Also Serving Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg, FL
The integrity of your pavement is essential to its quality and longevity. Every payment management plan should feature top of the line sealcoating. A quality sealcoat is made up of either asphalt cement or coal tar pitch combined with water, inert fillers and emulsifying agents. Pavement sealing is implemented in very thin coats yet it functions to guard against threats like gasoline, salt, oil, water and ultraviolet rays.
What a Quality Sealcoating can do for Your Pavement
Pavement that is covered with fresh sealant will appear brand new for much longer than you might anticipate. When clients customers, potential partners and others pull into your freshly coated parking lot, they will undoubtedly feel better about doing business with you. In today’s world, image matters. Do not give the impression that you are unprofessional, lazy or unable to maintain your property. Apply a new sealcoating on your pavement and you’ll portray a positive image of yourself, your property and your business.
Hinders Oxidation and Water Exposure
Sealcoating serves to fill voids along the pavement surface. The result is a decreased susceptibility to UV rays, oxygen and any sort of unsavory liquid that might reach the pavement. Furthermore, sealcoating functions as an excellent means of waterproofing to reduce the amount of water that seeps into the pavement. Surfaces that lack a sealcoating will be penetrated by water and suffer a damaging expansion and contraction of the pavement as temperatures change throughout the year.
Guards Against Oil and Gas Spillage
Consider all of the fluid leaks that drip out of vehicles onto your pavement. Fuel, oil, coolants and other liquids can easily drip out of vehicles, especially fuel tanks that are topped-off. These fluids can compromise the integrity of your pavement. We use sealcoatings that are mixed with special coal tars to prevent any potentially negative impact caused by spills.
Ease of Maintenance
Sealcoats do more than merely coat the surface of the pavement. They also function to fill in the gaps along the surface to prevent voids from expanding. Once your pavement is sealcoated, you will notice that it feels much more even and smooth. This level surface is quite easy to maintain throughout the year. Consider how much easier it will be to remove snow, ice, leaves and other debris from a smooth surface compared to one with bumps. The difference is night and day.
Sealcoating adds a very dark black hue to the pavement. We make it as dark as possible in order to help the surface absorb the sun’s hot rays. As the pavement increases in temperature, it becomes more pliable, helping it endure heavy traffic without divots, voids and gaps.
Guards Against Pressure Washing
Parking lots outside of restaurants and plenty of other businesses typically extend all the way toward the spaces where dumpsters are located. Food-processing machines are commonly pressure washed in these spaces. Sometimes, leftover food accumulates around the dumpster and must be washed away. If the asphalt is not protected with a sealcoating, its integrity can be compromised during the pressure washing process. Pressure washing requires an extremely powerful burst of water and the use of damaging detergents. Don’t let these forces impact the quality of your pavement. A sealcoating is the solution you’ve been looking for.
An Economically Efficient Means of Protection
Sealcoating is undoubtedly the best way to preserve asphalt at an affordable price.
Once your pavement is prepared for application, the sealcoating can be applied with ease. We provide a handy specification sheet to help customers get the job done quickly and correctly.
Sealcoating should only be applied when the temperature is 55 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. Traffic must be kept off the surface upwards of two and a half days after the sealcoating is applied. Additionally, sprinklers or other water sources should not be used in the area until two days have passed.
