After last week, you surely know about all the reasons to make sure your parking lot is in great shape for the sake of you and your customers. (If you missed out on last week, you can find that post here.) Part of that important maintenance, once potholes and cracks are all filled up, is to seal the deal with sealcoating. Read on to learn how asphalt sealcoating can be crucial in finding savings for business owners everywhere.
The Value of Beauty
Let’s start a little bit close to where we left off last week. At the bottom line, asphalt sealcoating keeps your parking lot looking its best for longer. Not only does it work to prevent damage and deterioration, but it also creates a brand new, sleek, shiny, black surface. When your parking lot looks its best, you’re showing customers that you’re a business that not only cares about them, but also cares about its outward image. These combine to portray a trustworthy image, and one that they’ll feel good about giving their money to. Not technically “savings,” per se, but hey, increased profits don’t sound too shabby either.
Alright, here are some savings. When you invest in asphalt sealcoating, you’re investing in the longevity of your pavement. Parking lots and driveways alike, with sealcoating, you’re protecting the asphalt surface from wear and tear, chemicals (like gasoline and motor oil), and the elements, to name a few. This decreased chance of damage means that you won’t be continuously shelling out money to guys like us to keep coming back and patching problem spots.
Asphalt sealcating is recommended about once every four years. If you stick to a schedule, you’ll notice that regular sealcoating is much more cost effective than regular repairs. Industry experts estimate that you can save over $200,000 on asphalt repairs over the course of 12 years simply by sealcoating as often as you should.
