Commercial Strata Lot Sealcoating to Preserve Paved Surfaces
Oxidization due to rain, damage from snow, sun and UV exposure, freeze-thaw cycles in the winter; all of these natural processes contribute significantly to the deteriorating condition of your asphalt parking lot. Exposure to the elements will dry out the binders present in the asphalt surface, causing them to flake away, chip and expose the next layers of binders. The process will continue until the surface is so badly damaged that it must be replaced. Commercial strata lot sealcoating is the most effective way to protect the asphalt paving of your parking lot and could possibly save you thousands on the cost to replace the surface in the future.
Benefits of Sealcoating for Your Burnaby Parking Lot
If you have been putting off sealcoating for your asphalt surface as an unnecessary expense, now is the time to reconsider. With a proper sealcoat, your parking lot paving will benefit in many ways, including:
- Slowing the oxidation process. Asphalt does not have a natural resistance to UV rays. Therefore, frequent exposure to the sun’s rays will inevitably lead to deterioration due to oxidation. Oxidation naturally breaks down asphalt binders and speeds the aging process of the paved surface. Taking steps to slow down or stop this oxidation is critical if you want to avoid a costly replacement that drives up your commercial property maintenance costs.
- Aid in proper maintenance. Your asphalt surface requires regular maintenance to prevent premature deterioration. Not only should you clean it regularly (monthly at least), but you should also sealcoat the surface of your parking lot once every three to five years. Sealcoating, combined with other preventative maintenance, will dramatically increase the lifespan of your business parking lot.
- Improving the appearance of your parking lot. Your parking lot serves to deliver a first impression of your business. When you have multiple cracks or potholes in the paving, it reflects negatively on your overall business image. The situation is similar to how passengers on an aircraft may think poorly of the airline if the seating upholstery has tears and frayed fabric! Sealcoating instantly improves the appearance of your asphalt surface, which is why many companies even opt to seal their paving annually. It is worth the investment.
