The Benefits of Using Sealcoating for Your Driveway

Your driveway is one of the first things people see when they come to your home, just like your yard, flowers, front door and outside windows. However, many people simply don’t consider their driveway because they’re so busy and other parts of the house tend to take priority. If your home doesn’t have the best overall look on the outside, fixing up your driveway could help you out quite a bit. Use this guide to learn more about Manassas sealcoating driveway basics.

Repair Cracks with Sealcoating

Sealcoating is one of the best ways to repair visible cracks in the surface of your asphalt driveway if you want a smooth, uniform look. These cracks, which are typically the result of severe weather, sunshine and the effects of time, make your home look run down and in need of repair.

The sealcoating process can quickly correct the cracks and damage to your driveway while returning your asphalt to a uniform color. In addition to repairing the look of your driveway, sealcoating can help to extend the life of your asphalt driveway significantly.

Sealcoating Keeps Your Driveway Clean

One of the biggest benefits of sealcoating for the average homeowner is that it can keep your driveway clean each and every day. For example, oil and gas that end up on the surface of your driveway from your car – especially if you don’t park in the garage – can leave unsightly stains. With sealcoating, oil and gas won’t be able to easily penetrate the surface of the driveway and can be washed away with water from a hose or natural rain.

That means a driveway that looks cleaner every day with very little maintenance. Sealcoating also makes removing snow from your driveway considerably easier, which is important if you live in a cold climate.

Sealcoating is Affordable

The price of asphalt is relative to the cost of oil, so when the price of oil goes up, so will replacing your asphalt driveway. When you add sealcoating to your driveway, you’ll be able to keep it considerably longer.

The average price of sealcoating your driveway is also lower than replacing it, which usually isn’t necessary unless your driveway is severely damaged or very old. For most homeowners, sealcoating is the most cost-effective solution for driveway repair or beautification.
