Asphalt driveways and parking lots are smooth, visually striking investments for any home or business, but keeping them at their best requires care and maintenance. The summer months are especially challenging, with the heat, sunshine, and rain wearing down on any kind of pavement.
B&G Sealcoating & Parking Lot Maintenance is a local family-owned business with 35 years of experience. Based out of Valparaiso, they offer a range of services that repair and protect parking lots and driveways from the Region’s dynamic weather.
The most common and recommended service is called sealcoating. B&G’s experts lay down a thin layer of protective coating that both refreshes the deep black look asphalt is known for, and keeps out unwanted elements such as water, oils, and ultraviolet rays from the sun.
In the summer especially, UV rays break down your asphalt, leaving it brittle and dry. Weakened asphalt is likely to crack and chip away under even routine use. A layer of sealcoating is like sunblock for your driveway, except much longer-lasting. It prevents that UV damage, leaves a smooth surface, and usually lasts anywhere between one to four years.
The price is also much lower than entirely replacing a layer of asphalt. While the cost of a square foot of asphalt is measured in dollars, sealcoating is measured in cents. Over the lifetime of a parking lot or driveway, regular sealcoating can save hundreds or thousands of dollars.
If your driveway or parking lot is too far gone for a layer of sealcoating to solve the problem, B&G offers affordable tear out and replacement services done quickly.
Sometimes you find yourself in the middle, where you might need more than a layer of sealcoating but a total teardown is too far. In those cases, B&G offers other solutions. Hot rubber crack fills are a quick and easy job for small cracks, where experts patch asphalt damage with a layer of durable and pliable rubber. For larger sections of wear and tear, they offer asphalt patching to fill in any kind of hole.
Or, if all you need is a fresh coat of paint, B&G can redo your aging parking lot striping.
No matter what service you need, B&G takes extra care to avoid damage or wear to your landscaping and property. To schedule a free quote, visit valparaisosealcoating.com or call 219-465-5141.
