As a property owner you likely manage multiple tasks on a daily basis. It is easy to let some details fall through the cracks, but one area you don’t want to forget about is your parking lot. Your parking lot is the first thing that people see when they pull into your property. Consequently, if it is in bad shape it doesn’t lead to a good first impression. With this in mind, it may be time to look into sprucing up your lot by sealing the asphalt. If you need commercial parking lot sealcoating, please read on.
How Often Should I Sealcoat My Parking Lot?
If you have paid for commercial parking lot sealcoating in the past, you may wonder how often the process is necessary. The answer to this question is variable, but as a general rule of thumb, you should aim to sealcoat your parking lot every few years. Asphalt will fade due to oxidization regardless of what climate you live in, but sealcoating can help revive it. Also, the weather and a heavy amount of traffic can beat up your parking lot. These are all factors that you should consider when deciding your sealcoating schedule.
Benefits of Sealcoating?
Obviously, the major benefit of sealcoating is that it helps to improve the appearance of your parking lot. However, there are many more benefits that make it worth while. Sealcoating can help fix minor cracks to fend off more expensive repairs. It can also extend the life of your parking lot and protect the asphalt from water penetration which over time will destroy the asphalt. As a bonus, a smooth surface is much easier to keep clean making certain tasks, such as snow removal, a lot easier.
