Slurry seal pavement surface treatment is typically applied to existing asphalt surfaces that have incurred natural wear and tear or various damages like cracking over time. Professional asphalt contractors throughout Toronto and the GTA rely on slurry seal surface treatment for a broad range of asphalt repair projects including airport runways, commercial parking lots, residential properties, as well as major and minor roadways.
What Is Slurry Seal?
In Ontario, there are a number of external elements including natural wear and tear, fluctuating weather conditions, changing temperatures, and constant exposure to UV rays that are detrimental to your asphalt pavement. Slurry seal pavement surface treatment is the natural solution to these problems.
Not only does slurry seal protect your pavement from damages caused by these unavoidable external elements, but it can also save you a lot of money in the long run and extend the lifespan of your asphalt. Slurry seal is a mixture of asphalt emulsion, aggregate (which is composed of miniscule crushed rock), binders, and water. The mixture itself has a “slurry” type of consistency and the “seal” comes from the fact that it literally seals your asphalt pavement and creates a protective barrier after damages are repaired.
What Are the Benefits of Slurry Seal?
Slurry seal is an industry-standard used product because it has many practical, financial, and structural benefits.
Slurry Seal Prevents Major Damages
Since it acts as a protective layer, slurry seal prevents major and potentially cost-prohibitive damages from scourging your asphalt parking lot or driveway.
Slurry Seal Is Economical
Slurry seal is also extremely cost-effective. With proper care and regular maintenance including applications every 2-3 years, you can save a lot of money in what would otherwise amount to very costly asphalt repairs.
Slurry Seal Improves and Maintains Aesthetic Value
A commercial parking lot that’s littered with cracks, potholes, and large chunks of displaced asphalt isn’t just displeasing to the eye, it can deter potential customers from wanting to enter into your parking lot, much less your store. After all, the condition of the exterior of your store is a reflection of how well you take care of your business.
Maintaining and cleaning up your parking lot on a regular basis shows customers that you care about your business and their safety when they’re on your property. In turn, this can also help improve the aesthetic value of your property, which could also boost your business prospects.
Slurry Seal Provides All-Weather Protection
Another advantage of applying slurry seal is that it protects the underlying pavement structure from all kinds of potentially destructive weather conditions that Ontario experiences. Winter weather can be particularly damaging with all of the snow, sleet, and ice formations. Slurry seal provides the perfect protective layer between these elements and your asphalt parking lot.
