A large part of your property, your parking lot, schoolyard, or driveway represents a significant financial investment. It sets the look and provides a first impression to visitors. Periodic sealcoating helps maintain its value and will beautify your establishment while protecting your investment from damaging, harmful effects.
Natural elements, including moisture and ultraviolet oxidation, as well as contaminants from man-made elements such as fuel, oil, anti-freeze, and salts, break down the oils and cohesive properties in asphalt. This can cause cracks halfway into the surface in as little as five years. Interestingly, water is the most damaging agent to asphalt. Small cracks act as miniature storm drains from sprinkler run-off or after rainfall causing raveling between the asphalt over time. Larger cracks and potholes can appear within the base in as early as 8 to 10 years unless precautions are taken.
An OverKote application protects your investment offering the same benefits as sun block on your skin or a good varnish on beautiful wood. Sealcoating with OverKote protects your asphalt, extending the life of your investment and saving you money in the long run.
In fact in a study from BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) it can be shown that over 20 years, a parking lot not properly maintained will have its useful life degraded 18%; eroding to the point that replacement is necessary. The cost to replace a lot (100,000 sq ft) can average in excess of $300,000, while proper maintenance through sealcoating every three years will have a total 20-year cost of only $60,000. That's only $3,000/yr in preventative maintenance costs.
