Chip Seal

What Is Chip Seal?

Chip Seal (or seal coating), is the application of a special protective wearing surface to an existing pavement. A dump truck full of chips (gravel) locks on to the chip spreader and is pulled backwards. A thin layer of liquid asphalt is sprayed down in front of the chip spreader to adhere to the surface. Chip seal can be done with colored stone or traditional gravel, enhancing any surface.
