Seal Coating

How often should asphalt be seal coated?

For a driveway or parking lot, we recommend re-coating every 3-5 years for optimal performance and longevity. For sports surfaces (tennis courts, running tracks, etc.) we recommend re-surfacing every 6-8 years. These service intervals can vary based on use, weather conditions, and other factors.​

How long should I wait before walking or driving on a surface after it is seal coated?

It can take 24 to 48 hours for a seal coating to cure completely, depending on weather conditions. In sunny, hot conditions the curing time will likely be closer to 24 hours, but in cloudy, cooler temperatures it might take closer to 48 hours. Expect to see some tire marks, possibly for several weeks, after sealcoating is done. This is especially true in the heat of summer. This is normal and they will go away on their own. If crack sealant has been applied to your driveway, it will be visible through the seal coating. Do not turn your wheels while your car is sitting still. Power steering will tear the sealer film.

How can I prolong the appearance of my newly coated driveway?
  • Sweep and clean any types of chemical spills on your driveway to avoid staining.
  • Sweep and clean excess gravel, dirt of stones to prevent premature wear.
  • Snowplows and chains will mark or scratch the surface. Try to be mindful of this while removing snow.
How does rain affect seal coating?

When scheduling services in advance, we cannot guarantee the future weather will always cooperate. We will use our best judgement and experience to determine if the weather will affect the coating. The final decision will be made on the day of the scheduled service. Our sealer has fast drying additives which assist in the curing time. As long as the sealer is dry to the touch, rain will not affect the finished product.

How soon can striping be painted on a newly seal coated lot?

If curing additives are used in the sealer, parking lot striping can be done the same day.

Do you do snow removal?


Sports Surfaces

How often does my tennis court need to be resurfaced?

It depends on the asphalt’s condition. The color system should be redone every 6-8 years.

How long do I have to wait to play on my newly coated sports surface?

Usually 24 hours.

Can I use the court for a purpose other than what it was designed for?

We recommend it be used for the purpose of the design.  You can choose a multiuse court design, which uses a different coating system.
