Sealcoating driveways at an HOA community on Long Island
Suffolk

Sealcoating

Is Sealcoating worth it? Yes.

  1. Aesthetics: Well-maintained and clearly marked parking lots contribute to a professional and welcoming appearance for businesses, enhancing curb appeal.
  2. Customer Satisfaction: A well-organized parking area reflects positively on the business, leading to higher customer satisfaction and potentially increased patronage.
  1. Legal Requirements: Adhering to local regulations and standards for parking lot markings can prevent legal issues and fines.
  2. Fire Lanes and Emergency Access: Clearly marked fire lanes and emergency access routes ensure compliance with safety regulations and facilitate quick response in case of emergencies.
  • Optimal Layout: Clear markings help utilize the parking lot’s full capacity, ensuring all available spaces are used efficiently.
  • Minimized Wasted Space: Properly sized and marked spaces prevent vehicles from taking up multiple spots, thus maximizing the number of vehicles that can be accommodated.
  1. Reduces Accidents: Clear markings help drivers navigate the parking lot more safely, reducing the likelihood of collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians.
  2. Pedestrian Safety: Marked crosswalks and walkways ensure pedestrians have designated safe zones, minimizing the risk of accidents.

Sealcoating is an integral part of a preventive maintenance program. It extends the useful service life of your pavement asset and costs considerably less than repaving or other measures that may be needed later to correct chronic or acute pavement problems.

PCTC estimated that the cost savings of a pavement maintenance program that includes sealcoating results in a 12-year total cost for a commercial installation of about $0.39/sq. ft. versus an unsealed total cost of $1.76/sq. ft.

Cracksealing a parking lot in Sayville
Suffolk

Cracksealing

Is crack sealing worth it? Yes.

  1. Preventive Maintenance: Sealing cracks with hot material prevents further deterioration of the pavement, extending its service life and maintaining its integrity.
  1. Prevents Water Damage: Crack sealing with hot sealant blocks water entry, protecting the pavement’s base from erosion and extending its lifespan.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: By addressing problems early through crack sealing, larger expenses associated with full pavement rehabilitation can be avoided, making it a cost-efficient maintenance strategy.

Crack sealing is a crucial preventative maintenance technique that protects asphalt pavements by sealing cracks against water intrusion, the primary cause of pavement deterioration. When water seeps into the pavement through unsealed cracks, it can erode the base, leading to potholes, subsidence, and ultimately, a failure of the pavement structure.

By applying a hot, rubberized sealant, crack sealing effectively closes these openings, preventing water and debris from entering and damaging the pavement’s substructure. This extends the pavement’s lifespan by maintaining its structural integrity and delaying the onset of major repairs, making crack sealing a cost-effective method for maintaining smooth and durable road surfaces.

  2. Pedestrian Safety: Marked crosswalks and walkways ensure pedestrians have designated safe zones, minimizing the risk of accidents.
  1. Efficient Navigation: Directional arrows and signs guide drivers through the lot, preventing confusion and bottlenecks, especially during peak hours.
  2. Organized Parking: Well-marked spaces ensure vehicles are parked in an orderly fashion, optimizing the use of available space and preventing obstructions.

Pavement markings play a critical role in managing traffic flow, parking organization, and accessibility compliance in parking lots and roadways. These markings include directional arrows, parking bay lines, and designated handicap spaces, each meticulously applied using high-quality, durable paints.

Directional markings ensure smooth traffic movement, guiding drivers safely around the property. Parking bay lines optimize space usage, helping to maximize the number of vehicles that can be accommodated. Handicap spaces are clearly marked not only to comply with ADA regulations but also to provide necessary accessibility for those with disabilities.

Asphalt Patch

If the damage is localized to a small area of the parking lot and the rest of the surface is in good condition, patching can resolve these specific issues without the need for extensive resurfacing.


Full-depth asphalt patch repairs are conducted when there are serious issues that affect the base and sub-base layers, such as extensive cracking, large potholes, or subgrade failures. This method restores the structural integrity of the pavement, providing a more durable and long-lasting solution compared to surface patching.

Parking lot repair

As a property manager, you’re well aware of the importance of maintaining your parking lot to ensure safety and longevity.

