Seguin is located in the center of Guadalupe County at 29°34′28″N 97°57′55″W / 29.57444°N 97.96528°W / 29.57444; -97.96528 (29.574329, −97.965332). It is 35 miles (56 km) east-by-northeast of downtown San Antonio, on Interstate 10, which serves Seguin with five exits. It is approximately 50 miles (80 km) south of Austin on Highway 123, via Interstate 35, or 62 miles (100 km) by Highway 130, a toll road.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Seguin has a total area of 34.7 square miles (89.8 km), of which 34.5 square miles (89.3 km2) are land and 0.2 square miles (0.5 km), or 0.57%, are covered by water. The Guadalupe River flows through the southern side of the city, reaching the Gulf of Mexico south of Victoria.

The elevation at the courthouse is 522 feet (159 m) above mean sea level.

On the northern edge of the South Texas Plains, Seguin enjoys a mild winter. The sunny days of spring bring on spectacular shows of wildflowers from March into June. Like most of Central Texas, it suffers very hot, humid summers from June into September. Then cold fronts pushing down from the north usually trigger precipitation and make October a rainy month, bringing "a second spring" of wildflowers. At their worst, fall and winter have "northers", fast-moving cold fronts with wind, often rain, and rapid drops of temperature, frequently falling 30 °F (17 °C) or more during one day. Northers give way to warm spells, right through the winter.

Seguin was represented in the Texas House of Representatives from 1983 to 2010 by the Republican Edmund Kuempel. He was noted for helping to get the State of Texas to restore the 19th century mansion called Sebastopol and operate it as a Historic Site for 25 years. A native of Austin, businessman Kuempel died in office two days after being unopposed for reelection. John Kuempel, Edmund Kuempel's son, won the special election on December 14 of that year to succeed his father in the District 44 seat in the Texas House. He was reelected in 2012 and 2014.

Democrat Vicente Gonzalez has represented Guadalupe County in the U.S. House of Representatives as part of Texas' 15th Congressional District, since 2017. One of the "fajita" districts, the 15th runs in a narrow strip from Seguin down to McAllen in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

Seguin was the home of Dr. John E. Park, who experimented in construction using concrete made from local materials. The nearly 100 structures—the courthouse, schools, churches, homes, cisterns, walls, etc.—made up the largest concentration of early 19th-century concrete buildings in the United States. About 20 of them remain standing.

The use of concrete largely ended when the railroad arrived in 1876, bringing cheap lumber and the equipment needed for brick-making. The town had five brickworks, and the wooden buildings of downtown were completely replaced with brick by the beginning of World War I.

For almost 100 years, the town was dependent on the rich surrounding farmland and ranches. Then, the Texas oil boom came just as the Great Depression was taking down other towns and cities. The town commemorated its centennial by opening Max Starcke Park, with a golf course, a pavilion, picnic tables, and BBQ pits along a scenic river drive, and a curving dam that created a waterfall.

To preserve some of the historic character of the town, Seguin became one of the state's first Main Street cities, and the downtown district was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fine homes by leading architects J. Reily Gordon, Solon McAdoo, Leo M.J. Dielman, Atlee B. Ayers, and Marvin Eickenroht dating from the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century can be found on many streets. However, the city does not have any officially designated historic residential districts.

The postwar era had industrial development, including a small mill that turned scrap metal into construction products.

In 1972 Motorola built a plant to manufacture automotive electronics. It was bought by Continental AG in 2006, became Vitesco Technologies in 2021, and is the city's largest employer with 1,750 employees. Caterpillar opened a diesel engine assembly plant in 2008 which is the second largest employer.

The Seguin area was once inhabited by the native hunter-gatherer Native Americans of Texas. An ongoing archeological dig indicates campgrounds dating back 10,000 years or so, with trade items from Mexico and Arizona. The early visitors may have come to gather pecans, because the native trees bearing the tasty nut thrive in the river bottoms of the Guadalupe. By the time the first European explorers passed through, predominantly Tonkawas lived in the area, camping around the Guadalupe and other streams in the area. Eventually, Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo settlers started farms and ranches in the location that would become Seguin.

