Difference Between Asphalt Overlay And Asphalt Sealcoating?
These two asphalt paving processes are similar but not exactly the same.
- Asphalt Sealcoating – A thin layer of asphalt emulsions, additives, and very fine aggregates, and it’s meant to protect existing asphalt against wear.
- Asphalt Overlay – A layer of actual asphalt pavement laid over an existing paved area.
Why Get Overlay Services?
An asphalt overlay is a good choice for pavement that’s damaged over less than a fourth of the total surface area, doesn’t have deep cracks, and has a stable base layer. Asphalt overlay is a good choice for a worn parking lot that’s had a couple potholes filled, for example, and it creates a new surface layer.
When is Overlay Not Enough?
If the pavement is seriously damaged, uneven, or cracked, an overlay won’t help, and it’s time for full depth asphalt replacement.
