Sealcoating is the process of applying a protective sealer over an entire asphalt surface to delay the aging process of a structurally sound parking lot. While sealcoating is not a structural repair, it plays a significant role in the preservation of your parking lot by improving visual aesthetics, protecting the surface from oxidation and gas/oil spills, and extending the overall life and value of your parking lot.
Our standard sealcoat application is fortified with sand and a latex additive for increased durability. Our sealer not only meets the performance standards of ASTM D5727 and Federal Specification R-P-355E, but also meets the requirement of FAA Specification P627. Any cracked or failed areas will need to be repaired prior to sealcoating.
To be effective, sealer must be applied properly. Sealcoating should be done when ambient temperature is 50 degrees and rising for 10 consecutive days. Our sealcoating season usually begins around the first part of May and ends around Halloween.