José Antonio Navarro, one of the earliest settlers and an important figure of Texas history, developed a ranch near Seguin. In 1831, land was granted to Umphries Branch by the Mexican government. The Branch and John Newton Sowell Sr. families settled in 1833 in the western part of Green DeWitt's colony. Sowell was a farmer, and in 1833 he and his brothers became the first Anglo-American immigrants to raise corn in future Guadalupe County.

Between 1827 and 1835, 22 families came to the area as part of the DeWitt Colony; by 1833, 40 land titles were in the region, 14 of which received grants directly from the Mexican government. In 1836, John Gladden King lived near Seguin. His farm neighbored the Sowells on the northwest and Branch on the southeast. A son, William Philip King, reportedly was part of a cannon crew and was the youngest defender killed during the Battle of the Alamo. These homesteads were abandoned in the Runaway Scrape.

The town of Seguin was founded August 12, 1838, 16 months after Texas won its independence at the Battle of San Jacinto, making it one of the oldest towns in Texas. Members of Mathew Caldwell's Gonzales Rangers acquired land originally granted to Umphries Branch, who had departed during the Runaway Scrape and sold his land to Joseph S. Martin.

At this time, the Seguin area was a part of Gonzales County, the remaining portion known as present-day Belmont. The Rangers had found this was a good halfway stop between their patrol points. The big oaks and walnut groves along the Walnut Branch, had become a familiar and pleasant location. It had been maintained as a base camp by the rangers since the early founding of the Dewitt Colony.

Under an ancient live oak, 33 Rangers signed the charter for the town. Many were surveyors who joined Joseph Martin in laying out the lots for the town. Its original name was Walnut Springs, but was changed just 6 months later to honor San Jacinto veteran and then a Senator of the Republic of Texas, Juan Seguín. The surveyors' plan for the city included a main north–south street that ran straight and flat for a mile and more. The streets form a grid, around a central square of two blocks, today's Courthouse Square and Central Park, formerly known as Market Square.

A tree called the Whipping Oak grows across from the courthouse. In the 19th century, runaway slaves and other criminals were bound to an iron ring embedded in the tree, then whipped as a punishment.

Manuel Flores, veteran of San Jacinto and brother-in-law of Juan Seguin, established a ranch just south of Seguin in 1838. It became a safe-haven for San Antonio families and a staging point for counterattack when Bexar was overrun in 1842 by Santa Anna's forces under Ráfael Vásquez and Adrian Woll.

Leading the resistance forces from this location was Texas Ranger John Coffee "Jack" Hays. When duty allowed, Hays was a familiar resident of Seguin. In 1843, Hays set up a gathering point at the "Walnut Branch Ranger Station in Seguin, where the classic Ranger character was born. He met Susan Calvert, whose father owned the Magnolia Hotel, where they married in April 1847.

Serving under Hays were two other famous Ranger residents of Seguin: Henry and Ben McCulloch. Their home known as "Hardscramble" still stands and was designated a Texas State Centennial historic site in 1936. Colonel James Clinton Neill, commander of the Alamo, was known to be buried here. The site was also historically marked during the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition.

Seguin was named the county seat, and Guadalupe County was organized, early in 1845, as Texas became a state. The first county judge was Michael H. Erskine. The town was incorporated in 1853, and a city government was organized under acting Mayor John R. King, until elections were held later that year and John D. Anderson became the first elected mayor.

A few years later, another town was laid out on the west side of Seguin, on land that had been titled by the Alamo defender Thomas R. Miller, and sold in 1840 to Ranger James Campbell in partnership with Arthur Swift and Andrew Neill. This area became part of Seguin within a few years, but 150 years later, the east–west streets still do not match up to cross through the old Guadalupe Street border.

When Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels and his German colonists were making their way in 1845 to the land they had bought to settle, Calvin Turner and Asa Sowell from Seguin were hired to guide them. Later, Seguin became a stopping point and trade center for German immigrants along their route from the ports of Indianola and Galveston to the German settlements around New Braunfels and Fredericksburg. Many Germans en route heard of the hard times in those Hill Country settlements and decided instead to buy land and settle around Seguin.

