Sealcoating Your Parking Lot Helps Your Business

Unlike a driveway, doing this yourself is not cost effective. If you are a typical business owner or property manager, you already have a list a mile long to do.

Since the parking lot is often the first place your customers can get a 1st impression of you, why allow your parking lot to get worn & cracked? Short of just looking much better, we know sealcoating services done professionally can extend the life of your lot.

We all know that the New England winters can wreak havoc on pavement. Periodic pavement maintenance can double the life of your pavement and reduce the likelihood of larger repair issues, while providing a smooth, clean jet-black finish for your parking lot that will beautify your business…..IF it is done correctly. By sealcoating now, you can avoid costly types of asphalt repair services like potholes & overlays.

Parking lots are often exposed to sun all day, everyday (when it is sunny). Sealcoating (done correctly) prevents oxidation and resists the ultraviolet rays that come with that consistent exposure. Over time the asphalt binder (tar) hardens & this hardening results in a brittle surface that eventually cracks. when you have a crack in the pavement, it enables water to penetrate the pavement, often into the sub base, weakening it. When the temperature drops well below freezing, as it often does here in New England, the cracks grow exponentially. Drag a plow over those cracks & you get a pot hole pretty quick. Sealcoating protects the surface and fills surface voids, reducing pavement’s exposure to oxygen and water and extending pavement life by providing a protective shell that prevents water from penetrating through the asphalt.

Believe it or not, oil & gas that leaks from vehicles can wreak havoc on pavement. A layer of sealcoating resists this materail & does not allow it penetrate into the pavement. The professional-grade coal tar sealer that JDK uses contains additives that enable it to resist any such leaks. The sealcoat is a dark color which also hides the stains of leaked oil & gas.

So by sealcoating your parking lot, it will last longer (sealcoating is much less expensive than re-paving) & look much better. This gives your customers the confidence that you are a viable & professional business. Hey, in this economic climate, every little bit helps, right?

One more thing, sealcoating your driveway is something you may be able to accomplish on your own during the weekend, HOWEVER, a parking lot sealcoating co is best left to a professional sealcoating company. Dont be fooled by the cheapest quote either. More on that for our next article.
