Why Sealcoat?

The asphaltic properties often degrade due to numerous factors, including wear & tear, overuse, harsh weather, and sun. Continuous maintenance is required to nullify the effect of these elements. To avoid or prolong expensive replacements after years of usage, property owners rely on sealcoating. This is where APM O'Neill and Sons takes charge.

What is sealcoating?

Sealcoating, or pavement sealing, is the process of applying a protective coating to asphalt-based pavements to provide a layer of protection from the elements of freeze and thaw cycle, water, oils, and U.V. damage. Sealcoating slows down the oxidation process, fills and seals small cracks and increases the life span of the asphalt. Sealcoating acts as a waterproofing agent, minimizing the rate at which water enters the asphalt. Sealcoating is aesthetically pleasing and improves the property value and the curb appeal of your property. Paving Professionals uses the highest quality sealer available. We use Black Diamond XL asphalt sealer which is a new, high performance alternative to asphalt emulsion (AE) sealer and refined tar sealer. Black Diamond is a premium heavy-duty, superior performance, polymer-modified petroleum-based emulsion pavement sealer, containing a high molecular weight polymer that has been cross-linked with the base to enhance durability, adhesion, elastic, and wear resistance. Black Diamond exceeds asphalt emulsion (AE) performance with longer durability, increased toughness against power steering marks, and has a richer darker finish. Black Diamond sealer is fuel resistance, durable and lasts longer than emulsion tar sealer products. Let APM O'Neill and Sons show you why we are regarded as the best paving company on Long Island.

Benefits of Sealcoating

We have already discussed how this process protects the driveways from external elements like moisture, chemicals, and salts. Another benefit is that scars and patches on the driveway aren’t visible anymore. Those who sealcoat their parking lot and driveway can expect longer lives of these two areas. The emulsions can be applied easily by spraying or using squeegees. The team utilizes quality equipment and superior quality materials for this purpose.

APM O'Neill and Sons spends extra time to ensure that their sealcoating equipment is maintained and ready for the next job. All these features have made APM O'Neill and Sons the most reliable sealcoating contractor on Long Island.
