Commercial Sealcoating a Parking Lot
Lexington, NC Asphalt Parking Lot Pro Sealcoating
Asphalt Binder also called bitumen is the sticky semi-solid waste remaining after process of refining oil. When bitumen is heated to the same temperature of boiling water (212 F) it moves into a molten state, at which time, it’s mixed with pavement components. Hot Asphalt mix from the Asphalt plant is a mixture of molten 5% asphalt binder and 95% crushed stone. This has to be laid hot then as it cools it becomes solid. Asphalt pavement is flexible, long-lasting, low in maintenance and thankfully deadens traffic noise.
When Asphalt pavement is exposed to the outdoors the handsome deep black color fades overtime as the binder wears away- a process called oxidization. Sun-light, water, freeze and thaw cycles and high temperatures increases the rate of oxidization. As the pavement fades to grey, the pavement also loses flexibility and cracks begin to form as vehicles drive on it. Once water penetrates the subbase through cracks, the pavement damage picks up speed and potholes form.
Normally, asphalt parking lots, depending on quality of installation, will perform well for about 15 years. However, if treated with periodic sealcoating its lifespan could be nearly doubled. Lexington NC Asphalt and Sealcoating suggests periodic sealcoating as an inexpensive preventive to increase the lifespan of your asphalt parking lot.

- Dirt and vegetative debris can be easily swept away.
- The deep black color of newly laid Asphalt is restored.
- Parking Lot expected lifespan will increase usually by 8 to 10 years.
Lexington, NC Asphalt Driveway Pro Sealcoating: Best Local Cost
We’ve direct knowledge of Asphalt Driveways lasting 30 years when built with the proper depth of a strong gravel subbase, landscaping that flows water away from the driveway and maintained with periodic professional Sealcoating. Professional formulations of a Seal Coat are proprietary but all contain anti-oxidizers that applied periodically will protect from decay due to common oxidizers UV rays, rain, sleet, snow, oil spills, gas spills and rain. Oxidizers slowly leaches out (to the atmosphere) the asphalt binder (cement glue) that holds crushed rock and sand together, eventually, causing the driveway to crumble into sand and gravel. Applying Sealant in periodic applications slows oxidation to a snails pace. Also, Sealant fills in and seals small cracks and porous areas of the driveway so dirt and debris can be easily swept or hosed off. Professionals Asphalt Paving Contractors suggest Sealcoating be done every 2 to 3 years.
