Spray sealcoating machines are an effective way to control how much sealcoating spray is used on an asphalt surface. While these machines do an excellent job, it is important to understand that applying sealcoating through the more traditional method of using a squeegee also has its benefits.
When sealcoating asphalt with a lot of surface cracks, doing the job by hand using a squeegee will deliver better results. The squeegee will enable you to put more pressure on the sealant and allow it to more effectively fill these cracks.
In addition, for most standard sealcoating jobs, you will typically achieve the best possible results by applying 2 coats – the first coat should be done by hand using a squeegee and the second coat should be done with a spray sealcoating machine. This dual method will provide better protection for your asphalt surface, and the results will last considerably longer.
