I have oil stains on my driveway do those need to be treated?
Yes they do. For the sealer to adhere to the asphalt all oil stains need to be treated with a primer.
Do I need to be home when they come to seal my driveway?
No, you do not. Do to the fact that we do this work during the week for residential customers most of them are out of the home at the time of service. We just ask that you leave payment for the guys to grab when they are done. For our commercial customers most of you are only open from Monday to Friday so we would then come out to you on the weekends. We also do make exceptions to customers that have different schedules for which we can make allowances at that time.
Do they cut back the over grown grass from the side of the driveway?
Yes we do. Our sealcoaters cut away all over grown grass to expose more of your asphalt and enhance the appearance of your property.
But my driveway has rocks and leaves on it?
Thats ok, we use high powered blowers and asphalt brooms to scrub away all dirt and leaves from the driveway. This is an important part to the perfect seal!
What time will my appointment be?
Walsh Sealcoating does not make scheduled appointments by the hour, we schedule for the day of the week only. The reason for this is some driveways/parking lots need some extra attention. Our standard of quality takes time and we want to implement quality work on every job.
What happens if it rains?
Living in Illinois we all know that the weather is very unpredictable and we try to keep all of our appointments. In case of poor weather Walsh Sealcoating will call to inform you of any cancellations and about rescheduling. We do not start to call and cancel till at least 10 am the day of your appointment.
Why should I keep up with my driveway/parking lot sealcoating?
Well there many reasons to keep up on the maintenance of your asphalt these are just the top 4:
The number one reason to get your asphalt sealed regularly is curb appeal. You know the old saying " you only get one chance to make a first impression."
Another reason to seal is it will help to increase property values as well as be eye-appealing to prospective patrons,
Many of us need to save money now more than ever, and your driveway/parking lot is no exception to the rule. Proper driveway/parking lot maintenance will help preserve your driveway for many years to come.
Every year your driveway/parking lot endures heavy traffic, scorching sun rays, bitter freezing winters and heavy rain fall, to help in preventing asphalt deterioration you need to be sealed.

I just had my driveway sealcoated (and cracks filled) by Walsh sealcoating. My driveway was in pretty bad shape as it had not been sealcoated in years and had tons of weeds growing through the cracks. They did an awesome job and I was very impressed with the finished driveway! I had bricks lining the driveway that you couldn't even see. Now, the blacktop goes neatly up to the bricks and looks like new.
They are also very professional. They stick to their schedule, answer your questions and give you a call the day before with schedule window.
Price was really reasonable too.

My driveway looks brand new! Pricing is right in line with other local contractors but chose them for the job because the gave the most comprehensive quote. No guessing what is included or not. Only reason for 4 star is that their communication is a little lacking and they took the longest to get back to me after requesting a quote. I will definitely use them next year to keep my driveway looking it's best.

It was hard to find a company that would come and do seal coating for a 6 spot parking lot for a condo association in Chicago. Alexandria was very professional. We did the the sealcoating and then an extensive and extreme thunderstorms ruin some of the sealcoating. The crew came out bright and early within a couple of days to fix the problem. The crew was attentive and professional. I will call them with anytime I need my parking lot redone.
Thanks for the great job.

I will use them every time I get this done. Thank you again Walsh my house looks so pretty. Cant wait till they come and do the deck......

We used Walsh Sealcoating to seal our patio. What a great job. It was a 2 day job that cleaned out the old sand, then replaced it with new special sand and then sealed it with a special coating. The patio looks as good if not better than when it was first put in. A fair price to get it done. Really happy with the work and professionalism of the company.

I have used the services from Walsh for over two years for both snow removal and sealcoating. I have always appreciated the quality of their work and the professionalism that they have demonstrated in their work for me. They have always been reliable and very competitive in their pricing. I would recommend very highly the use of their services.

Good Work! Job well done professonally good.
The unsolicited comments we receive from our valued customers highlight the outstanding level of service you get when selecting Walsh Sealcoating.
Here are two testimonials from Buttonwood Residents who have used this service.
"I can say I have used this service just about every year and I think it's
very good. He's not flying through and he does a very nice job. I'm very
grateful not to have to do this myself. AND this is a bargain. My folks pay
a lot more in Downers."
" I have been working with Walsh for seven years and have never had a complaint from any participant in the program. He does a quality job, is very careful when sealing next to concrete and leaves no brush marks. He states that drives only need sealing every other year. However many have it done each year only for looks. He uses professional quality material and he is a professional. Should anyone desire additional information I would be glad to respond to their email."

Thank you Alex and Jason.
GOOD NEWS. I FINALLY DISCOVERED A COMPANY, WALSH SEALCOATING, THAT NOT ONLY MET MY EXPECTATIONS, BUT TRULY EXCEEDED THEM. THEY TRANSFORMED THE EYE SORE I CALLED MY DRIVEWAY BACK TO SOMETHING I AM PLEASED TO HAVE MY FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS DRIVE ON. WALSH WORKED THEIR MAGIC ON NUMEROUS CRACKS AND POTHOLES AND RESTORED MY DRIVEWAY TO ITS' FORMER BEAUTY. ALEX, MY CONTACT AT WALSH, WALKED ME STEP BY STEP THROUGH THE PROCESS AND INSURRED MY COMPLETE SATISFACTION WITH THE PROJECT. WHEN YOU NEED SEALCOATING AND DRIVEWAY REPAIR I BELIEVE YOU NEED ONLY CALL WALSH SEALCOATING. WHEN YOU CALL TELL ALEX I SAID HI AND THANKS.
FIRST RATE, neat and clean. They will fix problems if they occur afterwards as most companies won't... They do what they say, look no further for your Sealcoating jobs...Commercial jobs at very competitive rates... Gina in Villa Park
