Sealcoating is the key to a successful pavement
maintenance program. It protects against damaging water

The sooner asphalt is sealed after its initial
installation the better. New asphalt should be
sealed six months to a year from the date of
installation. This gives the asphalt time to cure but

substitute for major asphalt repairs, and sealer will
not adhere to dirty or oily surfaces. Illinois's 1ST Choice Asphalt Repair services make sure that the asphalt is properly cleaned and
