Why your condo parking lot needs to be sealcoated.
Asphalt parking lots are the ideal choice for providing safe parking. New asphalt installation is cost-efficient and when appropriately maintained, the parking lot can effectively last for years. Possibly the most important part of parking lot maintenance is sealcoating. Sealcoating plays an important role in keeping your parking lot functioning well and appealing.
When you choose to work with a contractor that provides sealcoating, you stand to gain a large number of benefits, making the service imperative to maintaining your parking lot or your community.
Protecting Your Parking Lot Investment
The installation of a new asphalt lot represents a considerable investment, and one you’d likely prefer to avoid having to repeat. Sealcoating offers considerable protection for asphalt lots, preventing many of the common problems that can plague less prepared lots.
Parking lot sealcoating prevents:
- UV light damage, which is one of the leading causes of asphalt fading
- Oxidation by sealing in void spaces, which prevents oxygen from getting to the more sensitive materials underneath the top layer
- Material degradation caused by oil and gasoline spills
With proper maintenance, you can expect to expand the useful life of your parking lot by several years!
Reducing the Risk of Water Damage
Sealcoating provides an extremely efficient waterproofing layer to pavement and asphalt parking lots. This is crucial, as water seeping into the lot and any cracks or voids is the leading cause of asphalt failure. Water penetrating your lot causes the moisture to expand and contract with ambient temperatures, creating cracks that will require extensive repair, and potentially even the replacement of large sections of your lot.
Parking Lot Sealcoating Makes Cleaning Easier
An effectively applied sealcoating will ensure your parking lot remains smooth and consistently even. This not only makes sweeping and cleaning easier, but also helps to prevent problems with poor drainage, which may further worsen your asphalt parking lot’s ability to resist water penetration. With the sealer in place, parking lot cleaning is faster and more efficient to accomplish. This means less time spent on the project by your property managers, and a safer parking lot for residents.
