Q - When should a parking lot be seal coated?
Sealing is effective to renew old asphalt surfaces that have become dry and brittle with age, to seal small surface cracks and to inhibit raveling (loss of surface aggregate). So, sealing should be done as soon as any of these distresses are noted.( Pot hole, base failure, depressions, alligator cracks, dry surface, surface cracking, or edge cracks.)
Q - How long will a sealed lot last?
If an asphalt lot is sealed soon after construction and re-sealed every 2 to 3 years, we have seen lots that have lasted over 30 years with no major problems.
Q - What is the price difference between seal coating and asphalt?
Seal coating is approximately 10% of the cost of new asphalt.
Q - What is the best time of year to seal a lot?
Because seal coat is water based, the summer is by far the best time. However, seal coat can be applied during other season as long as the temperature is not below 50 degrees.
