Asphalt Seal Coating

As business owners, we take pride in our work just like you. We both invest time and capital to build our brand and even more to preserve their looks and integrity. Your asphalt driveway is no different.  It is but an extension of your business and requires the same care, the same attention you would give any other. Part of that means sealing the cracks and maintaining the appearance. Your grounds deserve our attention and care. We have dedicated years to perfecting the seal-coating process. Asphalt installation and maintenance is what we do best.

Asphalt deteriorates through time and with it your driveway. Taking care of your driveway means knowing when to seal-coat or repave. Seal-coating extends the life of asphalt pavement and therefore preserves your investment. Its primary purpose is to give you more years and usage of  your existing pavement by slowing its deterioration. Also important to consider is the capital investment needed. The amount of money saved vs installing new asphalt can be tremendous.

Asphalt Repair

Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said “the only thing that is constant is change.” Asphalt pavement deteriorates with time. It is no exception. It breaks down, cracks and ages. Of course traffic, exposure to the sun (ultraviolet rays,) weather changes and fluctuations in temperature certainly don’t help, but we can.  When your asphalt is in need of repair, Seal the Way can handle the job.

The damage sustained by asphalt pavements will get worse if no preventive maintenance is  made. One day you see a small crack on your driveway, and soon ugly potholes are all over the place.

Repairing the minor defects regularly on your asphalt pavement costs far less than installing new pavement. The earlier you start addressing asphalt problems the less money you will spend in the long run. It also shows you care about your business and that you aim to put your best foot forward when clients arrive. So when is the right time to perform maintenance on distressed pavements?

Most people say “once you see the pavement is in poor condition.” While true to an extent, that is not, however, the best answer. The optimal time to repair asphalt is while it is still in fair to good condition, not when already in poor condition.  Fixing a relatively good driveway periodically will cost far less than restoring and rehabilitating a badly-damaged one. A new asphalt parking lot typically costs 20x the amount of an average maintenance call in Schererville.

Asphalt Crack Filling:

If you want to extend the life of your asphalt driveway or parking lot, there is a relatively inexpensive way of doing it – asphalt crack filling. While this sounds simple, it really is not.  At seal-the-way paving, we have spent years refining the proper techniques required to seal your asphalt’s cracks and save you money in the long run.

You may already know that water is the number one enemy of asphalt pavement. Preventing water from seeping through cracks and into the base could prolong the life of your driveway or parking lot by up to five years. Rain and snow are the primary causes of asphalt pavement deterioration, but we are here to help.

Parking Lot Striping

The typical commercial parking lot (supermarkets and retailers) will occupy an area three times the size of it’s actual store? That’s a lot of space considering some stores are already several acres in size. It is necessary though so that customers can park, enter and exit safely.  And with every large lot, well planned striping is an absolute must.

Commercial parking lots serve a big role for retailers. They increase the volume of traffic, manage the traffic and serve the customer with convenience. Stores with inadequate or substandard parking spaces rarely last the test of time.
