Parking Lot Sealcoating FAQ
Why should you sealcoat your parking lot?
It is critical to sealcoat your parking lot while it is in great shape. Over time, your parking lot loses the oils that help to keep the asphalt together, which results in decreased flexibility. This reduced flexibility then results in cracking, the first step in pavement deterioration.
Sealcoating stops this process in its tracks, as well as blocks ultraviolet light, assists in water-proofing the pavement, and helps to absorb traffic loads.
What materials are used in sealcoating?
At Bart’s Asphalt LLC, we use an environmentally friendly asphalt emulsion sealer, a safer alternative to coal tar sealers, which contain cancer-causing materials. Unfortunately, many paving companies use coal tar sealer, making it the number one pollutant of rivers and lakes in Michigan.
Contact Bart’s Asphalt LLC’s for an environmentally responsible paving project. We also add 2-3 pounds of sand per gallon of sealer and an additional 1.5% polymer additive, increasing durability and longevity.
How long will the sealcoat last?
This is a variable for all of our clients! Sealcoat is a “wear coat,” meaning it is meant to be worn off over time, saving the pavement underneath. It is not uncommon to see sealer worn off in high-traffic areas within a year or two. That’s why we recommend regular sealing of paved areas.
How many coats of sealcoat should be applied?
In the case of commercial lots, two coats of sealcoat are usually recommended. This is because of the high traffic that these paved areas experience. In addition, applying two coats of our special asphalt emulsion sealcoat significantly improves longevity and durability!