After Texas became a state, many settlers arrived from the Old South, bringing in hundreds of slaves in total, though only a few plantation owners held more than a dozen slaves. Most of the slaves lived on small farms with their owners, who remained subsistence farmers for years after settling their land. The contributions of African Americans to building the community are all but ignored in local histories written during the period when slavery was still being excused as justifiable due to the alleged low development of those enslaved. In fact, for the first 50 years or so, and probably for the first 100 years of the town, blacks did most of the construction work, including the main concrete buildings such as Sebastopol.

Education was important to the town. By 1849, it chartered a school. The first schoolhouse was built in 1850; it burned and was soon replaced by a two-story limecrete building. This Guadalupe High School, now a part of the St James parochial school, was recognized by a historical marker in 1962 as the oldest continuously used school building in Texas.

Seguin was home to Dr. John E. Park's concrete (limecrete). Called "the Mother of Concrete Cities" in the 1870s, the town once had nearly 100 structures made of limecrete, including the courthouse, schools, churches, houses, cisterns, and many walls. So many limecrete walls and corrals were built that Seguin gave the effect of being a walled city. This was the largest and most significant concentration of 19th-century concrete buildings in the U.S. About 20 of these vintage buildings survive today.

In 1857, Frederick Law Olmsted, later famous as the landscape architect of New York's Central Park, toured Texas, writing dispatches to the New York Times. Olmsted exclaimed at the concrete structures he found here, almost on the edge of the frontier, and described the city as "the prettiest town in Texas."

One surviving concrete home, the Sebastopol House; built in 1856, is a Texas Historical Commission landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places due to its unusual limecrete construction and architectural style.

Stagecoaches began to serve the town in 1848, connecting coastal ports to San Antonio and points west. The Magnolia Hotel was an overnight stop for the exhausted, hungry, and dirt-covered riders. A young slave had the duty of standing on a stone to pull the bell rope alerting the community to the arrival of the stage, which brought visitors, the mail, newspapers, and special merchandise. Heading west from the Magnolia, the stage route went through town, passing the courthouse. Today, a mural commemorates its path. During the Great Depression, workers from the Civilian Conservation Corps traced part of the route with stone walls, showing how it moved downhill, crossed Walnut Branch (a spring-fed tributary of the Guadalupe River), and climbed the other side.

The historic Wilson Pottery site is on Capote Road, near Seguin. The pottery was the first successful business in Texas owned and operated by freed slaves, beginning in 1869.

During Reconstruction, the freed slaves in Seguin organized their own congregation, the Second Baptist Church, and in 1876, a school that came to be known as the Lincoln School. In 1887, they established Guadalupe College, comparable to a junior college today, with a heavy concentration on vocational education. These institutions were begun with the help of Rev. Leonard Ilsley, an abolitionist minister from Maine, but William Baton Ball, himself an ex-slave, Union soldier in the Civil War, and former Buffalo Soldier, became their leader. He was greatly assisted by his friend and benefactor George Brackenridge of San Antonio. (The main buildings of Guadalupe College burned due to a boiler malfunction during a bitterly cold night in 1936, and the college ended.)

The railroad reached Seguin in 1876 en route to San Antonio, when the oldest railway in Texas, the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Railroad, chartered on February 11, 1850, as the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos and Colorado Railway Company built the first Seguin depot. It became part of the Southern Pacific Railroad, and now the main southern line of the Union Pacific.

John Ireland was mayor of Seguin in 1858. Elected the 18th Governor of Texas 1883–1887, he had an important part in the construction of the Texas State Capitol—insisting on using native stone, red granite from the Hill Country, instead of limestone imported from Indiana. He also presided over the opening of the University of Texas at Austin.

From before the Civil War until at least World War II, cotton was the money crop of the local farms, and the county had at least a dozen gins, with three in the town of Seguin, but agriculture was more diversified than in many counties where cotton was king, with corn, peanuts, hogs, and cattle, as well as wheat, oats, sugarcane, and most notably, pecans. The tiny but tasty native nuts were an early export. The crops improved as the bottomlands were converted to orchards, and eventually bigger varieties of nuts were grafted onto the local trees. This was one of the first counties to have a pecan growers' association, and in 1921, its leader, P.K. DeLaney, helped start the Texas Pecan Growers Association. The county remains one of the state's leading producers. Seguin has been called 'a big orchard with a small town in it' because almost every house is shaded by a pecan tree in the yard. A tribute to the nut's importance is "the World's Largest Pecan" erected on the courthouse lawn.

