East End Asphalt is the only private company that makes its own asphalt in Bermuda, allowing us to employ more people and deliver a locally-produced product. By sourcing all of our construction aggregate overseas, we provide the highest quality product possible to our customers.
Our sealcoat consists of either coal tar pitch (derived from coke, a by-product of the steel production process) or asphalt cement mixed with inert fillers, water, emulsifying agents and additives. Applied in thin coats, this surface treatment is used to protect off-highway asphalt pavement surfaces such as parking lots, driveways, runways, service stations and heliports.
In addition to asphalt, we also work with:
We offer a fixed price quote, which means that we'll always honour our quoted price. The only exception to that will be if you ask for additional asphalt to be manufactured or labour performed. Please call us to learn more about our asphalt and sealcoat manufacturing process.
Asphalt can become damaged and require resurfacing in order to maintain its function and appearance. Damage is typically in the form of cracking which is caused by both the freeze/thaw cycle and the effects of the sun and moisture. The sun oxidizes asphalt cement, causing shrinkage and creating separations that lead to cracks. Moisture then reaches the pavement’s subsurface and softens it. Surface traffic will then deteriorate the pavement around the crack, creating a larger problem…the pothole.
There are many benefits of asphalt resurfacing:
Why Seal Asphalt Cracks?
Proper attention to cracks will prevent problems from spreading and extend the life of the pavement. Treating the problem while it is still small will prevent costly resurfacing later on.
Existing cracks are cleaned by compressed air. Cracks may also be routed to create a reservoir for additional material. This allows for greater expansion and contraction of the pavement without cracking. A hot liquid asphalt cracksealing material is then applied to the cracks, after which a squeegee is used to “band” the crack and blend the material with the existing pavement.
Caring For New Sealcoat
Once the decision has been made and the sealcoat has been applied, traffic should be kept off of the area for at least 24 hours. When parking lots must be open for customer parking, the contractor can arrange to sealcoat the lot in sections. Failure to keep cars off of the sealcoat before it dries and cures will result in tracking throughout the lot and onto the sidewalks and halls of adjacent properties.

East End Asphalt (EEA) provides construction aggregate of several different grades to consumers and businesses on a supply basis. Made from coarsely ground particulate material such as crushed stone, sand and recycled concrete, aggregates are ideal as a low-cost foundation filler when bound with asphalt or cement.
Because they're mostly made from recycled or naturally occurring materials, aggregates are ideal from both an economic and environmental perspective. When used properly, they reinforce the strength of traditional composite materials.
We're Bermuda's exclusive importer of aggregate from the Martin Marietta Auld's Cove in Nova Scotia, guaranteeing a high grade every time.
Find out more about our different aggregate grades by contacting us today. Our additional services include asphalt manufacture and resurfacing, paving, tennis courts, parking lots and marking.
