Winter is here with its harsh weather conditions. Now is when fresh sealcoating and proper maintenance pay off by doing their job to protect your parking lot —saving you time and money in the long run. You can take comfort if you’ve recently had your lot sealed.
Sealcoating is a protective layer applied to asphalt surfaces to help shield against water, UV rays, and other elements that can cause damage. It’s an essential maintenance step for any business with a parking lot. It helps extend the life of your asphalt and keep it looking fresh and new.
But during the winter months, pavement sealing is especially important. Snow, ice, and extreme temperature fluctuations can all wreak havoc on your parking lot, leading to cracks, potholes, and other damage. Applying a new coat of asphalt sealant before freezing temperatures arrive can help defend your asphalt against these brutal winter conditions and prevent costly repairs down the road.
How Often Should Sealcoating be Applied?
The frequency of sealcoating depends on many factors, including age and condition of your asphalt, amount of traffic, and the climate in your area. Generally, sealcoating should be applied every 2-3 years for best results.
If your pavement shows wear and tear, it may be time for a new sealer application. EastCoat Pavement Services can help you determine the best schedule based on the specific needs of your lot.
Don’t Wait Too Long —Protect Your Asphalt
The longer you wait, the more damage your asphalt may sustain, leading to costly repairs down the road. So, if you still need to seal your pavement, schedule a time to do it as soon as the weather allows. You’ll save time and money in the long run. Plus, a fresh coat of sealer will give your parking lot a polished, professional look that will impress your customers and clients.
