Looks are Important!
The first impression of a facility starts in the parking lot. A rich, black top with fresh striping is inviting and displays a sense of success and pride. If the asphalt becomes oxidized and crack-ridden, it not only can make a negative impression on the property and it's tenants, it also accelerates further pavement failure and the need for expensive repairs.
Invest a Little to Get a Lot
If you don't invest a little in preventative asphalt maintenance, you're sure to contribute to premature failure and cost yourself significantly more, long-term. Being proactive, such as sealcoating, will prolong the life of your asphalt and your budget. Sealcoating about every 2-3 years is the proactive step that will provide your dry, brittle asphalt with the necessary adhesive and waterproofing to maintain a durable and beautiful parking lot. It will maintain the asphalt's flexibility, slow down oxidation, prevent raveling, and provide a rich, like-new appearance. More importantly, it will protect the sub-base from water penetration and deterioration. An asphalt surface is only as strong as the foundation beneath it!
