Asphalt sealcoating not only makes your parking lot or driveway look new again, but when applied correctly helps protect against harmful elements such as gas and oil leaks and the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Sealcoating material is normally applied in two coats and allowed to cure for a day before asphalt striping paint is applied. Sealcoating should be applied every two years or as the surface shows signs of graying out. Sealcoating is much less expensive than complete removal and replacement of pavement.
Asphalt is a cost-effective pavement solution and offers years of service when maintained properly. Over time, the binder in asphalt begins to degrade and your asphalt surfaces may begin to crack, chip, or erode. A sealcoat can help protect your surfaces from damage and prolong the service life of your asphalt surface. Not all sealcoating options are the same. We can help you select the best sealcoating technique for your surface to give you the most durable surface possible and keep your asphalt surfaces looking and working great.
Asphalt Sealing, or sealcoating, is simply the process of laying a thin protective layer over asphalt-based pavement to give it a protective layer of protection against the elements: oil, water, and U.V. The positive effects of asphalt sealing have long been debated. Some claim that asphalt sealing increases the lifespan of the pavement, but again, there’s no evidence that backs up those claims. In fact, asphalt sealing can actually damage the pavement by creating cracks. The excessive water and oil that can be soaked into the asphalt also weaken its structural integrity. And, the chemical fumes emitted during asphalt sealing can also be harmful to humans.
With all of that in mind, it’s not surprising that a lot of business owners, when they set out to perform asphalt sealing, opt to go the non-per square foot route. For one thing, the costs are much lower, often no more than a few cents per square foot. And, the benefits of lower cost and improved performance are well-known. After all, if you want to save money, you want to reduce your operation costs, right?

About Douglasville, Georgia
Located along a natural rise in the topography, Douglasville was originally known as "Skint Chestnut." The name was derived from a large tree used by Native Americans as a landmark; it was stripped of its bark so as to be more conspicuous.
Douglasville was founded in 1874 as the railroad was constructed in the area. That same year, Douglasville was designated as the county seat of the recently formed Douglas County. The community was named for Senator Stephen A. Douglas of Illinois.
Georgia General Assembly first incorporated Douglasville in 1875.
On September 21, 2009, Douglas County was devastated by the worst flood in Georgia history. Over 18 inches (457 mm) of rain fell in one night, destroying many roads and homes.

The flooding most affected the areas of Douglasville, Villa Rica, Austell, Lithia Springs, and Chapel Hill. The disaster killed more than eight people in the county, most of them in the Douglasville area.
