Asphalt sealcoating is the process of applying a protective pavement coating, which protects the asphalt from harmful elements such as oil, water, and UV damage. This is one of many services offered by A1 Professional Asphalt & Sealing, LLC to help commercial property owners maintain the longevity and aesthetic appeal of the life of their asphalt.
How does the asphalt sealcoating process work?
The asphalt sealcoating process begins with cleaning your asphalt to make sure it’s free of water, oil, debris, or any other substance that would prevent the sealant from working properly. When the asphalt becomes dry, the sealcoats will be applied in multiple layers with a sprayer or squeegee. This sealcoat will usually take 24-48 hours to completely dry. Once dried, you will be able to resume business as normal and enjoy your new, beautiful asphalt coating.
What are the benefits of asphalt sealcoating?
1. Sealcoating is cost-efficient
Sealcoating can save you a lot of money compared to installing new asphalt. For example, installing fresh asphalt will cost roughly $1.50 to $2.00 per square foot while sealcoating will only cost about $0.15 to $0.25 per square foot. This will save you approximately ten times the amount you would pay to have new asphalt installed on your pavement.
2. Sealcoating protects your asphalt from costly damages
Asphalt sealcoating will protect your asphalt from the harmful effects of gasoline, oil, water, snow, oxidation, and chemical spills. It will also prevent erosion and fill surface voids to protect your asphalt from the sun’s UV rays as well as oil and chemicals penetrating the surface of your asphalt.
3. Sealcoating is low-maintenance
Lastly, asphalt sealcoating doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. It can last 24-36 months before you’ll need to apply a new layer. This keeps your asphalt looking at its best for a long time and prevents substance damage from quickly reappearing in your pavement.
