Parking Lot Sealcoating

asphalt sealcoating

Why you should sealcoat your parking lot

Your parking lot is constantly being exposed to oxidizing elements such as gasoline, oil, salt, water, and UV rays. Sealcoating protects your parking lot against these elements, making it an essential process for maintaining your pavement surface.

Sealcoating is the application of coal tar pitch or asphalt emulsion sealer, which penetrates the surface and forms a protective barrier with your asphalt. By filling surface voids, asphalt sealcoating reduces the depth to which oil or water can penetrate the pavement, therefore limiting the damage. The black finish that sealcoating adds to pavement not only improves the surface’s appearance, but also makes the surface more pliable, making it more resistant to traffic without cracking.

By applying high-quality sealcoating on a regular basis, we ensure that your investment in your asphalt surface is protected.

How often sealcoating should be applied

Asphalt sealcoating should be applied 1 year after asphalt installation, and reapplied every 2-3 years thereafter. The wear and tear of your asphalt surface depends on the weather in your area, as well as how often it’s exposed to oxidizing agents such as gasoline and water. Our experts at Southern Asphalt Engineering would be able to evaluate your pavement, and provide a sealcoating estimate based on your lot’s condition.
