Spring is around the corner… Sealcoating time!

Springtime Asphalt Repair ServiceIt is currently March, and with winter slowly ending, the long awaited & anticipated Spring is rapidly approaching. Even though  lots of snow is still visible on the ground, this winter season will eventually come to  end, and our thoughts can finally  turn from plowing our driveways to protecting them. Now, is the perfect time to think about sealing and beautifying your driveway for the seasons to come.

With the sun shining and the snow slowly melting, you might have noticed that your asphalt pavement has suffered some damage. It’s nice to have a cessation of winter storms long enough to find out the state of your asphalt, so you can plan for any springtime repairs or maintenance in advance.

With Spring being closer than it seems, let’s start thinking and planning about how we can protect, repair and beautify our driveways and parking lots.

Here are 5 reasons why Spring is the best time to get started with sealcoating in Flemington NJ and the surrounding areas:

1. Curb Appeal

Winter damages the sealer more than any season, and it shows. Why not get a sealer applied after the winter and have your driveway look new all summer long? Commercial properties in Flemington and the surrounding areas often schedule their parking lots for sealing and striping in the Spring just for this reason.

2. Price

Prices are often lower in the Spring when residential sealing is slow going. Often, you can make deals with the contractor to have a sign placed in your yard for a little longer than normal. In the beginning of the season, most contractors want to get the signs out as soon, and for as long as possible. They want to start carving out territory. The fact is, most homeowners in Flemington and surrounding areas will go with the same contractor as the guy down the street did (if the job looks professional). So often by doing one driveway, a sealcoating contractor has a good chance of be the contractor of choice for that whole neighborhood.

3. Scheduling

In September contractors are so busy, they are  packing their schedule as tight as possible.  Since it is slower in the Spring you might be able to have the driveway done when it suits you. Going away for a long weekend or on vacation? Not a problem in Flemington and surrounding areas.

4. Durability  

If you sealed your driveway in the fall, the sealer might not cure as well because of the cold weather. In the late Spring, temperatures are usually perfect and there is no worry about freezing temperatures.

5. More flexibility with weather in Flemington and surrounding areas

Since it is the beginning of the sealing season, there is no problem of running out of time like in the fall. If there is a month’s worth of rain, we can still get to the driveway the following  month, while in the fall it would be the following year. If a problem arises with the job, there will be plenty of time to remedy the situation, in the fall you would have to wait until… Spring!

You can greatly improve the “curb appeal” of your home or business in Flemington and surrounding areas with some simple asphalt protection and maintenance. Without the appropriate sealcoating being applied regularly, it’s much easier for asphalt to crack and potholes to form.

Remember, Spring is closer than you think! If you are seeing that your driveway needs attention, now is the time to contact us for  your springtime sealcoating or paving project in Flemington New Jersey and surrounding areas. You will definitely have the peace of mind knowing your work is scheduled and will be done right.
