What is Sealcoating Elmhurst IL?

Sealcoating Elmhurst IL are typically applied to the surface of asphalt pavement for driveways or parking lots. They are applied either with a rubberized squeegee, a mechanical spray equipment or a combination of both methods (applying an initial coat manually with a squeegee and a secondary coat by spray).

Sealcoat protects the top surface of asphalt, stopping water from seeping down into crevices and gaps. It also guards against oxidation and deterioration resulting from sun exposure. Sealcoats refresh the look of driveways and parking areas by providing a smooth, uniformly black surface that’s suitable for painting lot lines, easy to sweep and helps speed up melting of and ice and snow.

Sealcoats are intended for off-highway usage where there are relatively low motor vehicle speeds and limited turning radiuses like parking lots, schools, service roads etc.

While each Sealcoating Elmhurst job is different, most will generally require two coatings followed by one or two days for curing before motor vehicles and pedestrians are permitted back on the surface.
