Sealcoating Basics for Your Parking Lot
Keep your parking lot beautiful and well maintained with a professional sealcoating. Don’t let a minor crack or worn coating create costly damage to your professional parking lot. Learn more about this essential maintenance step and find out how you can receive quality sealcoating near you.
What Is Sealcoating?
Asphalt parking lots fade over time. Whether you have a shaded lot or your asphalt is exposed to direct sunlight for most of the day, the surface will slowly oxidize, or fade, and begin to wear away. Oxidation is not only an aesthetic issue but is also a sign that the protective coating is wearing away from your parking lot.
A professional asphalt contractor will spread a thin layer of asphalt cement or coal tar pitch to protect your parking lot from the worst effects of UV rays, water, oil, salt, and gasoline. A properly applied sealcoat will last for two or three years. If you haven’t received a professional sealcoat in three years or more, it’s time to have your parking lot inspected and a service scheduled.
When Is Sealcoating Necessary?
Without sealcoating, your parking lot will experience a number of negative effects. First, oxidation will cause your beautiful blacktop to look dull and gray. Over time, water will penetrate the surface and create cracks and potholes. When these potholes reach the foundation, the repair process can be extremely costly. Sealcoating is an excellent investment that will prevent major expenses and downtime as your parking lot is repaired.
