Baltimore Asphalt Contractor: Is Thicker Sealcoating better?

Reliable_Mar25As a Baltimore asphalt contractor, Reliable Contracting has heard it all. Is it too cold to pave? What is the lifecycle of asphalt? And, of course, is thicker sealcoating better? After all, as Americans, we live in a society where we are constantly bombarded with the notion that bigger is better. Well, the same is not true for sealcoating.

Contrary to popular belief, thicker sealcoating does not provide added protection. In fact, thicker sealcoating has many disadvantages:

  1. Thicker sealcoating has no texture
  2. Thicker sealcoating takes much longer to cure
  3. Thicker sealcoating does not cure evenly
  4. Thicker sealcoating is prone to surface cracks
  5. Thicker sealcoating reduces the life of your sealcoating project

Sealcoating manufacturers set specific mix designs for their product. When asphalt contractors stray from these specifications, the product will not perform as intended. This is why you need to trust your asphalt parking lot to a reliable asphalt contractor, like Reliable Contracting! The name says it all!
