One of the benefits of seal coating asphalt is preventing moisture damage. It is essential to note that when seal coating is applied correctly, it is going to prevent moisture from getting beneath the surface layer, weakening the base which will in turn cause cracks. You find that when you manage to keep water out of asphalt, you will be safeguarding against all types of water damage. Besides, if water finds its way through the top surface of the asphalt, it can start to wash away the base level. Apart from that, you should also know that the water that is trapped beneath the asphalt will go through periods of thaw melt cycles depending on the weather. This way the moisture will expand causing pressure on the asphalt and eventually lead to cracks.
Apart from that, it is also beneficial because it protects asphalt against gas and oil spills. We can agree on one thing that you cannot prevent gas and oils from spilling on asphalt.

One good thing with this is that it will give you enough time to clean the surface before it causes severe damage.
Apart from that, seal coating also improves the appearance of asphalt. One good thing with seal coating is that when you pour it on asphalt it will make a noticeable difference as it will make it look new the same way it was the first time it was poured.

The best part of it is that sealcoating will also help in filling the cracks as this will make the asphalt surface to last longer saving you from spending too much on repairs.
Besides, seal coating asphalt also reduces long-term repair costs.
