The Process

Driveway Asphalt Sealing Costs

Experts You Can Count On

Driveways are susceptible to damage because they are made of asphalt, sand and stone. The asphalt dries out in the sun and your driveway can become cracked. Driveway sealing can help to stop this from happening. The driveway repair, paving & sealing experts at Action Home Services will be able to seal your driveway so that you don’t need to worry about cracks forming in the future.

Many homeowners don’t always realize this, but there are many different types of sealants out there, so you won’t always know what type a landscaping company is using. Here at AHS, we use an oil-based sealant that is resistant to oil, gasoline and salt. It is composed of liquid asphalt, sand, solvents, tar and petroleum. Some will notice that these ingredients can also been found in asphalt – this is what makes our sealant the best!

Frequently Asked Questions

About Our Driveway Sealing, Repair, Paving & Crack Filling Services

Why Should I Seal My Driveway?

Every driveway is eventually going to need repair or replacement – but those that are left unmaintained for extended amounts of time are going to have to be repaired and replaced much faster (and more frequently).

Thankfully, though, homeowners and business owners willing to invest a little in regular maintenance (like asphalt sealing) will be able to avoid having to repair or replace their driveway anytime soon.

In fact, it’s not at all unreasonable to double the lifespan of your asphalt driveway with sealant applied every 12 to 36 months.

Stay on top of this and you’ll guarantee that your driveway not only looks brand-new (even if it is a decade or more old) but maintains its integrity and adds value to your residential or commercial property, too.

Here are just a couple of the big benefits you’ll enjoy when you take advantage of asphalt sealant services like the ones we provide here at Action Home Services!

When is the Best Time Sealing for Your Driveway?

Sealing your driveway properly is a great way to protect your residential or commercial property and prevent erosion and UV damage that can destroy your driveway faster than you would have thought possible.

At the same time, though, you want to be careful about when you schedule this kind of work.

Schedule it for the wrong time of year and the sealant won’t stick, won’t bond, and won’t be able to provide the extra layer of protection you are expecting. And then you’ll have to put the bill to remove the sealant and start all over again!

Here at Action Home Services we know how important it is to time a sealing project to get the best possible results.

Warm, Dry Weather is Best

One of the biggest advantages of a properly sealed driveway is that it’s going to be able to shed water much more effectively.

There’s nothing that deteriorates a driveway faster than water, and even just the occasional rainstorm every now and again on an unprotected driveway can cause extreme damage and erosion – more than you would probably expect.

Combine that with water working its way into the sub layers of your driveway because of cracks in the surface and then freezing over the winter and you’re talking about a recipe for disaster.

Warm (but not hot), dry weather is best for this kind of work because it allows the sealant product to work itself deeper and deeper into the asphalt itself.

That kind of weather is going to be just warm enough to let the sealant fully spread everywhere, and if it’s followed by drive cool nights they’ll be plenty of time for the asphalt sealant to cure and harden in place without being hurried along.

Plan for Late Spring and Early Fall Whenever Possible

If at all possible, try and schedule this kind of project for late spring and early summer or late summer and early fall.

You want to try and avoid the wet season of early spring, not just because of the water that will be held in the ground from the snow melting in our area but also because of the springtime rainstorms that are so common.

Shoot for May or June and you’ll be able to avoid a lot of those rainstorms while at the same time getting the dry, warm days that aren’t scorching hot – days that still have relatively cool nights that allow the product to cure in place.

If your schedule doesn’t allow for a May or June project it’s a good idea to push this until late summer and early fall.

Real late August and throughout the month of September generally have the same kind of weather conditions you’re looking for as May and June, allowing you to knock this kind project out without a lot of headache and without a lot of hassle.

At the end of the day, you’ll want to talk to professionals like the ones we employed here at Action Home Services to find the right time of year to tackle this kind of project.

We’ll be able to find the perfect two or three day window of time to get this project done for you (and get it done right), providing your driveway with that extra armor and that extra layer of protection from wind, weather, and water that would otherwise look to compromise your driveway from inside out.

How to Protect my Driveway from Water Damage?

Nothing will destroy your driveway faster than water damage.

Water finds a way to work itself into every nook and cranny, and even the most perfectly smooth asphalt driveways have a porous surface for water to weasel its way into.

A couple of rainstorms every now and again generally won’t cause that much damage on their own. But add in the fact that we are driving on our driveways all the time and parking heavy cars on them overnight and you have a combination of factors that are working to destroy your driveway pretty much around-the-clock.

By keeping on top of your driveway sealant maintenance (sealing your driveway every year to every three years or so) you block water from working into your driveway, causing cracks and fissures, and then making things worse when the water freezes in the winter and splits things even further.

How to Guard my Driveway Against UV Damage?

UV damage from the sun beating down every day is also going to do a number on your driveway.

The chances are pretty good that you’ve seen what a brand-new asphalt driveway looks like compared to one that is even just a handful of years old.

New driveways are deep black, almost purple, from the fresh asphalt whereas older driveways that have been exposed to a lot of UV damage are a faded sort of dull gray.

Well, aside from the cosmetic changes, the UV damage also does a number on the asphalt itself.

The asphalt material becomes compromised over time and weakened by this UV damage. That allows water to work even faster to destroy your driveway when left unprotected.

Sealing your driveway regularly adds a protective layer against that UV damage, allowing your driveway to “heal” itself at the same time.

How to Seal Away Oil and Fluid Spills?

Try as hard as you like, but it’s impossible to wash away oil and other automotive fluids that inevitably leak out of our vehicles onto our driveway.

Even if you move quickly and either spray the driveway down to dilute those fluids and get them off of your driveway in a hurry or use “quick dry” sand or something similar, you’re still going to have to worry about the fluids that penetrated the upper layer of your driveway.

The cosmetic stains on your driveway surface may not bother you that much, but what about the dangers and risks those fluids suspended in the surface (and impossible to clean) pose to your pets and children?

Sealing over those oil and fluid spills guarantees that those issues are locked away permanently. You add a physical topcoat over those fluid spills and prevent them from being able to harm anyone or anything once and for all.

How to Enhance the Look of Your Driveway (And Value of Your Home)?

Lastly, asphalt sealant applied to your driveway is always going to give it a new, fresh look – and that’s going to boost your curb appeal and your property value!

Best of all, asphalt sealant isn’t a very expensive bit of home maintenance to tackle every now and again but it adds a tremendous amount of value to your home all the same.

Combine that with all the other benefits you’ll enjoy (benefits we highlighted above) and this maintenance becomes a bit of a no-brainer.

How much does it cost to seal a driveway?
✓ 1 Car Driveway Cost $120 (400 SqFt)
✓ 2 Car Driveway Cost $180 (600 SqFt)
✓ 4 Car Driveway Cost $220 (730 SqFt)
✓ FREE Estimate (647) 812-7845

The main factor involved in determining the cost of asphalt driveway sealing is the volume of cars on your property, the layout and size of the pathway.

Other factors might be the surface preparation time, including any pre-existing damages that we have to take care, the material, and the time of the year.
