Asphalt Sealcoating

Commercial Asphalt Parking Lot SealCoating

What Is Sealcoating?

Sealcoating acts as a shield, safeguarding asphalt surfaces against harm triggered by oxidation, infiltration of water, and external elements that accelerate the deterioration process. Properly maintained sealcoating can significantly prolong the life of asphalt pavement and protect it from environmental factors, reducing the need for costly repairs.

How Frequently Is Sealcoating Required?

Three key factors determine how often your pavement needs sealcoating services.

Reactive vs. Proactive Maintenance

Reactive Maintenance

Reactive maintenance is cheaper upfront but more expensive long-term. Here’s why reactive maintenance falls short of preventative maintenance.

Preventative Maintenance

Since preventative maintenance prevents pavement problems from happening in the first place, it helps you cut costs and allocate your time toward more important issues. Here’s why preventative maintenance is the recommended choice for all our customers.

The Process

Sealcoating is a protective surface treatment applied to asphalt pavements to extend their lifespan and protect them from damage caused by UV rays, water, chemicals, and general wear and tear. The sealcoat application process typically involves the following steps:

Number 1 Icon


We remove any debris, dirt, or vegetation from the surface. We clean the pavement thoroughly to ensure proper adhesion of the sealcoat. We also fill and repair any cracks, potholes, or damaged areas in the pavement. It’s essential to address these issues before sealcoating to prevent moisture from penetrating the substructure.

Edge and Tape

We use tape or other masking materials to protect any adjacent surfaces or areas that should not be coated, like concrete curbs or adjoining structures.

Apply the Sealcoat

The sealcoat is typically a coal-tar-based or asphalt-based emulsion that’s mixed before application. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the correct mix ratio. Sealcoat can be applied using a spray system or by squeegeeing it onto the pavement. The right method depends on the size and type of the area being sealcoated.

Coat Application

We apply an even, uniform coat of sealant across the entire surface, ensuring there are no gaps or uneven areas. The thickness of the sealcoat layer should be in accordance with manufacturer recommendations. It typically ranges from 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch.

Dry and Cure

We allow the sealcoat to dry and cure for a specified period, which can vary depending on the ambient temperature and humidity. It may take 12 to 36 hours for the sealcoat to fully cure.

Striping and Markings

After the sealcoat has cured, we reapply any lane markings, parking stall lines, and other pavement markings as needed.
