Summer will soon be coming to an end and we know that you will be busy during the remainder of the season as you try to have as much fun and adventures as possible. Have you scheduled an appointment to have your parking lot sealed yet? Winter is only a few months away.

This is an important job that needs to be done every three to five years to protect your parking lot and it should be on your list of must-do summer chores. If you’re thinking that you’re too busy to make a call, let us share with you why you should have your parking lot sealed during the summer instead of another season.

Reasons Why Summer is the Best Time to Seal Your Parking Lot

The temperatures are hot and the sun is shining during the summer months. That means the sealant will cure better than any other time of the year. Your parking lot will be ready to face winter’s harsh weather with grace and beauty.

Longer days filled with daylight means that we can schedule the work for later in the day to accommodate your schedule. We fully understand that people are busy living their own lives. We work a variety of hours that accommodate the schedules of our clients.

The sealant will also cure without interruption, because the temperatures stay warm all through the night and traffic is generally very light at night. This is perfect for when you want to reopen the parking lot the next morning.

Rainy days do occur during the summer months, but there are not as many as there are during the spring or the fall. This means that your new parking lot sealant has a better chance of curing completely before the next rain shower occurs.

Preventative Maintenance

Since the sealant has time to cure properly, you will not be faced with the same worn out parking lot at the end of the long winter. You will notice fewer cracks at the end of the winter because the new sealant protects against the freeze-thaw process.

We understand that everyone is busy during the summer. We want to make sure that everyone has a parking lot or driveway that will last through the long, cold, snowy, and icy winters.

Our goal is to help you prevent as many cracks and potholes as possible, so that you will not have to consider tearing up your parking lot and replacing it next spring. As we always say, a little routine maintenance now will prevent major damage later.

Asphalt obviously requires maintenance in order to perform properly from year to year. Call us today at 847-299-1830, email us at, or use our contact page for more information about our asphalt paving and repairs or our asphalt maintenance services.
