Asphalt paving of parking lots is an economical solution for your parking needs. When properly maintained they will last 15-20 years. Asphalt paving is simply a combination of rock, sand and a binding agent, asphalt cement. This asphalt cement has a poor resistance to sunlight. The sunlight breaks down the natural chemical structure of asphalt.
The first visible sign of this breakdown is the color change from black to gray. Asphalt is a petroleum based product and when other petroleum products, fuel and oils, are introduced to your existing paving this causes a breakdown of the binding agent. Regular seal coating of your asphalt paving is important in maintaining your parking lot and will save you money over the life of your asphalt parking lot. Seal coating your asphalt paving increases its resistance to chemical deicers.
The important part of asphalt seal coating is to apply the protective sealer before any signs of deterioration are present. This will eliminate expensive costly repairs in the future. Remember asphalt seal coating protects your asphalt paving from deterioration. It does not reverse any deterioration so have your asphalt parking lot seal coated and restriped regularly and get all the value you can out of your asphalt paving.
