Things to know about Sealcoating

When it comes to protecting driveways and parking lots, Florida Sealcoating LLC in Orlando has a team of experienced and knowledgeable professionals ready to assist you with all your sealcoating needs in the Orlando area and throughout Florida. Sealcoating is a protective barrier that is applied over the asphalt. It is also an effective way to help you avoid making costly repairs later on. Think of it as a “sun block” for your pavement.

Once you’ve had your paved area in place for approximately 90 days, you may want to consider sealcoating it in order to protect it from elements that are sure to deteriorate the surface. Florida Sealcoating LLC in Orlando, recommends this time frame to ensure the surface is fully cured before sealcoating can be applied. Sealcoating will act as a protective barrier, shielding the pavement from exposure to UV rays, water, gas, oil, salt and chemicals. All these elements can penetrate the pavement and cause it to fade or break down over time. Oxidation from UV rays can cause unsightly and costly damage. Sealcoating is the most efficient way to avoid water, sun damage, other elements and chemicals from penetrating into the asphalt and causing deterioration and break down in the future.

In addition to the protective benefits sealcoating provides, it also restores the pavement to a fresh beautiful look. Sealcoated pavements have a rich charcoal color with a clean appearance that greatly improves the overall look of the pavement. Stains such as oil spills don’t stand out as much which keeps the surface looking clean and well maintained. This makes the area look more attractive to customers and visitors. Florida Sealcoating LLC is an Orlando based company that provides sealcoating services throughout Florida to assist you in protecting your investment.

Why Should I Sealcoat My Asphalt?

Your parking lot is a significant investment in your property. It says a lot about you as a company and is the first thing your customers notice when they consider buying from your business or leasing space. The condition and maintenance of your asphalt pavement is vitally important to the way you impress customers as a business.

Benefits of Regular Sealcoating with Coal Tar Emulsion (CTE)

In order for Florida Sealcoating, LLC, to maximize our asphalt paving and maintaining services, it is very important to understand how your parking area works. For example, a small parking lot with closely-set parking spaces may receive more wear and tear due to vehicles having to turn the wheels while in a stationary position in a small space. Parking lots with a one-way entrance and one-way exit may also receive more wear and tear due to the constant flow of one-way traffic.

Sealcoating with a spray-on Coal Tar Emulsion (CTE) is a preventative measure that will keep your parking lot, sidewalks, and driveways looking like new and make them resistant to all the harmful effects of gas leaks, water damage and wind erosion. Implementing a regular sealcoating maintenance program can double the life of your asphalt and reduce the overall costs of maintaining a parking lot by up to 60%.
