Sealcoating your asphalt parking lot is the best way to protect it. The weather is the biggest enemy of asphalt. It will help protect it from moisture and surface water penetration. It will also protect it from oxidation caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays. It will also help protect against winter’s freeze/thaw cycles. In addition to this, sealcoating helps protect against oil, gas, and chemical spills.
Sealcoating brings back that “new” look. Asphalt, when new, is black. Mother Nature will take her toll on asphalt with rain, snow, ice, and the sun, which will turn it an old gray color. After sealcoating, the old gray look turns into a new clean black look.
Sealcoating Saves Money
This is absolutely the best way to save money on your parking lot. A regular maintenance program includes sealcoating and crack sealing every two to three years, depending on traffic and weather. This will more than double the service life of asphalt pavement.
