How Long Does Sealcoating Last?

Individuals who are debating sealcoating their asphalt usually want to know how long the process will last before it has to be completed again.  The answer depends on a variety of factors that impact the longevity of your asphalt surface such as how often it is maintained, the weather it is exposed to, how often it is used, and much more. The good news for those who are asking this question is that if you take proper care of your asphalt surface and have it sealcoated early on in its life the process will last much longer, and it keeps your asphalt in top condition for years to come.

Regular Maintenance following sealcoating is one of the biggest factors that affects the lifespan of an asphalt surface. There is maintenance that needs to be performed on the surface when called for such as sweeping away any debris or foreign contaminants. In addition to regular sweeping, it is recommended to pressure clean the surface every year in areas where mildew, mud, or other contaminants that the regular sweepings cannot take care of. Constant moisture damages your pavement.

Although extremely durable, asphalt is not indestructible and needs proper maintenance. As with anything that is subject to be outside during all of mother nature’s elements, it is susceptible to extreme weather conditions from the hot and cold as well as wet and dry weather. Each type of weather will affect the asphalt in its own unique way. For instance, colder weather can lead to severe cracking within asphalt surface due to repetitive freezing and thawing over time. Whereas on the other hand, very hot weather can promote fading and work to deteriorate the asphalt’s surface. This can be problematic for sports surfaces such as Tennis, Basketball and Pickleball Courts.
