How Seal Coating Works

Seal Coating in New Orleans From Big Easy AsphaltMake a resilient surface of your pavement in New Orleans with seal coating. It is one of the best and highly effective methods that we do as a professional seal coating company to protect your driveway or walkway pavement from a plethora of weather conditions.

The seal coating products we use fills surface damage and provide a protective layer to your pavement from damaging UV rays, vehicle fluids, and water.  This type of protection happens because seal coating can slow down oxidation when it fills the hairline cracks of a concrete or asphalt pavement. Seal coating is composed of fillers, usually sand, which are minute particles that can fill in minute cracks.

Types of Seal Coating in New Orleans

For every seal coating project for a driveway or any surface, we offer four types of seal coating products.

  1. Coal Tar Sealers – These seal coats are relatively cheaper but will require more maintenance once it is applied.  However, it provides the best protection against fuel and chemical spills on the surface of your pavement.
  2. Asphalt Emulsion Coatings – This type of seal coating is easier to apply and relatively safer to apply because it emits fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  3. Acrylic Sealers – These are environmentally-friendly sealers made with acrylic and polymers. They are also much more expensive but are safer to use.
  4. Fast-dry Sealers – These are best used for pavements that carry foot traffic. Surfaces are ready to use after an hour of application for foot traffic and 1 day for vehicle traffic.

We use the best seal coating products in the industry that have higher levels of solids in the product. You are assured that they are the higher quality sealants that will provide maximum protection for your pavement.

How Often to Seal Coat Your Pavement in New Orleans

The best way to keep your seal-coated pavement functioning and looking well is to apply a seal coat one year after the initial pavement has been installed. This will allow the pavement to properly cure for a seal coat application. After the initial application, you can apply succeeding seal coats every two to three years for normal use.  If your pavement goes through heavy traffic, it is recommended that seal coats are applied every year.

The work Big Easy Asphalt did for me was quick and efficient. They put down a nice layer of asphalt so my dad’s tractors have more space, which means he can store things inside without worrying about them being covered by dirt or grasses! The guy who did the job kept me updated throughout every step in order to make sure everything went smoothly. Highly recommended!
