Protect Your Asphalt Paving From Deteriorating With Sealcoating

sealcoating One of the best treatments to use in order to save your asphalt paving from deterioration is sealcoating. Sealcoating is basically applying a bituminous liquid mixture to the asphalt in order to prolong the asphalts life. This is a sure way to protect and maintain your investment. Valley Enterprises uses a commercial-grade sealer with additives defends asphalt which defends against moisture penetration and offers a sure defense against cracks and weakening.

Asphalt binder (commonly referred to as tar) will harden as it’s exposed to oxygen. The result is a brittle surface prone to eventual cracking. These fractures permit moisture and oxygen to infiltrate the asphalt paving and its sub-base, resulting in a vastly weakened pavement with a shortened life. The benefits of sealcoating are numerous in extending the longevity and pleasant appearance of your asphalt paving.

Why Sealcoat?

Asphalt paving is intended to have a certain flexibility, created with asphalt blends and minute aggregate mixes. While flexibility is essential to the function of asphalt, the life of the pavement can be drastically shortened if it is left exposed to the elements and not sealed. Sealcoating is among the very best ways to preserve an asphalt lot, safeguarding your investment, and prolonging the life of your paving.

Sealcoating is the process of applying a fine coating of coal tar pitch or an asphalt blend that is mixed with non-reactive fillers, water, emulsifiers or additives. Doing so not only saves you money in the long run, it also ensures that your customers and clients are greeted with a sleek, well-maintained approach to your building, enhancing your business’ professional “face.”

Only the best quality materials are used by Valley Enterprises, Inc. including a confirmed sealcoating method which exceptionally resists water leaching, oil spills and damage by natural elements. Sealcoated asphalt paving lasts thirty to fifty percent longer than paving left unsealed. This represents a solid money savings in the long run.

Sealcoating Benefits

Asphalt is considered a petroleum based product so its important to note that other petroleum based products might react with the surface inducing gasoline and vehicle oil from an engine. Our sealcoating process puts a barrier in between those two materials which helps prolong the life of the asphalt. Keep in mind, a sealcoat is not a crack filling agent as this must be done prior to the sealcoat being applied. Sealcoating can greatly reduce the friction of the asphalt so its important to factor that in if you are looking for anti skid capabilities.

  • Curb appeal of your entire property is greatly enhanced with quality sealcoating.
  • Extending the longevity and appearance of your parking lot.
  • Normally, your clientele will see the lot before the rest of your facilities. Sealcoating helps create a good first impression by improving the overall look of your business.
  • Sealcoating makes maintaining your asphalt lot easy.
  • Sealcoating provides a silky, even surface, which makes pavement cleaning much easier.
  • Sealcoating is a cost saver.

A business and its parking lot(s) are ADA compliant when suitable parking spaces, signs and other elements of compliance are in place to provide appropriate access for people with disabilities, according to ADA Accessibility Guidelines. A full list of ADA guidelines can be found on the ADA’s website.
