How often is fog seal maintenance required?

Because the asphalt that is used for a fog seal is treated to become more rigid than the asphalt used in a seal coat, it will crack more frequently. Therefore, it is anticipated that a resurfacing of the cul-de-sacs will occur every 2 to 3 years. Seal Coat maintenance is often performed on an 8 to 10 year basis. If preventive maintenance (crack sealing and fog seal resurfacing) is conducted on Williamson County roads and streets on a routine basis, the existing pavement structure will last for many decades.
