Asphalt pavement is designed to be a flexible surface made from tar emulsion. Aging can become accelerated if the pavement is left unsealed.
Sealcoating is the application of a thin coat of coal tar pitch or asphalt cement mixed with inert fillers, water, emulsifying agents or additives.
Asphalt Care Inc. uses quality materials and a proven sealcoating technique to deliver outstanding resistance to water seepage, petroleum spills, oxidation from the sun and other damaging elements. Sealcoated pavements will last 30-50% longer than pavements that are left unsealed.
Why sealcoat? Consider these reasons:
Customers and tenants often see a parking lot before any other aspect of your property. Sealcoating ensures a positive first impression by enhancing the appearance of your property.
Sealcoating creates a smooth and even surface, making your pavement far easier to clean.
An independent study by the Pavement Coatings Technology Center at the University of Nevada at Reno shows conclusively that maintaining asphalt with sealcoat every three years saves an average of $152,500 for a typical commercial parking lot over 15 years.
This equates to a 48% savings over the life of an unmaintained parking lot. With oil prices considerably higher and less stable today, the savings could be even higher than this estimate.
