Driveway Sealing can extend the life of your driveway and protect it from elements that can cause damage over time. Having your driveway sealed every few years or so will also help to beautify the exterior of your home and increase its curb appeal. Elements such as water from rain and snow, harsh sunlight, high traffic, wind, and chemicals can create cracks and holes in your residential driveway causing unsightly eye sores at the entrance of your property. This can also cause potential safety hazards. Not only does driveway sealing provide a neat and clean appearance to the exterior to your house, but keeping your driveway properly sealed will also prevent anyone from injuring themselves by tripping on a pothole, loose asphalt, or a crack.
The cost to seal your driveway depends on several factors including the square footage of your driveway, the materials used, any repairs that are needed prior to the sealant being applied, and the cost of the labor. In addition, the condition of the driveway and how accessible it is also goes into calculating the cost. For example, flat driveways are easier to seal than ones that are on a steep incline. If your driveway is difficult to access, this may also increase labor costs. However, driveway sealing is much more cost effective than replacing your driveway. Having your driveway sealed can go a long way in protecting the integrity of your driveway’s surface, while helping the exterior of your home look its best. It also helps to keep the area safe for you and your family, visitors, or those doing other work on your home or delivering packages.

Sealcoating is the process of applying a layer of protection over your existing asphalt.
Asphalt pavement is made from loose rock, stone, and gravel. Then a material called a binder is mixed in to hold it all together. Maintaining the integrity of this binder over time is important in protecting the integrity of the asphalt so cracks and potholes don’t form. Leaving asphalt unsealed will expose it to rapid deterioration from oxidation and moisture. Sealcoating will also refresh the look of the asphalt by restoring the deep black color. Ensuring a quality professional sealcoat is applied can go a long way in extending the life of the asphalt pavement.
Maintaining a proper sealcoating schedule from a professional is important to reduce the effects from harsh elements like snow, rain, freezing temperatures, high winds, UV light, petroleum-based products, or chemicals. Sealcoating will protect the asphalt from these conditions and is especially important in geographical areas with severe weather. Kleen Seal is a local residential seal coat specialist in your area.
Sealcoating your existing asphalt on a regular schedule ensures a slip resistant surface along with a more beautiful, dark, smooth appearance. Having a well-protected and regularly sealcoated asphalt surface will improve both the look, safety, and wherewithal of your property. This reduces costs over time by preventing the need for replacing the entire surface or having more costly repairs in the future.
Ensuring that a correctly timed maintenance schedule of sealcoating your driveway or parking lot is done can extend the life of your asphalt for up to 30 years! We recommend sealcoating every 2 or 3 years for a driveway that is in decent condition. The occasional sealcoat is much less costly than totally replacing your asphalt. Many homeowners and property managers sealcoat their asphalt pavement to keep the exterior of their property looking its best and decrease the need for asphalt replacement.
There are many benefits to sealcoating. Not only does it create a cleaner and sleeker look to your existing asphalt by restoring the rich black color that has faded over time, but it also provides important functionality. The dark color of the new sealcoat helps to melt snow faster. This not only decreases the chance for cracks and holes to form, but it also creates a safer and less slippery surface.
With that said, it’s important to choose an experienced sealcoating contractor who will be honest and forthright about the job. There are some instances where a good sealcoating may not last that long because the underlying structure of the asphalt is too damaged for spot repairs and sealcoating to be effective. A subpar contractor might tell you that a sealcoating will last longer that it will, causing you to lose money in the long run. By choosing a well-known, experienced, licensed, and insured sealcoating pro that is honest and upfront about your needs, is crucial.

The leading cause of pavement failure is from moisture seeping into the surface through cracks. If cracks are left unfilled, rain and water will get into them, and can lead to the erosion of the base material. By having these cracks filled, it will protect the underlying pavement from this damage. Having the cracks filled and sealed by a local professional, will be most effective in preventing the moisture from entering the cracks therefore reducing damage over time. Crack filling can also help protect the edges of the cracks from increasing and growing or turning into potholes.
Crack filling has numerous benefits. Cracks are the most common type of damage that occurs in asphalt and pavement. Having these cracks filled and sealed is important in delaying further deterioration and protecting the surface from the freeze and thaw cycles from cold New Jersey winter weather. While crack repairs can help protect your asphalt and pavement, they can re-open so regular inspection and maintenance is critical. By finding and using the same reliable contractor to continue to conduct your pavement inspection maintenance will help maximize cost effectiveness. They will have a good understanding of the history and condition of your asphalt and can better assist you in protecting it over time.
