Investing in a proper design for your landscape has immense benefits to you as the property owner. First, of course, is the fact that you make your backyard or outdoors space more functional and attractive. Patios, walkways, driveways, parking lots and pool decks are some of the crucial landscaping elements that many worthy properties boast of.
Asphalt is widely used as the main material in outdoors paving. Asphalt offers many perks when used in driveways and parking lots; among them being its relative durability. All Seasons Paving and Masonry uses a professional asphalt installation process which gives a durability period of up to 50 years.
While the contractor you choose to handle such constructions has a big influence on the resultant quality of the job, there are some approaches that ought to be used to assure you of durability of the parking lot or driveway. Sealing of an asphalt surface is a crucial aspect that ought not to be ignored by any worthy contractor. This sealing may usually take the form of adding an emulsifier to the aggregate before it is installed to the surface. In many cases though, the sealant is applied on top of the asphalt layer.
In many climates, the harsh weather makes it easy for unsealed asphalt driveways and parking lots to start cracking away. In cold climates, the cracking up is sort of hastened and the driveway may not last as long as it should. Long Island Sealcoating is therefore important to keep you from having to spend lots of cash in impromptu repairs. A Long Island driveway sealer will help make an asphalt paving much more resistant to the action of gasoline. Usually, the sealants used to achieve the sealcoating contain polymers. Polymers offer an advantage when it comes to protecting the asphalt parking lot from the harsh effects of the sun’s rays.
It is usually advisable to apply the sealant one year after the installation of the asphalt. The sealant contains oils which are crucial in maintaining the malleability of the driveway or parking lot. When the oils are depleted, the driveway may once again be susceptible to heat and water impacts.
At the same time, the professionals at All Seasons Paving and Masonry appreciate the importance of not applying a new sealant coat before the previous one is proven to be worn out. When the sealant gets greyish in color, it usually is a sign of oxidation and a new coat of sealing is necessary.
Of course, aside from the fact that Long Island Sealcoating gives appropriate protection to the driveway or parking lot, it also adds an element of aesthetics. You can bring much beauty to your property. The application of a coat over the driveway can be strategically used to create a finish that complements the compound and all its features.
All Seasons Paving and Masonry offers strategic Long Island Sealcoating to save you from having to incur costs of repairing the driveway or parking lot before its time is up.
