It's important to note that most of the issues addressed here are very rare on sealcoating jobs, but contractors might encounter one or more of them over the course of a long career in the business.
It's also important to realize that a number of factors can contribute to these concerns. Factors that pertain to these "frequently asked questions" include:
- Environment (weather, sprinkler irrigation nearby, etc),
- An issue with sealcoat material,
- Surface conditions, or
- Improper application of the sealcoat.
So here are 10 situations you might encounter, with possible explanations for each of them. By analyizing the possible causes contractors can not only determine what caused a problem on a recently sealcoated pavement – they can probably prevent the problem from occurring in the future.
