The Benefits of Sealcoating Your Asphalt
In Arizona, asphalt can be especially susceptible to the sun and the heat of our torrid home. As it is a black substance that absorbs as much heat as possible, it can take a lot of heat damage over years and years of being fully exposed to the sun with no protective coating to keep it from cracking and crumbling. Luckily, there are ways to avoid the costly expense of repairs needed to maintain the look and durability of your commercial asphalt. Sealcoating is one of the best ways we have available to us to keep our asphalt protected against the harsh rays of the sun. Here are some benefits of sealcoating your asphalt.
For a majority of the year in Arizona, our temperatures range from eighty degrees to upwards of one hundred and twenty degrees. This kind of heat can be brutal on your commercial asphalt. In addition to cracks, the asphalt can fade over time, making your lot look decrepit and homely. Implementing a seal coat on your asphalt will deflect the harmful UV rays that threaten its integrity, and it will keep your asphalt looking strong instead of frail. Sealcoating the asphalt of your commercial property is essential to giving it the long lasting life it needs. Although we do not have horribly adverse weather conditions that affect the asphalt as much as the sun does, rain and dust storms still play a minor role in the decay and wearing down of your asphalt. Sealcoating is a great way to remedy this and make sure it lasts as long as possible so you get the full life of your asphalt.
Another great benefit to sealcoating your asphalt once it is laid is that it will protect the surface from stains and spills that often occur from oil, oxidation, chemical spills, and other factors that could potentially harm it or break it down over time. Sealcoating your asphalt is a far more cost effective way to pave your lot than choosing another material that could be even more susceptible to outside wear and tear and cannot be sealed. Asphalt both looks great, and it’s durability is appealing to those who choose this material over another. Hot-mix asphalt is dependable and it is relatively easy to maintain, especially if you have it seal coated once it is properly mixed and laid on your lot. If it is a parking lot, there will be plenty of cars parked there and sometimes those cars drip oil. Without a good, long lasting sealcoat over the asphalt, it can become decrepit and fragile over time.
Asphalt is the most common material used in parking lots all around the world. What some don’t understand is that it is not impervious to damage, so sealcoating it will help you in the long run. Because of the guaranteed protection sealcoating offers, your long term repair costs will decrease drastically, and you won’t have to spend an exorbitant amount of money trying to get it repaired. Maintaining asphalt is fairly easy, and it can be even easier when you get it sealcoated, ensuring that your asphalt lasts as long as possible and is a cost effective method to enhancing the look of your parking lot.
