Sealcoating, a thin liquid layer added over an asphalt paved surface to protect from damage caused by UV rays, rain, snow, as well as fluids from vehicles. Sealcoating won’t erase cracks, but will help prevent cracks from forming and defend against damaging elements. Professionally applied asphalt sealer is key to extend the life of existing asphalt paving.
