Preserve Your Parking Lot or Driveway with Sealcoating
Sealcoating is essential to help you preserve a paved driveway or a parking lot for your business. Paving Plus recommends residential sealcoating every two to three years and commercial sealcoating every year in Southwest Virginia. Sealcoating is a maintenance step in which we apply a protective top layer to a driveway or parking lot’s asphalt. The protective layer, which acts like a suit of armor, defends the parking lot from other liquids, especially rain.
Sealcoating Defends Against the Effects of Rain, Sun, Snow, and Ice
One of the benefits of sealcoating a parking lot or driveway is that it slows the rate of rain penetrating the asphalt. Rain, sun, snow, and ice can take their toll on pavements in and around Christiansburg, VA. Over time, as rain falls on a parking lot or driveway, the water weakens the bond between the asphalt binder and aggregates. When your pavement cracks, it becomes vulnerable to the weather conditions, especially rain.
Sealcoating Protects Your Southwest Virginia Pavement Against:
- Chemical Spills
- Snow Damage
- Water Penetration
Protect Your Vehicle, Family, or Customers from Unsafe Pavement
Water will slowly erode an unprotected parking lot and weaken the pavement’s structural and supportive layers. If you don’t treat the small cracks in the driveway or parking lot, they can expand and begin to cause more damage. More cracks and potholes can make the pavement unsafe for vehicles, family, and customers. Paving Plus has seen this happen many times in driveways and parking lots throughout the region.
Business Owners Should Sealcoat to Avoid Liability Claims
Is there potential for customers falling, tripping, or twisting an ankle in your asphalt parking lot from potholes and cracks? If there is a chance of that happening, you could be open to a lawsuit. Perform sealcoating to avoid legal trouble.
Secure parking lots with no or very little damage offer a layer of protection for business owners from potential liability claims. Don’t put your livelihood at risk in these challenging times by not taking care of your asphalt parking lot. Potential customers might decide to take their business elsewhere if your parking lot is in bad shape.

Most residents, business owners, and managers want to save their money for what they perceive as more important things. But ignoring the cracks and potholes in your asphalt won’t make the problem go away. It could make the problem worse, in fact. It could lead to more expensive repairs down the road. So, it is essential that you do sealcoating on your pavement.
Sealcoating Halts Water’s Damaging Journey to the Base Material
You might not know that replacing or installing new pavement is more costly than regular sealcoating. When Paving Plus does sealcoating, we seal the small cracks that can turn into large cracks. You won’t have to worry about the blacktop becoming dry and brittle.
The top surface layer won’t erode, and small cracks won’t appear on the blacktop surface. Our sealcoating puts a stop to the damaging water draining down to the base material. Sealcoating also helps protect asphalt from the sun as well as the harmful effects of oil and gasoline spills.

When you sealcoat your parking lot, it makes your business more appealing and it draws in customers.