However, there comes a time when merely patching up the surface won’t suffice, and a more comprehensive solution like milling and resurfacing is necessary. Let’s break down the key points to consider:

Hempstead

Milling

Over time, parking lots can suffer from various forms of pavement failure, such as cracking, potholes, and water damage. These issues often stem from deeper structural problems that surface patches can’t fix.

Initially, the investment in milling and resurfacing might seem substantial compared to routine repairs. However, this process will be more cost-effective in the long run.
Milling the existing surface and adding a new top layer extends the lifespan of your parking lot, delaying the need for a complete rebuild. By investing in resurfacing, you’re effectively reducing the frequency and cost of future repairs, leading to significant savings over time.

Is it Cracksealing or crack Filling? Crack Sealing? Crack Filling?

We use the terms – Crack Filling and Crack Sealing interchangeably to mean – Crack Sealing. – Because there is technically a difference between the two. Simply – Crack Sealing is flexible.  Crack Filling is generally not.

Technically, Crack filling is used to treat Non-Working Cracks—cracks that do not expand and contract much with changes in temperature.

Good luck finding “non-working cracks” on Long Island!

Now is the time for crack sealing

Cracks are in their average position – not completely open and not completely closed.  

Sure we crackseal during other times of the year with great success – but Spring and Fall is the preferred time to crackseal for optimal flexibility results.

Early Intervention with crack sealing

Property managers and facility directors recognize the importance of early crack sealing to ensure the durability and safety of their pavement infrastructure.

The #1 advantage of sealing cracks at an early stage is the prevention of water infiltration and water damage. Water is a significant enemy of pavement surfaces; when it seeps into cracks, it erodes the base, leading to larger cracks and eventual potholes.

Improved Safety

Unsealed cracks can quickly evolve into potholes, creating safety hazards for pedestrians and vehicles.

How to repair potholes. The right way.

We properly fix potholes to maintain the durability and safety of parking lots and driveways.

  1. Assess the Damage: The initial step is to find and evaluate the pothole. This includes determining its dimensions, depth, and the state of the nearby pavement in order to decide on the most effective repair method.
  2. Prepare the Site: Prior to starting any repairs, it is crucial to clear away any debris, water, or loose materials from the pothole. This may require using a broom, air compressor, or other tools to ensure that the area is free of any obstructions and ready for the repair materials.
  3. Clean the Area: Before any repair can begin, it’s essential to remove any debris, water, and loose material from the pothole. This can involve using a broom, air compressor, or other tools to ensure the area is clean and ready for repair material.
  4. Prepare the Hole: For the repair material to adhere properly, the edges of the pothole may need to be cut or shaped. This creates a more uniform space for the filler material and can help prevent the repair from failing.
  5. Apply the Repair Material: Hot asphalt —is then applied to the pothole. The material is compacted into the hole, filling it from the bottom up to ensure there are no air pockets that could lead to future weaknesses.
  6. Compact the Patch: Once the pothole is filled, the new material needs to be compacted to match the density of the surrounding pavement. This can be done with a hand tamper for the small areas and a paving roller for larger repairs, ensuring the patch is flush with the road surface.
  7. Seal the Patch: Finally, the new patch should be sealed around the edges to prevent water from penetrating between the new and old pavement. This helps to extend the life of the repair and prevent the pothole from re-forming.

Precision Concrete Replacement

Loading Dock Aprons: The area immediately outside the loading dock doors, known as the dock apron, is often constructed using concrete. It provides a stable surface for trucks to park on while loading and unloading goods. This is the area that also gets the most wear and tear. Nassau and Suffolk county commercial properties are no exception.

Sectioning

This sectional approach allows for targeted interventions that keep the entire pavement system in top condition, ensuring that each area is addressed according to its specific needs.

