The Importance of Sealcoating: Protect, Preserve, and Enhance Your Parking Lot

Parking lots often serve as the first point of contact between a business and its customers. Their state can significantly influence clients’ first impressions and experiences. That’s why Premier Parking Lot Maintenance recommends sealcoating as a key part of your property maintenance strategy.

Reduces Oxidation: As asphalt oxidizes, it turns from a dark black to a light gray. The color change is from the bitumen oxidizing. This color change also signals that the asphalt is losing its flexibility. One of the key benefits of asphalt parking lots is the flexibility of the pavement. When asphalt is no longer flexible, it is more prone to cracking.

Extended Lifespan: Sealcoating forms a protective layer over your parking lot, shielding it from elements like UV rays, water, and oil leaks. This extends the lifespan of your asphalt, saving you costly repairs or replacements down the line.

Improved Appearance: A fresh sealcoating enhances the visual appeal of your parking lot. The sleek, dark finish looks professional and makes parking lines more visible, leading to a better customer experience.

Prevent Damage: Sealcoating helps to prevent Damage caused by extreme weather conditions, which is especially beneficial in areas with harsh winters or scorching summers.

Cost-effective Maintenance: Regular sealcoating can save you money in the long run. It’s a cost-effective maintenance technique as it prevents expensive Damage before it happens, reducing the need for extensive repairs.

Safety: A well-maintained, seal coated parking lot is safer for both drivers and pedestrians. It reduces the risk of accidents caused by potholes or other types of surface damage, contributing to a safer environment for everyone.

Taking advantage of sealcoating services from Premier Parking Lot Maintenance means investing in a long-term solution that enhances appearance, boosts safety, and saves you money in the long run. Experience the Premier difference today!

FAQs About Commercial Sealcoating In Indianapolis

How often should I seal coat my parking lot?

It would be best if you planned to have your parking lot seal coated every 2-4 years. The amount of traffic, weather and snow removal will impact how often you need to seal your lot seal coated.

Should I Have My New Parking Lot Seal coated?

No. The new asphalt needs time to cure. If you apply sealcoating too soon, you can do more harm than good. We recommend waiting six months before applying sealcoating.

How long does the sealcoating process take?

The time it takes to seal coat a parking lot can vary depending on its size, but generally, a typical commercial parking lot can be completed in a day or two. When conducting a site visit, we will advise on the time we will need to complete your project.

How long do I wait before opening my lot up to traffic?

After applying the seal coat, it typically needs 24-48 hours to dry before traffic can resume. However, depending on the temperature and humidity, it might take longer. Our team leader will advise you on how long to wait before allowing cars on your parking lot.

Can sealcoating fill existing cracks or potholes?

 Sealcoating is primarily a preventive maintenance method and is not designed to fill large cracks or potholes. Before sealcoating, any structural repairs, like filling cracks or patching potholes, should be done to ensure a smooth and effective sealcoating application.

How much does it cost to seal coat a commercial parking lot?

The cost of sealcoating a commercial parking lot can vary greatly depending on several factors, including the size of the lot, the current condition of the asphalt, and the number of coats needed. For an accurate quote, it’s best to contact a professional service like Premier Parking Lot Maintenance.

What are the different kinds of asphalt sealers?

There are several different types of sealcoating products available on the market, each with its own strengths and applications. Here are the most common types:

Coal Tar Emulsion: This is one of the most common and durable types of sealcoating. It’s made from a mix of coal tar, water, and emulsifiers that help it to mix smoothly. Coal tar emulsion is known for its resistance to fuel, oil, and harsh weather conditions, and it provides a deep, rich black finish. However, coal tar sealers are known to contain a large quantity of Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). PAHs are known to be harmful to people and are bad for the environment. Additionally, the state of Indiana attempted to ban the sale and use of coal tar sealers in 2017. However, the bill (Senate Bill 168) died in committee.

Asphalt Emulsion: Asphalt emulsion sealers are environmentally friendly alternatives to coal tar emulsion sealers. Made from asphalt, water, and emulsifiers, this type of sealcoating is easier on the environment and less irritating to the skin. It’s generally not as resistant to fuel and oil as coal tar emulsion, but it still offers good protection against weather damage and UV rays.

Fast Dry Sealers: Fast dry sealers are typically used in high-traffic areas or when weather conditions might not allow for the longer drying times required by other coatings. These sealers often contain additives that allow them to dry quickly, sometimes in as little as an hour.

Acrylic Sealers: Acrylic sealers are premium, high-performance products with excellent UV protection and color retention. They’re available in a range of colors, allowing for aesthetic flexibility. They are often used in high-end commercial applications or situations where the parking lot’s aesthetics are a high priority.

Oil-Based Sealers: Oil-based sealers penetrate the asphalt to help replace lost oils and rejuvenate the asphalt’s binding properties. These sealers provide a shiny, glossy finish that some property owners prefer. However, they’re not as commonly used as coal tar or asphalt emulsion sealers due to environmental concerns.

The importance of professional sealcoating services in preserving the integrity and aesthetic appeal of your commercial parking lot cannot be overstated.
