Traffic, weather, and more can damage any commercial parking lot.

Sealcoating is one form of maintenance that can maximize the life span of commercial parking lots.

Sealcoating can be a great solution for smaller cracks that develop as asphalt oxidizes and becomes brittle. Before these cracks extend to the subgrade, sealcoating can fill them in, preventing the cracks from spreading while keeping water, chemicals, and other damaging elements out.
That makes commercial sealcoating a highly effective way to maximize the life span of parking lots. Beyond that, commercial sealing will also:
In general, sealcoating should be done every couple of years, starting about 12 to 24 months after new construction. You want to wait about a year after newly paving parking lots before installing the sealcoating in order to let the oils from the asphalt set and cure properly. Applying a sealcoating to pavement too early can backfire in terms of the intended effect—it can end up making the underlying pavement more susceptible to cracking if the asphalt oils haven’t properly cured first.
Once it is time for sealcoating, routine applications as part of regular parking lot maintenance can keep lots in good condition. In some cases, like situations in which commercial lots see heavy traffic and/or near-constant exposure to the elements, sealcoating may need to be done more often than every 2 to 3 years.
Within about 24 hours, you can walk on new sealcoating. Within about 2 to 3 days, vehicles can be driven over new sealcoating on parking lots. If there are different timelines for using your parking lot after a sealcoating project, our team will share them with you so you can take the proper steps after the job to protect the work and reopen the lot for use.
