What Is Sealcoating?
Asphalt is primarily made of rock, stone, or gravel and some kind of bonding agent, the bonding agent is made of certain crude oils and maintaining this bonding agent is essential to keeping the longevity of the asphalt parking lot or driveway.
Unfortunately when rain, U.V. rays, and certain chemicals come in contact with the asphalt the bonding agents tent to weaken and your driveway and or parking lot becomes brittle and prone to crack and separate which is why you need to have a maintenance program that uses sealcoating to extend your driveway or parking lot's life.
"What is sealcoating" you may ask, sealcoating is the process in which an emulsion type product is used to reseal your paved area and keep it from receiving any further damage.
Can Sealcoating Help My Driveway/Parking Lot
Yes absolutely it can! The sealcoating resealing system is designed to fully reseal your driveway or parking lot so that you do not have to worry about having to redo your entire driveway or parking lot.
The best maintenance program would be to seal coat your asphalt area two to three years after you had it laid down and then four years after that and then minimally every four years thereafter to make sure your parking lot or driveway is in tiptop condition.

Overnight Sealcoating Job
As mentioned before Asphalt Specialties LLC did a sealcoating job at night and I will be telling you about it. First it started out with them cleaning the area of any debris that would hinder them from sealing the parking lot.
Then they filled in any pot holes in the parking lot and replaced any asphalt beyond repair, because if there was a huge pot hole they could not reseal that, that thing is to far gone, that's why they fill them in.
Then they mixed the batch of the sealcoating to reseal your parking lot, and spray down your parking lot with two to three layers of the black liquid depending on what your parking lot or driveway needs.
Then we will wait for the parking lot to dry so we can repaint all the markings we covered up in the restoration process and add any markings that you want like more handicap spaces, more parking spaces, or maybe just arrows directing where your customers need to go.
Lastly we clean up after ourselves if we make any messes or mistakes so your parking lot looks brand new with its fresh markings and new resealed finish, you will be the envy of the surrounding business'. If you happen to get one of our services go ahead and tell the businesses around you so we can work with them to.
