Seal Coating and Striping

Asphalt Seal Coat is designed to protect asphalt pavements from the damaging effects of the environment, including moisture, pollutants, and oxidation.

Seal Coating also minimizes raveling (the loss of aggregate) and fills minor voids in the surface. Other benefits include creating a uniform color and appearance for all paved asphalt surfaces. Seal Coats make a smooth and attractive surface that resists aging and protects the valuable pavement.

It is not uncommon to fill cracks in the asphalt with hot rubberized crack fill or cold pour prior to the application of a seal coat. However, crack fill is a temporary fix and will sink. Pavements that exhibit extensive cracking, base failure, or severe surface raveling will not significantly benefit from Seal Coating.

Normal curing time is 24 hours for moderate temperature and humidity conditions. Drying time may need to be extended when the asphalt is cold or in the shade. Minimum application temperature is 55 degrees. It is sometimes recommended that (2) coats be applied. As the initial surface preparation and edge work make up the majority of the cost of the first application, adding a second layer is economical and increases overall durability. To reduce long-term maintenance expenses, industry experts recommend that pavement be Seal Coasted every three to four years, depending on traffic and overall condition.

New traffic paint (striping) is then applied to define traffic patterns, designated parking areas, etc. AMS Paving Inc. provides all of your signage needs as well. Whether it be “No Parking," “Parking By Permit Only,” or custom signage, we will work with you to create and install your signs.

It is important to mention that in most Reserve Studies, the removal and replacement of the asphalt is calculated with the life of the asphalt being 25 – 30 years depending on the original design. It is also important to note that most Reserve Studies base the life of the asphalt on doing preventative seal coating and other repairs as required in order to preserve the asphalt in the best way possible.
