Parking Lots


Why sealcoat now?

Parking lots are expensive. Next to HVAC and roofs, they’re the biggest cost (and source of headaches) for property owners and managers. Sealcoating costs pennies per square feet compared to asphalt paving, and helps maintain and extend your pavement usability and viability.
Sealcoating makes for a good-looking lot. Jet-black pavement and crisp lines give off a strong first impression you can be proud of.
Mother Nature is relentless and unforgiving. An application of sealer coats and seals the porous surface of asphalt and prevents water penetration and surface oxidation caused by UV rays.
Traffic and automobiles are relentless and unforgiving, too. Without sealcoat, gasoline, oil, rock salt and other chemicals can eat away at pavement—and your bottom line.
Sealcoating creates smoother, more efficient surfaces. Regular sealer applications keep your pavement surface smooth, which lowers operational costs for cleaning, maintenance, and snow and ice control.
After inspecting your surface, our Pavement Problem Solvers can recommend a solution that best fits your needs.

Parking lot maintenance - Sealcoating

All asphalt eventually has to be replaced, but you can significantly slow down the replacement cycle with a long-term maintenance program that includes sealcoating. Regular applications of sealcoat can extend the life of your asphalt pavement and save you up to 300% in maintenance costs over a 15-year period.If you’ve had a new parking lot installed in the last year or two, a fresh coat of sealcoat is a must. It’s a smart preventive action against deterioration, and it makes older surfaces look new again.Left untreated, your parking lot’s biggest enemies—rain, sun, oil and even oxygen—speed up the aging process and give way to cracks, potholes and eventual failure due to water infiltration. That’s why sealcoating makes sense, from residential driveways to shopping mall parking lots.

Crack Filling

When your parking lot starts to crack, it’s time to take immediate action. If you’re not careful, a single crack left untreated can expand into hundreds fractures that threaten the integrity of your pavement.Cracked asphalt allows for water to penetrate the asphalt and make its way down to the base and sub-base, weakening it and the surface above. Coupled with the freeze-thaw cycle of harsh Chicago winters, those cracks can expand and cause pavement failures that could result in costly resurfacing.Annual crack filling is a simple, cost-effective procedure that saves property managers and owners from expensive repairs later on. Our staff identifies the troubled areas, fully cleans and/or routs the cracks depending on size and placement, and seals them with an emulsion filler that adheres to the pavement and creates a successful barrier against water, oil and chemicals.
