How Sealcoating Works
Commercial Paving of Maine specializes in sealcoating driveways, parking lots and other paved areas. Our experience tells us that when you sealcoat your pavement, it helps protect the pavement from harsh use and ever changing weather conditions, in turn extending its lifespan. We do this by applying a liquid sealant product over your existing asphalt pavement with an application technique developed over the many years we’ve been in business.
A quality paved parking lot or driveway is an investment that needs to be protected.
Sealcoating the asphalt pavement by hand, with a brush, is the only method Commercial Paving of Maine uses. Our Experience tells us that this method works best at getting sealcoating material into porous paving material and pavement cracks.
The Lifespan of Sealcoating
If your asphalt is under two years old, a professional application of sealant will need to be done in four years and then applied every five years after that.
Benefits of Sealcoating

Preparing For Sealcoating
When preparing for sealcoating, be sure to keep your pavement dry for up to 24 hours prior to our scheduled sealcoating date. You’ll need to notify family members and others, like landscapers, sanitation workers and mail carriers, who access your paved area not to walk or park on it for 24 hours. You will need to move all vehicles and dumpsters off the pavement. When you move items off the pavement be sure to move them at least 100 feet from the asphalt that is be sealcoated. During the cleaning process, this will help prevent any unwanted dust and debris from harming nearby vehicles, dumpster or items. Commercial Paving of Maine will go over preparation in detail with you prior to our arrival.
