At Paved Assets, we take pride in offering comprehensive asphalt maintenance services, and one of the most effective treatments we recommend is asphalt sealcoating. This essential maintenance procedure enhances the durability, appearance, and lifespan of asphalt surfaces. Let’s delve into the numerous benefits of sealcoating, the application process, and the essential steps involved to ensure a high-quality finish.

The Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating

Sealcoating provides a protective layer that shields your asphalt from the damaging effects of UV rays, water, oil spills, and chemical erosion. Here are some key benefits:

  • Extended Lifespan: Sealcoating acts as a barrier, preventing oxidation and weakening from UV rays. By protecting the asphalt binder, it helps the pavement remain flexible and durable, extending its lifespan.
  • Water Resistance: Water is one of the primary culprits in asphalt degradation. Sealcoating creates a watertight surface that prevents water from seeping into cracks and causing further damage, such as potholes and structural issues.
  • Improved Aesthetics: A fresh coat of sealant gives your asphalt a sleek, black finish that enhances the overall appearance of your property. It also makes pavement markings and striping more visible.
  • Cost-Effective Maintenance: Regular sealcoating reduces the need for more extensive and costly repairs down the road. It’s a proactive solution that keeps small issues from escalating into significant problems.

How Sealcoating is Applied

  1. Proper Cleaning of the Lot Before we begin the sealcoating process, it’s crucial to properly clean the asphalt surface. Dirt, debris, and oil stains can prevent the sealant from adhering correctly. At Paved Assets, we use high-powered blowers, sweepers, and pressure washers to ensure the lot is thoroughly cleaned. For oil stains, we apply a special primer to treat the affected areas. This meticulous cleaning process is essential for achieving a durable, long-lasting sealcoat.
  2. Repairing Cracks and Potholes Prior to applying the sealcoat, we address any existing cracks and potholes. Crack filling and pothole repair are necessary steps to ensure the surface is smooth and uniform. Repairing these imperfections beforehand helps the sealcoat perform more effectively, providing a seamless protective layer.
  3. Applying the Sealcoat We use specialized sealcoating machines to apply the sealant evenly across the asphalt surface. The equipment typically consists of large tanks that hold the sealant, spray wands, and squeegees. For larger areas, we employ high-capacity trailer units, while smaller areas or intricate sections may require push-behind units.The sealcoat is usually applied in two coats for optimal protection. The first coat is allowed to dry before the second one is applied. The sealant is spread evenly, ensuring all areas are adequately covered.
  4. Barricading and Blocking Off Areas Sealcoating requires time to cure, and during this period, the area must be kept free of traffic. We barricade and block off the areas being treated to prevent any vehicles or pedestrians from accessing the wet sealcoat. This step is vital to ensure the sealant sets properly and adheres to the asphalt surface.
  5. Coordinating with Clients During the Project Effective communication with our clients is essential throughout the sealcoating process. At Paved Assets, we work closely with our clients to schedule the project at a time that minimizes disruption to their operations. We provide clear instructions on traffic rerouting, alternative parking arrangements, and the estimated time required for the sealcoat to cure.We also ensure that clients are informed about the entire process, expected outcomes, and post-application care. Good coordination helps us deliver a seamless experience, ensuring the satisfaction and convenience of our clients.

Pleased with the professionalism and work repaving the parking area. The marked maps helped with notifying residents dates of repairs. With the inclement weather you were still able to continue working even though it took a bit longer to cure. Thank you for all you do!
