Winter is Coming – Protect Your Driveway Now
The winters on Long Island are a strange beast. Some winters are harsh in Nassau and Suffolk county, while others seem mild. Your driveway, however, can face severe damage from the constantly changing temperatures as well as rain water in a mild winter that freezes days or weeks later. Sealcoating is the best step you can take to avoid thousands of dollars in damages this winter. It protects – and looks great!

STAR-SEAL concentrate provides a tough charcoal barrier fortified with inert minerals. This solution is resistant to most prevalent elements that damage asphalt surfaces. STAR-SEAL has protective characteristics for better adhesion and longer wear.
Frequent Sealcoat and Asphalt Maintenance Questions
No. The pavement must lose some of its light oils and cure before you can properly sealcoat. Newly installed, unsealed asphalt can absorb oil, gas and other chemicals or be damaged by winter weather before it’s treated. So don’t wait over a year at most.
With a new driveway sealed within 6 months to a year from installation, you could probably get 2 to 3 years of protection from your first application under normal weather conditions. If the driveway is 10 years old and was never sealed, you might only get 1 year from the first application, but 2 to 3 years from subsequent sealcoat applications. Additionally, variables such as water runoff, salt, sand, snowplowing and severe temperature swings will play a role in the longevity of your sealcoat. After a particularly severe winter, like the winter of 2014, you may need to sealcoat after one year.
Anyone that promises 5, 6 or 7 years or more of coverage is simply making empty promises that you’ll have no way of enforcing.
