The Benefits of Asphalt Driveway/Parking Lot Sealcoating


Asphalt driveway/parking lot sealing with Eclipse pavement sealer offers many benefits. One of the most obvious is a safe, clean, beautiful surface that will raise the perceived value of property. The main benefit of sealing, however, is protection from the elements. By protecting your driveway or parking lot from the sun, water and chemicals you can greatly extend the life of your pavement. A newly sealed driveway or parking lot can also be easier to keep clean.


UV rays from the sun can increase the rate of deterioration of an asphalt pavement and shorten its life. By sealcoating your driveway or parking lot with Eclipse pavement sealer you can help it resist the damaging effects of the sun and other harsh chemicals emitted from vehicles.


Water is the biggest culprit for damaging asphalt. Water can make its way into even the smallest crack and cause substantial damage. When water seeps into and beneath unsealed asphalt it causes unsealed asphalt pavement to lift and be unstable.
