When it comes to success in business, first impressions are paramount. No matter what type of business you own, your parking lot is the first thing your customers see. What do you want your parking lot to say about the quality they can expect from your products and your commitment to customer satisfaction? You may not even realize that there is a great deal you can do to maintain your parking areas. At XSealer Asphalt Maintenance, we recommend that you use a commercial asphalt sealer regularly to reduce unsightly oxidation, cracks, and prevent damage.
Benefits of Using a Commercial Asphalt Sealer for Your Parking Lot
Sealcoating your parking lot is not just about visual aesthetics, although curb appeal alone is certainly well worth the investment. Asphalt pavement is an aggregate of stone or rock and gravel held together by a binder that is a derivative of certain crude oils. Exposure to the elements can cause the binder to break down reducing the flexibility of the asphalt, making it dryer and more prone to cracking. Large cracks and potholes in your customer parking areas can leave you vulnerable to liability claims. Sealcoating protects your asphalt, reducing oxidation, cracking, and the need for major repairs. Your parking lot will last longer, look better, and be safer for your customers with regular sealcoating.
How Often Should I Sealcoat My Parking Lot?
We recommend sealcoating every 1 to 3 years. Studies show that every $1 spent on asphalt preservation can prevent $6 to $10 spent on future repair and replacement costs. As oil prices increase, so will the cost of replacing the asphalt. Regular maintenance can extend the life of your parking lot by two or more times compared to leaving the asphalt unprotected.
