What to expect

When you choose Challenge Asphalt for your seal coating needs, you get our best-in-class equipment, decades of experience, and commitment to your project. Before laying asphalt, our crew will outline a comprehensive maintenance plan with a recommended seal coating timeline.

With new asphalt, we use GuardTop seal coat within the first year of installation, which helps us achieve a strong bond and thicker wearing surface. If your driveway is older, we’ll first clean out and hot patch potholes and cracks before adding the GuardTop application, which we broom on to remove excess aggregate particles.

Because seal coating is a preventative measure, we recommend reapplying it every two to three years.

About GuardTop Seal Coat

Our seal coat material of choice is GuardTop. The asphalt-based product includes a proprietary blend of base stocks, mineral aggregates, and high solids content. Because GuardTop is not tar-based, it’s an eco-friendly option to protect your driveway.
