Asphalt Sealcoating Process And Benefits
Asphalt sealcoating is a process that coats and protects asphalt pavements from the elements. It can be applied to new or existing pavement and helps preserve the surface by delaying oxidation and other weathering effects. Asphalt sealcoating also makes roads less slippery in wet conditions, improving safety for drivers. Asphalt sealcoating also protects asphalt from UV rays, lasting longer and maintaining its appearance.
Benefits of Parking Lot Asphalt Maintenance
Protection from UV Rays
Shields asphalt against the drying action of the sun and ultraviolet rays.
Protects against the number one pavement-destroying force: water.
Resists damage caused by gasoline, oil, winter salt and spills.
Seal coat bonds firmly to the surface to provide an even-textured, durable barrier.
Boosts Curb Appeal
Make a great first impression on your customers with sealer that restores a rich, black look to existing asphalt.
Filling surface cracks with a durable flexible material like we use will prevent future costly repairs.
How often should sealant be reapplied?
We recommend you seal your new asphalt paving one year after it was paved. And, then sealing again one year after that.
After these two initial seal coating jobs, we recommend that you then just watch the color of your asphalt pavement. The lighter in color it gets, the more dried out your asphalt is. The more it dries out, the more weak and brittle it becomes. To prevent costly future repairs and damage from occurring on your parking lot, we recommend sealing regularly. Residential sealcoating usually lasts 3-5 years, but parking lots with heavy traffic & many sources of wear and tear will likely need to be sealed more frequently.
We are, however, cautious to make sure to inspect your parking lot first to see if it is ready for a new coat. Sealing too often is like the old saying “too much of a good thing is a bad thing.” Sealing too often can lead to a build up of sealer. Hairline cracks will appear that makes it look like the sealcoat is starting to crack up – but it’s not that the sealer has gone bad, it’s the negative effects of a build-up of sealer.
