How Seal Coating Saves You Money
Whether you have a freshly paved parking lot or one that is need of repair, seal coating is one of the best ways to extend the life of your investment and increase curb appeal. Most parking lots have an approximate lifespan of 10-15 years if not sealed or maintained. Once the lot reaches a certain level of deterioration, it will need to be re-paved. In contrast, properly maintained parking lots typically last 20-30 years.
The cost savings associated with seal coating are apparent when compared to the costs of repaving or doing major pavement repairs on a regular basis. For example, if you own a 100’x100’ parking lot and seal coat, crack seal, and line stripe every three years for 30 years, your total cost will be around $20,000.00. On the other hand, repaving just once and doing necessary patching will cost somewhere around $40,000.00. It is also possible that the un-sealed lot would need to be repaved twice in 30 years, which could cost upwards of $60,000.00. Either way, the cost savings from sealing are impressive.
