Get the Best Seal Coating and Crack Filling Services within Budget!

A well maintained property not only adds to the beauty of your neighborhood or shopping district, it also adds to the value of your office building, shopping center, or apartment complex. Good looking properties can fetch higher resale value. This is also true for pavement management plans that include proper maintenance of parking lots, walkways, and roadways. By regularly engaging in asphalt maintenance, you will be able to maintain both the structural integrity and safety of your parking lot or roadway, as well as its beauty.

As a leading asphalt seal coat company, we at Haskell Paving, Inc., undertake all types of pavement management projects that contribute to the beautification of open spaces like parking lots, roadways, sidewalks and similar areas. Since the asphalt of roadways and parking lots is susceptible to deterioration by cracking, we undertake the onerous task of crack filling with a black liquid sealant in order to give the surface a proper makeover. This helps to repair the defects that develop with time, and the surface is made to look new once again. A properly maintained paved surface is easy to take care of, and above all it increases the curb appeal that directly affects the value of the property.

Creating a Barrier

Seal coating is the name of the process that creates a barrier coat on the asphalt surface. The material that is used for reinforcing the corrosion resistant properties of asphalt is known as seal coat. This is a liquid mixture of bituminous products that is applied to asphalt. Since asphalt pavement is exposed to petroleum products like gasoline and automobile oils, and because the filler material is also a petroleum based product, it resists the corrosion that can occur from fuels and oils. This increases the longevity of the surface.

What is Pavement Sealing and Crack Filling?

Asphalt seal coat is used to revitalize the asphalt surface properties and appearance after large cracks of one inch or more have been filled with liquid sealant. Cracks are potentially dangerous for paved pathways, and should be nipped in the bud as soon as possible. Neglecting minor cracks can lead to deeper structural issues that can cause extensive problems to the entire integrity and appearance of your asphalt parking lot or roadway. When moisture penetrates into the cracks and is left unattended, it can cause the pavement to contract and expand during the freeze-thaw cycle that occurs throughout the year. Crack repair is a separate process that has to precede the application of the driveway seal coat.

A Yearly Affair

How often should you get the seal coating done? Normally, for newly paved roadways and parking lots, property owners should wait 12 months before hiring a sealcoat professional to apply crack filler and seal coat. After the initial seal coat application, we recommend getting the job done once every year or two. This will ensure that the paved surface is properly protected from damage that can occur from the environmental exposure and traffic stress.

Filling the Cracks

As a crack filling company, we at Haskell Paving use rubberized crack fillers for filling the cracks before the seal coat is applied. The parking lot is swept and then structural cracks are filled with liquid crack filler. The rubberized filler has special properties that enable it to withstand the lower temperatures in winter thereby preventing further damage to the paved asphalt surface.

Applying the Sealant

Once the cracks are properly sealed, the surface is now ready for application of sealcoat which is used to fortify the asphalt. Sealcoat consists of either coal tar pitch or asphalt cement mixed with inert fillers, water, emulsifying agents, or additives. This process slows oxidation and water penetration by filling and covering surface voids. This reduces exposure to oxygen and UV rays and reduces the depth to which oil or gas can penetrate the pavement. Sealcoating acts as a waterproofing agent, minimizing the rate at which water enters pavement.

What You Gain

Here is a list of gains that you can expect from the process of applying seal coat to asphalt surfaces:

  • The longevity of the pavement is increased.
  • It becomes easy to clean and maintain the paved surface.
  • Beauty is restored which adds more aesthetic value to the property.
  • Surface damage is reduced by preventing water penetration and oxidation.
  • Corrosion, which can occur from spillages of gas and oil on the paved surface by passing automobiles, is prevented.
