Asphalt Sealing~Asphalt Sealing Carleton Place
Finally spring has arrived, I didn't think it was going to come, longest winter ever. Having that type of winter, we highly recommend doing a complete clean and filling of any cracks that occurred over the winter. Ottawa winters put a lot of stress to your driveway, from sand, salt and freeze and thaw cycle. I see driveway sealing as a preventive maintenance plan.
Filling of any cracks with our rubberized formula is crucial, it prevents water from seeping thru the crack and getting underneath creating a pocket and eroding the rock. Filling in the cracks prevents sinking of asphalt and slowing down the crack from expanding.
Water and oil spills are the enemy to your driveway, Our oil base product from http://www.mcasphalt.com is by far the most superior from repelling oil and water. Our driveway is made up of oil and rock (bitumen) so it would only make sense to use an oil base product. It absorbs into the pores of your driveway, unlike any acrylic product which sits on top and "caps" your driveway.
With our 5 step process, we treat all driveways like it's our own, we take the time and patience to get it right and assure there is no over spray, giving you a sharp clean look.

Why we use an oil-base sealant ?
Oil-based sealants have been the preferred choice for sealing driveways for several reasons. Unlike acrylic sealants, oil-based sealants provide better protection and longevity to asphalt surfaces, making them a popular choice among homeowners.
One of the major benefits of using oil-based sealants is their ability to penetrate deeper into the surface, providing greater protection against water and other environmental elements. This can help extend the life of the driveway and prevent cracking and fading.
Another advantage of using oil-based sealants is their durability. They are more resistant to UV rays, which can cause discoloration and fading, as well as to wear and tear from heavy traffic. This means that an oil-based sealant will last longer and require fewer reapplications, saving homeowners time and money in the long run.
Oil-based sealants are also more flexible than acrylic sealants, allowing them to expand and contract with temperature changes without cracking. This makes them ideal for use in climates with extreme temperature fluctuations, such as hot summers and cold winters.
Finally, oil-based sealants are easy to apply and provide a smooth, consistent finish. This results in a professional-looking, attractive driveway that will enhance the look of any home.
In conclusion, the use of an oil-based sealant by Zeal-Tek Driveway Sealing provides numerous benefits over acrylic sealants, including deeper penetration, greater durability, flexibility, and ease of application. Whether you're looking to extend the life of your driveway or simply improve its appearance, oil-based sealants are an excellent choice.

How long will the driveway remain black after the seal ?

The driveway sealing will remain a matte black for two years, we use a #3 tip allowing a thicker coat with out visual overlaps.
Hope this helps
Thanks a lot
