Your parking lot has probably seen better days, showing concerning wear and tear like cracks and faded stripes. The solution? Professional sealcoating and striping!

Sealcoating is the process of refreshing the asphalt topcoat of a parking lot or road. Asphalt pavement is made up of gravel, sand, and asphalt, an oily and sticky solution that holds the pavement together. Striping is the method of putting necessary stripes on parking lot surfaces to indicate parking spaces, driving directions, and lanes.

As weather and wear happen over time, parking lots dry up, crack, and fade. In the content below, we discuss five benefits of seeking professional parking lot sealcoating and striping services.

1. Improve Aesthetic Appeal

Aesthetic appeal is important for every business, building, and parking lot. If your exterior space appears neglected, worn out, or even unsafe, customers could lose interest in visiting your establishment. Removing debris, filling potholes, and repainting worn out stripes will attract more customers into your business.

2. Increase Patron Safety

Assess your parking lot in its current state. Does it contain many potholes or cracks? Do you notice any heavily faded stripes? If so, know that you are putting your business, employees, and customers at risk with each passing day.

Although driving and walking on a broken-up lot increases the risk for danger or injury, any patrons with disabilities or handicaps are at a much higher risk of falling if their cane, walker, or wheelchair cannot function smoothly on your ground. Therefore, you must ensure that handicap parking spots are clearly outlined and fully visible.

If people cannot tell where your parking space lines are, you increase their risk of getting into fender benders with other visitors. In addition to the safety hazards created due to your unkept lot, failing to maintain your parking lot could also create a slew of legal issues.

3. Easier to Clean

With a fresh and smooth parking lot, cleaning and maintaining the space is much easier. As opposed to maneuvering around large potholes or finding stuck debris between cracks, imagine efficiently sweeping away debris, leaves and branches, or plowing snow. A maintained parking lot makes all the difference.

4. Extend Your Parking Lot’s Lifespan

A sealed parking lot reduces the risk of long-term damages as the sealant prevents weather and water damage to your parking lot. With regular, professional sealcoating, the lifespan of your parking lots drastically increases. Under the assumption that someone correctly performed your initial sealcoat installation, a simple sealcoating and striping every few years helps maintain the integrity of the original asphalt. Therefore, maintaining your lot can result in its lifespan of 20-30 years before needing a full replacement.

5. Increase Property Value

A beautiful lot with pristine sealcoating and striping instantly increases your property value. If planning to sell or rent out your property, one simple sealcoating and striping application shows a potential buyer or renter that you took care of the property. As a result, they will view your lot as “move-in ready.”
