As an Alaska homeowner, you know your driveway takes a beating year-round. Your driveway can quickly become damaged and worn from heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures in the winter to summer heat and UV rays. To protect your investment and keep your driveway looking great, it’s important to have it sealed by a professional seal coating company. But when is the best time of year to have this done? Let’s take a closer look.
At Alaska Quality Sealcoat, we recommend having your driveway sealed in late spring or early summer. This time of year offers several benefits, including ideal weather conditions and the ability to prevent future damage.
During winter, your driveway can become damaged by snow, ice, and freezing temperatures. As the snow melts, water can seep into cracks in your driveway and cause it to expand and contract, leading to even more damage. Sealing your driveway in the spring or early summer can prevent this water from entering the cracks and causing further damage.
Another benefit of having your driveway sealed in the spring or early summer is the weather conditions. Sealcoating requires warm, dry weather to set and cure properly. While summer may seem like the ideal time, temperatures too high can also be a problem. The ideal temperature range for seal coating is between 50 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, making late spring and early summer the perfect time to have your driveway sealed.
In addition to the weather conditions, having your driveway sealed in the spring or early summer can help prevent future damage. Sealcoating acts as a protective barrier, preventing water, oil, and other substances from penetrating the surface of your driveway. This can help extend the life of your driveway and avoid future repairs.
Of course, it’s important to remember that the best time to have your driveway sealed can vary depending on your location and weather conditions. Since we live in an area that experiences particularly harsh winters, it’s best to consult a professional seal coating company to determine the optimal time for your driveway.
