Orlando Parking Lot Sealcoating
Sealcoating applies a strong barrier between the asphalt pavement of your parking lot and the elements. U.S. Pave Orlando believes the best way to protect your asphalt parking lot is through sealcoating. This vital treatment extends the life of your asphalt, extending your investment and maintaining a fresh, clean and inviting appearance as customers enter your property.
Routine sealcoating can increase the longevity of your asphalt by up to 50%. The type of sealcoat application you need depends on your existing asphalt and its condition. U.S. Pave offers the following types of sealcoat treatments:
- Fog coat sealant is a fine mist of emulsified asphalt sprayed over the existing asphalt surface.
- Slurry coat of asphalt is a heavier mixture made from asphalt, sand and water. This adds a strong wear-proof layer with added oil to your existing asphalt.
- Chip seal coat is the heaviest treatment, as it restores the surface with layers of aggregates and asphalt to create a strong, stable asphalt surface.
U.S Pave Orlando has over 35 years of experience with paving and sealcoating, and our expertise shows in our great preparation. Before any sealcoating begins, we repair and fill any cracks, holes and crumbling areas. Then, a thorough cleaning removes all dirt, oil and other debris. This allows for the best adhesion of the sealcoat as possible.
After sealcoating, you should allow 24 to 48 hours for the surface to cure completely. We work with all our clients to keep traffic flowing and minimize disruptions as much as possible until sealcoated parking areas are ready for public use.

When Do I Need Sealcoating?
How do you know when your parking lot needs sealcoating? Obvious signs of wear and damage always signal that repairs are needed. Don’t wait until your parking lot is filled with sinkholes and uneven surfaces to consider maintenance. Some tell-tale signs you need sealcoating include:
- Grey color – older, worn pavement that shows the grey aggregate underneath is ready for sealcoating.
- Loose gravel or other substrates – lots of loose surface gravel and sand mean the aggregates of your pavement are wearing away.
- Cracks throughout the surface – cracked asphalt is allowing moisture to penetrate underneath to the substrate and base, eroding this area and causing sinkholes.
Sealcoating may not be the best option for your parking lot. More extensive wear, cracks or uneven surfacing may require more extensive repairs. Milling, resurfacing and overlay are cost-effective methods of repair that removes the top surface and replaces it with fresh asphalt. Our talented and experienced teams from U.S. Pave can evaluate your parking areas and recommend the best measures to restore your asphalt.
