Sealcoating is a quick and easy way to add curb appeal to your driveway or parking lot, but what does it do exactly? For starters, as a surface protectant, sealer acts as a coating for your asphalt pavement, blocking out the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, preventing moisture penetration from the elements, and helping to prevent oxidation. In addition, a good quality sand-mix sealer fills small cracks in your pavement’s surface. When applied in conjunction with a hot rubberized crack sealing program, the pavement’s natural deterioration rate drops dramatically. If you are at all unsure of how often you should be applying seal coating to the property that you own or manage, you have got to give RAM Pavement a call.
According to Transportation Department studies from five different states, a regular pavement maintenance program can help prevent costly overhaul and repaving expenses. For every $1 spent in pavement maintenance, $10 is saved in replacement costs. And, according to a fifteen year study by the Asphalt Institute, a 40,000 sq. yd. parking lot utilizing a regular program of preventative sealcoating and crack repair saved approximately $45,000 in rehabilitation costs over the course of the study term.
