Commercial asphalt protection is key to keeping a parking lot a prime piece of curb appeal for passerby and incoming customers. Although asphalt is a strong material, regular use by heavy vehicles and exposure to unpredictable weather can quickly leave it in shambles if it isn’t properly protected.
Here’s a look at why seal coating is the best option for your commercial property asphalt and how an investment in a reliable seal coating provider combined with a local porter service can bring your property so much more than a functional parking lot.
What is Seal Coating?
Seal coating is a liquid layer of protection that is spread across asphalt and pavement. It essentially seals the asphalt and prevents it from weather damage, and the wear and tear of excessive use.
Commercial property owners can use seal coating services to protect their exterior investment and benefit from these other benefits that come with this extra care for your pavement.
Seal Coat Extends the Life of Your Pavement
Your parking lot is constantly exposed to rainfall, vehicle fluids, and UV rays that can easily weaken its pavement and lead to expensive repairs.
For example, auto fluids alone can wreak havoc on an unsealed parking lot. As cars continue to use a lot, oil and gas will leak onto your asphalt, eventually seeping into the surface. This softens your pavement and creates premature cracks that cannot be reversed outside of repairs.
Seal coating forces contaminants to roll off of your pavement and allows your parking lot’s asphalt to extend its total lifetime by a few years.
It is a Simple Maintenance Job
One of the most impressive facts about seal coating is that it’s a relatively low-maintenance protection plan. As a commercial property manager, all you have to do is reach out to a local service provider and express your desire for seal coating protection.
Although Integrity Porter & Services don’t personally offer seal coating services, we have built reliable business relationships over the years with professionals we trust to help our clients get the asphalt protection they need.
Once the team has completed their services, your parking lot is effectively protected for at least one to three years, depending on the age of your lot and the amount of regular maintenance you put into keeping your asphalt clean.
It Makes Your Commercial Property Look Great!
When seal coating is applied to your parking lot, it goes on in a dark color that really brings out the visual appeal of your asphalt. Combine this with a fresh coat of paint to really make your parking lot striping pop, and your parking lot could easily become one of the most welcoming lots in the neighborhood.
Aside from having a great-looking parking lot, the clearer parking lines will also help control your parking lot’s traffic and increase the overall safety of your property.
