You should be aware that cracks and potholes cannot be avoided when one is dealing with cracks and potholes. If you do not take care of the seal on your facility, there can be accelerated cracking caused by asphalt pavement and that will reduce the service life of the pavements. Asphalt pavement can be affected by both dry and freezing weather by degrading it. Included in the environmental factors that can damage and crack asphalt are tree roots, vehicle traffic, oil, gas, sand and litter. You need to be aware that the pparking zones which are well maintained with services such as sweeping regularly, filling the cracks, repairs done on potholes and sealcoating can have a longer life than those that do not get such services.
You should understand that sealcoating makes the need for asphalt repair less. It helps prevent or limit oxidation of asphalt. You can use sealcoating to prevent or reducing the requirement to of asphalt oxidation. It can also be used for resisting the asphalt to be spoilt by gas, oil and salt. Once sealcoating has been completed at the right time having been applied properly and at the right timing and also the cracks being filled and asphalt repaired, they can have an increased pavement life. A high quality sealcoating product which is well installed will help protect your parking lot’s asphalt from weather, oil and traffic wear.
Cracks can start to form in the asphalt in case the asphalt is not properly seal coated which can then bring about potholes. Most asphalt pavements should be coated after every two or three years depending on your environment. Sealcoating should be done by professional paving and sealcoating companies, in order to get the best results. The cost of sealcoating is determined by more than just a calculated method based on square footage. What determines sealcoating are variables such as potholes to be repaired, number of cracks to be filled, number of coats needed and generally how much handwork is needed.
You should have a paving contractor come to your commercial construction so that he can check the place which needs sealcoating so that he can provide you with the expected cost for all the services to be performed. Although you can use asphalt to avoid your asphalt from being damaged, it also makes the parking lot beautiful. All the cracks that might be present should be sealed before sealcoating so that the cracks can be kept off completely. If the cracks are not well filled, water will get in and then cause damage to the asphalt pavement.
