GUM RUBBER SQUEEGEES
DRIVEWAY SEALED with the HIGHEST QUALITY INDUSTRIAL GRADE LATEXITE® SEALER. The sealer is fortified with a fine silica sand for increased safety, traction, and longer wear. The sealer is applied full strength by hand with professional PRO COATER® GUM RUBBER SQUEEGEES for a liberal streak free coat. Your driveway can be rain safe in just 30 minutes. We use FSA/FASS-DRI sealer enhancer.
We never spray the sealer on because it requires watering down which often causes a quick wearing and messy application.
After 24 hours you ar free to walk on your newly sealed driveway and after 48 you are ready to drive on it! Lastly, please leave up our sign so we can retrieve them.
What we DON'T use:
Commonly called a rejuvenator this product is banned from use in most areas due to its VOC content and chemical make-up. The sealer seeps into the asphalt instead of sitting on top of it like a coating, because of this it is more difficult to apply and if done incorrectly it can cause even more damage to your pavement. Gilsonite sealers are often sprayed on by less reputable contracting companies or scam artists.
What we DO!
Be wary of sloppy discount outfits! Many companies skip edging the grass back and just quickly spray the sealer on ruining your grass and anything else nearby. We have even seen sealcoaters get overspray on fences, siding and even cars!
After pavement sealing please...
Keep automobiles off of freshly sealed pavement for 24-48 hours, depending on drying conditions.
Be careful not to walk on the driveway too soon as some areas may take longer to dry than others.
A freshly sealed pavement can be easily scuffed or scarred the first few weeks by thoughtless driving especially if it is very hot out. The churning action of front tires or sudden stops and starts can cause scuffing. If scuffing does occur it is very rarely permanent and should fade out within 1-4 weeks.
The purpose of the crack sealer is to prevent surface water penetration. The crack sealant will remain flexible so that it can expand and contract with the pavement. Minor tracking of the material may occur on very hot days in areas where application needs are particularly heavy. If tracking does occur, apply a light dusting of sand to the affected area. Due to the texture and flexibility of crack repair material or the size of certain cracks, a repair may be visible through sealer. Upon cooling of crack sealant, some settling may occur. Crack sealing is preventative maintenance; some damage may still persist.
