Asphalt parking lots are great for businesses due to their durability and cost effectiveness. However, vehicle and foot traffic, harsh sunlight, and water penetration can take a toll on asphalt over time. This is why asphalt sealcoating is necessary to prolong the life of your business’ asphalt parking lot. Sealcoating acts as a barrier between asphalt and harmful substances such as gasoline and oil that can leak out of customer’s cars onto a parking lot. When properly applied, sealcoating can save a business owner a significant amount of money in parking lot repairs. If your business needs asphalt sealcoating, you can rely on the experts at XSealer for high-quality results.
How to Determine the State of Your Parking Lot
If your parking lot has cracks and potholes or the color is fading to grey, it is probably time to have it sealcoated. The breaking down of asphalt begins with the oxidation of an untreated surface, causing it to become brittle. The top layer erodes and the larger aggregate is exposed which results in cracks.
Potholes are caused by water in the soil structure. These potholes continue to progress as the asphalt structure is penetrated by traffic overhead. It is important to repair any issues immediately to prevent further damage and to ensure that there is no safety threat to customers.
Why You Should Hire A Professional for Your Business’ Asphalt Sealcoating
