A Few Sealcoating Products You Need (and Don’t)

When you are looking to sealcoat your pavement, it is important to ensure that you are using the right sealcoating products. With so many different products you need to make sure that you have the right information to make the right purchase for your project.

What products are best for you is highly dependent on the type of job you are undertaking. If let’s say, you are about to sealcoat your driveway, you may want to consider purchasing less expensive and easier to use products. However, if you are a professional contractor and are sealcoating something like a large parking lot, or a long stretch of road, you would likely need a set of high-end products.

Sealcoating Products

One such sealcoating products is a sprayer; this device is a fantastic way to sealcoat larger projects. The sprayer can be sold in a smaller, more manageable size that can be used by any do-it-yourself (DIY) homeowner. Sprayers can significantly increase your efficiency and save you a lot of time in the sealcoat application. Saving time and increasing your efficiency is always imperative for a contractor so they can finish a job well, and move onto the next one. However, if you are sealcoating your driveway then you probably do not need to increase your efficiency as a contractor would, and wouldn’t need to buy a sprayer. Homeowners should purchase and use a simple, inexpensive squeegee to apply the sealcoat to the pavement.

Another thing to consider is the amount of sealcoat that you need for the job you are doing. If you are a DIY homeowner, then you will likely only require a set amount of sealcoat. You should only need to purchase a couple of buckets of sealcoat depending on the size of the area you will be sealcoating. Unless you own an incredibly large driveway or a professional contractor, these few buckets will be more than enough products to sealcoat. However, if you are a professional contractor (or you do own an incredibly large driveway), you will probably require a bit more sealcoating product. For larger scaled jobs, it may be best to utilize a large tank to carry your sealcoat.  This tank will assist greatly in limiting the amount, and frequency of trips you will need to take to stock up on your supply.

Whether you are a DIY homeowner applying sealcoat to your driveway, or if you are a professional contractor looking to make your next job faster and more productive, you need to make sure, above all, that you are using the right sealcoating products.
