Seal coating is designed to protect asphalt paving from the damaging effects of the environment, including moisture and ultraviolet oxidation. As asphalt surfaces dry out and become brittle, cracks may occur and pot holes develop. To reduce long-term maintenance expenses, industry experts recommend that pavement be seal coated every two to three years, depending on traffic and overall condition.
It is important to use seal coat and other preventative and corrective parking lot maintenance measures because replacement of asphalt can be very expensive. Obtaining the best return for your pavement maintenance dollar is not a simple decision process. A knowledgeable asphalt contractor like Asphalt Management Inc. can evaluate the condition of your pavement, design a cost effective maintenance program and help you maximize your budget dollars.
