As part of a pavement maintenance system, parking lot crack sealing can significantly reduce pavement deterioration by preventing water penetration into the base and sub base layers.
Crack sealing will not improve the pavement immediately, however, the benefits manifest the following years when it becomes quite obvious that the asphalt has not deteriorated any further.
At a time when the labour force is decreasing, along with the funds to support road maintenance, crack sealing remains the most beneficial and economical maintenance procedure. The overall success of pavement maintenance programs that include crack sealing, along with the low cost, make it a highly desired procedure by successful property managers and owners. Crack sealing provides the most cost-effective use of dollars over time compared to other pavement maintenance procedures.
