Is it Time to Sealcoat Your Parking Lot? Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Large Parking Lot

When maintained properly, an asphalt parking lot can last for decades. The longevity of asphalt is what makes it such a popular option for driveways, roads and parking lots. One of the best ways to protect your asphalt is with periodic sealcoating, which can prevent premature deterioration. Do you know the last time your business’ parking lot was sealed?

How Sealcoating Works

Water, friction, UV rays and oxidation all affect asphalt. The surface of asphalt can become porous, which can allow water and other substances to penetrate the pavement. Sealcoating is a preventive treatment that seals the surface of the asphalt. A combination of emulsifiers, fillers and additives are mixed with coal pitch tar to create an effective sealing material. The coating is spread evenly over the asphalt and allowed to cure, creating a protective seal over the surface.

When asphalt is protected with sealcoating, it can last up to 50% longer than unsealed surfaces. For your business, this can mean 10-20 years or more added to the lifespan of your parking lot. Considering the minimal investment, sealcoating offers an excellent return and may save your business thousands of dollars over the years.

How Often to Sealcoat Parking Lots

Sealcoating should be performed every few years. How often depends on the amount of traffic your parking lot endures. While a residential asphalt driveway may only need sealing every 3-5 years, commercial parking lots will need sealcoating more often due to more stress on the pavement. Most businesses should plan to sealcoat their parking lots every 2-3 years to keep them protected from the elements.

Sealcoating can be done any time of year, but it is best when the weather is dry and moderate. The treatment can be completed in one day, but it does require time to cure. Our team at U.S. Pave can coordinate your parking lot sealcoating to minimize inference with your busy times.

If it has been over two years since your last sealcoating service on your parking lot, it may be time to reseal your surface. Give our team at U.S. Pave a call for a free estimate on your sealcoating service.
