Pickens Construction has explained the importance of sealcoating an asphalt surface on its website. The company has posted a blog article on its website highlighting all the benefits of asphalt sealcoating including pavement protection, durability and longevity, aesthetic appeal, and to trap the sun's heat.

Anderson, SC -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/23/2018 -- Pickens Construction has explained why asphalt sealing or sealcoating is important on its website. In an article published in its blog, the company has stated that sealcoating protects asphalt surfaces from water, sunlight, and oils. It also enhances the beauty of the asphalt surface and prolongs the lifespan of these surfaces.

According to Pickens Construction, asphalt sealing is one of the most important post-construction activities. The company claims that this is a critical preventative maintenance measure. Pickens Construction has expressed these views in a post shared in the blog section of its website. Similar sentiments are featured in the "Asphalt Sealing" section on the company's website. Pickens Construction starts the blog post by explaining that sealcoating is the process of applying a protective sealant coat on an asphalt pavement, roadway, driveway, or parking lot.

This sealant should not be applied immediately after installation of the asphalt surface. Sealing the asphalt too soon after it has been laid can actually be harmful. Sealing it too late can be even worse. And, of course, neglecting to have it sealed on a regular basis can greatly decrease the lifespan of the asphalt. Asphalt should be sealed within a year after it has been laid, but not within the first three months. This will give the asphalt enough time to dry and set. After the first year, asphalt will need to be resealed every two years, for best results.

Pickens Construction offers several reasons why asphalt sealcoating is important. Sealing — also known as sealcoating — will protect the asphalt from sunlight, water, and other harmful elements. If asphalt is not properly sealed, it will crack and break much more easily. Not only does sealing help the asphalt last longer; it also helps it look better, giving it a distinct black shine. Asphalt sealing also enables the asphalt surface to trap more heat and hence melt snow faster. Further details can be found at
