What is Asphalt Oxidation and how does it affect my asphalt driveway? Will sealing my driveway help this?
As soon as a brand-new asphalt driveway is laid, it starts to break down. The sun, with its UV rays, beats down on the surface of your driveway. The constant exposure hardens and dries the asphalt driveway out, reducing asphalt thickness dramatically and encouraging cracking and potholes.
This process can happen in as little as just five years. This process turns the asphalt from black and healthy to grey and brittle. Having your driveway sealed on a routine basis provides protection from these UV rays, making it difficult to promote the oxidation process. Furthermore, a good sealant will provide protection from motor oil and gasoline leaks, daily wear and tear and extreme weather conditions.
Sealing your driveway will increase its useful life and boost curb appeal. Grey asphalt driveways are bland and an eye sore on residential streets and without proper maintenance face future replacement.
