Alpha Paving sealcoating

What Is Sealcoating?

Sealcoating provides pavements with a protective shield against oxidation, water penetration, and harsh weather conditions. This prolongs their lifespan by slowing down the deterioration process.

How Frequently Is Sealcoating Required?

Sealcoating is necessary when:
The pavement is old or in poor condition
The pavement is used frequently
Local climate and weather conditions cause wear and tear

Reactive vs. Proactive Maintenance

Reactive Maintenance

While initially cheaper, reactive maintenance is costlier over time. Here’s why it falls short compared to preventative maintenance:

Preventative Maintenance

Although it may seem pricier upfront, preventative maintenance reduces long-term costs by minimizing the need for repairs and replacements over time. Here’s why it’s better for your pavement and your budget:

The Process


We remove dirt, vegetation, and debris to ensure a clean surface for proper sealcoat adhesion. We also fix cracks and potholes to strengthen the foundation, preventing future water damage.

Edge and Tape

We tape off surrounding areas that don’t require sealcoating, such as concrete curbs and nearby structures.

Sealcoat Application

Using either a spray system or squeegee, we apply coal-tar-based or asphalt-based emulsion material to the pavement. The right method depends on the area’s size and condition.

Coating Application

We apply a uniform layer of sealant to the surface. We determine the desired thickness based on manufacturer recommendations, typically ranging from 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch.

Drying & Curing

The sealant is left to dry and cure for 12 to 36 hours. Dry time depends on the humidity level and ambient temperature.

Striping and Markings

Once the sealant has fully cured, we reapply lane markings, parking lines, and other pavement markings to ensure clear delineation that enhances safety.
