When you’ve formally scheduled an asphalt sealcoating job for your parking lot you should commit to some preparation work beforehand. By following our guidelines, you can ensure that the project is brought to a successful conclusion.
How Should I Prepare for a Sealcoating Job – The Plan!
Keep Tabs on the Weather
For the labor to be effective, the weather will have to cooperate. If the forecast calls for a chance of rain, then the job will have to be postponed. If you do not hear from us in the immediate aftermath, you can call us to reschedule. We’ll pencil you in for an appointment date that is convenient for your company.
Shut Off the Sprinklers
Because the sealcoating job can’t be completed when the asphalt is wet, you will need to shut off the sprinklers that are located near the parking lot. Because most sprinkler systems are controlled by a single switch, you should be able to reactivate your system rather easily. If the project is scheduled to take place early in the morning, it is often best to shut off the sprinklers the evening before.
Remove Cars from the Lot Beforehand
A reputable sealcoating job is designed to protect the entire parking lot from cracks, potholes and other problems that are commonly associated with harsh weather. You should ensure that all vehicles are removed from the lot in the hours before the project is scheduled to occur.
Prevent Access to the Sealed Area in the Aftermath
Pedestrian and vehicular traffic should be prevented from accessing the area for at least 24 hours. This will ensure that the chemical components within the sealing material are given time to adhere to the pavement. You may want to cordon off the area so that individuals will not accidentally set foot on the asphalt.
