Sealcoating Asphalt in Clearwater is a necessity if you’re going to maintain your asphalt and prevent having to replace the asphalt parking lot. The Sunshine State may be great for tourism but it’s hard on parking lots.
Florida asphalt doesn’t have the frost freeze cycles to deal with like the northern states but the relentless sun beating down on asphalt all year long, requires that asphalt is sealcoated on a regular basis as well as routine repairs and maintenance.
Parking lots get extraordinary loads put on them and cars and heavy trucks are constantly twisting and turning as they maneuver through the parking lot. The next problem is fuel and chemical spills that eat away at the surface of the asphalt, which exposes the sub-base and causes erosion.
Sealcoating is the most important part of any parking lot maintenance program. Sealing the asphalt will add years to the life of any Asphalt parking lot and no-one does it better than Florida Paveworks. We’ll come out and assess your asphalt parking, lot to determine the steps that must be completed before the sealcoating can be done.
We’ll want to make sure your parking lot drainage is positive and your parking lot is not holding water, which is one of the most destructive problems you can have with asphalt surfaces.
We’ll check for cracks in the asphalt which must be repaired before the asphalt can be sealcoated. We’ll inspect for areas of oil and other chemical spills and make sure we prep the areas so the asphalt sealer bonds to them.
The level of those three factors can dramatically increase or decrease the quality of the sealcoating application and performance.
New asphalt sealcoating require adequate time cure time for surface oils to dissolve. We always recommend 6 to12 months for curing before the new asphalt can be sealed..
Old asphalt parking lots will always require patching and crack repair. Depending on the age and surface condition of the old the asphalt, it may need to be primed before it can be sealed.
We always begin by cleaning the surface of the asphalt, to remove loose aggregate, dirt and gravel, with pressure washers, steel bristle brooms.
The next step will be prepping the Asphalt Surface which involves crack sealing, oil spot priming, and other special treatments as they’re necessary, after which the sealcoating material can be applied.
Asphalt sealcoating products will be applied by hand, with squeegees and brushes, or by machine; whatever is the most effective method depends on the area to be covered, and we always apply two coats for added protection and durability to protect against our harsh weather conditions. .
