• Asphalt Sealcoating - James Kurpiel Inc.

When it comes to any pavement management plan; Sealcoating is at the top of the list. Sealcoating, in itself, consists of the application of either a coal tar pitch or asphalt cement that is mixed with inert fillers, water emulsifying agents and/or additives. This mixture, applied in thin coats protects off-highway pavement surfaces against oil, gasoline, salt, water and ultraviolet rays.

Asphalt is in a constant battle against the sun and water. The sun dries out the natural oils essential for the pavements strength and flexibility. Water is the main enemy of asphalt because of the freeze and thaw cycle. Water expands as it freezes and contracts as it melts. This cycle is extremely damaging to a porous surface such as asphalt. Even occasional rain will break down and wash away the asphalt binder in time

Asphalt is highly susceptible to problems with sun, water, ice / snow, and traffic. The deterioration begins as soon as asphalt is installed and progresses quickly as time goes on. Watch for the color to turn from a rich black color to a gray after just a few months. Once the asphalt binder has been lost, the surface will become brittle and start to come apart causing the flexibility to lessen and cracks will appear. Luckily, there is a way to prevent this water damage to happen and to prolong the life of your asphalt.

By seal coating, we are providing a flexible, stable and homogeneous compound to act as a barrier for asphalt surfaces from the damaging effects of weather. Just as we put on sunscreen on our skin for protection from the sun, we put seal coating on asphalt to protest it from the same damaging rays. Seal coating added to the porous surface of asphalt keeps water from penetrating its structure and delays the damage caused by the sun. If cracks have already appeared, seal coating will prevent those cracks from lengthening and widening.

New asphalt also needs to be seal coated. Allow the new pavement to cure for 60 to 90 days and then have the surface seal coated. Depending on the condition of your asphalt and the amount of traffic exposure you have, your asphalt should be seal coated 2 to 5 years to maximize protection. A fresh seal coating also replenishes the brand new paved look of your asphalt and enhances the curb appeal of your property.

What our “clientele” say

This is where the pros go go buy product. Compared to the big orange store, Kurpiel sells the professional products that are much better quality at a lower price. And Cassie and Jim are there to walk you through every step of your job and answer questions all the time. Its like night and day. If you want the best products at the best price as well as professional advice you would be lucky to buy here. It really is the secret of the pros. They helped me to choose the best products and save a driveway that truly needed at the least a $7000 overlay if not a complete redo. I spent a few hundred dollar in products and a few days in labor, probably twice over. But I truly saved the driveway and they helped me find the best pro to seal it since they are mostly commercial now.

First of all as a HOA board we are required to get multiple bids for our paving project. Of all the owners who came to give us an estimate and proposal…Jim Kurpiel was by far the nicest and most knowledgeable . His estimate was in the ballpark monetarily but offered far more than the others. All his workers were excellent and courteous.. Jim was on the job overseeing everything every day. A complete pleasure to work with and an excellent job well done. We would give him a big “10” in all areas.

This summer, I used Kurpiel paving to rip out my driveway and pour a new one. They did an excellent job from start to finish. Yesterday, I had an issue with a neighbor regarding my driveway. Nothing Kurpiel did wrong but I emailed Jim for some advice. He responded within a few hours and despite his busy schedule, he personally stopped by my house this morning to take a look. Although there was nothing wrong with the work they did, Jim resolved the issue for me free of charge. He went above and beyond to help me out. I highly recommend Kurpiel Paving. This is my first time posting a google review. Because of Jim’s kindness today I want to show my appreciation and share my positive experience with Jim’s company.

Jim runs his business in a manner that makes customer satisfaction a top priority. His crew performed a driveway resurface in which my old pavement was dug up and removed, and new pavement was laid. He requested that we let the gravel sit for a couple weeks prior to setting the new surface so he could observe how the subbase settled. I spoke to other pros who said that not all contractors take the time to do this, but James and his crew were doing the job the “right way” so my driveway would last. His men were always on time, respectful of my property, and left the site clean both times. Jim is a personable and professional gentleman, and I would absolutely recommend this business to others. BTW- the finished project was top notch. Couldn’t be happier.

Excellent job and very professional crew. I would definitely use them again on my future projects.

James Kurpiel Inc. did an excellent job on my driveway! They were prompt, easy to get in touch with and great to work with. Highly recommend!

These guys do great work! Professional, clean, and courteous!

This company was a true pleasure to work with. Do not hesitate to call them! They did an AMAZING job! Thanks again!

Jim and his team did a fantastic job. Great design, professional on time and great value.

Kurpiel and their associates were professional and fair. The work they did on our driveway had my neighbors, some from blocks away, asking for their info. Clean, efficient, reasonable and perfectly done. Highly recommended.

Jim and his crew are friendly, professional, honest, and reliable. From the estimate to driveway completion, the process was absolutely seamless! The driveway looks great and they left our property clean which was respectful. We appreciated how Jim and Casey were in frequent communication with us about scheduling, logistics and any questions. If only this company could do all our home repairs and renovations!

This is the best contractor we have ever dealt with. We got many estimates and he was also the best price which is a plus! He tore out our old black top driveway regraded and put in a beautiful new driveway complete with Belgian block border abd border for our landscaping. The project had many bumps, due to no fault of theirs bc we were having other work done and kept having problems which needed to push the driveway repaving back months! At the end, he had to repair and regrade some of the gravel bc it was laid at the beginning of the project but he did it with no extra charge!- crazy right! The driveway looks perfect! He came when he said he would, was always professional and we highly recommend his services!!! He also got the permits and closed the permits. Easy peasy!

Very professional organization. Completely repaved my driveway, and it looks great!

Pleasure to deal with. Exceptional work.
