Seal coating asphalt protects it from the harmful effects of the weather as well as petroleum based products like gasoline and oil.
Sealcoating your parking lot is an easy way to extend the life of your asphalt and improve the curb appeal of your property – saving you money in the long run.
Seal Coating Asphalt Helps:
• Minimize Maintenance
• Keep Parking Lot Safe
A properly installed, high-quality sealcoating product will protect your parking lots’ asphalt from fuel, oil, weather and traffic wear. If asphalt is not property seal coated or, not sealed at all, cracks can start forming in the asphalt, which can then lead to potholes.
A crack sealer should be applied to cracks before sealcoating to prevent them from growing and further damaging your asphalt parking lot. Asphalt parking lots and driveways should be seal coated every 2-3 years. Cracks should be filled and repaired every year.
Sealcoating a commercial parking lot should be done by paving and sealcoating professionals. For those that would like more information on the process, it can be summed up in these steps:
1. Large cracks larger than 1/4 inch wide should be patched
2. Be sure it is above 50 degrees Fahrenheit and rain isn’t expected for a day or two
3. Clean the area to be sealed with a push broom and then spray dust away with water
4. Clean oil spots with a commercial detergent and then spray clean with water
5. Let the asphalt dry for an hour before sealcoating
6. Mix sealcoating thoroughly
7. Pour and spread the sealant a 20 square foot section at a time with overlapping strokes. Be sure to spread a thin coat so it dries effectively
8. Stay off the parking lot for 24-48 hours.
Be sure to work with a paving company that utilizes the industry’s highest standards of equipment and materials on every job, while adhering to proper safety standards for your sealcoating project.
Sealcoating Just Makes Cents!!!
Here are some of the benefits of sealcoating:
• Stops Weather Damage
Asphalt sealcoating prevents the damaging effects of oxidation and water penetration.
• Prevents Oxidation
The sun’s ultraviolet rays harden and dry out the asphalt pavement surface.
• Beautifies Pavement
Asphalt sealcoating restores original black color to asphalt and greatly enhances the overall appearance of property.
• Resists Gas, Oil, and Salt
Ashpalt sealcoating resists the highly damaging effects of gas and oil seepage and all other road chemicals including alkalis and winter salt.
