASTER product won’t hurt your lawn and is perfect for residential driveways as it does not leave a mess on walls or grass.

Once we have resurfaced your pavement driveway with our sealant, you’ll want to leave it be for a while in order to let it cure and dry. We will mark off the area that has been sealed to prevent traffic from disturbing it.

There are a number of benefits to resealing your driveway. Doing so will help to slow down deterioration, which means you don’t have to worry about doing as much driveway maintenance as you would have to do if you did not resurface the driveway. Not to mention that repairing the cracks and potholes will reduce safety risks and make your driveway look much better.
