Extend the Life of Your Pavement/Parking Area

Sealcoating provides a protective layer for your commercial driveways and parking areas, protecting them from various seasonal elements. Sealcoating is particularly essential during freezing conditions that freeze materials and bring rain and storms. A layer of sealcoating will make these areas look better and be safer for our customers, ultimately extending the lifespan of your parking lot and paved areas.

Avoid Repair Costs

With time, a pavement’s exposure to the elements leads to damage such as potholes and cracks that are costly to repair. Furthermore, if there are no repairs made, you could end up needing a new driveway or parking lot faster than you anticipated. Sealcoating is a way of minimizing these costs as time moves forward and materials age.

Add Protection Against Freeze/Thaw Cycles

Any unsealed pavement is susceptible to water damage. When winter arrives, these issues worsen as water enters small cracks and freezes. Water expands when it is frozen, leading to larger cracks and additional damages. Sealcoating will cover these cracks and keep water on the outside of your parking and paving materials.

Avoid Damage From Chemicals and Automobile Fluids

Fluids such as oil and gas often splash onto asphalt surfaces. Over time, they can dissolve into the surface, making it softer and causing it to crack or break. Although these spills can be easily wiped up or washed away with water, it’s better to protect your asphalt from potential damage by investing in sealcoating.
