What Is Sealcoating?


Sealcoating, also known as pavement sealing, is the process of applying a protective coating to a pavement surface to prevent cracking, crumbling and general deterioration. With sealcoating services from Berchtold, you can expect:

  1. Pavement Prep – We inspect your asphalt, determine its current condition, and ensure its surface is clean and debris-free.
  2. Minor Repairs – If there are any noticeable cracks, crumbling or potholes in your pavement, we repair these areas before sealcoating
  3. Application – Once the pavement is ready, we apply a proper sealant mixture, adding additional coats as needed.
  4. Curing – After application, the sealcoat is left to cure fully, taking one to three days.
  5. Striping & Cleanup – Final steps include striping for commercial lots or roadways and general job site cleanup.

Residential Service

Caring for your property is one of the many concerns of homeowners. However, this means more than cleanup, yard care and general home maintenance. Even less thought-about aspects of your home, such as driveways or walking paths, need attention. Thankfully, through sealcoating services, you don’t have to worry about maintaining your asphalt. Sealcoating protects your pavement and preserves its condition, helping prevent cracks, crumbling and unraveling. With help from Berchtold Asphalt, homeowners can seal every asphalt and pavement surface on their property, including:

  • Driveways
  • Paths and Walkways
  • Patios
  • Garage Floors
  • Parking Pads
  • Basketball and Sports Courts
  • Grain Elevators

Commercial Service

As much use as commercial lots and roadways get daily, preserving pavement conditions proves crucial for business owners and city municipalities. Sealcoated roadways last longer, without serious repairs or maintenance, improve driver/pedestrian safety and keep your pavement looking fresh and clean. With Berchtold Asphalt’s experience and equipment, we make short work of asphalt sealcoating jobs, ensuring all safety, road and paving standards are met. Some of Berchtold Asphalt’s commercial sealcoating projects include:

What Are Sealcoating’s Benefits?

Unfortunately, several factors can impact the condition of your asphalt. From the sun’s UV rays to vehicle’s leaky oil gaskets, your pavement can take a beating! Thankfully, with proper sealcoating from Berchtold Asphalt, your pavement can enjoy protection and benefits like:

  • Moisture-Tight Seal – Sealcoating helps fill hairline cracks where water, oil and gasoline can intrude and accelerate deterioration.
  • Slowed Oxidation – While sealcoating can’t outright prevent oxidation (deterioration due to exposure to air and the sun’s UV rays), it can significantly slow it down.
  • Increased Lifespan – Because sealcoating helps protect pavement against stress and deterioration, it significantly extends the lifespan of your asphalt.
  • Greater Cost Savings – By sealcoating your pavement, you avoid much of the expense surrounding consistent asphalt maintenance and repair.
