Asphalt Sealcoating in Raleigh, NC & The Surrounding Areas

The sun, water, traffic and other elements can wear asphalt out, making it hard, brittle and inefficient. For optimal protection and the best driving experience, commercial driveways and parking lots require sealcoating. 

Sealcoating asphalt involves spraying and/or squeegeeing sealer to prevent costly issues and ensure a rich black finish. As one of the largest providers of sealcoating in North Carolina, Raleigh Paving successfully applies over 40,000 gallons of sealer each year. We can sealcoat and stripe most parking lots and have them opened back up to traffic in one day.

Benefits of Commercial & Industrial Asphalt Sealcoating

Driveway and parking lot sealcoating can prevent surfaces from having an aged, gray look or restore them if they’re already worn-looking. By protecting the bitumens—or liquid binders that hold asphalt together—sealcoating helps slow pavement deterioration. It also helps lock in and preserve asphalt’s original oils, which is especially important for newer surfaces.

  • Create the safest, most appealing experience for anyone who visits your business 
  • Prevent oxidation caused by harmful sun rays (which can wear away up to 50% of asphalt’s original thickness in just 5 years)
  • Enable greater resistance to salt, oil, gas and chemicals
  • Stop moisture from seeping into asphalt during freeze-thaw air temperature cycles
  • Considerably reduce maintenance costs and extend the life of asphalt by up to 300%

Asphalt Sealcoating Considerations

Asphalt Condition

Besides helping with cracks narrower than 1/8th inch wide, sealcoating generally doesn’t resolve existing issues in asphalt. If asphalt is too rigid or distressed, other solutions such as asphalt repair, overlay/resurfacing or crackfilling may need to come first. Then, sealcoating can help upkeep asphalt in the long term.

The Timing

Most asphalt needs sealcoating every 2-3 years for optimal outcomes, but the timing ultimately depends on factors like the amount of traffic and sunlight it gets. If you’re seeing a grayed color and visible wear and damage, consider having it done sooner rather than later.

Finding A Provider

When searching for an asphalt sealcoating company, opt for one that has the resources and expertise to get the job done right the first time, in a timely manner. The sealcoating industry has a low entry point for inexperienced contractors, so some may cut corners with their practices and the products they use. This includes using more water in the sealant than the manufacturer recommends in order to increase yield.
