If your parking lot looks old and worn, you probably wish that you could restore it to the way that it looked when it was first paved. This can be incredibly expensive. The best way to give your lot a like-new leaving appearance, while greatly extending its service life, is sealcoating, crack sealing and line striping. One thing that you might be wondering is if your parking lot will look new after this process, and the answer is yes and no. Regardless, you are sure to be pleased with the end result.
The first step in repairing and maintaining your parking lot is to seal any cracks and patch any holes. After these repairs have been made, your parking lot’s lifespan will be greatly extended by sealing out water and chemicals. The surface will also be much smoother and safer to drive and walk on. However, you will be able to notice the areas that have been patched and repaired at first due to the difference in color between the old and new pavement.
Sealcoating is the next step in repairing and preserving your parking lot. After the pavement has been sealed, the entire parking lot will have a beautiful, rich black hue. This will not only help blend and mask the differences between your old pavement and new repairs, but it will also make your parking lot look fresh and well-maintained. Parking lots that are sealed every two to three years have a much longer service life – sometimes even double.
Lastly, new lines will be painted in your parking lot. These lines will stand out beautifully against the newly sealed surface and will help cover the old preexisting lines. Fresh parking lot lines will also increase the visibility of your lots directives and make your property a safer place for both drivers and pedestrians. Although your parking lot might not look like it was newly paved after this process, it will look close to new again and will look beautifully maintained.
