Many homeowners don’t always realize this, but there are many different types of sealants out there, so you won’t always know what type a landscaping company is using. Here at AHS, we use an oil-based sealant that is resistant to oil, gasoline and salt. It is composed of liquid asphalt, sand, solvents, tar and petroleum. Some will notice that these ingredients can also been found in asphalt – this is what makes our sealant the best!
Our sealant is very resistant and protects driveways from different weather and element effects, like oxidization from the sun, erosion from water and ice, and general wear and tear. Our sealant is durable so that it can bear the brunt of the car traffic so that the asphalt doesn’t have to. After we apply our sealant, it takes about 24 hours for it to dry. Additionally, the sealer will stay shiny for about a week before it settles to a matte black. When you go with our sealant, you can expect it to last 2 years before you have to reseal.
