Parking Lot Sealcoating
A parking lot sealcoating application not only boosts curb appeal by restoring that dark black color to your asphalt, it also serves important functions! Seal coat protects your asphalt from fuel and oil spills, and protects it from damaging UV rays.
What Options Do I Have For Pothole Patching?
Pothole repair and patching is a common asphalt repair job we encounter. Patching can be completed with cold, warm, or hot mix asphalt. Cold mix “throw and go” or “throw and roll” is a good stop-gap patching method during cold weather, but it doesn’t address underlying pavement damage.
A longer-lasting method of pothole repair involves several more steps, including cutting and filling with stone, and compacting. It is considered a permanent fix and utilizes hot liquid asphalt for the pothole repair. In any case, we always use quality materials in your parking lots that will provide firm support for heavy traffic and hold up well to future pavement distresses.
What's the Difference Between Crack Sealing and Crack Filling?
Asphalt is durable, flexible, and can withstand lots of wear and tear and, because of these features, even occasional overloading. However, the shifting of the earth can cause cracks in your asphalt surface. These cracks should be checked for yearly, and sealed or filled to prevent water damage.
Crack sealing is completed with a high quality rubberized material. It fills in the cracks and allows for future flexing, while preventing water and debris infiltration. It is more expensive than crack filling, but well worth the cost as it is a long-lasting repair that prevents future damage.
Crack filling is performed with an asphalt based sealant. Crack filler is used for static cracks that are unlikely to shift. These cracks are filled to prevent water infiltration that could cause deterioration of your parking lot’s foundation.
Benefits of Parking Lot Sealing
Pavement sealing involves laying down a thin layer of high quality sealer that acts as a protective barrier. Asphalt has beneficial oils in it that keep it pliable and strong. If these oils dry out from weathering and exposure to ultraviolet rays, your asphalt pavement can become brittle and prone to crumbling. Regular sealcoating with coal tar or asphalt emulsion sealer protects asphalt and helps reduce long term repair costs.
