Ever wonder how we restore parking lots to their former glory? Our parking lot sealcoating method at Elizabeth Paving may not only improve the appearance of your worn-out, old pavement, but it can also shield it against future wear and tear as well as harmful natural elements (including hail, sleet, UV rays, etc.). Check out our expert procedure to see what to anticipate from a parking lot sealcoating:
A parking lot’s pavement needs to be clear of dirt and debris before it can be sealed. When we arrive at your place of business, the first thing we’ll check is the pavement. If we discover any cracks or holes, we’ll clean them out after removing any plant that may be growing there. To prepare the surface, we will also remove any lingering debris or buildup (such as oil).
After those procedures are finished, we’ll clean your entire paved area by power-washing it and sweeping it with steel brushes to ensure that all of the dirt is gone from the cracks.
After a thorough cleaning, any cracks or gaps will be sealed with asphalt to prevent further deterioration of your pavement. Next, we’ll tackle the sealcoating. We apply a premium sealant that is a blend of epoxy fortifier and coal tar emulsion. These components work together to provide a solid, durable seal that gives your pavement a rich, lovely appearance.
After we’re done, we’ll barricade the entrances to your parking lot to make sure nobody drives or walks on your freshly sealed surface. The sealer typically needs 24 to 48 hours to cure. You can resume driving on it after that. We would be pleased to help you as well if you needed a new layer of parking lot lines. Just inform us, and we’ll draw clear, strong lines to divide off your parking area.
