Frontier Asphalt Services is your affordable asphalt seal coating contractor in Leesburg, VA. Sealing your asphalt on a regular basis is extremely important. Over time, asphalt that is not maintained will begin to crack, break down and break apart. This can be avoided by regular asphalt maintenance. Regular maintenance will increase the longevity and the appearance of your asphalt driveway or lot. Seal coating is a unique process that applies a coating that acts as a barrier from materials that may react with the surface of the asphalt. Some of these include weather, dirt and chemicals.
We begin by thoroughly cleaning the entire asphalt surface. Once the asphalt surface is clean, we will repair any problem areas by patching and crack filling. When repairs have been completed and have had time to dry, we complete the seal coating process. We apply the seal coat using two separate techniques. One being a brush or squeegee the other being a spray wand. Our process involves applying a hot oil based seal coat material mixed with sand. Where appropriate, to prevent staining of those surfaces, small brushes are used to cut-in adjacent to curbs, aprons, sidewalks, etc. You may notice a darker shade resulting from additional material in those areas, but in time, these areas will blend in with the rest of your driveway. This important step of the asphalt paving process will ensure your asphalt will last for much longer by withstanding the elements.
Asphalt resurfacing or overlay is a cost-effective alternative to asphalt removal and replacement. Asphalt resurfacing is the process of patching and repairing damaged areas, and then placing a new surface overlay on top of the existing surface. This creates a new looking asphalt surface with tearing out and replacing the old surface.
Frontier Asphalt Services offers affordable asphalt resurfacing for driveways, paths, walkways and small lots. We start by removing loose or broken asphalt, patching and repairing the damaged areas with new asphalt. Existing asphalt areas will be cut back for a tie-in. Next, we will clean the surface of dirt and debris and apply a tack coat to the existing asphalt surface. This aids in the bonding of new asphalt. We will level all areas as needed for an even surface. We then overlay or resurface the existing lot or surface with new material. We recommend seal coating all new asphalt for a long-lasting surface that is protected from the elements.
Over time the base material under your driveway starts to move and break down. Freezing, thawing and fluctuating temperature cycles can also have an adverse impact on the base material causing the base material to "pump" up into the surface resulting in cracking and breaking. This is a very common occurrence, especially in areas with heavy clay. Our driveway asphalt repair service is performed to correct isolated or random areas with problems.
Potholes, low spots, sinking at the garage, alligator or spider web cracking (numerous cracks that run together) are all candidates for repair. Damaged asphalt is carefully removed and new gravel is installed and compacted as needed. We will then apply a strong tack coat to the edges of the newly cut area. Finally, we install new high-quality asphalt at the same grade as adjoining pavement and compact to a uniform finish. Driveway and lot asphalt repair is a cost-effective alternative to replacement. As always, we recommend finishing the job with professional seal coating from Frontier Asphalt Services.
Asphalt Patching & Hot Crack Filling
A major part of asphalt maintenance is to regularly patch damaged areas and fill cracks in your driveway or lot. If holes and cracks are not filled, moisture will penetrate under the asphalt surface causing pot holes, sinking, alligator webs, soft spots and other extensive damage requiring costly repairs. In addition, vegetation will begin to grow, causing the surface to break apart even more. Professional asphalt patching and crack filling will save money on unnecessary expensive repairs and greatly increase the lifespan of the driveway or lot.
