Sealcoating: Our Process
When you need sealcoating for paved surfaces at your business, Daniel B. Krieg delivers. We have served the Harrisburg area since 1933 and provide quality results for commercial customers. In more than 80 years of serving Central Pennsylvania and beyond, we’ve learned that our customers value a streamlined process that takes the stress out of sealcoating.
There’s little to no prep work on your end, and we simply need a few ideal conditions for exceptional sealcoating. These include:
- Temperatures consistently above 65 degrees
- Dry surfaces — sprinklers should be turned off beforehand.
- Clear surfaces — refrain from fertilizing grass near the surface for a week ahead of time.
If you can’t close your entire parking lot, we can barricade it in sections to ensure our sealcoating process provides minimal disruption to your business. In about 24 hours after completion, you’ll have a beautifully sealcoated surface. To see learn morea bout our pavement sealing process in York, Harrisburg and surrounding regions, continue reading.
Step by Step to Fantastic Results
When we arrive at your business, our goal is to provide quality sealcoating while moving as efficiently as possible. We want to ensure that you get back to business quickly. To keep the process efficient, our sealcoating process includes seven steps:
Step 1 - Preparation of Edges: We start by using a power edger to trim and remove any grass or dirt along the edges of your parking lot. This allows us to seal up to the very edge of the pavement, giving a clean finished look.
Step 2 - Cleaning: Pavement sealer will not adhere to dirt or mud. We thoroughly clean your parking lot using robust equipment—walk behind blowers, rotary brooms, turbine blowers, and sweepers. (Not included: cleaning heavy construction debris or pressure washing.)
Step 3 - Crack Repair: Linear cracks are blown out with 185 CFM compressed air, then filled with a hot, rubberized crack filler that is designed to expand and contract with your pavement through freeze/thaw cycles. (Note: "Alligatored areas" of cracks cannot be crack filled—they will need to be removed and replaced.)
Step 4 - Primer Coat: Oil and grease spots are treated with a primer to allow for proper adhesion of the sealer.
Step 5 - Pedestrian Safety: The area to be sealed is closed off to traffic and pedestrians with cones, cone bars, barricades, and (if necessary) caution tape. It is the property owner's responsibility to notify all relevant people of our work ahead of time.
Step 6 - Sealcoat: Two coats of sealer are applied using a state-of-heart spray application. The trim is brushed by hand to reduce any possibility of overspray on walkways, curbs, or buildings. All roadway and driveway ends are given a clean, straight end for a professional look.
Step 7 - Line Paint: Parking lot lines are repainted as per existing. If the property owner wants a new layout painted, or any other changes, they will need to nofity us before we begin our work.

We recommend waiting 24 hours before driving or walking on your newly sealcoated surface. You may notice tire tracks on a recently sealed surface, which is normal — these tracks will disappear as the sealer cures over a one- to two-week period. Once that curing period ends, you can fully enjoy the beauty and benefits of a sealcoated surface.
Our one-year satisfaction guarantee on workmanship and materials will also provide you with peace of mind. Many of our customers wonder how often they should sealcoat. We advise customers to sealcoat once every three to four years as a general guideline, and feel free to contact us at any time for guidance.
