Sealcoating frequency is often unique to your parking lot situation. The time period you should go between sealcoats depends on several factors. We recommend talking to a professional about a parking lot sealcoating plan.
Factors Affecting Sealcoating Frequency
How to determine if it’s time to sealcoat your asphalt pavement? Below are some of the factors you need to consider:
Pavement Sealer Quality
The type of pavement sealer used for sealcoating asphalt affects its longevity and durability. We suggest only using high-quality pavement sealer to ensure it lasts longer and to avoid paying for more maintenance. Hire a trusted and reliable contractor to help you choose the best sealer for your asphalt pavement.
Amount of Material Applied
The amount of sealer applied per sealcoating is another factor to consider. Make sure to follow manufacturer recommendations and hire an experienced contractor for assistance.
Sealer Mix Design
For your sealcoating project, make sure that sand is mixed in the sealcoat along with a polymer additive. The sand provides safety and traction for both pedestrian and vehicle traffic. It also contributes to the durability of your asphalt pavement.
If your commercial establishment is located in a region that gets extreme temperatures, you may need to sealcoat every two years to properly maintain your driveway. We suggest contacting a professional for an inspection.
Number of Coats Applied
It’s recommended to apply at least two coats of sealer to ensure its durability and longevity. Make sure that the first coat of sealer is fully dry before applying the second coat. Allow the second coat to cure before opening your driveway to vehicles.

If you want to preserve your pavement assets, asphalt sealcoating is the way to go. It’s recommended that commercial property owners do asphalt sealcoating every two to three years, depending on the factors mentioned above and how much traffic your driveway gets. Also, you need to consider how constantly your driveway is exposed to the elements such as snow and UV rays.
