The difference between Resurfacing or Sealcoating Asphalt
Resurfacing or Overlaying your driveway is usually done every 15-20 years. This process involves adding a second laying of asphalt on your existing pavement usually between 1.5 to 2 inches thick.
This process will give you a new driveway without all the pitfalls of removing and replacing the entire driveway. This is a very cost-effective way to redo your driveway without having to replace the driveway but requires that the initial asphalt be in relatively good shape and was prepared correctly without any drainage issues.
SEALCOATING or RESEALING blacktop asphalt ,on the other hand, is usually done every 4-5 years to maintain an already well laid asphalt driveway. Sealcoating the asphalt, provides a wearing surface and prevents water from seeping down to the base material. The dark black color of newly applied sealcoat improves the appearance of new and old asphalt, making your driveway look near brand new. Some other benefits of sealcoating are that it helps protect the asphalt from the sun (slows oxidation) well as the harmful effects of chemical spills such as oil and gasoline on a driveway. Asphalt sealcoating keeps your new pavement clean by filling in the small voids in the asphalt.
New Driveway Installation – Besides these two above options there is always the ultimate choice of the new Asphalt driveway. A new asphalt driveway will definitely improve your curb appeal and add value to your home. A well designed and installed asphalt driveway will last for approximately 20 years.
