Do you Need to Sealcoat Your Driveway?
Did you know that to save money in the long run on your driveway, you have to keep up with sealcoating it now? Davis Construction knows about asphalt and sealcoating services, especially here in the Pittsburgh area, where the freeze does major damage to our roads and driveways. It is important to have a reputable estimator come out and look at your driveway and let you know what you need to prevent any more damage from occurring. We can do that! Let’s talk about the finer points of sealcoating so you can make an educated decision on what to do.
Sealcoating services should be completed by a reputable contractor. Call around and find someone that you trust. Never, ever let someone stop by your house that “was just in the neighborhood” and offer you a great price. These sealants are most likely watered down, substandard quality, and will not protect your driveway, plus you will have a difficult time getting in touch with these people in the future if there is a problem. Also, the do-it-yourself sealants sitting on your local hardware store shelves are formulated to sit on the shelf for an extended period of time. This can cause major problem for you when you attempt to apply it and sometimes, a contractor will have a difficult time cleaning up this problem. It is best to get the job done right; it will save you money in the long run. Davis Construction can help with sealcoating services in the Pittsburgh area!
There are municipalities that will not allow for a concrete driveway to extend to the roadway and because of this, a short asphalt approach is necessary. Due to weather, both the white of the concrete and the black asphalt will fade to gray. No kind of sealant will bring the concrete back to its white color so when you get the asphalt resealed, the difference will be quite noticeable. This is just part of having a concrete driveway which in turn will last for a long time with proper maintenance.
Davis Construction cannot stress enough that the extreme cold in the Pittsburgh area will do damage to your driveway and that sealcoating service to your driveway is the best way to prevent having to install a brand new driveway sooner than necessary.
