We Pride Ourselves on Neatness, Even for the Toughest Job.
I have been sealcoating for over 27 years. The majority of my clients are repeat customers and have been with me for over 2 decades. All my residential work is brush applied. My customers will tell you that my most consistent personal quality is that I am honest. If your driveway is not ready for sealcoating, I will tell you. I am not looking for a quick dollar, I am looking for long-term customers, and to provide quality work.
Myths About Sealcoating
False – The best time of sealcoat is when the air temperatures are between 70 and 90 degrees.
True – I have tried applying sealer many different ways and I have come to the conclusion that brushing lasts longer and gives a more uniform look across the asphalt.
False – There are several different types of sealers and different degrees of quality. Store bough sealers do not last; no matter what the can says. A lot of the “door to door” sealcoaters push a product that the manufacturer does not even consider a sealer.
False – On average, sealcoating should be done about every 4-6 years depending on wear and tear.
True, but why? – Most homeowners do it themselves to save money, which is usually only about 35% savings. When you factor in the cost of materials and supplies, the time spent doing it, and having to sealcoat more frequently the savings quickly vanish. Also you risk ruining clothing and shoes, or injuring your back. In addition, you may have to listen to your significant other complain about the brush marks you left behind or that it does not look good because of the splatter marks. Lastly, to finish the project you would need to dispose of any extra materials properly. Doesn’t seem worth the 35% savings, does it?
Why should I sealcoat my driveway?

How often should you sealcoat?
