Why Should I Sealcoat My Parking Lot
Over the years, your asphalt pavement will develop small cracks due to constant exposure to heavy traffic and the elements such as water, sunlight, and chemical spills. These small cracks allow water to penetrate the base and can weaken the asphalt. This puts your parking lot at risk of irreversible and expensive damage.
Sealcoating your asphalt parking lot protects it from this scenario and extends its lifespan.
Parking lot sealers can seal the cracks in the asphalt preventing water from seeping in and eventually causing bigger damages. It also provides protection against gas and oil spills as well as oxygen and UV rays. Being exposed to these elements on a daily basis, your parking lot can ensure durability when sealcoated.
The dark black color of parking lot sealers can also make your parking lot look brand new and well taken care of. Not only that, but it can also retain more of the sun’s heat and be able to melt snow and ice faster to keep your parking lot safe for everyone.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take to seal my parking lot?
This will depend on the size of your parking lot and the amount of space we can temporarily close without causing too much disruption. But each section can typically be done within 1 day.
When can I use my parking lot?
You should be able to walk on newly sealcoated within 24 hours. You can also allow customers to use the parking lots in 48-72 hours, depending on the temperature and humidity. Our job site foreman will advise you according to your situation.
How often should I have my parking lot sealcoated?
This will depend on the amount of traffic you have on your property on a daily basis. Typically about every 2-3 years you will want to have your parking lot sealcoated.
Do you use coal tar sealers?
No. We only use Asphalt Emulsion Sealers which are more effective in improving asphalt’s durability since it’s made from the same base oil and minerals. It’s also more environment-friendly than coal tar which is always a benefit for everyone.
Do you have a warranty?
We at Erickson Asphalt Services always stand by our work quality. Our unmatched craftsmanship and professionalism have always been our foundation in building our commercial sealcoating company. That said, we proudly offer a 1-year warranty on our parking lot sealcoating service against peeling and flaking.
Should I sealcoat my new asphalt parking lot?
While you might want to protect your investment as soon as possible, you must wait for 6-12 months before sealing your newly installed asphalt parking lot. This way, the oils in the asphalt can be washed away and cured using the sun’s heat before applying the parking lot sealer.
Rushing to seal your asphalt pavement can cause the asphalt oil to mix with the sealer and make it crack and flake easily.
