What Is Sealcoating?

Sealcoating is a method of protecting asphalt surfaces from damage due to water, weather, oxidation, and natural wear and tear. This process is done by creating a waterproof seal over an asphalt or concrete surface, giving property owners beautiful, long-lasting pavement.

At Georgia’s Wildcat Paving, we offer expert sealcoating services to reduce repairs and replacement costs, ultimately maximizing your pavement’s lifespan.

How Frequently Is Sealcoating Required?

Sealcoating is essential to prolonging and enhancing your paved surfaces. At Georgia’s Wildcat Paving, we’ve found that it’s best to schedule a sealcoating service once every 2-3 years. However, the frequency at which you need sealcoating depends on:

Reactive vs. Proactive Maintenance

Property owners typically prefer proactive maintenance due to its efficiency in preventing problems, reducing costs, and maintaining uninterrupted service.

What Is Reactive Maintenance?

Reactive maintenance addresses issues as they arise, rather than preventing them beforehand. While it can be effective in certain situations, reactive maintenance has several drawbacks compared to proactive maintenance:

How Is Proactive Maintenance Different?

Proactive or preventative maintenance is different because it prevents problems before they arise, instead of after. This approach offers several advantages over reactive maintenance:

Our Sealcoating Process

Sealcoating prevents pavement issues before they happen, making it one of the most essential proactive maintenance services for your property. Here are the steps for every sealcoating service we perform:


We start by removing any debris and cleaning off the pavement surface in preparation for the sealcoat material to be applied. In this step, we will also repair any cracks, potholes, or damaged areas.

Edge and Tape

We will tape off any areas that don’t need sealcoat treatment to get the best appearance possible.

Apply the Sealcoat

We apply the sealcoat material using a spray or squeegee system, depending on how large the service area is.

Coat Application

We apply a sealant layer on top of the sealcoat material, typically coal-tar-based or asphalt-based, to ensure proper adhesion and create a smooth surface.

Dry & Cure

Drying and curing after a sealcoat can take anywhere between 12 to 36 hours.

Striping & Markings

Once the pavement is completely dry and cured, we can apply new lane markings, parking lines, and safety features.
