How Should I Prepare for a Sealcoating Job?

Preparing for a sealcoating job will require you to follow some specific guidelines. Because you will surely want the project to be completed without any parking-lot-sealcoating-300x236outstanding issues, you should follow the tips given here. With your assistance, we can complete the job quickly and efficiently. Your parking lot will remain in excellent condition through the months and years ahead.

Turn Off Your Sprinklers

Irrigation systems will have to be turned off on the morning that the project is scheduled to take place. The coating materials will not work on wet pavement. Sprinklers that are on timers should be shut off the night before. After the work has been completed, a simple flick of the switch will reactivate them.

Pay Attention to the Weather

The weather will need to be cooperative as well. If there is any chance of rain on the targeted work day, we will have to reschedule for another time. If you do not hear from us in the hours after the cancellation, you can give us a call. We’ll be able to settle on an appointment date that is amenable to both parties.

Empty the Parking Lot Beforehand

It is essential that the entire parking lot be cleared of vehicles beforehand. If there are cars or trucks remaining in the lot, we will have to work around them. When certain areas of the lot are not sealed, they will be vulnerable to cracks and potholes in the weeks ahead.

Keep the Lot Clear in the Aftermath

For the asphalt to be properly sealed, both foot traffic and vehicular traffic will have to be kept off the lot for 24 hours. Once the appropriate amount of time has passed, you can reopen the lot. By informing customers ahead of time, you can safely guard against any confusion.
