Paving is a relatively expensive investment, one that Arlington home and business owners will likely want to maximize and protect against damage. Weather, heavy vehicles, motor oil leaks, oxidation, UV rays, and water can all wreak havoc on your asphalt driveways, parking lots, roads, and more.
At NVM Paving, we know the paving process from start to finish — including how to stop damaging elements in their tracks. The simple sealcoating process can protect your paved surfaces from harmful everyday occurrences, helping you get the longest possible lifespan out of your asphalt surface.

What is Sealcoating?
When you want to add a protective layer to your asphalt pavement to help stop damage and deterioration, sealcoating is the way to go. Asphalt is constantly being bombarded by harmful environmental factors, including:
- Sunlight and UV rays, which break down the bonds that hold asphalt together
- Moisture that causes cracks and warping through erosion, freezing and thawing
- Gas and oils that leak from cars
- Extra-heavy vehicles parking or driving on it
A sealcoat that is properly applied adds an extra layer between your paved surface and the elements working to damage it, creating a barrier like hardwood finish protects wood floors. Best of all, the process can increase the lifespan of your pavement by decades.
The Sealcoating Process
Sealcoating an existing asphalt project is most effective in the spring when temperatures are milder, but it can be accomplished during any relatively warm time of year. The process involves one of several types of sealants, chosen based on your project’s scope and needs, and must be allowed to completely cure before driving or walking on your pavement’s surface.
NVM has been managing sealcoating and other aspects of asphalt paving, repair, and maintenance for years. Our bonded, licensed, and insured professionals are ready to help you with your residential or commercial asphalt project.

When It’s Time to Sealcoat
If you’ve recently invested in fresh asphalt paving, or see your legacy paved surfaces breaking down, becoming warped, falling apart, swelling, thinning around the edges, or otherwise taking on some significant wear and tear, it’s likely time to sealcoat.
Preventative efforts always work better early on, so the sooner you sealcoat, the better off you’ll be. It can be reapplied every few years, too, ensuring your protective barrier stays strong and lowering the overall expenses involved in asphalt repairs and maintenance.
