General Repairs And Asphalt Paving
About this pro
When it comes to protecting your asphalt against deterioration, there is no greater value than a correctly mixed and applied sealcoat. Sealcoating substantially reduces maintenance costs and extends the life of asphalt pavements by as much as 300%. The cost of sealcoating is minor compared with the cost of pavement replacement. The price of asphalt is affected by crude oil prices, which fluctuate when supplies vary. During the Gulf crises, according to manufacturers, asphalt prices in the United States went up 15% to 40%. It is less expensive to sealcoat a parking lot every few years using a coal tar than it is to replace a new lot. Sealcoating slows oxidation and water penetration. It resists ultraviolet rays, gas, and oil spills. It is easier to clean and maintain, while increasing the pavement flexibility. Sealcoating can triple asphalt life expectancy and is cost effective in the long run. The finished black, smooth parking lot will definitely enhance your curb appeal.
