We take pride in our meticulous sealcoating process because we know that the extra effort we put forth guarantees long-lasting and beautiful driveways of the highest quality.
Sealcoating your driveway every two to three years protects the asphalt from deterioration and damage caused by water, chemicals, traffic and weather, and extends the life and integrity of the pavement.
Preparation: Thorough preparation of a driveway prior to sealcoating ensures the product is applied with optimal adhesion for lasting results. Our technicians first edge along the sides of the driveway, cutting overgrown grass from along the blacktop. This gives the edges of the driveway a clean, manicured look, while allowing the sealer to reach down the sides of the driveway, ensuring a complete seal. We then torch and prime any oil stains on the pavement surface before applying sealer to prevent oil from bleeding up through the new sealcoat. BorderLines thoroughly scrubs the pavement using a wire brush, exfoliating the entire surface. Many companies skip this important step to save time; however, it plays a crucial role in the adhesion and longevity of a sealcoat.
Application: Our premium sealcoat product is applied by hand with a Prostran© nylon brush. Working the sealer back and forth into the pores of the asphalt ensures we get the best possible coverage and adhesion. Our technicians are meticulous in their application, making sure the product is not applied on neighboring sidewalks, walkways, or vegetation. Our customers enjoy driveways that are beautiful, deep-black and enhance their home’s curb appeal.
Post-Seal: After sealcoating, we block off the newly sealed area with banner tape and recommend you keep it up for at least 48 hours to allow the sealcoat to cure. Check out our maintenance tips for more information on how to take care of your driveway.
Unlike many big box stores and competitors, BorderLines does not buy products off the shelf that are often advertised as easy to apply yourself. Our sealcoat products are specially formulated to extend the life and enhance the look of your driveway. Our special formula produces a deep and long lasting color, with extra durability. We follow the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) guidelines to provide you with a safer product that is free from environmentally harmful additives. Never over-diluted, our products follow a consistent-mix design, ensuring optimal adhesion and uniformity of appearance across all paved areas of a property.
