The seal coating process involves applying an even protective material to the surface of the asphalt pavement.

The process is similar to applying paint on the woods of a house. The sealer material used is made from a watery mixture of water, mineral fillers, emulsified asphalt and to some extent additives such as modified polymer and latex which have been designed to increase the drying process of the sealer. When applying the sealer on the surface of the pavement, mechanical spray, broom or rubber squeegee is used.
What the sealcoating material does is to prevent water from penetrating the surface of the pavement, thus cutting out wear and oxidation which occurs when water, air and sunlight beats a pavement surface. Though seal coating won’t improve the structure of a pavement, it improves the aesthetic feel of the pavement by making the surface of the pavement smooth enough to receive painting and sweeping.
Sealcoating is meant for off-highway pavement such as driveways and parking lots which receive minimal volume of traffic and light turning radius.
Sealcoating differs greatly from slurry seal which is a technologically advanced process which makes use of large quantity to course and aggregate filler, specifically designed for roads and areas which will receive large volume of high speed traffic.

Everything about their crew is professional.
My pavement had several areas where the asphalt had severe cracks and needed to be fixed fast. Cortes gave me a detailed estimate with a competitive price. The work was completed to perfection! All I have to say is these guys are professional.
