Routine driveway sealcoating and maintenance can more than double the life of your asphalt. There’s nothing between your driveway and its worst enemies — sunlight, water and oxidation. The longer your asphalt driveway is exposed to the elements, the faster it deteriorates. The tar holding it together begins to harden and crack, creating an open door for rainwater and oxygen to get inside and cause further damage to the pavement. Before you know it, what was once a solid, flat surface becomes a cracked, pitted mess that’s ugly, unsafe and costly to repair.
Sealcoating your driveway regularly is essential to protecting it against its natural enemies because it does what its name suggests — it seals and coats your asphalt against the elements, keeping it together for longer.
The last thing any homeowner wants to do is have the driveway replaced, especially these days. Because the cost of asphalt replacement increases annually due to unpredictable oil prices, it’s important to regularly maintain your driveway.
Don’t be fooled by cheap driveway sealing estimates! There is a wide range of asphalt driveway sealing options on the market today, but not all can give your driveway the protection it needs. Budget sealers might look good for a couple of weeks, but they do not last nearly as long as the premium industrial-grade sealers that we use. By the time you purchase all of the equipment you’ll need to apply sealer yourself, you’ll spend about as much as you would to have the work done professionally, but without the same quality of residential sealcoating services you’ll get from Big Joe’s Sealcoating.

Why We’re Better
Our driveway sealing services are second to none. Big Joe’s Sealcoating carries the highest-quality sealer available with the perfect mix of additives for the Midwest climate. Our sealer slows the damaging oxidation from the sun, prevents water penetration and improves appearance.
Our professionals do not spray — we apply all driveway sealer with soft brushes. This method provides a much thicker application, which leaves more sealer on your asphalt driveway. The result is a perfect protective layer. We’ll provide you with additional services to repair your driveway if it has any cracks or potholes. We can provide the same type of crack fillers we use to seal cracks in commercial parking lots, so your driveway will last longer after its regularly scheduled sealcoating. For older driveways with extensive cracking, we also can perform a slurry sealcoating that mixes sand with our sealer to help ensure every crack and dimple is filled and the driveway lasts a lot longer.
