Sealcoating your asphalt parking lot saves you money and time. Sealcoating is preventative maintenance for your parking lot, similar to how you paint your home to keep the weather from deteriorating the exterior.
Asphalt maintenance will ensure that your asphalt is sealed and the small cracks are repaired, which prevents water from seeping down to the base. The dark black color of newly applied sealcoat improves the appearance of new and old asphalt, making your parking lot look near brand new.
Resealing your asphalt will preserve asphalt surfaces and help hide small cracks, patches and rough spots as well as making traffic lines on parking lots more visible. Sealcoating that is applied correctly makes your asphalt driveway look cleaner because rain washes dirt and debris easily away from the non-porous surface.
Sealcoating Asphalt parking Lot…
Sealing asphalt protects the asphalt from the hot Florida sun and oil and gasoline, both which are all too common on parking lots. Asphalt sealcoating fills surface voids, which reduces exposure to oxygen and UV rays and reduces the depth to which oil or gas can penetrate the asphalt.
Sealcoating acts as a waterproofing agent, minimizing the rate at which water enters the asphalt. Sealcoating asphalt prevents the seepage of water and moisture from rain, which is a common reason your parking lot begins to crack.
Sealcoating provides an attractive black surface that is ideal for painting lines and other markers on parking lots. Sealcoat is a dark, black colored matarial and when applied to asphalt, it helps attract more heat from the sun. The hotter the sealcoating on the asphalt gets, the more pliable it becomes, which helps it to withstand traffic without cracking.
Resealing your asphalt parking lot leaves a smooth, clean surface ideal for sweeping, which lowers cleaning costs and gives your parking lot a fresh and new look, similar to painting your home or business. Sealcoating fills surface voids, which reduces exposure to oxygen and UV rays and reduces the depth to which oil or gas can penetrate the asphalt. It acts as a waterproofing agent, minimizing the rate at which water enters the asphalt of your driveway or parking lot.
Sealcoating costs pennies per square foot compared to the dollars needed to repair or replace damaged asphalt. The intrusion of moisture into asphalt accelerates its deterioration and is strongly related to asphalt distress.
Sealing your asphalt pavement prevents the oxidation and erosion of the top layer and replaces fine particles lost from the asphalt surface due to oxidation on older pavements. It also resists gas, diesel fuel, oil, salt and chemical penetration which will break down the bond between the aggregate and the liquid asphalt.
The price of asphalt will always be affected by crude oil prices, which fluctuate when supplies vary. Sealcoating preserves asphalt for pennies per square foot, verses costly asphalt repairs.
