Harsh Winter Signals Busy Summer for CT Sealcoating Company

As the weather heats up driveway repair becomes even more important.

Online PR News – 27-April-2011 – – Oxford, CT (onlineprnews) April 27, 2011 – The first day of spring has come and gone and Oxford based driveway repair and sealing company, A-1 Sealcoating would like homeowners to know that now is the best time to have their driveways repaired. After the harsh winter that New England (and most of the United States)endured, driveways are in need of protection against summer weather and another busy winter. A1 Sealcoating, serving Southbury 06488, suggests performing driveway sealing every two years to prevent the natural decay and oxidation of asphalt. Over time the elements can wreak havoc on driveways. Sun, rain, ice and snow causes asphalt to dry out and lose its durable properties. This process is known as oxidization and is easy to identify as it also causes the asphalt to gray. Fundamentally, oxidation signifies a lack of flexibility in the asphalt. This leads to a type of spider-web like cracks which resembles alligator skin. And these alligator cracks lead to pot holes and the need for total replacement becomes likely.

In order to prevent the need to completely replace a driveway preventative maintenance is a must. Stopping cracking before it starts and quickly treating them when they do happen is the best way to combat the wear and tear harsh New England weather is capable of causing.

Since a lot depends on your driveway you should make sure that all work concerning it is only carried out by licensed and insured companies. A-1 Sealcoating has been in business for over 15 years and through that time they have maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. The President of A-1 Sealcoating, Laura Pederson, discussed her company's dedication to satisfaction, “The product we use for sealcoating far exceeds the quality of our competitors. Their product won't stand up to hard rain—late alone a winter like the one we just had.”