Small mills were put on the Guadalupe River even before the Civil War. William Saffold established a mill at what is today Max Starcke Park. Later, Henry Troell made major improvements there, and in 1894, used hydroelectric power to light the town. The City of Seguin took over the dam and electric plant in 1907. The supply of cheap and reliable electricity helped to make possible several gins, mills, silos, an ice plant and ice cream maker, a cold meat storage facility, and other types of agribusiness.

In 1912, citizens of Seguin lured a struggling church school to the city with cash, and 15 acres of land donated by Louis Fritz. It grew to a junior college and then into a four-year college to become today's Texas Lutheran University, with some 1,400 students and boasting high rankings on the U.S. News & World Report comparisons of universities.

During this time, Texas State Architect, Atlee Ayres designed several commercial, public and residential buildings in Seguin. In 1912 he designed the Starcke Furniture Company, the Seguin High School building aka Mary B. Erskine School (1914), the Aumont Hotel (1916), Langner Hall at Texas Lutheran University and the Blumberg and Breustedt mansions.

During the 1920s, the county began to enjoy a foretaste of an oil boom. While the first fields were at the far edge of the county, near Luling, the paperwork of deeds and leases (as well as any resulting lawsuits) passed through the Guadalupe County Courthouse. Then in December 1929, the Darst Creek Field was opened, only 15 miles east of Seguin. (The creek had been named for colonist and landowner Jacob C. Darst. He was one of the original "Old Eighteen", defenders of the Gonzales cannon and then a member of the Gonzales Ranging Company relief force to the Alamo during the siege in 1836.)

With the Darst Field, Seguin became a supply center, and residents were able to rent out rooms to oil field workers for cash even during the worst years of the depression of the 1930s. As a result, Seguin was able to collect taxes when other towns just had to give up. It used the money to match federal grants for what some derided as "make-work" projects. Under the leadership of the popular mayor, Max Starcke, Seguin was transformed, with a new post office, a new Art Deco City Hall, courthouse, jailhouse and fountain in Central Park, new storm sewers and sidewalks, and a small park along Walnut Branch, with rustic stone walls that protected the historic springs and traced the route of the stagecoach as it headed west through town. The little city had three swimming pools, one for whites, one for blacks at the segregated high school, and one for Spanish-speaking citizens at the Juan Seguin school.

Max Starcke's biggest achievement was a large park along the Guadalupe River, designed by Robert H.H. Hugman, famous now as "the Father of the River Walk" in San Antonio. The park featured a handsome Art Deco recreation building designed by Hugman (now offices) with changing rooms for the swimming pool. The nine-hole course was designed by John Bredemus, a prolific course designer who has been called "the father of Texas golf". The park offered picnic tables and bar-be-que pits between a scenic river drive and the river. Most of all, at a disused mill, Hugman and the young men of the National Youth Administration put a curving dam. As the 1938 dedication marker tells, funds were raised in part by public subscription. Dozens of groups and individuals made contributions to build the park that the town named for its popular mayor, who was moving on to, and soon to head, the Lower Colorado River Authority in Austin.

After World War II, entrepreneurs fresh out of the university used electric furnaces to melt scrap into reinforcing bars with a company then called Structural Metals. The minimill (now CMC Steel) has been joined by manufacturers including Alamo Group, building roadside mowing equipment; Continental Automotive Systems (was Motorola), making electronic powertrain control modules and emissions sensors; Hexcel, producing reinforcements for composites using glass fiber, carbon fiber, aramids, and specialty yarns; Minigrip, manufacturing re-closeable plastic bags for food and home storage; Tyson Foods, processing chicken. In 2009 Caterpillar opened a plant assembling diesel engines. Most recently Rave Gears, a make of precisions gears, opened a plant and headquarters.

The U.S. Air Force's 12th Flying Training Wing operates an airfield for practice approaches and touch-and-go landings, known as Randolph AFB Auxiliary Field/Seguin Field. It was originally constructed with three runways about 12 miles east-northeast of Randolph AFB, in 1941. Today it has a single active 8350-ft runway. Normally unattended, it is supported by a manned runway supervisor unit and aircraft rescue and fire fighting vehicles when conducting flight operations.

