Sealcoating Increases Life Pavement
Sealcoating can address existing pavement damage while protecting asphalt from future damage caused by:
- Oxidation: Oxygen bonds to asphalt molecules as soon as the pavement is laid. Over time, this process of oxidation will cause pavement to become brittle, stiff, and fatigued. While that alone may cause slight cracking, oxidation also makes pavement more vulnerable to damage from the elements, traffic, and more. A black-grey hue or lighter shade of black is a red flag of asphalt oxidation.
- The elements: Freezing temperatures, snow, and sun exposure can all take a toll on pavement. So can deicer salts, as well as water penetrating even small cracks in asphalt.
- Standard wear and tear: Traffic from people, cars, and trucks can also play a role in damaging parking lots and paved areas. And that’s not all. The chemicals and water that may be left behind by vehicles can do additional damage to pavement.
Depending on the condition of commercial pavement:
- Sealcoating can be used to seal small cracks and prevent water intrusion. It can also prevent cracks and other damage that can result from freeze-thaw cycles.
- Hot crack sealing and/or asphalt repair may be needed before sealcoating to address deeper cracks when more damage exists. Once existing damage has been addressed, sealcoating can be applied, providing a protective coating for paved areas.
With routine sealcoating as part of a parking lot maintenance plan, it’s possible to double the life span of your asphalt and pavement. That can mean putting off costly repairs and/or replacement for years or longer!
Benefits of Sealcoating
Some of the many benefits of sealcoating include (and are not limited to):
- Lots that look like new: Fresh sealcoating can refresh the look of pavement, renewing its appearance while revitalizing its ability to withstand the elements and traffic. That can beautify properties while preserving or possibly adding to their values.
- Protection from various damage: From oxidation to weather, vehicles, chemicals, and more, sealcoating can keep the damaging elements at bay, protecting pavement and making it more resilient.
- Easier maintenance: By sealing small cracks and creating smoother surfaces, sealcoats can make it easier to remove snow, sweep, pressure wash and maintain parking lot marking and striping. That makes for a safer, more attractive paved area. It can also minimize expensive repairs, accidents, and other problems.
- Savings: Sealcoating is far more cost-effective than replacing asphalt or making major asphalt repairs. That can result in huge savings, as well as less downtime for commercial paved areas.
