Driveways Chicago IL I built my house three decades ago and I haven’t had a lot of maintenance problems. But one constant issue is my blacktop driveway. My city gets very cold in December, and the snow causes a lot of damage on the asphalt, creating a topographic map next to my house. This not only looks ugly but it increases wear and tear on my vehicles. Repairing my driveway became something I had to do every few years. This was agitating and damaging to my bank account. Finally, I decided to research into more asphalt repair contractors and I’m happy I did it. I discovered one asphalt company who told me about a cash and headache-saving alternative. It’s called clearcoating. Clearcoating offers protection from damaging natural elements such as moisture and ultraviolet oxidation. That asphalt damage I mentioned? Clearcoating is the definite solution. Fifteen years since the paving company put clearcoating on my driveway I haven’t had one issue with my asphalt. It’s great driving on smooth asphalt.
