Sealing Driveways with Asphalt. Why do it?
At The Driveway Doctor Inc., it’s the one question we get asked more than any other:
“Why should I seal my asphalt driveway?”
Chances are, if you’re reading this, you either live in – or own a commercial business – in Southern Ontario. And Southern Ontario weather means:
- Frigid temperatures
- Excessive heat
- Downpours of rain
- Ice and heavy snow
- Dreaded road salt
- Strong windstorms
Your asphalt driveway or parking lot is exposed to harsh weather conditions every day with no means of cover. Sealing and restoring driveways using our special asphalt sealer helps protect them from expensive repairs due to:
- Cracking due to extreme heat and harmful UV rays
- Water seepage from heavy rainfall and spring thaws
- Dipping and sagging from water leaking into the foundation under the asphalt
Asphalt driveways are strong. But so is Mother Nature. Driveway sealing and restoration, as well as sealcoating from The Driveway Doctor Inc. give your driveway a protective and preventative edge against the wild weather that Southern Ontario can bring.
Daily wear and tear
In addition to weather, this is what your driveway has to deal with on a daily basis:
- The weight of cars and trucks on it
- Oil spills and other fluid leaks
- Ongoing contraction and expansion
- Dirt, dust and other debris
And the problems may not be evident now, but over time, your driveway could fall prey to:
- Chipping and cracking
- Depressions and pot holes
- Compromising the foundation underneath
- Weed growth in cracks due to trapped seeds
Protecting driveways is always preferable to replacing them. Sealing driveways is a preventative measure.
By sealing and restoring your driveway BEFORE it needs to be replaced (and then maintaining it with ongoing sealing every three years), you’ll keep your driveway looking good and working well.
Most importantly – you’ll keep more money in your pocket.
It looks great
A fresh, smooth, newly sealed asphalt driveway or parking lot instantly attracts attention from anyone who walks or drives by. It stands out against neighbouring driveways, and gives your home a well-kept appearance, showing you take pride in your property.
In addition to boosting curb appeal, it also can boost the value of your home, should you decide to move. Prospective buyers will not have to worry about incurring the cost of an expensive driveway repair – because you’ve been proactive in protecting your driveway through sealing and restoration.

Mike Holder, Tutor Networks Inc. “Not only was the walkway sprayed, but John and Mark actually got on their hands and knees to scrape out all of the dirt and grime that had accumulated between the stones. They then put down new sand as well. The walkway looked faded before, and now the colors pop right out again, looks better than it did new.”
