Q: Why Sealcoat? Protect, Preserve & Beautify
A: Sealcoating is a critical element of a comprehensive pavement maintenance program providing protection, preservation and beautification to the asphalt surface. Most importantly, sealcoating extends the life of the pavement saving property managers and homeowners’ money due to costly repairs or the need to repave more often than necessary.
“Sealcoating is essential in pavement preservation and extending the life of your asphalt pavement,” says Greg Houser, Vice President of Research and Development for Neyra Industries. “There are many benefits of sealcoating asphalt, including improving visual aesthetics, resisting oxidation from the sun, replacing eroded surfaces, extending the life and optimizing the overall value of the asphalt pavement.”
Sealcoating Extends Life of Pavement and Saves Money
Against the drying action of the sun which causes raveling and cracking of the pavement and allows water penetration
Against moisture and rain water that can severely damage pavements due to the freezing and thawing of the asphalt
Gas and oils which can soften, weaken and destroy the durability of asphalt pavement
Provides a dark black color surface that gives the pavement a rich, new-looking appearance
Q: Why Crack Seal?
A: The most common reason for pavement failure is due to moisture penetrating the surface. These cracks allow moisture to infiltrate pavement resulting in further cracking, potholes and total pavement failure. Without a thorough pavement maintenance plan that includes crack sealing, property managers and home owners can incur unnecessary and expensive pavement repairs.
Crack sealing is the most economic and practical process for filling cracks and protecting asphalt from water intrusion, which ultimately extends the life of the pavement surface. This best practice also prevents debris and vegetation from invading the pavement structure causing further damage.
Proactivity and early intervention are the key to lengthening the life cycle of asphalt pavement. Once a crack is evident, the rate of pavement deterioration accelerates requiring quick action to protect the surface from increased damage. Crack sealing is a vital element in early intervention efforts as it slows the deterioration process and can significantly add to the life of a pavement, maximizing a customer’s investment.
Q: Why Line Striping?
A: Line striping a parking lot is a fairly inexpensive practice to beautify any property’s appearance and “curb appeal”. A clean, well-maintained parking lot indicates a professional outlook in all aspects of business and translates into a positive first impression for employees and patrons. However, many commercial property owners and managers underestimate the benefits that a thoughtfully planned and marked parking lot can yield, such as proper vehicle and pedestrian traffic flow, increased safety and security as well as ensuring ADA compliance when needed. These benefits along with the visual appeal of line striping provide a great return on investment for this element of a comprehensive pavement maintenance plan.
Q: Why sweep a parking lot?
A: In addition to beautifying a parking lot, sweeping regularly can protect the asphalt surface by removing abrasive dirt, sand and other debris which can shorten the service life of a parking area’s pavement, line striping and sealcoating. The asphalt surface of a parking lot are significant investments, so it makes sense to keep them cleaned and maintained. Developing a comprehensive pavement maintenance plan that includes regular sweeping can help alleviate the unnecessary costs of repaving or repairing asphalt, which often exceeds the cost of regularly scheduled sweeping and other maintenance services.
