Two reasons for asphalt parking lots are:
1. Better for Customers

Asphalt paving offers:
- Better skid resistance

- Better visual distinction for lot markings
Sealcoating is especially useful on asphalt parking lot and provide additional safety benefits. Not only does seal coating add additional life to the pavement, it make it look nicer as well. In colder areas, seal coating has even been proven to melt ice and snow faster.
Sealcoating asphalt parking lots also prevents UV rays from penetrating into the asphalt foundation, which wears the asphalt away. Potholes and cracks are prevented when the asphalt sealcoat is applied. This is because the sealcoat protects against excess water and oil that can seep into the pavement weakening the supportive and structural layers.
