How Sealcoating Protects Your Parking Lot

Sealcoating with Polytar Keeping your parking lot in good condition is one of your primary duties as a property owner. As a leading provider of sealcoating services in Ontario, we recommend that business owners set aside part of their maintenance budget every year for sealcoating.

What is sealcoating? It involves putting a sealing substance on a paved surface, such as a driveway, to protect it from wear-and-tear.

One of the advantages of sealcoating, particularly with Polytar, is that it will extend the life of your driveway and cut down on your maintenance costs considerably. This is especially important considering that weather conditions in Southern Ontario can change on a seemingly daily basis. In addition, sealcoating also saves your business money on maintenance costs.

The asphalt that is found on your driveway is actually just the top, or “roof,” of graded stone aggregates of differing depths. These aggregates carry the load of both vehicle and pedestrian traffic. If your lot has a lot of heavy traffic, such as trucks, sealcoating is an excellent way to maintain its strength.

Southern Ontario has already experienced its first snowfall of the year, as well as frigid temperatures. Unfortunately, the salt and chemicals used for snow and ice removal can have an adverse effect on asphalt, making sealcoating even more necessary. Proper sealcoating services will use materials that are designed to stand up to the extreme cold, snow, and ice that we experience in Ontario, especially over the last few years. This winter is shaping up to be a repeat of the prior winter, so you need to know your parking lot is protected.

If asphalt is damaged, it can crack, which causes water seepage and further damage to the deeper layers, leading to the need for more extensive repairs. Having your parking lot treated with Polytar will prevent this.

Here is a summary of just a few of the ways our sealcoating services protect your property:

Cost-Efficient

Put simply, sealcoating will save you from having to perform more costly repairs in the future. If water damage occurs, depending on the severity, you may need to have your parking lot completely reconstructed. Regular sealcoating prevents this.

Cuts Down on Maintenance Costs

As was mentioned earlier, having your parking lot sealcoated can cut down on maintenance costs considerably, as Polytar provides a protective barrier against weather and traffic.

Extends the Life of Your Parking Lot and Driveway

A single application of sealcoating can extend the life of your parking lot by seven to 10 years, even more with multiple applications.

Revitalizes the Look of Your Driveway and Parking Lot
