This commercial project in Clifton New Jersey involved a property that sits on 7.10 acres and features a 9,667 SF repair/maintenance facility equipped with 3 drive-in repair bays (expandable), floor drains and 1,626 SF of office space. It can accommodate over 156 trailers stalls and is located less than 8.0 miles from the Lincoln Tunnel and 13.5 miles from the Port Newark Container Terminal. That being noted, this commercial property’s asphalt paving and parking areas are subjected to a large amount of vehicular traffic, necessitating the need of timely and quality maintenance to provide for a safe working environment and properly drained and level asphalt surfaces.
Sealcoating is the application of coal tar emulsion or asphalt-based sealer to a pavement surface to significantly extends its life. Sealcoat is an effective waterproofing agent. On an unsealed asphalt surface, water trickles down into the asphalt’s pores. Water penetration erodes the asphalt surface from the bottom up by causing cracks and potholes to form. Water then goes through a freeze/thaw contraction/expansion cycle, resulting in much more expensive repairs.
UV rays from the sun are extremely harmful to your asphalt pavement. The UV rays cause the surface to oxidize which breaks down the asphalt’s binding properties, weakens the bonds within it, makes it become brittle, and fades to grey. This in turn will result in “alligator cracking” that leads to hazardous potholes.
Sealcoat offers great resistance to gas and oil spills. Vehicle fluids heavily saturate and break down the pavement surface and dissolve its binding properties. Sealcoat acts as a barrier between the chemical drippings and the asphalt. The coal tars used in sealcoat don’t allow for gas and oil spills to pass through to the asphalt.
Since your parking lot is the first thing your customers and tenants see, it directly impacts their perception of your establishment. It is then necessary to maintain your commercial property to attract more customers, keep it safe, and create a positive impression of your business.
