Find answers to frequently asked questions about asphalt maintenance services.
When is the best time to treat pavement?
Pavement is best preserved early in its life. We recommend treatment within 1-2 years after placement, and subsequent treatments every 5-10 years. Crack sealing is commonly needed every 2 to 3 years to prevent water from entering the base. Parking lot striping is typically recommended every 2-3 years, depending on traffic conditions.

We are a family owned and operated company whose attention to detail and pride are simply unmatched. We impress our customers by meticulous preparation and application of our quality materials. We have state of the art equipment and highly trained personnel to provide results that will last far longer than you will see elsewhere.
Cost per square foot?
Price can vary depending on quality and quantity of pavement to be treated. Different applications are used depending on pavement quality, traffic, frictional needs, quantity, and location. Typically, treatments range from .16 to .50 per square foot.
What causes asphalt deterioration and how do I prevent it?
The elements that commonly deteriorate asphalt: traffic, weather conditions, normal wear and tear, and chemical spills/oil leakage.
What's the warranty?
We provide a written warranty of up to 5 years depending on the quality of the pavement and expected traffic wear.
What components make up your sealcoat product?
Sealcoat is made up of asphalt emulsion, finely crushed slate, mineral fillers, polymers, and water for workability.
What is the best way to repair deep cracks or potholes?
The best treatment for wide or deep cracks (over 1½”) is a hot pour mastic material. Mastic provides flexibility, while adding structural integrity back to the pavement. Shallow pot holes also benefit from mastic from a cost and performance standpoint.
What is the difference between Sealcoat and Slurry?
Caden and his team did a great job for us. They delivered just what they said and on time. The parking lot looks wonderful. Very happy with their work and will use them in the future.
We felt that Andersen’s did everything they said they were going to do and their workmanship and communication was superior. They showed up when they said they would and finished on schedule and we are happy.
Want to praise you guys for a job well done! Our slurry that you put on 2 years ago has gone through 2 nasty construction projects and 2 very salty winters and still no breaking down. Thanks for putting your personal touch into the work you do and using quality products that don’t just paint the asphalt black for a season!!
Don’t look anywhere else! These are the guys you want doing the job for you! I couldn’t be happier with how my project turned out. They were always on time and professional. The quality of work is outstanding. They are truly perfectionist which is hard to come by these days! I’d recommend Andersen Asphalt to anyone!
They recently crack sealed and seal coated our HOA parking lot and it looks great. They were fast and worked great with our tight schedule to get in and out quickly and still do a high quality job.
