Summer is the Best Time to Sealcoat Your Driveway

Why is summer the best time to sealcoat your driveway?

Summer is here, and that means time for all of those home improvement projects you’ve been waiting for. But don’t just look inside your home you should look outside too.  More specifically, look at your driveway.  If it’s been a while since you invested in some maintenance for your driveway, summer is a great time to add a seal coating to protect your asphalt from all of those UV rays and add a little bit of shine back to it.  

Why Should You Sealcoat?

When you seal your asphalt driveway with a sealcoat, you can seal even the smallest cracks, and help keep them from growing larger.  This can add years to the life of your driveway.  Seal coating can also help smooth out those small dips and bumps and give your driveway a beautiful, smooth finish.

Why Summer?

Summertime is hot and sometimes the heat can be extreme.  Putting a sealcoat on your driveway early can help protect it from some of that extreme heat.  Also, summer often brings along some intense rainstorms.  All of that water pressure can take its toll on your driveway.  A sealcoat will protect it from all of that damage. The warm temperatures in the early summer will help the sealcoat dry faster.  If a sealcoat isn’t given adequate time to dry, it can deteriorate much faster.

You Can Save Money on Your Sealcoat

Summer is definitely the best time to sealcoat, and it can also be cheaper.  A lot of people are busy with sports, vacations, and summer camp in summer so sealcoat business takes a bit of a dip.  If you do your research, you may be able to find some pretty good deals during this time.  On the other hand, Fall and Spring are peak times for contractors.  The deals are a bit more difficult to come by during these times due to the high demand.
