Chip Seal

Arlington’s Number One Chip Seal Service

Arlington Paving & Sealcoat provides top-of-the-line driveway chip seal, commercial chip seal and more to our valued Arlington clients. Chip sealing (sometimes called tar and chip) is an affordable, convenient, and low-maintenance alternative to traditional asphalt pavement.

When asphalt becomes cracked, it allows water, oil, gas, dirt, and other debris to seep into the pavement and cause to erode and degrade your asphalt. If cracks are not promptly repaired and sealed, the damage could lead to an extremely costly replacement down the line. We offer professional and affordable asphalt chip sealing overlays that will help prevent your asphalt from sustaining more damage, and smooth out the surface for a better look and smoother ride for traffic.

What is Chip Sealing?

Chip sealing is done by applying liquid asphalt to your pavement followed by a layer of crushed aggregate made up of small stone chips. Then this is rolled by pneumatic rollers to press the aggregate into the liquid asphalt. When used as an overlay, it creates a new layer over the damaged pavement. It is designed to lengthen the lifespan of roads, parking lots, and driveways, and provides a smooth and durable surface for traffic.

Though it gives an appearance of gravel, it is different in that the aggregate is rolled into a hot asphalt or tar mixture. Therefore, the stones cannot be swept or blown away like traditional gravel. The result is a surface that has the appearance and traction of gravel with a more reliable and long-lasting design.

Benefits Of Chip Sealing

Chip sealing asphalt brings many advantages including:

Beautification – Chip sealing provides an aesthetic to your pavement that many find desirable. It provides a more natural or rustic look than traditional asphalt pavement.

Cost – Installing chip seal is significantly less expensive that installing asphalt.

Minimal Maintenance – Applying chip seal removes the need for regular sealcoating.

High Traction – The rough and gritty nature of chip seal gives it superior wet weather traction for walking or driving.

Temperature – Chip seal is lighter in color, and does not absorb as much heat as a blacktop.

Convenience – After installation, chip seal can be driven on immediately, and doesn’t need time to harden. It is also quick and easy to install, making it a great option for businesses that don’t want any down time.

Chip Seal Driveways

Chip seal driveways are an attractive alternative to asphalt and concrete. It is incredibly affordable, resistant to damage, and has a long lifespan without the need for sealcoating and fewer repairs. They tend to maintain their look for longer than asphalt with minimal maintenance. If you like the look of chip seal, consider choosing it for your driveway over traditional pavements.

Chip seal driveways are particularly suited to the Texas climate. Among the weaknesses of chip seal over asphalt is it needs a warm temperature to be installed, and snow plowing can damage the surface. Here in Arlington, we have the warm weather that greatly benefits chip and seal driveway owners.


How Long Does Chip Seal Last?

The lifetime of a chip seal pavement or driveway can vary widely depending upon environmental and weather conditions, the amount of traffic, and the amount of aggregate used. On a low-traffic driveway, chip seal will last a considerable amount of time.

The average lifetime of tar and chip pavement is around eight years which is considerably shorter than asphalt.

However, asphalt's longevity is dependent on regular crack repair, maintenance, and sealcoating that is unnecessary for chip and seal. Combined with its low installation costs and convenience, it is a great option for residential and commercial pavements, in particular for those who enjoy the country road gravel look.
