Springtime in the Treasure Coast area often brings a sense of excitement. While Florida is known for having generally good weather year-round, property owners still can’t help but start sprucing up their commercial buildings in anticipation of the upcoming busy tourist season. While you don’t have to do too much to prep for Treasure Coast sealcoating, it does help to follow a few basic tips that ensure your project results in beautifully smooth and durable pavement that stands up to an increase in traffic.
What Can You Do to Prepare for Asphalt Sealcoating?
An asphalt sealcoat is designed to fill in tiny cracks while preventing new ones from forming. However, you might need to plan to have larger cracks and potholes repaired first to make sure the seal coat has a smooth surface to adhere to.
The surface also needs to be clean before sealcoating asphalt, which is why your contractor might suggest power washing the pavement to remove surface debris and automotive fluids before they begin their work. Once the surface is prepped, you’ll also need to plan to redirect traffic away from the area being seal coated until the pavement is dry.
What Challenges Can Occur With Asphalt Sealcoating in the Spring?
The temperature and humidity levels in Florida tend to be perfectly fine for applying an asphalt seal coat on most days in the spring. But, you will want to note that paving contractors need to seal coat asphalt in dry conditions.
Sealcoating contractors in Treasure Coast tend to watch the weather, and they’ll let you know if they need to wait out a sudden springtime thunderstorm before moving forward with the project. Making sure to stay in contact with your contractor helps you to stay on top of any necessary changes in the scheduling.
What Else Is Involved With Parking Lot Sealcoating?
Commercial sealcoating creates a blemish-free, smooth and dark surface that increases the curb appeal of your property. As it does so, it will naturally cover up any markings that once existed on the pavement’s surface.
This means that you may need to also plan for parking lot re-striping once the seal coat is cured. Many commercial business owners also use this time as a window of opportunity for redesigning the layout to correct any issues that occurred during the past year.
