Should I Sealcoat My Parking Lot?

Should I Sealcoat My Parking Lot?

Every parking lot deserves a biannual sealcoating.

It’s no secret business owners wear a number of hats. From performing human resources duties to perfecting product/service offerings, marketing, payroll, and more, business owners do it all. It is easy to lose sight of the exterior of the business. As is often said, what is out of sight is out of mind. If you have neglected your parking lot, customers will take notice and will possibly stop coming to your place of business.

Why Parking Lot Condition and Aesthetics are so Important

Your business’s parking lot is your first chance to make a positive impression to customers, prospective business partners, and others. If your lot is rife with potholes, cracks, or other blemishes, people will not hold your business in high regard. Work with a professional asphalt sealcoating team to shield your lot from nature, oil and gas spills, and other destructive forces and your business will make that all-important positive first impression.

A Brief Look at Asphalt Functionality

Asphalt parking lots require a sealcoating every two years. Otherwise, your lot will gradually deteriorate to the point that it has significant functional and aesthetic flaws. Asphalt is an incredibly durable combination of rock, asphalt cement, fine stone, and gravel. Asphalt can take a pounding and still prove functional yet it will fade in color, deteriorate in condition, and prove brittle if neglected.
Even if your asphalt parking lot is partially shielded from the sun’s harmful rays, it will deteriorate in due time as a result of vehicle traffic. The petroleum products from vehicles are a major threat to your asphalt lot. Everything from oil to gas and even brake fluids compromise asphalt and spur cracking. The solution is ACPLM’s asphalt sealcoating.

The Many Reasons to Invest in Asphalt Sealcoating

Asphalt sealcoating is the application of a protective layer of asphalt. This protective shield guards the underlying asphalt against oil, water, and the sun’s UV rays. An asphalt sealcoating also makes your property look that much more attractive. This rich hue makes your business appear more professional and consequently, more deserving of the public’s business. The fact that asphalt sealcoating keeps customers and staff that much safer by filling cracks for improved traction is an added benefit as well.
