WHY DO I NEED TO SEAL MY DRIVEWAY/PARKING LOT? 2018-05-30T03:10:40+00:00

The driveway is usually one of the most overlooked pieces of a property, and yet it has one of the biggest impacts on the way your greatest investment is seen by buyers (if you’re selling), friends, and neighbors. A well-done seal protects the driveway and foundation for several years and can immediately increase a home’s perceived value by $10,000-$25,000! All for a fraction of that cost. Most home sellers don’t know this and potentially lose out on THOUSANDS of dollars they could have easily earned on the sale of their home.

Sealing your driveway gives you five main benefits:

  • It adds a protective layer over your asphalt preventing water from seeping in and cracking your driveway as it freezes. If this is allowed to continue water may seep into the foundation and cause irreversible damage.
  • It potentially saves you thousands of dollars that would be spent, re-paving a driveway that is pushed past the point of repair.
  • It adds YEARS to the life of any driveway.
  • Your driveway is the first thing people see and if it looks impeccable your house will look the best on the street!
  • If the job is done correctly. Your homes perceived value could increase $10,000-$25,000!

At S.G.C we always ensure your driveway/parking lot is sealed correctly. We have a 2-year 100% satisfaction guarantee. We are the only company to offer this type of guarantee, that is how confident we are in our craftsmanship.

YOU GAVE US A QUOTE FOR OUR DRIVEWAY AND __X__ COMPANY QUOTED US LOWER, WHY IS YOURS HIGHER? 2018-05-30T03:11:36+00:00

You may save tens of dollars with a cheaper company but the seal will wash away with the rain in 6 months! Our seal has a 2-Year Satisfaction Guarantee (which no other company offers), so they may beat us on price but nobody can beat us on value. The tens of dollars saved now may cost hundreds or thousands later on.

Certain companies may be able to offer lower rates, but it is always at the expense of quality, these companies use oil-based sealers that only last 6 months. Plus, they water down this sealer so it’s even shorter!

At S.G.C we always do your driveway the RIGHT way. Amongst competing companies in the GTA and across Southern Ontario we are a mid-priced company, but we are unbeatable in VALUE.

WHY DON’T I JUST BUY SOME SEALER AT THE STORE AND DO IT MYSELF? 2018-05-30T03:12:57+00:00

To be frank, store-bought sealer is designed by large corporations with one goal in mind. To get you, the consumer, to purchase more product. The sealer bought in store isn’t nearly as good as commercial-grade sealer, it’s designed to look good for a few months then crack and peel much sooner than what it says on the label. Home Depot sells some sealer and the reviews are hardly ever good.

Plus, every driveway is different and it would be near impossible to create a sealer good enough to work for every type of driveway. The common driveway in one area may be totally different in another. Some store-bought sealers actually decrease a homes perceived value by running in the rain and being expensive to remove. There is no store-grade sealer for sale we would ever recommend one of our clients.

I HAVE LANDSCAPING/GRASS/STONEWORK AROUND MY DRIVEWAY, I’M WORRIED SEALER WILL GET ON THEM. 2018-05-30T03:13:47+00:00

Our work is always done by hand this gives us a level of care and accuracy that companies using industrial machinery cannot match. We understand the worry, and take just as much pride in creating an aesthetically pleasing job as we do a functional one. Just to be on the safe side we always carry a special liquid cleaner with us that is capable of removing sealer off any surface (we have never had to use this on a job).

I AM QUITE BUSY. HOW LONG DOES A DRIVEWAY SEALING TAKE? 2018-05-30T03:14:23+00:00

On a standard 4-car driveway we are hard at work sealing for a good hour. A solid portion of that time is spent cleaning the surrounding area and preparation to ensure your driveway looks outstanding once were done!

WHY SHOULD I PRESSURE WASH MY PROPERTY? 2018-05-30T03:16:26+00:00

There are many reasons you should get your property professionally pressure-washed regularly. Sure you can do it yourself, but without the right equipment it will be incredibly time consuming and may create expensive issues if the water seeps into areas it should not.

Here are three main reasons you should regularly pressure-wash your property:

Pressure-washing saves you money! It’s simply a smart preventative measure to take, homes deteriorate over time and this is largely due to buildups of mold, mildew and substances that erode at walls and foundations. Pressure-washing is a cheap and efficient way to extend the life of your home and save yourself thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars.
Prevents serious damage to your biggest investment. Winter grime can seriously erode a home and decrease its value. Letting stains or grime sit over time could cause costly and irreversible damage to your property.
Increases the perceived value of your investment. This is a big one for people looking to sell their property, a clean home seems MUCH more enticing and a whole lot more valuable than a dirty or even average home. Why waste thousands on a big home renovation when you can spend a fraction of that giving your entire home a makeover making the first impression the best that it can be!
At S.G.C we bring experience, quality and care to each pressure-wash job. Ensuring that it is done correctly to prevent any costly and time-consuming errors.
