3 Ways Your Asphalt Driveway Can Help Sell Your Home

Posted by J. Mrugacz on Apr 22, 2014

Did you know that your driveway can actually help you sell a home? If properly tended and pleasantly landscaped, an asphalt driveway has curb appeal that tells viewers it is part of an attractive, well-maintained home and neighborhood. However, a driveway that is cracked, potted and weedy doesn't encourage potential buyers. A shabby driveway may be cause to wonder whether other parts of your home that aren’t seen are equally neglected.

Posted by J. Mrugacz on Aug 12, 2013

From discussions we've had with our customers, it seems that many of them don't understand the difference between an asphalt overlay and asphalt sealcoating. That's understandable – they're similar processes, both used for the repair and maintenance of your asphalt.

So, for our blog today, let's take a quick look at the difference between overlays and sealcoats! Asking for one when you only need the other could lead to needless costs.

Posted by J. Mrugacz on Jun 10, 2013

Blacktop sealcoating is easily one of the best investments a homeowner or business can make into the longevity of their asphalt. Like how lacquer sets a piece of wood, sealcoating keeps the elements out of your blacktop, giving it a much longer lifespan.

It's known that you need to get new sealcoating every few years as it wears out, but many don't know that there are simple things you can do to extend your sealcoat investment!

How Sealcoating Asphalt Helps Prevent Water Damage

Posted by J. Mrugacz on Jun 3, 2013

Water is an amazing and powerful force, essential to life.  But it’s also the primary agent of entropy for other materials, eroding way surfaces or getting inside them and damaging from the inside out.  Given enough time, a smooth surface can become like the Grand Canyon, just from the power of water. 

While the Grand Canyon might be awe-inspiring, this same force applied to a surface you need to remain smooth can be a real issue.  You certainly don’t want your driveway or business parking lot to have anything in common with that craggy canyon!  Fortunately, we here at Wolf know how to keep water damage at bay.