The main offices of the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority are located on East Court St. in Seguin. The GBRA manages Canyon Dam, upstream on the Guadalupe, as well as four small dams in the county and other facilities.

The Schertz-Seguin Local Government Corporation, half owned by each city, was created in 1998 to develop and operate a wholesale water supply system. Using wells in the Carrizo Aquifer in Gonzales County, production began in September 2002. It now also supplies Selma, Universal City, and Converse, as well as Springs Hill Water Supply Corp., and the San Antonio Water System. Its offices are in Starcke Park, near the Seguin waterworks.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice operates a parole office in Seguin.

The United States Postal Service operates the Seguin Post Office at 531 West Court St. and the Seguin Annex at 1500 East Court, in the mall next to Bealls.

The city is served by the Seguin Independent School District, with about 8,000 students in 14 schools. Under the 2013 accountability ratings released by the Texas Education Agency, Seguin ISD and each of its campuses received "Met Standard" ratings based upon the new performance standards. The performance index-based rating system applies one of two labels to districts and public schools across the state: Met Standard or Improvement Required. The public schools include:

  • Joe F. Saegert 6th Grade Center (Saegert 6th Grade Center received the Distinction Designation for Academic Achievement in Reading, as did Koennecke Elementary School)
  • A.J. Briesmeister Middle School
  • Jim Barnes Middle School
  • Seguin High School
  • Lizzie M. Burges Alternate School
  • Mercer-Blumberg Learning Center

On May 4, 2019, Seguin ISD voters approved a $64.7 million bond package with 1,569 (66.23%) votes for and 799 (33.73%) against. Bond 2019 was passed by voters and passed renovations for AJ Briesemeister Middle School, Matador Stadium rebuild, Jefferson Elementary, play areas and shade canopies for all Seguin ISD elementary schools, Land purchase to replace McQueeney Elementary, and various campus improvements.

Navarro Independent School District Serves students in northern Seguin and rural areas beyond.

  • St. James Catholic School A Historical Marker notes original concrete portion from 1854 makes this the oldest continuously occupied school building in Texas.
  • First Baptist Christian Academy
  • Emanuel's Lutheran Day School, for students 18 months through four years

Texas Lutheran University, with about 1,400 students, is located in Seguin and affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It has a diverse student body, with 27% Hispanic, 10% African-American, and only 20% describing themselves as Lutheran. Texas Lutheran recently joined the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, NCAA Division III, so its teams play Austin College, Colorado College, Centenary College in Shreveport, Schreiner University, Southwestern University, Trinity University, and the University of Dallas.

Central Texas Technology Center, one of the Alamo Colleges, is located north of Seguin. It offers specialized education and workforce skill development to meet the needs of existing and prospective employers. Seguin's Economic Development Corp. also funds its Manufacturing Technology Academy, which offers dual credit courses and internships for high-school juniors and seniors.

The city operates the Seguin Public Library free of charge for residents of Seguin and Guadalupe County at 313 W Nolte St. The Blumberg Library at TLU is also open to for use by adults who pay an annual membership.

This company is able to offer these different services because they have many qualified and experienced employees. Most of the employees are unionized, which is one of the main reasons that this company is able to offer some of these paving services at an affordable price. They are also able to offer these services because most of their labor is unionized, this is why you will notice that their employees talk to you as one of the family and not just as another worker.

If you need some commercial paving services, then you can expect to have the work done quickly and efficiently. One of the major reasons that this company can provide you with great commercial paving services is because they are fully stocked with the tools and materials needed to complete your project. By having a full stock of all of the materials that you need to get the job done, you will be able to save a lot of money and time. Because the majority of the paving job requires a concrete base, this is another reason why the commercial paving company is able to keep prices low because they are able to buy these materials in large quantities. They are also able to pass these savings on to you by charging you a low price for the job.

Another reason why you should use a reputable paving company is because they specialize in all types of jobs. For example, if you are paving a parking lot, then you might want to use a paving contractor that specializes in asphalt surfaces. Parking lots are usually the most popular type of pavement job that you will find that a paving company takes on. There are a number of different things that you will need to consider when choosing a paving company to take on this job for you, but the most important consideration will be the quality of the job that you will get.

