At Columbus Asphalt Paving Pros, we understand that a new parking lot, driveway, or anything in between is an investment. So why not protect that investment with seal coating?
There are many ways that property owners and homeowners can protect their investments and extend the longevity of the items they pay so much to acquire. Asphalt paving is no different. Whether you have professional asphalt paving for your commercial or residential needs, it is incumbent upon you to invest in regular maintenance to increase the lifespan.
Sealcoating is one of the best ways to do this.
This is a literal coating that gets applied to your pavement in order to improve the appearance and protect it from the elements.
Our professional contractors add a thin layer of liquid over your paved surface. While this service doesn't rectify things like existing cracks in the asphalt, it goes a long way toward preventing these issues from taking place at all. Once the layer has dried and adhered to your asphalt paving, it can protect the surface from any fluid spills from vehicles like that time you try to change your own oil or the heavy UV rays that beat down on it in the summer, even the rain and snow that melts and reforms every winter

Seal coating is something we recommend you invest in every 3-5 years. This is not something we do for brand new asphalt paving but rather to help maintain the integrity of old asphalt. The more often you invest in this extra layer of protection, the better you can keep the appearance of your pavement and the more protection you can provide it against the elements, something that is particularly important for people who live and work in Ohio.
Our professional contractors recommend that you invest in seal coating in the warmer months, after the threat of rainfall and snow has passed. This will give it ample time to dry and fuse with the asphalt before the upcoming winter.
The reason for this is that the coating process requires specific temperatures in the air and on the pavement. It's recommended that the temperature hover around 55 degrees Fahrenheit or higher the entire time the coating is being applied by our contractors and for 8 hours immediately following. By checking the weather, we can help you arrange a time that will allow the bonding process the best chance of success.
Once you decide on sealcoating, it's important that any minor repairs be dealt with before the process is initiated. When our contractors arrived on site to give you an estimate they can verify whether you have cracks or potholes that need to be filled before the coating takes place. If there are any fluids like car oil, or dirt and debris on the pavement, all of that should be cleared away before the contractor's arrived on-site to begin the work.
As mentioned, this level of coating protects your asphalt pavement by literally filling in the surface damage and adding an extra layer to protect the asphalt against absorption of UV rays, fluids, and water or snow.
Getting this done every few years saves a significant amount of money in the long run by extending the lifespan and reducing the number of repairs such as cracked filling or crack paving.
As a business owner, it's important to keep the facade of your operation in Tip-Top shape. You can always repaint the exterior of an office building but what about the parking lot?
Sealcoating enhances the appearance of your pavement which, with exposure to the elements will start to fade over time. Regular applications by our trained professionals can give your parking lot a facelift. If everything is fading you can combine your sealcoating with line striping the presenter brand new parking lot.
Still not sure whether you should invest in sealcoating or repaving or asphalt? Our experts can help you decide. The condition of your pavement is going to be the biggest determining Factor when it comes to this decision. If you have too many cracks, serious pot holes and depressions, and all of the lines in your parking lot or faded, it might be time to repave and then consider investing in sealcoating every few years thereafter.
