The appearance of your driveway can have a negative or positive influence on your house. If the driveway is free of debris, black and smooth one can only expect your home’s interior to be clean and well maintained. Driveways that are cracked, filled with potholes and discolored have a negative impact on your home’s value. If your driveway is beginning to get a bit worn, contact Sealcoating Chandler. We have the team, equipment and tools to get the job done. Give us a call for a free site assessment before your driveway requires more than a simple sealcoat.
Free Site Assessment
Contact us for a free site assessment when you’re not sure which direction to turn. If you are uncertain whether you need a new driveway installation, resurface or sealant, a site assessment will come in handy. We will determine the age of the pavement, how this particular asphalt has performed, the current thickness and how well a sealcoat will bond to the existing surface. An expert will evaluate cost related factors, like how long you expect to own the house. A sales representative will determine if the driveway is affecting your home’s overall value. During this consultation we will also examine hidden problems, future issues, safety matters and structural enhancements.
Sealcoating Provides Protection
Sealcoating protects driveways from the sun, and moisture. When asphalt is exposed to intense sunlight it has the propensity to oxidize. When asphalt oxidizes, it cracks and turns grey. Moisture is like kryptonite to asphalt. Too much water will impact the foundation of this very porous material. Oils, anti-freeze and other vehicle solutions are bound to spill and drip onto your driveway’s surface. Anti-freeze will penetrate the surface and break down asphalt molecules. Over time, the gradual deterioration will result in cracks and potholes. A proper sealcoating applied at regular intervals will keep your driveway safe from chemical solutions and compounds. This rule of thumb is also applied to parking lot repair projects as well.
Sealcoating Enhances Your Driveway
A beautiful driveway and garage can increase your home’s value. This is particularly important if you are considering applying for a home equity line of credit. The more your home is worth translates directly to the loan award amount. The increase in home value will work in your favor when you are ready to sell your home. No matter how beautiful your home and garden is, if your driveway is a wreck, it will have a negative influence on people’s perception and value of your home. Since your house is the most expensive investment you will ever have, it makes perfect sense to maintain it.
Sealcoating Extends The Life of Your Driveway
An asphalt driveway is expected to last ten to thirty years. You can get a good 40 years out of your driveway if you maintain it properly. Asphalt driveways can be compared to the care of your teeth. If you go to the dentist for your annual checkup, brush and floss twice daily, more than likely you will have your teeth for your entire lifespan. Failure to go to the dentist regularly will absolutely guarantee that the only time you step foot inside a dentist’s office is when you experience pain. Don’t wait to care for your driveway. If you do, the situation will exacerbate beyond a simple sealcoat and require a complete demolition and re-install.
