Seal coating provides your asphalt pavement surface with two critical benefits:
1. It extends the life of your pavement by protecting it from elements that destroy its structural integrity, thus lowering the lifetime costs of the parking lot areas.
2. It enhances the image and look of your parking lot area, which appeals to your customers.
Why choose parking area maintenance, a full service asphalt paving and maintenance contractor, as your seal coating contractor?
1. Peace of mind.

There are various procedures performed in the industry to perform repairs to damaged asphalt. The most permanent type is called R & R – remove and replace. It means to saw cut or jackhammer the asphalt in distressed areas and haul away, recompact the subbase and restore to original condition by replacing with new hot mix asphalt and compact. Patches are appreciated for repair such areas and distresses as alligator cracking, potholes, utility cuts, and various other failures.
In more severe cases of asphalt failure, a long term and cost-effective solution is to resurface the asphalt pavement (also referred to as an overlay). If you notice large sections of alligatored areas (interconnecting cracks forming a series of blocks resembling an alligator's skin), it is a good idea to have your pavement resurfaced.
