Asphalt Sealcoating: Extend the Life and Value of Your Pavement

Commercial spaces thrive on reliable infrastructure. Nowhere is this more evident than in the parking lot — most commonly, asphalt pavements. Yet, under the constant pressure of vehicular traffic, harsh weather, and environmental damage, even the most robust asphalt surfaces eventually show signs of wear and tear.

Enter asphalt sealcoating, a cost-effective and vital maintenance solution that rejuvenates, protects, and extends the lifespan of your commercial paving investment.

Asphalt Sealcoating for Commercial Properties

While a freshly sealcoated surface undoubtedly enhances the visual appeal of your property, its true benefits lie far deeper. It impacts the longevity, functionality, and safety of your commercial pavement.


Sealcoating acts as a protective barrier, sealing microscopic cracks and preventing water infiltration. This significantly reduces the risk of extensive cracking, potholes, and pavement deterioration, potentially doubling the lifespan of your asphalt.


A sealed surface resists oil and chemical spills, minimizing staining and ensuring easier cleaning. Additionally, proper sealcoating optimizes drainage, preventing pooling and reducing the risk of hydroplaning, especially during rain or snow.


A rejuvenated asphalt surface boasts improved traction, offering safer walking and driving experiences for employees, customers, and visitors. Sealcoating can also enhance visibility by darkening faded pavement markings, leading to more defined parking spaces and traffic flow patterns.

Property Value

A well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing parking lot contributes positively to the overall impression of your commercial property. Regular sealcoating demonstrates proactive property management and enhances curb appeal, potentially elevating your property’s resale value.

Choosing the Right Type of Sealcoat

With various sealcoat formulations and application methods available, selecting the optimal solution for your commercial needs requires careful consideration. Here’s a breakdown of key factors to guide your decision.

Types of Sealcoating

Sealcoating is available in several materials.

  • Asphalt-Based: The most common and cost-effective option, offering good protection against weather and wear. However, it may require more frequent reapplication.
  • Coal Tar-Based: Provides superior durability and crack-filling properties, but is less environmentally friendly and may be banned in some regions.
  • Acrylic-Based: Faster drying times and better color retention, but typically more expensive and less effective at crack filling.

There are varying safety considerations with each type, as well as application methods.

Methods of Application

Sealcoating is fairly simple but it requires precision and skill. There are two methods:

  • Squeegee Application: Large sealcoating projects often use the squeegee method where the material is poured and then spread with a flat squeegee or mechanical tool.
  • Spray Application: Efficient and cost-effective for large areas but requires careful masking and adherence to weather conditions.
  • Brush Application: Offers greater control and precision for smaller areas or intricate details.

Your paving contractor can inform you of the right type of method for your sealcoating project.

Things to Consider Before Sealcoating

Aside from the formula type and application method, there are a few things to think about before scheduling your sealcoating service.

  • Climate and Traffic Volume: The severity of your climate and volume of traffic will influence the optimal sealcoat type and frequency of application.
  • Budget and Timeline: Asphalt-based sealcoat is the most affordable, while acrylic-based offers faster drying times, potentially impacting your business operations.
  • Environmental Concerns: Opt for environmentally friendly alternatives like acrylic-based sealants or consult Paving Pros about sustainable options.

If any of these factors limit your paving project, talk with a professional paving company to address your options.
