Why You Should Sealcoat Your Parking Lot

Posted on July 2019 by ACI Asphalt & Concrete

Why Sealcoat?

Sealcoating is one of the most important elements of a comprehensive pavement management plan. Properly applied sealcoat protects asphalt surfaces against gasoline, oil, salt, water and ultraviolet rays, which causes the asphalt to breakdown, causing discoloration, cracks, voids and potholes.

Asphalt is preferred for parking lots because it provides excellent waterproofing, flexibility, and adhesive properties at and affordable cost. In spite of asphalts benefits, there are serious considerations related to chemical corrosion, heat, and ultraviolet rays.

Crack Sealing is a crucial preventative measure to keeping moisture out from under the pavement, preventing potholes from forming and extending the life of your asphalt.

These elements lead to asphalt breaking down, causing discoloration, cracks, voids, and potholes. Applying a protective sealcoat resists natural and man-made elements and maintains the parking lots aesthetic appeal.A parking lot should be re-sealcoated every three years. Remember to address American with Disabilities Act regulations when changing the parking lots surface and striping. ACI will assist you in meeting these requirements.

 

The Benefits of Sealcoating and Crack Sealing

Beautification: Sealcoating makes the pavement look new, projecting a positive image for your company or investment property.

Resist Oil & Gas Spills: Gasoline and oil break down unsealed asphalt. Sealcoating reduces gas and oil penetration into the asphalt.

Slows Oxidation and Water Penetration: Sealcoating fills surface voids, reducing exposure to oxygen, moisture, and UV rays.

Easier to Clean and Maintain: Sealcoating provides a smooth, even texture making the surface easier to maintain.

Increases Pavement Flexibility: Sealcoating applies a dark black coat to the pavement, drawing more heat from the sun. It becomes more pliable, helping the parking lot hold up to traffic and resist cracking.

Cost Effective: The price of a new asphalt will always be affected by the price of crude oil, which is at an all-time high. Alternatively, the cost of sealcoating is a fraction of asphalt overlay. Sealcoating extents the life of existing asphalt for pennies per square foot.
