Q: Why is there a bare spot on my driveway or parking lot?
A: We get this question pretty often and the most common answer is water. Whenever you have a low area that holds water (whether from rain or a sprinkler system) you will most likely experience some premature deterioration of the sealer.
Please contact Mr. Sealcoat if your question is not answered below.
- SEALCOATING NEW PAVEMENT
New parking lots are generally ready for seal coat one year after construction – once curing is complete and the structural soundness of the lot’s surface and base are established.
- LIFE OF FIRST SEAL COAT
A coat of seal coat can last about 2 years. However, various factors – traffic volume, grade of material, quality of the sand and latex – affect the life of the application.
A number of factors determine how often a lot should be resealed. Lots with a lower quality of pavement and/or high traffic volume need to be treated more frequently but, in general, pavement should be resealed every 2 years.
- SPRAY VS. SQUEEGEE
Spray treatments are ideal because they apply the material evenly.
