Spraying Sealcoat on Parking Lot

Budget Asphalt Parking Lot Sealcoating

As soon as its paved, Asphalt pavement begins decay through oxidization (leaching) of the binder the black glue that holds the pavement mix of sand and gravel together. Oxidization is caused by the elements- UV-rays, rain, sleet, snow and freezing temperatures.  As the pavement oxidizes over time, it loses flexibility and the deep black color of pavement fades to light grey showcasing the loss of binder. Periodic Sealcoating of the parking lot can slow the rate of oxidization down to a crawl.  Generally, an asphalt parking lot, depending on quality of installation, will function well about 10 to 15 years.  However, if the parking lot is maintained by sealcoating every 2 to 3 years and repairing cracks quickly, its lifespan could be more than doubled.  NC Asphalt and Sealcoating Paving of Charlotte encourages periodic sealcoating as an inexpensive maintenance option to increase the lifespan of your asphalt parking lot.

Parking Lot Sealcoating Benefits:

  1. Professional Sealcoat will fill in and seal minor cracks and pitting
  2. Smooths slight irregularities in the pavement.
  3. UV-Rays are reflected back to the atmosphere.
  4. Creates a waterproof barrier.
  5. Spills can be easily washed away.
  6. Dirt is easily blown or washed away.
  7. Restores the deep black color.
  8. Extends the Parking Lot life-span.

Halfway done with Driveway Sealcoat

Charlotte Asphalt Driveway Pro Sealcoating Best Local Cost

NC  Asphalt and Sealcoating in Charlotte offers professional application of commercial sealcoating to protect and waterproof your asphalt driveway.   UV rays, sleet, snow, rain and oil and gas spills are common oxidizers that slowly leach out the asphalt binder (the black glue that holds the crushed rock and sand in the pavement together).  All Professional sealcoat formulations contain anti-oxidation and through periodic sealcoat applications it will slow oxidation, down to a snail’s pace.  Sealcoating fills and smooths surface cracks, small pockmarks and porous areas of the old asphalt effectually reproducing that like-new surface where dirt and debris easily washes off.  Sealcoating should be done every 2 to 3 years as suggested by most industry specialists.

The Truth about DIY Driveway Sealcoating:

  1. Homeowners mistakenly think cleaning the driveway before sealcoating is not necessary- sealcoat won’t bond in dirty areas.
  2. Sealcoat Products available to homeowners are inferior to Professional ones- they contain more water.
  3. Cost savings are minor compared to what Asphalt Contractors charge- especially for long driveways.
  4. Professionals will repair large cracks with Hot Rubber crack repair mix before sealcoating – often beyond the abilities of Homeowners.
  5. Homeowners’ wrongly think more sealcoat is better- thick globs of sealant may never harden and will track to other surfaces.
  6. Odors released during Sealcoat application often causes skin rashes and coughing.

Asphalt Driveway Resurface

Cost Friendly Asphalt Driveway Resurface

Many residential clients would like to install a completely new asphalt driveway in place of a faded grey and heavily cracked driveway.  But, when faced with the redo cost, they wonder if there is another way.  Resurfacing is a way of renewing a troubled driveway for an attractive cost about 1/3 of a tear out and rebuild.  Basically, a driveway resurfacing removes 1.5 to 2 inches of the damaged pavement by milling or grinding- very carefully to keep the driveway’s incline that helps it shed water.  Next, the pavement is cleaned of all debris, an adhesive (tack coat) is laid down and the new asphalt surface is applied in layers to match what was removed.  Warning! areas that indicated subbase damage like alligator cracking or potholes should be repaired otherwise the damage will again appear. This is called reflection – problems in the subbase reflect back up through the new asphalt layer. Best to hire an asphalt contractor like NC Asphalt and Sealcoating Paving who are experienced in the dynamics of subbase support.

When to Consider Driveway Resurfacing:

  1. Driveway is more faded grey than black.
  2. Surface cracking too widespread to consider repairing.
  3. Just a Few Pothole that can be easily repaired
  4. Ruts from Heavy Truck Tires
  5. Slight amount of ponding
