7 Things to Know About Sealcoating Your Parking Lot

February 14, 2019

The winter months can be especially harsh on your exterior property. It’s not uncommon to discover potholes, cracks and general wear and tear within your parking lot once the snow has cleared. Below are 7 things to know when repairing asphalt.

  1. Sealcoating is an important element in any preventative maintenance effort as it protects your surfaces from oxidation and moisture.
  2. When applied in thin layers, the material protects the pavement against common snow, salt, oils, heat, and water. The image below is an example of what our crew can do after the winter weather. The top part of the parking lot has been sealcoated, while the bottom has not been sealcoated yet.

  3. Sealer acts as a waterproofing material, making parking lots more resistant to moisture that results in cracked surfaces and potholes.
  4. Store fronts, restaurants and high traffic buildings often find sealcoating beneficial as it protects the asphalt from high volume water pressure, oil and gas spills. 
  5. The dark black sealant is an aesthetic element making the pavement look brand new, while also evening out the surface and making them easier to clean.
  6. The finished product increases parking lot longevity which promotes an inviting atmosphere, welcoming guests and customers to a desirable location.
  7. The spring and summer months are the best time to complete sealcoating with the intent of allowing the material to dry for a more long-lasting effect.
