Improving the curb appeal of your facility can be accomplished when you sealcoat the parking lot. Attracting and retaining tenants is key to maintaining high occupancy levels. By maintaining the property’s exterior curb appeal, especially the parking lot is paramount. If your lot is clean and well maintained, it indicates a professional outlook for your business dealing and translates into a great first impression.
Picking up the Trash
To keep your parking lot fresh and clean, you’ll need to keep it devoid of trash. Sealcoating and abiding by proper asphalt pavement maintenance procedures to complete asphalt repairs as needed, makes it easier to keep pavement clean. Sweeping machines can more easily pick up debris on a smooth, even surface than on one that is rutted by potholes, cracks and water filled depressions.
Replacing Eroded Surfaces
Overtime, the large aggregate in the asphalt pavement become exposed as the finer material in the pavement is subjected to traffic, water, thermal processes, and the damaging rays of the sun. As aggregate is pulled out of the surface, cracks can form, grown and provide easy access for water to work its way beneath the pavement. Water reaching the subgrade of the pavement causes depressions. More wear and tear on the asphalt causes standing water, potholes and damage to the subgrade. Keeping up with asphalt repairs are important to the overall stability of your parking lots structure. Additionally, sealcoating fills in those fine cracks and coats the large aggregate, binding it together once again. But, that’s not all that asphalt repairs and sealcoating do. They improve the appearance of your facility.
What Sealcoating Doesn’t Do
While sealcoating your parking lot will improve its curb appeal, it won’t:
Improve the asphalt structure – if your parking lot was not constructed to the highest of standards with the proper techniques and materials. Sealcoating it will not hide or remove these imperfections. You can’t just put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig! Defects and depressions that existed before sealcoat was applied, will still be apparent and an issue after sealcoating.
