Did you know that by routinely sealing your commercial or industrial lot you can save money in the long run when compared to fixing the problems only as they appear? It’s true. By seal coating your paved surface, asphalt will be protected from elements like UV rays and water which weaken the binding agent that holds the asphalt together. If you require asphalt seal coating for your Edmonton property, rely on Kelsey Paving.
Asphalt is composed of aggregate such as rock or gravel mixed with a special binder called asphalt cement which glues the aggregate together. This binder is essential for preserving the strength of the asphalt. Rain, sunlight, salt, and other contaminants gradually wear away at the binder and cause the asphalt to fall apart, eventually making the asphalt turn weak and brittle.
The Benefits of Seal Coating
Asphalt seal coating is usually composed of bitumen-based products or acrylics mixed with water, silica sand, polymers, and other materials. Asphalt seal coating protects the asphalt from the elements.
In order to prevent erosion it is very important to initiate a maintenance plan by using seal coating to prolong the life of your asphalt surface. Seal coating prevents erosion caused by sunlight, oil deposits, general wear, and winter salt applications. It also helps prevent cracks that eventually turn into potholes. In fact, seal coating can make your asphalt surface last more than twice as long as it would otherwise, saving you a lot of money in the long run!
Lastly, having a smooth, sealed, black surface helps beautify your home or business’s exterior and adds curb appeal. In addition to its protective properties, an asphalt seal coating provides an indispensable look of propriety and class to your home or business.

Seal Coating Tips
Frequently Asked Questions
What should be done before seal coating any surface?
You must clean the surface to ensure all dirt is removed. Cracks must be repaired, and the grease spots must be treated.
When is asphalt sealer applied?
A new asphalt surface should cure for a minimum of 30 days. Once asphalt settles, the sealer can be used over the surface.
Why are additives used during the sealing process?
Additives speed up the drying process of asphalt and also help in reducing steering marks.

Reviews & Testimonials
“We are extremely pleased with the job that Kelsey Paving did for our own and our neighbours’ driveway in Beaumont (driveways were joined). You won’t find a better rate and the quality is top-notch. They were an extremely efficient and professional crew, everyone knew what they we’re doing. They excavated to the depth they were supposed to and made sure the grading was perfect - they didn’t cut corners in materials or quality of job. Done in 2 days, couldn’t be happier with the final product.”
