In our 47 years of building great parking lots and driveways throughout the Southern Indiana and Louisville area, we’ve learned that proper asphalt maintenance is the key to maximizing pavement life. Sealcoating your asphalt helps extend the life of your asphalt pavement, it helps resist the harmful weather elements, and it is the most cost-effective solution to sustaining the investment of your property.
Sealcoating prevents asphalt from being softened by gas or oil drippings, oxidation from the suns UV rays, and water/salt penetration. Failure to provide proper maintenance would drastically reduce the life of your parking lot or driveway. The longer your asphalt is exposed to the elements, the faster it deteriorates. Before you know it, what was once a solid, flat surface becomes a cracked, pitted mess that’s ugly, unsafe and costly to repair.
Sealcoating asphalt regularly is essential to protecting it against its natural enemies because it does what its name suggests — it seals and coats your asphalt against the elements, keeping it together for longer.
Proper Sealcoating Recommendations
* We recommended sealcoating your parking lot the first year after it was installed and every 4 – 5 years after. Proper maintenance should allow for a good 15-20 years of life out of your asphalt paving.
* We recommend you sealcoat your driveway 6 – 12 months after it is installed and every 3-4 years after that.
After we build a great parking lot or driveway for your property, we want it to look its best for years and decades to come. The Libs Paving family would like to thank you for considering us for your asphalt maintenance needs and we look forward to serving you!
We live in an area where weather plays a major role in how cracks in your parking lot and driveway react. Wide ranging temperature fluctuations in our region cause stress on asphalt, often triggering cracks to form. Along with sealcoating, crack filling is essential to properly maintain and extend the life of your asphalt pavement. Cracks are difficult to avoid, and over time, are likely to appear in every parking lot or driveway. However, the sooner they are sealed, the less chance they have to do real damage to your asphalt. The experienced professionals at Libs Paving will seal the cracks with a rubberized sealant to prevent water and other debris from entering the aggregate base layer.
Asphalt crack filling and sealing is an important step to take for the maintenance of your asphalt surface because it helps to prevent larger maintenance projects down the road. Done properly and frequently, asphalt crack filling and sealing can easily extend the life of your asphalt.
