Your driveway takes some serious wear and tear over the years.
Especially when you live in Ottawa. With the bitter cold winters and the hot and humid summers no wonder the asphalt contracts and expands. As a result cracks and potholes are common in Ontario.
There are many ways that you can seal your driveway. Here are some of the ways that you can get your driveway back in good health.
- Purchase the sealcoat and do it yourself
If you are an expert in asphalt and concrete this will probably be the cheapest option. Doing it yourself will probably take a good days work depending on how many cracks you have to fill. You will need the sealcoat and a way to heat it, something to spread the material with, and a dry day.
2. Hire a professional
If you are looking for driveway sealing in Ottawa then you are best off hiring a pro to do the work for you. It’s affordable, lasts a long time, and you know that you won’t mess it up yourself. Most people will opt for this option. I would suggest contacting Cameron from Seal A Drive. He has been in the industry for years and always does a fantastic job for his clients.
The importance of treating your asphalt for the winter
The bitter cold Ontario winters are terrible for any type of asphalt that you have. The cold weather will make the asphalt brittle if it’s not treated every year. The treatment adds the oils back into the asphalt and makes it more malleable so that when it contracts with the cold it doesn’t crack.
In the end it’s more than worth it because it would cost thousands of dollars to repave your asphalt in most cases. However if you keep it treated properly it will stay good for years and years.