If possible, get any asphalt cracks filled when they are small. This will slow the cracks from growing and minimize any additional damage from occurring. By hiring a professional and experienced, local contractor to conduct a proper inspection and fill the cracks with quality material, you can reduce the need for larger repairs or total asphalt replacement in the future.
It is also a needed step in preparing your asphalt or pavement for sealing or seal coating. First the surface needs to be cleaned and prepped. Use a contractor with commercial grade equipment to properly ensure a clean surface. The next step is to repair any defects. This includes crack filling. A material will be poured into the crack to ensure that it’s not exposed to moisture. Having an water-tight seal in the crack will protect the underlying pavement. Once any asphalt cracks are filled, you can rest assured the surface is well prepared for the coming winter months.
By using a local, licensed, insured, and reputable crack filling company in your area, you can avoid costly mistakes and ensure that your asphalt surface is repaired and protected properly. Having cracks in your asphalt driveway filled on a regular basis will ensure long term damage is delayed, along with the cost of having to replace your entire driveway. Crack filling is an important part of preventing pavement failure. Sticking to a regular pavement maintenance plan and schedule not only saves money in the long run but it also creates a more beautiful and safe appearance to the exterior of your residence.
Asphalt repair is the process of filling, sealing, and repairing any cracks or potholes that have formed on your driveway or other pavement.
New Jersey weather is well known for having a lot of moisture. We have cold winters with temperatures below freezing at times. The spring season brings rain and a lot of dampness. Summers are humid and the fall can be wet as well. Moisture is the number one enemy of asphalt pavement and your driveway’s integrity. Asphalt repair and maintenance can prevent damage to your driveway and protect it from the effects of our harsh New Jersey weather.
Asphalt repair is the process of filling, sealing, and repairing any cracks or potholes that have formed on your driveway or other pavement. These holes and cracks can not only be unsafe, but they lower the value of your property and just look unattractive. If you let these potholes and cracks go without repairing them, eventually the damage will be too severe to the underlying base structure, and you will need an enormously costly total replacement. A regular schedule of inspection and recommended asphalt repair can extend the life of the asphalt and protect it from further damage. This will lower your overall costs and keep the surface of your asphalt smooth and safe for others.
Potholes can form due to fatigue cracks. Fatigue cracks can arise and form in a pattern called, ‘alligator cracking’. The material between these cracks becomes loose and creates a large hole, known as a pothole. Potholes can damage vehicles and be unsafe for people. Potholes can also grow and expose the underlying base materials to suffer damage due to moisture. Asphalt repair addresses this type of damage by filling and sealing the pothole correctly with materials that are meant to reduce further damage and prepare the surface for any additional work such as sealcoating.
Stains on the asphalt are also considered in need of repair. Certain petroleum-based products can also damage asphalt and look unsightly. Especially when applying sealcoating or sealing your driveway, preparation of stains is an important step following the cleaning process. Stains should be treated so that the sealcoat or filling material can adhere properly.
Asphalt repair is part of a preventative asphalt maintenance plan. Preventing severe damage before it starts can save you a lot of money. By using Kleen Seal, a reputable and experienced professional asphalt repair contractor, you can ensure that everything is being done to protect your driveway the right way. Once an asphalt surface is installed, it can quickly become weak and unattractive due to oxidation. This leaves the surface vulnerable to moisture and other damaging elements. Ensuring your asphalt surface is properly sealed and repaired as soon as possible is also crucial in maintaining the curb appeal and value of your property.
Kleen Seal can repair your asphalt before it becomes an asphalt replacement project. You can save money and a lot of headaches by using Kleen Seal, an asphalt repair specialist! Contact Kleen Seal today for a free estimate to repair your asphalt.
There are many different types of materials and methods that can be used for repairing asphalt damage like cracks and potholes. It’s important that the company you use to do your asphalt repair job provides a proper inspection of the damage and recommends the correct materials and methods for the job. Depending on the extent of the damage, the geographical area the job is in, and any potential underlying structural issues, the recommendations should fit your needs correctly.
While having your asphalt repaired is less expensive than a full replacement, cost should not be the only deciding factor. Choosing a company that offers the lowest estimate can be dangerous. It’s critically important that you use a company that does not cut corners. Companies that charge too little can do so by doing things like diluting materials or using unskilled or uninsured labor. This may cost less in the short-term, but you risk a much greater potential expense in the future.
