What’s Included in a Driveway Sealcoating Estimate?

Sealcoating can do numbers for your asphalt driveway. In fact, driveway sealcoating is one of the best ways you can protect your asphalt from elements like harsh weather and UV rays. When you call for this service, you’ll be given an estimate from the sealcoating company. What should be included in this document? Here’s an overview from SMI Paving.


When it comes to driveway work, especially sealcoating, an inspection is always necessary. It helps paving contractors determine the overall condition of your asphalt. For example, do repairs need to be made before the sealcoat is applied? This evaluation also helps the sealcoating company calculate the time that will be needed to get the application completed. Longer driveways will take more time than smaller ones.
