Frequently asked questions
How is this different from seal coating?
While the application of a seal coat is a quick and astetically pleasing option for your asphalt upkeep, it does nothing to prolong the life of your asphalt. Our rejuvenator penetrates deep into the asphalt matrix. This increases flexibility and longevity, as well as, lowers the brittleness.
Is this a cost effective solution?
The typical conventional water-based surface treatment has an average cost of $0.10-$0.15 per sq.ft. and you will watch your investment wash down the drain over the course of just a couple years being worn down by trafic and weather conditions.
The continued re-application and build up on the surface causes the asphalt to harden and small cracking will become evident.
The average cost for the rejuvenation treatment is $0.15-$0.20 per sq. foot. While the lower cost for a water-based solution may seem ideal, it will aslo need to be applied every 3 years while compared to the rejuvenator which has a reapplication process of every 5 years. One must compare the benefit derived in extending the pavement's life itself as well as the additional time between applications. It is proven that the rejuvenator is the most cost effective in the long run.
Are there any environmental concerns with the Rejuvenator?
According to Jeffrey L. Leptrone Colonel USAF Director of Technical Support, "A penetrating rejuvenator of this type leaves little to no residual material on the serface to wash off and may be reapplied as often as necessary, without the buildup on the surface of the pavement."
CPR rejuvenator has never registered near or above state DEP and Federal EPA guide lines concerning air and water quality monitoring.
Why should I care about any of this? My pavement looks fine right now...
You can do nothing and wait for the pavement to deteriorate until milling/paving is necessary. Asphalt pavement milling/paving is recommended every 10-12 years and has an average cost of $1.30 to $1.75 per sq. ft. This is proven to be the most expensive option.
Should this timely step be missed, the pavement may require complete removal and replacement at a much higher cost of $4.00-$5.00 per sq. ft.
