Should You Seal, Resurface, or Replace Your Driveway or Parking Lot?

Whether on a parking lot or driveway, gray, cracked asphalt isn’t attractive, and broken pavement can cause accidents. Property owners’ primary question is what type of repair services will best meet their needs.

Sealcoating

Asphalt sealcoating is recommended to restore a paved surface when it shows signs of wear and tear, such as fading, cracking, and small potholes. Sealcoating provides a protective layer that helps to seal small cracks and prevent water penetration, which can cause further damage. It also enhances the pavement’s appearance by restoring its color and creating a smooth surface. Sealcoating should be done every 3-5 years for optimal results.

Resurfacing

Resurfacing services are typically recommended when the pavement has moderate to severe damage that cannot be fixed through sealcoating or patching. This includes large cracks, extensive potholes, and uneven surfaces. Resurfacing involves removing the top layer of damaged asphalt and replacing it with a new layer, which extends the life of the pavement by up to 15 years. This option is more cost effective than demolishing and paving the area again. In addition, it provides a smooth, new surface for improved safety and aesthetics.

Repaving

Asphalt pavement typically lasts 20-30 years, but this can vary depending on climate, usage, and maintenance. When a paved surface is extensively damaged, has multiple potholes, and has reached the end of its lifespan, it is time to replace it. Signs that need a replacement include alligator cracking, deep and wide cracks, and large areas of uneven settling. In these cases, replacement is more cost-effective and long-term than continuing to repair the pavement.
