About the Sealcoating Process

If you own a business with an asphalt parking lot, you should consider the advantage of calling a professional to apply sealcoating. While asphalt is known for its durability, protecting your pavement with seal coating helps you get the most out of your investment. At Peter J. Caruso & Sons, Inc., we provide asphalt sealer in Pittsburgh, PA, and the surrounding areas. Besides prolonging the life of your pavement, sealcoating:

  • Prevents Cracking, Fading, and Potholes
  • Reduces Repair Costs over Time
  • Enhances the Appearance of Your Pavement
  • Prevents Water Penetration
  • Protects against U.V. Rays, Oil, Chemicals, and Oxidation

Our experienced team takes a methodical approach to sealcoating to ensure optimal results. Typically, our process involves:

Assessing Your Pavement – We check for any damage that may require repair before we apply sealer.

Performing Necessary Repairs – If we find potholes or cracks, we fill them so that you have an even, smooth surface.

Cleaning the Pavement – We brush and power wash the surface to remove all dirt, oil, and debris so the sealer can bond properly.

Applying the Sealcoating – For first-time sealcoating, we usually apply two coats; if this is maintenance work, you may only need one.

New pavements probably won’t need sealcoating for a year or two. After the first application of sealer, reapplying every two to three years will ensure the maximum lifespan for your parking lot. Our company is happy to take your call if you’d like to learn more about sealcoating or request service.
