Triangle Seal Coating
Asphalt degrades over time and consequently needs regular care in order to maintain its worth and to lengthen its useful life. The conditions that lead to asphalt failure of parking lots in North Carolina are: oxidation from sun, water, salt used during the cold season, automotive fluids and damage from traffic. The effects of these variables are weak and bleached asphalt which is likely to produce potholes and cracks.
Though we like to think of roads and parking lots as these indestructible and long-lasting things, they’re just as susceptible to damage as anything else. The most damaging thing to your driveway or parking lot is the usual suspect, mother nature! On average, a parking lot will last you for about 25, maybe 30 years. This may seem like a long time, but the asphalt starts to age as soon as its laid. Eventually, your parking lot will need to be repaired, that’s inevitable.
Does your businesses’ parking lot have a lot of extremely unsightly pot holes or cracks? Not only are these a terrible eye sore, but they give off a bad impression to customers. If you can’t even maintain your parking lot how can you be expected to provide quality service to your customers? Some people truly are immediately turned away by visual things like that, they only want to do business with people that seem to really care.
Nip all of that in the bud and save yourself money in the long run with a good seal coating for your YOUR asphalt! Just one of our Triangle parking lot services.
A new asphalt parking lot has a beautiful, dark black color, but in North Carolina the oxidation process begins immediately which, over time, causes the pavement to slowly turn into light gray color. This oxidation process can by quite intense because it seeps deep into the pavement and the small agents used in the asphalt, such as sand and gravel, becomes loose and eventually taken away by wind and rain. As a result, the pavement area becomes rough and cracked. Sealcoating is the ultimate answer to help prevent oxidation. Here are a few ways it helps:
- Protect the asphalt with quality sealcoating
- Sealcoating helps stop the oxidation process
- Sealcoating helps stretch your investment dollar
- Seal coating forms a solid barrier on the pavement
- Stops harmful UV rays from eating away at the pavement
- Seals out the harmful effects from the elements
Potholes are not a good thing to have in your parking lot, they’re an eye sore and more importantly a safety risk. This holds true for any damage to your parking lot. Potholes can cause injury to driver and car alike, a little pothole is capable of much more damage than it looks like it can do! A pothole can be caused by contraction and expansion of the soil under your parking lot or driveway, due to changes in weather usually. Now, as water seeps down in your potholes, it too will freeze and thaw! Over time this can weaken large areas of your parking lot, eventually causing them to just crumble apart. Areas around the pothole will continue to get weaker and break down – the last thing you want is damage that you can’t see until it’s too late. If pooling water is the issue, it would be worth looking into better drainage rather than resurfacing everything, it could be an easy solution to a potentially horrible issue!
Asphalt Preventative Care – Sealcoating
Sealcoating applied to an asphalt parking area provides an effective barrier or seal between the elements above the sealcoating and the asphalt surface below it. Below the surface the sealcoating stays on the moist side which makes it pliable and as a result, resistant to cracking. The main reason that your asphalt does crack is from torsion and movement, it just doesn’t have the playability to withstand such things. Seal coating will not only refurbish your parking lot, it will make it last much further into the future!
