How soon in the season should I seal coat?

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the May 6th, 2009

When is the best time to seal coat a drive way? That depends on where you are at in the county.

Here in the mid west we could start sealing as early as April. This year however, we are starting a little later because of our weather conditions. In order to get the optimum performance from your seal coating you MUST wait until the temperature outside is at least 50 degrees for 24 hours after application.

NO manufacturers of sealer will not honor any warranty if these conditions have not been met. West Suburban Asphalt stands behind ALL of their work. Call to ask about our guarantees we offer.

    Is coal tar really dangerous?

    Coal tar sealants contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). PAHs can be problematic for many reasons, such as causing mutations and birth defects in aquatic life. According to the EPA, some PAHs are probable human carcinogens. This raises alarms when we consider that one possible point of exposure to PAHs from coal tar sealants is in the form of dust that is tracked into homes. Children may be particularly vulnerable because of the amount of time they spend on the floor and their tendency to put objects and dirty fingers into their mouths.

    Coal tar sealants may not be the only source of human exposure to PAHs in our homes (other potential culprits include tobacco smoking and fireplace use), but that is no excuse for inaction.

    The Coal Tar Sealants Reduction Act is commonsense legislation that will benefit our ecosystem and the health of Texans and other Americans. As we enter the second year of a Republican-controlled House of Representatives, I hope that you will continue to join me in protecting our environment and our health by talking about coal tar sealants with your family, friends, and neighbors.
