Technology Behind Asphalt Sealcoating

Sealcoating Technology

Harsh weather conditions and repeated use of roads and driveways often result in cracks and uneven surfaces in the asphalt surface, leading to a loss of aesthetic appeal and an increased chance of accidents.  If you leave your driveway or parking unattended, in time it will fully deteriorate, and you will need to do extensive repairs, which often involves completely replacing the asphalt.  It is far less expensive to invest in a protective seal coat, which will ensure your driveway stays crack-free and retain its uniform smoothness.  Sealcoating should be done by a professional, so we reached out to Brandon who has been sealcoating Houston for over a decade.  He is going to share some great information with us today regarding seal coating.

Interesting Home Gadgets

Bring on the Robotics

When you typically think of contemporary robotics, the first image that comes to mind might be of a vehicle assembly line, now all but devoid of human laborers, or the breakthroughs being made by NASA. Many do not realize that robotic technology is much closer to home, and utilized by gadgets that may even be stashed away in a toolbox in your very own garage.

Laser Level

levelOne such gadget is the laser level, an often tripod mounted (although there are handheld varieties as well) level that projects a laser beam along a horizontal or vertical surface. Once the tripod itself has been leveled, the beam is switched on and a straight line is projected on the target surface, allowing the user to verify that anything from a picture frame to a wall stud is perfectly level.
