Frequently Asked Questions:

Why should I sealcoat my Driveway?

Here’s the bottom line. If your driveway is in good shape (no cracks, weeds or buckling asphalt) sealing may be more cosmetic then functional. However, if your driveway is beginning to crack after a particularly harsh winter, you might consider fixing the cracks and applying a fresh coat of sealant.  Most Canadians endure cold, harsh winters with numerous freeze-thaw cycles followed by heat and humidity in the summer. We at Abercrombie Sealing suggest you seal your driveway every 2-3 years.

What does sealcoating do?

Sealcoating helps protect the underlying pavement from air, sunlight, salts, and petroleum products. It also prevents water from turning hairline cracks into bigger ones. The aggregate in the mix enhances traction, acts as a wear layer, and fills small cracks. Also, sealcoating gives the driveway a uniform black colour.

Does sealcoating fix Cracks?

The sealcoat doesn’t fix cracks in your driveway. This must be done before you apply the sealcoat.

Are Cracks easily Fixed?

If the cracks are minor, the repair process can be as simple as clearing out the debris and broken edges and then filling them with a caulk (a rubbery material that expands and contracts with the weather). The sealant should not be applied until all cracks have been filled.  If the cracks are to large then a cold patch will be needed to repair the crack or hole.

What is a cold Patch?

A cold patch is a cold asphalt repair material that repairs potholes and cracks on roads, bridges, parking lots, driveways and other asphalt and concrete surfaces. This product is unique. It is made from RAP—recycled asphalt pavement—which has been treated so that the hardened asphalt will re-bond when compacted.
