As one of the most prominent asphalt pavement contracting companies in Ontario, Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc. is proud to announce that we’ve recently extended our comprehensive high quality services to include residential properties. We offer a wide variety of exceptional asphalt-related services including driveway sealing, general asphalt repairs, oil stain treatment, crack sealing, and catch basin repairs. With our state-of-the-art equipment and tried and true industry techniques, our work can’t be easily duplicated by amateurs. It takes a great deal of training, skill, and experience to properly repair asphalt which is why certain jobs are better left to the professionals.
Driveway and Crack Sealing
Our driveway sealing process is similar to the one we use for commercial parking lots and major roadways, except it’s one a smaller scale. First, we identify the type of crack we’re dealing with and then use an industrial high torque Marathon carbide-tip crack routing machine to rout the crack. This gives us better control during the filling process. Then we eradicate all debris and dust particles from the crack and surrounding area to guarantee the sealant will bond correctly with the asphalt. Before sealing can commence, we always closely inspect the crack to make sure there’s no debris left behind. Specialized mobile material applicators are then used to apply the sealant to the crack and ensure that it’s strong enough to fill the gap indefinitely.
Asphalt repairs are our speciality! Regular asphalt maintenance is absolutely crucial to extending the lifespan of your driveway and we’re just the right contractors for the job. From evening out your pavement to repairing cracks or simply repaving your driveway to keep it looking and functioning like new, we’re ready to take on any job, big or small.
Oil Stain Treatment
Oil stains are inevitable on driveways and sometimes they might run deeper below the surface than you can tell, which could ruin the integrity of your asphalt. At Sure-Seal, we implement a two-step process to remove oil stains completely. We start by using a torch to burn off the surface oil, which effectively reduces the saturation of the oil in the asphalt. Then, we carefully coat the oil stain with a specially formulated acrylic-based primer. This bonds to the asphalt and creates a barrier between the sealcoat and the surface, preventing the oil from penetrating the freshly sealed surface. If the oil is extremely saturated and still wet to the touch, that part of the asphalt will most likely need to be cut and patched for maximum results. Our go-to asphalt protection product is POLY-TAR and BlackDiamond XL Sealcoat.
Catch Basin Repair
You probably don’t think about your catch basin much until it’s in need of repairs. When that time comes, Sure-Seal is ready for the challenge. Procrastinating on fixing your clogged or damaged catch basin is a mistake because this mechanism is responsible for draining any excess rain water on your driveway. If left stagnant, this water will eventually penetrate beneath the surface of your driveway and compromise its structural integrity by eroding it. Luckily, we have an elaborate five-step process for repairing catch basins.
