All asphalt deteriorates from exposure to air, sun, rain, freezing weather and snow; from wear of traffic and hardening of the asphalt services. If not maintained, cracks and breaks allow moisture to seep in, the gravel base becomes soft, potholes appear and expensive replacement is necessary.
The secret to maintaining asphalt is to keep it alive. Hairline cracks indicate the pavement is “thirsty” for a refreshing drink of asphalt paving seal immediately.
Benefits of Quality Sealcoating:
A black parking lot has a clean, rich look that presents a positive image of the company, retail facility, or residential complex. You never get a second chance to make a first impression and your parking area is your visitors first experience!
Sealcoating fills surface voids, reducing exposure to oxygen and water and prolonging pavement life.
Resists Gas & Oil Spills
By filling surface voids, sealing also reduces the depth to which oil or gas can penetrate the pavement.
Resists Ultraviolet Rays
Although the sealcoat does not repair any damage that has already occurred to the asphalt, it does prevent ultraviolet rays from further damaging the asphalt pavement.
Easier to Clean & Maintain
Quality Sealcoats fill surface voids while coating the pavement surface. The resulting smooth and even texture makes surfaces easier to maintain year-round.
Cost Effective in the Long Run
It's less expensive to sealcoat a parking lot every few years using a coal tar emulsion than it is to overlay or replace a new lot. Quality Sealcoating preserves asphalt for pennies per square foot.
