Everything Property Owners Need to Know About Asphalt Sealcoating
What is asphalt sealcoating?
Asphalt pavement sealants are made of petroleum based materials like asphalt binders, polymer additives for properties like UV resistance and flexibility, and fine aggregates such as sand for traction. Asphalt sealants are applied hot to better bond with the surface beneath, and then allowed to cure until hardened.
Our Proven Parking Lot Sealcoating Process
- We thoroughly clean the pavement surface and treat oil spots with primers.
- Cracks are filled to prevent them from worsening or reflecting through the sealcoating.
- We use specialized equipment to apply a quality sealant, sometimes more than one coat.
- After curing, we restripe the parking lot with durable traffic paint.
Parking Lot Sealcoating FAQs
How do I know my lot needs a sealcoating?
It’s time for a sealant when your asphalt surface is dry, brittle, or gray, but the pavement is still stable. Paving professionals also recommend getting your asphalt coated every two to three years to prevent cracking.
What should I do before sealcoating?
The asphalt surface needs to be free of debris, cracks should be filled, and oil spots treated. Your trusted paving contractors can do this, but it’s a good idea for property owners to at least remove larger debris like tree limbs.
When can I get my parking lot sealed?
For the sealant to cure properly, the temperature needs to be over 50 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 24 hours before application, and there shouldn’t be any rain for at least a day afterwards.
How long before I can use my parking lot after sealcoating?
Sealcoating is cured 24 hours after the final coat.
