Four Benefits Of Asphalt Sealcoating

Posted on

When you install an asphalt parking lot to your business, there are ways you can extend the life of the parking area and make it look better than ever before. With the addition of sealcoating, you are providing a lot of benefits for your parking lot and getting the most for your money. Here are a few benefits of asphalt sealcoating.

Protected From Gasoline

Oil and gasoline are two destructive substances for any asphalt or concrete surface, but with sealcoating you do not have to worry about the potential damage done to your property. When oil or gas hits an uncoated surface, it can cause the asphalt to soften and deteriorate at a much faster rate. Protecting your asphalt with sealcoating will allow the liquid leaks from vehicles to simply roll instead of absorbing into the ground. When you opt for sealcoating, you are also protecting your customers or visitors because they are more likely to slip as leaks can create a slippery surface. 

Clean With Ease

When you apply sealcoating to your asphalt surface, you are making your life easier when it comes time to clean the surface. After rain storms, snow storms, or even fall clean up you can use an air blower, broom, or pressure washer to easily clean the parking lot. When the dirt and debris sticks to an uncoated surface, it is more of a challenge to clean up the area to make it look nice and well taken care of. Asphalt sealcoating is a great way to seal the ground from debris build up and makes cleaning a breeze.

Asphalt Lasts Longer

Uncoated asphalt surfaces deteriorate and wear down after just a couple of years. When you use asphalt sealcoating, you are sure to extend the life of your parking lot or area, which in the long run will save you a lot of money. If you have your asphalt sealcoating redone every 4-5 years, you will notice a big improvement in the functionality of the surface as well as more money in your bank account. 

Aesthetically Pleasing

A fresh asphalt surface is a beautiful black color, but as many people know, the color tends to fade relatively quickly by the direct exposure to UV rays all day long. Asphalt sealcoating can extend the life of your surface, but also keep it looking beautiful for a longer time. The sealcoating also protects the surface from extended damage such as cracking from the direct exposure to sunlight.
