NJ Parking Lot Sealcoating 


What Is Sealcoating?

Sealcoat is a protective coating that extends the life of asphalt pavement and protects it from damage caused by UV rays, deicers, and fluids from vehicles.

Why Should I Sealcoat My Parking Lot?

Asphalt sealcoating has many benefits. The most important being, it reduces long-term repair costs. A properly maintained and sealed asphalt pavement surface reduces long-term repair costs.

Due to exposure to the elements a your parking lot may not be as black when it was when it was first installed. Sealcoating helps give your asphalt surface the black color it once had when it was first paved. It should be completed within 12 months of any paving project. It will not cure existing parking lot problems such as cracks and potholes, but it will help them from forming to begin with. A fresh sealcoating job adds curb appeal to your parking lot and gives customers a great first impressions.

During the cold winter months, seal coating can speed up snow and ice melting on pavement surfaces. By keeping the asphalt dark in color it is able to absorb and retain heat. This heat helps melt snow and ice on the pavement surface.

How Much Does It Cost To Sealcoat A

Parking Lot?

Using Coal Tar or Asphalt Emulsion Sealer, the average price to sealcoat your asphalt surface ranges from $0.14 - $0.25 per square foot. A number of factors can affect the sealcoating price:

  • Mobilizations: The amount of phases the project can be completed to minimize disruption to your customers / tenants.
  • Cleaning & Preparation: How dirty the parking lot is and how much cleaning will be involved using walk behind air blowers and steel wire hand brooms. Pavement sealer requires asphalt to be 100% clean to adhere / perform properly. The amount of oil spots which require preparation and priming with a latex based oil spot primer.
  • Layout Of The Parking Lot: Wide, open square asphalt parking lots and interior roadways without a lot of landscape islands, turns and other chopped up areas. When pavement sealer can be applied with a distributor truck spray bar making a 10’ pass at a time versus a hand held spray wand applying sealer in a 3’ pass at a time.
  • Size Of The Asphalt Parking Lot To Be Sealcoated: With all things being equal (Clean Parking Lot, 10 miles from office etc) theoretically it takes the same amount of time for a 4-person sealcoating crew to sealcoat a 15,000 sq ft open Burger King parking lot working in sections that is does to sealcoat a 60,000 sq ft closed office building parking lot on a Saturday.

With the rising cost of Coal Tar and Asphalt Emulsion raw materials, fuel, insurance rates etc., if you are receiving prices for sealcoating under $0.14 square feet / $1.26 square yard, you are most likely going to receive a sub-standard project when complete.
