Will Sealcoating Our Parking Lot Save Us Money?

YES, sealcoating will save many thousands of dollars in maintenance and repair costs over the life of the pavement.

Whether you manage a small or large property, your goal is probably to maintain it as well as possible while saving money. Although shelling out the cash for a sealcoating job might seem a bit costly, you might not realize just how much you can save with this essential service.

Repaving a parking lot or other asphalt surface can be costly, and sealcoating is the best way to put it off until it is absolutely necessary. With sealcoating, you can protect your asphalt and restore it to a better condition without having to spend thousands of dollars on a costly repaving job. It has been estimated that you could save over $100,000 in repairs and asphalt overlay costs over a 15 year period for a 30,000-sq.-ft. parking lot, simply by sealcoating your lot every 3 to 5 years (depending on traffic and other factors).

Sealcoating helps preserve your asphalt in many ways. First of all, it will allow you to solve small problems without having to spend too much. If you have minor potholes and cracks in your pavement, you probably know how unappealing they can look and how uneven they can make your paved surface. Ignoring the problem will only cause things to get worse, and continuing to use your parking area with this damage can cause even worse problems. The elements can also do further damage to your potholes and cracks; for example, water that seeps into these imperfections during the winter can freeze, expand and cause cracks and holes to get far worse. Before sealcoating your pavement, however, we will repair any holes and cracks so that you can avoid these issues and enjoy a smoother surface.

Sealcoating also provides a protective barrier against the elements and greatly improves the appearance of your parking area. It will make your parking lot look dark, rich and beautiful again, and the new white lines that will be painted will make it look especially sharp. Therefore, you can enjoy the beauty of an almost-new parking lot for a fraction of the price of repaving, and you can avoid damage and issues later on down the road.
