Maintaining Asphalt with Sealcoating for Property Managers

If you are a property manager, then you know first-hand what it takes to attract good tenants. One thing you may be overlooking is your pavement, and something you may not have thought about are the benefits of sealcoating.

Benefits of Sealcoating Property Managers Miss

Asphalt pavement can have a dramatic impact on the visual appeal of any property. Make sure your property is looking its best and attracting the right type of tenant by establishing a maintenance plan for your property’s asphalt pavement. Not only will maintaining your asphalt with sealcoating improve visual appeal, it will ultimately extend the life of the asphalt. A proactive approach to maintenance helps property managers and owners reduce future costs and potential liabilities. Other benefits include:

  1. Improves Visual Appeal
    Freshly sealcoated asphalt has a dark, shiny black look – similar to brand new asphalt surface. Well-maintained asphalt enhances the visual appeal of your property.
  2. Protects Asphalt From Oxygen
    Sealcoating asphalt protects it from oxygen, ultraviolet radiation, and fills any surface gaps to prevent further deterioration.
  3. Easier Cleaning
    Sealcoating your asphalt on a regular schedule creates a smooth barrier that is much easier to clean or hose off. From sweeping to washing spills off your pavement, you will find your property maintenance is far easier after you sealcoat.
  4. Increases Durability
    Several factors, including weather and the wight of your vehicles, can cause your asphalt to expand and contract. This increases the likelihood of cracks forming. Cracks allow water, oxygen and chemicals to penetrate into your asphalt, speeding up the deterioration of your pavement. Sealcoating your asphalt will increase its flexibility and helps prevent further damage to your pavement. In turn, this will extend the overall lifetime of your asphalt.
  5. Extends the Life of Your Asphalt
    Depending on the amount and type of traffic you see on your pavement, you will want to adjust your sealcoating maintenance plan accordingly. With more frequent and heavier traffic, expect to perform a sealcoating more often to maintain the integrity of your pavement.

Sealcoating is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to improve the look of your property while creating a safer surface for both you and your customers or tenants. Asphalt pavement issues should be addressed at the first possible opportunity. As part of your asphalt maintenance plan, this is one of the most important, yet overlooked, steps of property maintenance, and the benefits of sealcoating will become apartment before long.
