Residential Driveway Contractor

Your driveway is an integral part of your property. Functionally, it connects your home and garage to the road, maybe your kids ride bikes in your driveway, and it provides off-street parking for visitors. Visually, your driveway has curb appeal with a new blacktop finish being more appealing than a driveway that’s faded or has oil stains. Whatever the condition of your driveway, sealcoating is an inexpensive way to extend the life of your asphalt, improve the curb appeal of your property, and save you money over time.

Causes of driveway degradation

There are a variety of issues that can cause your asphalt driveway to deteriorate over time, some causing issues faster than others. The most common reasons you might have driveway issues are:

  • Freeze/thaw cycles from snow and ice infiltrating into your pavement can cause cracks or potholes
  • Flooding, water flowing or ponding near your drive can cause sinking, settlement, or wipe out parts your driveway completely
  • Gas, diesel fuel, oil, salt and other chemicals break bonds between aggregate and the liquid asphalt, the composition that makes up your asphalt pavement. 
  • Sun can cause oxidation of the asphalt binder which weakens the bonds between the asphalt and aggregate

By investing in regular driveway sealcoating and crack sealing, you will provide a protective barrier against these elements and prevent minor imperfections from escalating into major problems, extending the life of your pavement, and saving you significant costs in the long run.

Jet Seal’s Residential Asphalt Driveway Sealcoating and Repair Services

Our mission is to provide professional, residential asphalt driveway sealcoating and repair services aimed at preserving the integrity, functionality and aesthetics of your driveway. With a commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, Jet-Seal ensures long-lasting protection and enhanced curb appeal while keeping your asphalt driveways fully functional.

Blacktop Sealcoating


Jet-Seal’s blacktop sealcoating service is a crucial part of asphalt driveway maintenance, providing a protective barrier that shields your driveway from water infiltration, oil spills, and the damaging effects of UV rays. By sealing the surface, sealcoating prevents oxidation and deterioration, extending the lifespan of your asphalt pavement. Additionally, sealcoating enhances the appearance of your pavement, giving it a fresh, dark finish that improves curb appeal.

Asphalt Driveway Crack Sealing

Group 15 2 1

Jet-Seal’s crack sealing service is a necessary component to asphalt driveway maintenance, addressing cracks promptly to prevent water infiltration and minimize further damage. By sealing cracks, we protect the underlying layers of your asphalt surface, stopping it from cracking further and extending its lifespan, saving you money on costly repairs in the long run. 

There are limitations to crack sealing as some cracks may be so wide or deep that no amount of crack sealing can “save” the driveway pavement. When the structural integrity of the driveway has been compromised, fixing surface-level cracks are not cost effective and it’s better to look at alternative solutions.

Residential Asphalt Driveway Paving - Driveway Repairs and Replacement

Group 15 3

When driveways have severe cracking, potholes, missing chunks of asphalt, there are drainage issues, or have sections of the driveway that have sunk, these are potential indicators of larger driveway failures that may or may not make sense to fix.

We provide a comparison analysis to help you determine whether a driveway repair is cost effective or not. We’ll compare the cost of a driveway repair, the age of the driveway, and it’s remaining serviceable life with respect to a complete driveway replacement. 

In many cases, the cost of completely replacing the entire driveway isn’t that much more expensive when you consider the cost of repairs:

  • Digging up the current driveway section that has failed
  • Disposing of material
  • Repairing the sub-base, pavement structure, fixing drainage, or other issues that caused the pothole, cracking, and more
  • Replacing a small section of the driveway

The relatively small amount of time it takes to excavate the rest of the asphalt driveway and cost of additional asphalt pavement, for driveways older than half of their service life, it’s often more cost effective to replace the entire drive than to fix the issue AND replace the entire driveway in another 5-8 years.

Jet-Seal does not provide additions to current driveways but will complete full replacements + the new drive section if you need to add onto your current drive.

We’ll work with you to figure out what makes the most sense for your situation.

Your Driveway Needs REPLACED if it Looks Like This

These are examples of driveways that are clearly in need of replacement as they have excessive asphalt loss, widespread cracking, vegetation growing through them, and more. They are beyond a “repairable” state, not just “cracked” and are broken. There is no question about it. If your driveway looks like one of these above examples, then you should call us to schedule an estimate for a replacement.

Residential Driveway Sealcoating and Asphalt Maintenance Services FAQs

How much does sealcoating a driveway cost?

The cost of sealcoating a driveway can vary depending on factors such as the size of the driveway, its current condition, and any specific requirements. Typically, our sealcoating services are priced based on square footage of your driveway. We offer competitive rates and strive to provide transparent pricing to our customers. For an accurate quote tailored to your driveway, please contact us.

What does sealcoating a driveway do?

Sealcoating acts as a protective barrier to your asphalt which is comprised of an oil-based binder, aggregate, and sand. Protecting your asphalt from various elements such as UV rays, water, and oil spills helps to prevent oxidation and deterioration of the asphalt, ultimately extending the lifespan of the driveway.

How long to wait after sealcoating a driveway?

After sealcoating a driveway, it’s important to allow sufficient time for the sealant to cure and dry properly before allowing any traffic on the surface. Typically, you should wait at least 24 to 48 hours before walking or driving on the newly sealcoated driveway. However, this timeframe may vary depending on various weather conditions.

How often to seal driveway?

Typically, you will want to sealcoat your driveway every 2-3 years to maintain a high-quality seal. However, this will depend on many factors such as amount of driveway usage, the condition of your driveway, and severity of weather.

How much does an asphalt driveway repair cost?

The cost of asphalt driveway repair can vary depending on the extent of the damage, the size of the repair area, sloping of your driveway (or lack thereof), potential drainage issues, and the specific repair methods needed. Minor repairs such as filling cracks or patching small potholes will cost less compared to larger repairs but without actually seeing damage to the driveway, there’s no “flat rate” cost of repairs.
