Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating
Remember when your parking lot was brand new? It can look like that again! With a fresh sealcoat, the cracks and lines will disappear. Besides its aesthetic improvement, a proper sealcoat is the best barrier between your asphalt and the harsh elements that lead to its deterioration.
A professionally applied sealcoat will restore your asphalt to its original, shiny black finish. Other benefits of a fresh sealcoat include:
- Preserving your investment. Sealcoating doubles the life of your pavement at a fraction of the cost of replacing your asphalt completely. Most sealcoating projects are completed for around 20% of your original investment.
- Protecting the pavement. But a barrier between your parking lot and the damaging effects of harsh weather, chemicals, oils, de-icing salts, etc.
- Enhancing the appearance of your property. Improved appearance is the key to image and success, which in turn translates into improved business.
- Giving more life to your pavement. After sealcoating, cleaning becomes easier. Rain washes and cleans the sealed pavement. Line striping also lasts longer, thus reducing the frequency and the need of additional line striping.
How long after sealcoating can we use the parking lot?
We recommend staying off the driveway for at least 24 hours. This can vary by current weather conditions, so your Sealco Cincy asphalt specialist will give you more specific instructions after your sealcoat has been applied.
How often should we sealcoat our asphalt parking lot? Every year?
Absolutely not. In fact, excessively sealing your pavement will cause sealant build up and other damage. Sealco Cincy recommends applying a fresh sealcoat every 2 to 3 years. This varies based on how harsh Cincinnati’s winter weather is during that time.
How soon can we sealcoat a freshly laid asphalt pavement?
As soon as the surface rids of light oils through oxidation. It usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks, depending on conditions. To ensure that the asphalt surface is ready for sealcoating, spread some water on the surface. If the water spreads evenly without beading, the surface is ready to apply sealcoat.
