What Is Sealcoating & How Does It Work?
North San Antonio has no shortage of apartments, offices, condos, strip malls, and many other businesses that rely on private roadways and parking lots to serve customers. You need asphalt sealcoating to make a good first impression and prevent minor issues from progressing to significant damage to repair.
Also called pavement sealing, sealcoating is a maintenance coat applied to repair minor cracking, freshen the look of your asphalt, and protect the surface, much like sunscreen protects your skin from UV rays. At Integrity, we follow a careful process to provide customers with quality sealcoating that maximizes the sealing benefits.
- We first clear all debris from the surface, then treat oil spots.
- Next, we apply a primer layer and let it thoroughly dry.
- A one-eighth-inch layer is applied next to create an impenetrable barrier.
- Last, we squeegee extra sealant around the pavement’s perimeter to give the asphalt a clean, finished edge.

Benefits of Sealcoating
The following list of benefits will explain why asphalt sealcoating is key to paving maintenance:
- Pavement is restored to the original rich, black, even color.
- Cleanup becomes more manageable, like with wax polish on a car.
- The coating resists oil and gas spills that weaken asphalt.
- It protects against sun and water damage.
- It slows down the oxidation that causes cracks to form over time.
- Periodic sealcoating is far less expensive than replacing failed pavement.
- The life of your roadway or parking lot is extended by years.

What Happens if You Don’t Seal Coat?
Without sealcoating, your parking lot or roadway will crack, deteriorate, and require replacement years sooner than it would otherwise. Asphalt sealcoating can repair cracks up to one-eighth inches wide, sealing against moisture that would otherwise widen the gaps and erode the sub-base. At your free on-site consultation with Integrity, we assess the condition of your pavement, then recommend the most affordable and protective solutions for maintenance and repair.
Prevent Later Issues With Seal Coat Maintenance
Your first round of sealcoating should be done six to 12 months after pavement installation. After that, new sealant should be applied every four to seven years. Keeping up with pavement coating is essential to protect your investment and avoid unnecessary expenditures to fix avoidable issues.
Pennies spent per square foot on protection will prevent expensive per-square-foot repairs.

Types of Sealcoating
The three main types of sealcoating are coal tar, asphalt emulsions, and acrylics. Our preferred material at Integrity is asphalt emulsion, which is simple to apply and creates a strong and resilient seal. It’s also healthier and better for the environment as it emits fewer VOCs during installation. The particular blend of asphalt emulsion outperforms acrylics, coal tar, and even the asphalt emulsions used by other companies. It features a rubberized hardener that improves adhesion, boosts effectiveness, and reduces drying time by half.

Should you seal coat asphalt in the winter?
Asphalt repairs and maintenance should always be done as soon as possible. However, sealcoating in winter is more expensive and likely to be of lower quality. Successful sealcoating requires an outdoor temperature of over 50 degrees throughout the installation.
Why are asphalt companies so concerned about the weather, even when it isn’t winter?
Many kinds of weather can negatively affect sealcoating, and your asphalt company wants to do a good job. Humidity, for example, can’t be too high during installation because it causes the sealant to take much longer to dry.
