If the property that you are managing has a parking lot, it is your responsibility to keep it, your property’s first and last impression, looking pristine. When it comes to parking lots, many assume that it will never look as good as when it was freshly paved and the parking lot stall lines have been painted. However, with sealcoating, not only will this brand new look and feel be once again present, it also offers real protection for the longevity of your pavement.
Let’s explore some of the benefits of sealcoating:
- First and foremost, sealcoating aims to stop weather damage. The Florida sun and weather patterns can be brutal on asphalt pavement. The harmful effects that oxidation and water penetration have on your asphalt can be almost diminished by a proper sealcoating job. Battling the sun’s ultraviolet rays, sealcoating assists the asphalt from hardening and drying out the asphalt payment surface leading to cracks and crevices – which can lead to more parking lot woes.
- Keeping that beautiful “just paved” look. Like most new things left out in the sun, parking lots begin deteriorating in a matter of months if proper care is not taken. Luckily with professionally applied sealcoating, the beauty and deep black luster can be preserved for much longer. Sealcoating restores original black color to asphalt and greatly enhances the overall appearance of a property.
- Road chemicals that are introduced to the surface can be detrimental to the life of the asphalt. Chemicals like radiator fluid, windshield wiper fluid, gas and oil have a damaging effect on untreated asphalt. Sealcoating protects the surface of your asphalt by resisting seepage of these foreign substances. Thus, saving money by reducing repairs, such as cracks and potholes, and prolonging the life of your asphalt delaying the need for replacement of your asphalt.
