Why Sealcoating is Needed in the DFW, Texas Area
For both effect and appearance, sealcoating is key to parking lots in Dallas-Fort Worth
Sealcoating is the Number One way to reduce damage to your parking lot, avoid repair costs and reduce the likelihood of a costly repaving job. For businesses in Dallas or Fort Worth, sealcoating should be considered absolutely necessary for a parking lot.
Why is this? Well, it’s simple. Like any other material, asphalt will degrade over time. With the weight of vehicles rolling across it every day, thousands of stamping feet, and the corrosive nature of spilled fuels, it’s easy to see why asphalt will suffer sometimes. Added to this is the harsh cold followed by bright sun, heavy rain and maybe even ice. Of course asphalt will suffer!
As these outside elements take their toll, the integrity of asphalt is broken down. Cracks appear, potholes form and asphalt begins to break up. At this point, the image of your home or business is being damaged and people may even be in danger from trips or falls.
Luckily, there is one way to dramatically slow this process; sealcoating! Elite Asphalt is the DFW area’s top asphalt sealcoating company. Here’s how it can help.
Sealcoating: What it is and Why it Matters
Sealcoating is best friend for those owning an asphalt surface. Whether this is a road, a parking lot or a residential driveway, sealcoating can help. By sealcoating your surface every two to three years, you can extend the lifetime of your asphalt surface, adding potentially decades of service.
Sealcoating adds a layer over your asphalt surface to protect it from outside pressure. Sealcoating can be thought of in the same way varnish offers protection for wood. This is particularly the case for damage inflicted by UV rays. Without protection, UV rays cause oxidation to take place in the chemical compound of the asphalt and aggregate mixture. This can lead to cracking and raveling (the process seen when asphalt appears warped or wavy) which, in time, allow rain to enter. From there, there is a snowball effect and the damage inflict is able to penetrate further into the asphalt base. At this point, it is only a matter of time until repaving is required.
