Help Your Asphalt Survive Winter Weather with Sealcoating
Sealcoating your asphalt pavement for winter is the best way to help your driveway or parking lot survive. Winters in Christiansburg, VA, or the surrounding region aren’t as bad as our northern neighbors, but they can be very harsh. Conditions in Southwestern Virginia can include snow, ice, rain, bitter-cold winds, sleet, hail, sun, and other nasty weather.
No matter how well we install asphalt, it is a porous material that can allow water under its surface. If your asphalt surface has tiny cracks, they could turn into potholes before spring comes if you don’t perform sealcoating. So, it’s a good idea to perform sealcoating in the fall.
Protect Your Parking Lots and Driveways Against the Cold Weather
Asphalt parking lots and driveways are similar to people in the way they age. As they get older, driveways and parking lots wear out, and can eventually break down due to normal wear and tear. If you are bundling up during the winter, think of what your asphalt is experiencing in December, January, and February.
If you want to keep your parking lot or driveway in good shape, you should have Paving Plus do sealcoating in the fall. We’ve affordably sealed many driveways and parking lots before winter starts. Our paving team uses the highest quality materials and our expertise in fall sealcoating.
Rain, Snow, and Ice Take Their Toll in Southwest Virginia
Rain, sun, snow, ice, and even salt can take their toll on pavements in and around Christiansburg, VA. Over time, as rain falls on a parking lot or driveway, the water weakens the bond between the asphalt binder and aggregates. When your pavement cracks, it becomes vulnerable to the weather conditions, especially rain. Sealcoating a parking lot or driveway in the fall helps stop water from penetrating the asphalt all winter long.
Pre-Winter Sealcoating Protects Your Asphalt Pavement Against:
- Chemical Spills
Sealcoating Prevents Melting Snow and Ice from Damaging Asphalt
Our sealcoating prevents damaging water from melting snow and ice from draining down to the base material. Fall sealcoating also helps protect asphalt from the sun as well as the harmful effects of oil and gasoline spills. You might not know that replacing or installing new pavement is more costly than regular sealcoating.
When Paving Plus does sealcoating, we seal the small cracks that can turn into large cracks. You won’t have to worry about the blacktop becoming dry and brittle. The top surface layer won’t erode, and small cracks won’t appear on the blacktop surface.
