Seal coating is a great way to improve the appearance of your asphalt. It makes it look fresh and new and will make the lines on your parking lot to show up clearer. Because seal coating materials are non-porous, they are extremely effective at deflecting debris and liquids, helping rain to wash away dirt naturally.
Asphalt vs. Concrete
Although both materials are durable and perform well in the rain and cold, asphalt is known for melting snow faster because of its dark color, which is a great benefit in the frigid Colorado winters. Asphalt is inexpensive to install, and with proper resealing every few years, can last between ten and thirty years.
If water is able to seep into cracks in asphalt surfaces, it can cause it to expand when the temperature changes. By seal coating your asphalt and filling cracks, you will improve its durability and prevent the cracks from spreading. Asphalt driveway and parking lot sealers and fillers will protect the surface from signs of aging due to the repeated heating and cooling from the sun and other weather elements.