If you want to choose the best paving contractor possible for your paving needs, then you will need to make sure that you spend some time checking out different companies that offer this service. Some of the things that you will want to look for include the experience of the paving contractor. A good way to determine whether or not this is the case is to ask for references from previous clients. If you find a paving contractor that has a lot of good references, then you will want to consider hiring that contractor for your commercial paving needs. It is always best to choose a good contractor who has a lot of positive references rather than one that has a lot of poor references.

Another thing to consider is the level of skill and knowledge that a paving company has when it comes to working on an asphalt surface. You should check out the paving contractor's portfolio to see if they know what they are doing when it comes to working on asphalt surfaces. Some of the best companies in the business have been doing paving work for a long time and they have a lot of experience. It is important to know that the job that you are going to be getting done will be done right the first time around. If you have any doubts about the ability of a paving company to handle a certain type of asphalt surface, then you will want to choose another company to do your asphalt surface paving.

The last thing that you will want to consider before choosing a paving company is their longevity. It is important to choose a paving company that can stay in business for at least three generations. If you are trying to save a few bucks, you will want to look for a paving company that does not have a lot of experience. The good news is that there are many paving companies that are willing to stay in business for more than three generations. If you are trying to cut costs, however, you will want to choose a paving company that is experienced and one that offers good customer service. If a paving company cannot make an accurate estimate or provide specific information about the cost of your project within three days, then you may want to hire a different company.

If you are trying to find a paving company that can get the job done within three generations, you will need to ask them about their track record. The last thing that you want to do is hire a commercial paving contractor that is not very experienced. A good commercial paving contractor will help you to create the best-looking commercial driveway that you can possibly imagine. They will also make sure that the driveway is not only well marked but that it is properly laid and organized as well. The last thing that you want to do is hire a paving company that makes a mistake during the installation of the asphalt paving contractor.

Asphalt paving is an easy task to complete but it does require a lot of expertise. Before you hire any company, it will be important to ask them about the amount of experience that they have with asphalt paving. Any paving company should be able to provide you with a list of references that they have supplied to previous customers. You can also request to see a proof of insurance or a business license if you feel that the company does not have the proper licensing to carry out the kind of work that they are doing.

 Asphalt Paving in Seguin, Texas

Asphalt paving is one of the most commonly used forms of construction today. This is due to its high adaptability and low cost. In addition, it is also considered to be a very practical option when it comes to home paving. However, it does have certain shortcomings that need to be taken note of. Read on to know about some of these and consider whether you should opt for asphalt or not.

One of the disadvantages of using an asphalt driveway is that it can be quite slippery. You need to make sure, therefore, that you drive your car carefully on it. And even if you do so, there is still a chance of your vehicle getting stuck on the asphalt. So, you should keep a good grip on the steering wheel and use all the available help you can. This is especially important if you are making a long-distance drive.

There is also a possibility that asphalt might damage the surface underneath if it is not properly sealed. This is because asphalt is a petroleum product and petroleum products can cause damage to the environment. Therefore, you should make sure that the paved area is adequately sealed to make sure that it does not erode.

It is also important to remember that asphalt can crack when it gets too wet. If this happens, you will need to replace the area with new asphalt so that it does not get cracked again in future. Otherwise, you may end up spending more on repairing cracks that you have caused. In fact, asphalt cracks can be a real headache especially during heavy rains when the paver becomes very susceptible to water penetration.

Apart from this, asphalt is also susceptible to cracking when it is exposed to heat. This is especially true during summer months when the temperature is high. During this period, it is possible for the asphalt to get very soft and mushy. When this happens, it is much harder to seal the surface properly and repair any cracks that have developed.

Another problem that can occur with an asphalt paver is when it is being used improperly. For instance, when the asphalt paver is being used to pave driveways, it can easily grind over the edges of the driveway. The grout lines might also get damaged during this process. In fact, there are some homeowners who prefer using concrete or paved paths in front of their homes and driveways. However, they often forget that they should also seal these paths. Sealing the pathways will help to keep them protected from debris, grit, water and sand.

