March, 2014 by Alma Abell

When you need asphalt paving, repair or maintenance in Jackson, you want to hire professionals to get the job done right. If your parking lot isn’t maintained with proper sealcoating, you’ll be replacing it sooner than you’d like. Below you’ll learn why you should have regular MI Asphalt Sealcoating and maintenance done on your business parking lot.

Q.) How can sealcoating protect my parking lot?

A.) A sealcoat on your parking lot acts a barrier to prevent the asphalt from deteriorating too fast. The elements, plus the compounds in oils and gas from vehicles are hard on asphalt and can cause damage to the surface. Once the pavement is damaged, it doesn’t take long for it to go downhill. This leads to cracks, potholes and an unsafe and unattractive parking lot. Once a sealcoating is applied to your parking lot, water and oils cannot penetrate and harm the surface.

Q.) How often should I have sealcoating and maintenance done on my parking lot?

A.) You should apply the first sealcoat in about a year after your parking lot is paved. After that, it’s recommended that you have a fresh coat of sealcoat every two to three years. The frequency of the sealcoat depends on how much traffic is on your parking lot on a regular basis. A lot of traffic causes your parking lot to wear faster and receive more damage.

Q.) What are some of the other benefits of sealcoating my parking lot?

A.) MI Asphalt Sealcoating will make your parking lot look like new and it will have a shiny black appearance instead of being a dull gray. It also hides tiny cracks and imperfections in the asphalt. Sealcoating also helps the snow removal process because the surface is level. A sealcoated parking lot is safer for your customers because of the smooth surface and the absence of cracks and deterioration in the asphalt.
