Parking Lot Seal Coating or Driveway Seal Coating is the act of placing a liquid emulsion called sealant over an asphalt base. It is typically applied over clean asphalt with a spray application and/or rubber squeegees, depending on your lot layout and size, to seal and protect the asphalt surface of your lot.
The use of curbs and gutters protects the edge of the asphalt from damage due to vehicle loads. Vehicles driving and/or parking to close to the edge of an asphalt driveway will cause the edges to buckle under the weight.
The average life of concrete sidewalks is 20 to 40 years, but failure can occur as early as one to five years after construction. Many of the problems are the result of lack of attention to detail during the design and installation. Four key sidewalk attributes are: safety, comfort, appearance, and life-cycle cost performance.
Badly deteriorated or damaged areas of asphalt require complete removal and replacement for an effective repair. In many cases the subgrade below the asphalt needs to be stabilized to allow for a proper asphalt repair.
Common small surface distresses, especially cracks and deterioration around joints can, if not treated, cause problems that can eventually require more costly repairs. Crack sealing is the first line of defense in protecting Colorado's asphalt surfaces.
Infrared repairs are superior to the traditional methods of saw cut remove and replace in many circumstances because the asphalt is heated and bonds the asphalt cement and stones together.
Striping and marking is the finishing touch to a beautifully designed and installed asphalt parking lot. Whether it is a new parking lot, a fresh asphalt overlay or newly applied seal coat, the bright colors of the striping and marking on the rich black surface is the "icing on the cake."
New installation for new parking lots can be completed at varied depth to plans and specifications. An asphalt overlay involves paving a new layer of asphalt over the top of existing asphalt or concrete pavement.