Homeowners should therefore find a qualified company to clean up their asphalt paver once in a while. These professionals will use a pressure washer to remove all the dirt and debris that have built up on the paver. They will then use a power washer to completely clean the water surface. After this is done, you can simply have the surfaces sealed and maintained by your local company.

By hiring a company to perform regular maintenance on your asphalt paver, you will be able to prevent some very common problems. For instance, if you find that the pavers have cracks, you can ask your local maintenance company to repair these cracks before they become larger. You can also ask them to apply new asphalt once a year. If you forget to do this, the asphalt will eventually wear out and begin to crack again. By properly maintaining your asphalt paver, you will be able to save yourself money in the long run because you will not have to call maintenance on a regular basis.

 Chip Sealing in Seguin, Texas

Chip Sealing Service

The first step in getting a Chip Sealing Service is to prepare the surface. Once the surface is prepared, it should be protected from traffic and other damage from all directions. A trained professional should also remove loose gravel before starting the sealing process, as these can damage the new surface. If you choose to have the sealers do the chip sealing process, be sure to hire a company that has experience and expertise in this area. The results will be worth the expense, and your car will look great for many years to come.

Chip seal

A chip sealing service can help you make your pavement look like new again. Chip seals are made from a combination of small stones and a specialized emulsion. When you use chip seals, they must be applied before the binder sets. Brooming too soon can ruin the new surface. Experts at GPM know the best practices to apply chip seals and can help you choose the right type of emulsion for your needs.

Slurry seal

Slurry seal is a type of concrete application on roads. It is usually applied after chip seal has been installed on the road. A distributor truck applies a mixture of asphalt, aggregate, and filler on the surface of the road. A roller then embeds the chips in the pavement. Five days after applying chip seal, the street is swept to remove loose chips. Five days later, a slurry seal application is completed. The mixture is squeegeed by hand to achieve uniformity. In 1999, a typical slurry seal installation cost was $1.20/square yard. The lifespan of a chip seal treatment is four to six years.

Fog seal

To extend the life of fog seals, chip sealing service providers apply emulsified asphalt to roadways. Emulsifiers allow asphalt to remain in a liquid state and prevent excessive heating. This method is especially effective on larger roadway projects. However, the process has disadvantages, including the need for heavy equipment. Here are a few advantages of fog seals. Read on to learn more. This method is a great complement to chip sealing.

Slurry seal vs chip seal

Slurry seals are a good, economical alternative to chip-sealed roads. They can last longer than chip-sealed pavements and don't contain loose aggregate. Slurry seals can withstand turning traffic as well as straight-line traffic, but the difference between these two types of pavements lies in their application. Chip-sealed roads have a more uniform, smooth surface than slurry-sealed roads. Type I slurry contains about an eighth of an inch of aggregate and is typically used in low-wear areas where maximum crack penetration is needed.

Cost of chip seal

While asphalt repaving is a popular option for driveways, the price of chip seal is much less than for asphalt. This is because chip seal requires less material and is cheaper per square yard. However, the price varies considerably from driveway to driveway. Chip seal requires some setup costs, which are proportionate to the size of the job. However, because long, straight sections require less handwork, chip seal costs are much lower.

Maintenance of chip seal

Chip seal is a protective wearing surface that can be applied to new pavements. It can also be applied to aging pavements with surface distress. The chip sealing process slows the aging process of paved roads and reduces the need for frequent resurfacing. Although chip seals are relatively inexpensive, they can pose a few inconveniences to motorists. These may include dust, loose gravel, and one-way traffic. Travelers should also slow down while driving until the loose gravel is completely removed.

 Parking Lot Paving in Seguin, Texas

Whether you're building a new parking lot or upgrading the one you already have, you should be aware of the process involved. From the initial site work to the final coating, it's important to take the right steps.

How to Properly Prepare Your Parking Lot for Paving

First, you'll want to choose a contractor with the expertise and experience to get the job done right. Your contractor should also be willing to provide a full estimate of materials and labor, and the cost will vary depending on the size and complexity of your project.

Next, you'll want to decide on the type of asphalt you'll use. Traditionally, asphalt paving has been done using base asphalt mixtures over an aggregate layer. This is the most common method. The advantages of this approach include the ability to keep the parking lot at a constant elevation, which eliminates the need for underdrains.

