With periodic maintenance you can extend the life of your asphalt by up to 30 years! Sealcoating protects against oxidation caused by harsh weather such as extreme heat and heavy rain. When new asphalt is properly sealcoated within the first year, the surface will experience much less degradation from water, traffic, and UV damage from the sun. Sealcoating also offers a "Like New" appearance, boosting the outside aesthetics of your business, which in turn, brings in new customers to you.
Most projects require two coats, which requires 24-48 hours of curing before vehicles are allowed back onto the surface. Within 2 days time, your parking lot will be completely transformed.
Proper timing of seal coating will allow you to extend the life of your asphalt by 300%! By sealcoating within the first 12-18 months after the asphalt installation, you will seal in the essential binder of the hot mix asphalt which is the glue that holds the stone and sand together for a smooth asphalt surface. After which, sealcoating should be scheduled on a 3-5 year rotation. With properly scheduled asphalt maintenance, your asphalt can last 30+ years. Without a scheduled maintenance plan, asphalt starts degrading shortly after the first year of instillation.
