One of our Scottsdale customers needed his parking lot sealcoated to enhance the pavement and fix the damage. Scottsdale Sealcoating is an excellent choice for asphalt pavements, especially parking lots, due to the large amount of traffic it can endure. This was part of the regular maintenance routine the customer would have performed for all of his facilities and grounds. We know he had been in his business for decades, but he told us that only in the past few years did he realize that regular maintenance ended up saving him a bundle in the long run. He went on to mention that bad asphalt was a lot like a rickety furnace in that people only seem to notice that it is bad when there is a problem. That was why he said he really enjoys a fresh sealcoating, because he can tell when quality asphalt is strong and durable.
The YSC crew arrived on time and ready to work. We inspected the pavement to check for any cracks and marked them. We made sure the pavement was thoroughly cleaned, so all dirt, debris, oil, sand, and chemicals would be removed. Any of these factors can inhibit an effective, strong bond from the sealant and pavement. The cracks were filled and the sealcoating was applied. We worked until the parking lot was sealcoated.
The following day we contacted the customer to get his reaction on the parking lot, and this was his response, “The Young, Swenson & Cross Paving crew did an amazing job on my parking lot; it looks outstanding! The crew showed professionalism and the price was right. Thank you.”
A Maricopa parking lot belonged to a dirt bike and scooter store. Their parking lot was always in exceptional shape. The owner took pride in keeping the parking lot in good condition, because many of his customers would want to try out a new dirt bike or scooter, and they usually did it in the parking lot. Customers would bring their bikes to the store, and sometimes the bikes would leak oil and gas, but the owner didn’t worry about this, because YSC was the asphalt paving company that kept his parking lot clean and maintained. The owner knows that one of the first things that his customer’s notice is his parking lot, and to keep his business steady, he always receives semi regular Maricopa sealcoating from the trusted asphalt contractors at YSC.

Asphalt is just like anything else you own: you have maintenance work to do to keep the asphalt operating correctly. You maintain your car by having an oil change and tune-up. Just like your car, your asphalt requires maintenance periodically.
Preventive maintenance will keep the asphalt in great condition by preserving the life of the asphalt. The preventive maintenance includes:
*Sealing cracks on the asphalt will reduce any water corrosion and intrusion.
*Repairing any chips will protect the top layer of the asphalt.
*Sealing the asphalt every three years will add a thin layer of seal that protects the asphalt from moisture, sun, and skids.
*A fog seal can be applied to the surface of the asphalt to fill in cracks. The fog seal will also waterproof the surface of the asphalt.
*Patching any holes prevent water intrusion.
*Overlay the asphalt to renew the surface of the asphalt. Overlay will add extra strength and provide a new, smooth surface.
*Make sure the asphalt is draining properly. If the surface of the asphalt has water lying on the surface, then the asphalt isn’t draining properly. Water damage is the number one problem for asphalt, so draining maintenance should be a number one priority for the asphalt.
Asphalt requires maintenance, but if the pavement is in need of major repair due to neglect of the asphalt, don’t panic, there are solutions to the problem! Asphalt can be repaired. If the base isn’t draining the water correctly, then a professional asphalt contractor can fix the base. Just adding sealer will not repair the base and holes, and cracks will return to the surface of the asphalt. If you are unsure if your asphalt has a major problem, we recommended that you give us at YSC a call. The contractor will be able to check the asphalt and the base to determine what is causing the water from draining.
If regular maintenance isn’t done to asphalt, then large problems will rapidly develop. The problems will start out minor, but if left unattended, the minor problems are now a huge catastrophe. These types of problems can cost a lot in repairs. This is why doing regular maintenance is a must. The asphalt will repay you by providing a safe, sturdy, and appealing asphalt surface. It doesn’t take a lot of time and money, but it does take dedication.