You'll also need to decide on how you'll handle water management. The amount of water your pavement can handle is a key factor in its longevity. If you're unable to control how much moisture a surface can absorb, it can cause damage.

In addition, you'll need to make sure your sub-base is adequately prepared for a new asphalt surface. Most subgrade soils contain silt and clay. This can cause moisture to penetrate the sub-base and undermine the structural strength of the pavement.

You'll also want to consider the appropriate thickness of your asphalt paving. The thickness of your base course and surface course will depend on how much traffic your parking lot gets.

If you're looking to replace the pavement on your parking lot or highway, you'll want to know how much asphalt resurfacing and overlay services will cost. The cost will depend on a few different factors, including the square footage of the road, depth of repairs, and additional materials. To get a fair estimate, ask the contractors for an estimate for the labor required to resurface or overlay your road.


The preparation for asphalt resurfacing and overlay services begins with the removal of failed sections of the roadway. These sections are removed and replaced with a new section, either an asphalt overlay or a slurry resurfacing project. Inspectors determine which areas need resurfacing or replacement and may need surface treatment or a modified seal. This process should be performed systematically. The resulting resurfaced section will be up to one and a half inches higher than the existing concrete.


Using asphalt resurfacing and overlay services is an affordable and effective way to fix the problems on your pavement. Overlays can repair small cracks in your pavement, as well as fix larger ones.

 Asphalt Repair and Maintenance in Seguin, Texas

Whether you have asphalt and concrete pavement repair needs, there are several things you should consider before making the investment. The process can be very complicated and expensive, if not performed correctly. It is essential to choose the right contractor for your asphalt repair needs.

The first thing to consider is whether or not your asphalt repair is commercial grade. Some asphalt repair businesses are only equipped to handle residential asphalt repairs. This may result in a higher price for your repair project.

Next, you should check out any credentials of the potential contractor. A legitimate asphalt repair company will be required to obtain a business license from the local government. They will also need to pass a background and fire hazard inspection. All employees should be properly trained and insured. These factors alone should give you enough information to determine if the asphalt repair company you are considering has the ability to complete your repair request.

Another important factor to consider when choosing an asphalt repair company is their price. Not all companies are created equal. You may be eligible for discounts and incentives. Before making final decisions on which asphalt repair company you want to hire, ask for cost estimates. If a price is quoted without the customer's permission, you should question why they are quoting that amount. Sometimes companies give quotes without customers' permission in order to get paid quickly for the job.

If you are in the market for asphalt repairs, you may be wondering what type of maintenance you will need to do once the job is complete. Most asphalt repair jobs are fairly simple. Repairs such as potholes should be tackled using asphalt patching materials. For larger defects, such as cracks, water damage, and other issues, it is common for the asphalt repair company to use some type of filler material to repair the problem area. This process can take several days to a week, depending on the severity of the issue.

In most cases, repairing asphalt damages is not only faster than removing them, but also less expensive. The reason for this is because asphalt repairs can be completed with the least amount of materials, as compared to other types of repairs. When it comes to other types of repair, such as for potholes and cracks, it is common to have to remove and replace damaged asphalt, as well as apply additional materials. Not only does this cost more, but also it is possible for problems to become worse before they get better.

In many cases, you may be able to get a refund or credit card offer for the cost of the repair, especially if you were not able to complete the repair on your own. With an asphalt repair company, there is a good chance that you will be able to recoup at least a portion of your investment. This is because most asphalt repair companies charge their clients based on the amount of damage. In the case of damages that are severe enough to require replacement, a company may offer their clients to either pay for the cost of having the asphalt replaced or to have the asphalt repaired so that it can be used again. However, some companies offer their customers the choice of having the damaged asphalt repaired for free, depending on the circumstances.

If you are dealing with asphalt repairs, but the damage is minor, you should be able to fix the problem yourself. There are a number of ways to fix small damage such as potholes and cracks, using sandpaper to smooth out the surface, and filling them with a filler such as dry compound. If the damage is more severe, you may need the help of a professional company. In this case, you should consult with your insurance provider to find out whether or not you can get any financial assistance towards the repair.
