Protect your investment and prolong the life of your asphalt by resealing it regularly.
New asphalt should be sealed one to two years after it’s installed. This gives the asphalt time to cure and seals in the oils and tars that give asphalt the flexibility to withstand traffic and the elements. While sealer is not a substitute for major asphalt repairs, resealing every two to three years will help prevent surface deterioration.
Proper preparation is key because asphalt sealer will not adhere to dirty or oily surfaces. We clean the asphalt by using forced air and sweeping it with wire brooms. This loosens dirt and debris lodged in the pores of the asphalt that might cause the sealer to fail.
While there are many types and grades of asphalt sealers on the market today, we use Star Seal. As with any other coating, asphalt sealers are easily modified after purchase. Therefore, it’s important to mix the asphalt sealer with the proper ratio of sand and water. Unfortunately, some contractors water down sealers prior to application, causing poor adhesion and/or premature wear. At Buckeye Asphalt Maintenance & Sealcoating, we guarantee your sealers will be mixed and installed in accordance with the specific Star Seal standards.

We have used them for several of our rental properties. Each time we've used them they have been reliable, awesome to work with, and far below the rest in price. We will continue to use them hands down.
