Parking Lot and Driveway Sealcoating

Parking lot & driveway sealcoating is a must in our NWI climate

Sun, rain, frost, freezing, thawing, salts, petroleum products and hairline cracks are all parking lot and driveway enemies. Sealcoating is the superhero.

Protecting your parking lot, driveway or roadway from deterioration with a quality asphalt sealant is the key to keeping an attractive looking and structurally sound. It’s the best and most cost-efficient way to avoid expensive repairs due to pavement failures.

Benefits of a regular asphalt sealcoating maintenance plan include:

  • Slows Oxidation: The sun’s UV rays harden and dry out asphalt. This is called oxidation. Asphalt sealcoating protects your pavement by slowing slow down oxidation.
  • Slows Weather Damage: Along with regular asphalt crack repair, asphalt sealcoating reduces water infiltration into the pavement structure. It prevents water and ice from turning hairline cracks into bigger ones.
  • Restores Beauty: Regular asphalt sealcoating restores the rich black finish, making your property stand out. Parking lot striping & pavement marking provide a safe and
orderly environment for your patrons.
  • Resists Gas and Other Chemicals: Asphalt sealcoating helps protect your pavement from harsh chemicals that come from vehicles and the roads.
  • Increases Safety: A well maintained parking lot is free from defects that could cause accidents. Sealcoating is an integral part of the pavement maintenance process.

Boyd Asphalt does it right

Don’t fall for out-of-state scammers that use watered-down sealants. Call professionals who live and work here in NWI. Here are the steps we will take.

  • The area is cleaned of any oil or gas stains. Pressurized air and a steel brush are often used to help remove moisture, vegetation, and debris.
  • We then fill any cracks with professional grade hot rubber which hardens to create a nice seal that expands and contracts with the weather.
  • A professional grade sealcoat is applied when it’s at least 50°F and there is no forecast of rain for 48 hours. We apply the sealant with a brush, squeegee, or sprayer.

  • We take care to edge grass alongside the driveway and protect plantings.

By putting a regular asphalt maintenance plan in place, Boyd Asphalt will help you extend the life of your asphalt pavement 10 to 20 years.
