Asphalt requires TLC just like the rest of us, especially here in this extreme climate we have in Texas. If the weight of a trash truck isn't tearing up your parking lot, then just give it a few years and mother nature will take care of the rest.
SEAL COATING Research shows that applying a coal tar emulsion SEALER to the asphalt can actually extend the life of the pavement anywhere from 3-5 years. How? As soon as asphalt is laid it hardens, and with our summer climate peaking 100 degrees with little or no rain, it becomes brittle and weakens over time. Eventually small cracks form which are just enough room for water to penetrate and make its way to the sub base, reducing the overall strength. Seal Coating will fill surface voids, and replenish the asphalt with the essential emulsified oils in which minimize the effect of UV rays as well as the penetration of water. Seal Coating also revitalizes the 'look" of your pavement, some would even say, "It looks new again".
