Boise Seal Coating

As human beings, we each have a long list of things we need to take care of, and every day requires a little bit of maintenance for one thing or another. We have to take care of our bodies, and we do that by working out and eating right. We have to take care of our minds, so we read, watch documentaries, play challenging games. We also have to take care of the dog, the house, the bills, the car--the list can, some days, seem to stretch on for miles. But one thing that rarely makes that list...

As drivers, as passengers, and simply as humans, we have an intricate relationship with roads. We drive on them, yes. But we also ride bikes on them, walk next to them, use them to navigate, and define our towns, cities, and even states by the roads that run through. It's true that we have a strange and complex relationship with the road, and what happens to the road will affect us, too. That's why, when we hear about "chip sealing," we naturally have countless questions.

The Chip...

We rely on roads more than we know. Every day, we battle traffic to get wherever we need to go, and then battle traffic to get back again--but it is because of roads that any of this is possible. We learn the names of roads, know where they're going, know which other roads they intersect and learn so much about how crowded they are that we know just which ones to avoid. These simple paths of asphalt decorated with white and yellow lines are important parts of daily life, but the thing is, we...

From the moment we first get our license, it's all about the car. We focus on make and model and passengers and insurance, and, most importantly, how to stay safe with all of the other cars surrounding us. We obsess over the perfect paint-job and envy those who speed past us in gorgeous sports cars. It's true: driving is a big part of our lives, but it can't be "all about the car." The road, too, deserves a fair portion of our attention—after all, it is this silent, snaking path of asphalt,...

At the heart of almost everything we do, there is a road. Roads unite the world, connecting people to their homes, their favorite stores, their travel destinations, and, most importantly, to each other. Although most of us will use a variety of roads every day, we rarely stop to give much thought to those stretches of painted asphalt that can lead us almost anywhere we want to go. Today, we'll take a close look at the construction of asphalt pavements--not only for a better appreciation of...

When we slip behind the steering wheel, our attention must automatically be everywhere at once: our car, our passengers, the other drivers, the weather conditions--the list is almost endless. However, one of the most important parts of driving is our relationship with the road itself. As drivers, we must pay a lot of attention to the road. Although it is, in its simplest form, a stretch of asphalt that has been lovingly adorned with painted lines and arrows, the road is one of the things we...

In the United States, concrete and asphalt account for ninety percent of driveways. Both substances crack and discolor over time. Cracks result from time and weather, especially in unsealed driveways. When water seeps through the...
