Why Choose Luther's Sealcoating?

We are more than willing to meet with you and walk you through our process until you are comfortable.

Why is sealcoating important?

More homeowners and property managers in America are sealcoating their pavement. That’s because sealcoating is an absolute must, and it goes beyond adding curb appeal to your property.

It’s a protective coat that can damage-proof your asphalt, so it can last for up to 36 years.

Like how we wear sunscreen to prevent our skin from getting dark spots, applying a sealant to your pavement protects it from damage caused by UV rays, gasoline, weathering, and other contaminants. It keeps water out of those porous areas so they don’t crack or deteriorate quickly.

Without it, your asphalt pavement can develop cracks, chips, and potholes.

What experience do you have?

We will let you know exactly how much it will cost before we schedule a job.

Is sealcoating a DIY project?

Saving money on labor fees is the biggest benefit of doing sealcoating by yourself, BUT if you’ve never done sealcoating before, you could buy poor-quality tools and supplies. The cost savings can be minimal and not worth the hassle of trial and error.

If you don’t like ruining your clothes in the process and suffering from skin irritation, then DIYing is not for you.

The worst risk about doing it yourself is needing to spend and redo the project again when you’ve made a mistake during the sealing preparation.

In summary, DIYing is best for people who have experience sealcoating asphalt. If you’re considering it, assess if the cost savings is worth the risk of re-doing the project as a result of trial and error.

How often should you seal asphalt?

You should seal asphalt when it starts to turn gray, usually around every three years depending on traffic and weather conditions. The average unsealed surface last approximately 10 -12 years. But with factors like extreme climates, traffic, and enduring heavy vehicles, an unsealed pavement most of the time lasts for only three years. Studies show that sealcoating extends the life of a pavement by 3 times.
