The Benefits of Chip Sealing
Chip sealing is an effective, affordable solution trusted by residential, commercial and municipal clients. Count on chip sealing for the following benefits:
Low Cost – chip sealing is around a fourth to a fifth of the cost of a conventional asphalt overlay, offering a huge cost savings to customers.
Less Maintenance – chip sealing causes cracks to reseal during hot weather.
Better Traction – the texture of chip seal provides resistance to skidding, ensuring more safety on otherwise dangerous roads.
Lower Temperatures – chip seal doesn’t absorb heat like normal asphalt, meaning it tends to be cooler.
No Downtime – chip seal is a quick process and hardens quickly, which means you can use the surface much sooner.
Chip Sealing in Texas: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the chip sealing process like?
A: First, debris is removed from the surface, the area is cleaned and holes are patched. Then, we spray the area with hot liquid asphalt and use a chip spreader to apply the crushed gravel. Last, a heavy roller is used to compress loose gravel to make a smooth surface.
Q: How does chip sealing enhance safety?
A: Chip sealing creates a moisture barrier to protect layers below from damage from the elements. Also, the surface becomes skid-resistant.
Q: Why not just go with a conventional asphalt overlay?
A: Chip sealing is far more affordable, as the installation process is different from conventional asphalt surfacing.
Q: How do I know if chip sealing is right for my driveway?
A: Most paved driveways are ideal for chip sealing. Just call our team and we can assess your driveway and let you know if this process will work for you.
Q: When would chip sealing not be effective?
A: If you want the look of regular asphalt paving, chip sealing may not be the right option for you. It can also be harder to maintain.
Q: How long will it be until I can use the chip-sealed surface?
A: Most chip-sealed surfaces can be used within one to three hours.