  • Assessment and Planning: We conducted a comprehensive assessment of the existing concrete. We analyzed the extent of the damage and identified areas that required attention. This allowed us to create a tailored plan that addressed the hub’s specific needs.
  • Removal and Preparation: To lay a strong foundation for the new concrete, we removed the damaged sections with precision. Proper preparation is crucial, and our team left no room for compromise. This step ensured that the new concrete would adhere perfectly, eliminating future problems.
  • High-Quality Materials: For this loading dock transformation, we selected top-grade concrete that could withstand heavy loads, extreme weather conditions, and the test of time.
  • Expert Installation: Our experienced team worked diligently to install the new concrete. Every detail was meticulously attended to, from ensuring proper curing to achieving the right level of smoothness for safe and efficient loading and unloading.
  • Finishing Touches: We understand the importance of aesthetics as well as functionality. We provided a smooth, visually appealing finish that not only met industry standards but also enhanced the overall appearance of the loading dock.

Aligns with Budget Management

This approach not only speaks to the practical concerns of maintenance but also aligns with budget management and the tailored care that different pavement areas require.

Made with Concrete – Behind Commercial Buildings

  • Loading Dock Aprons: The area immediately outside the loading dock doors, known as the dock apron, is often constructed using concrete. It provides a stable surface for trucks to park on while loading and unloading goods.
  • Dock Ramps: If your loading dock requires a ramp for trucks to access it, this ramp can be made of concrete. Concrete ramps are durable and can withstand heavy truck traffic.
  • Dumpster Pads: Concrete pads are often used as the base or foundation for large trash containers, such as dumpsters. These pads provide a level surface for the containers and help distribute the weight evenly, preventing them from sinking into the ground or becoming unstable.
  • Drains: Concrete drainage structures, such as catch basins and stormwater detention basins, are essential for managing water runoff and preventing flooding in the loading dock and parking areas. Drains such as Trench Drains incorporate both precast concrete as well as poured concrete for their construction.
  • Loading Dock Stairs: Concrete stairs are installed to connect the loading dock level with the ground or interior floor level. To ensure safety they are usually equipped with handrails.
  • Retaining Walls: In cases where there are elevation changes or the need for structural support, concrete retaining walls may be used. These walls are designed to hold back soil or provide support for elevated loading areas.

Yes. Asphalt sealcoating is important.

When it comes to asphalt maintenance, one of the most debated topics among property managers, facility directors, and homeowners on Long Island is the importance of sealcoating. Whether you’re responsible for a sprawling industrial complex or you simply want to prolong the life of your home’s driveway, sealcoating should be a cornerstone in your blacktop pavement management plan.

The Science of Sealcoating

What is asphalt sealcoating? Let’s start with what is asphalt or blacktop first. Asphalt is a mixture of various sizes of aggregates bonded together with bitumen, a sticky, black, oil-based substance. While asphalt is incredibly durable, it’s not completely resistant to wear and tear. Rain, snow, UV rays, and traffic all contribute to the gradual breakdown of the surface. This is where sealcoating comes in.

Sealcoating is essentially a protective layer applied over the asphalt. Think of it as sunscreen for your parking lot or driveway. It protects against harmful elements, including water penetration, which is the number one enemy of asphalt.

Benefits for Commercial and Industrial Property Owners

  1. Cost Savings: The cost of repairing or replacing an asphalt surface can be astronomical. Sealcoating is a proactive and cost-effective way to extend the lifespan of your pavement by up to 30%.
  2. Improved Appearance: Nothing refreshes the look of a weathered parking lot like a fresh coat of sealant. It not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also projects an image of professionalism.
  3. Safety: A well-maintained surface minimizes the risk of slips, trips, and falls, which can save you from potential legal issues.

Advantages for Homeowners

  1. Increased Property Value: A well-maintained driveway is often one of the first things people notice when they visit or pass by your home. Sealcoating enhances curb appeal, and by extension, the value of your property.
  2. Reduced Long-Term Costs: Though it might seem like an unnecessary expense, the relatively low cost of sealcoating can save you significant amounts of money in long-term repair or replacement costs.
  3. Low Maintenance: Sealcoated surfaces are easier to clean and maintain. Sweeping, snow removal, and even washing your car becomes much simpler when the surface is smooth and sealed.

When Should You Sealcoat?

Typically, a new asphalt surface should be seal-coated within the first year of its installation and then every 2-3 years thereafter. If you’re unsure, give PaveMaster a call or email for personalized advice tailored to your specific needs.

Conclusion

Seal coating is more than just a cosmetic enhancement; it’s an investment in the longevity and resilience of your asphalt surfaces. Given its benefits in cost-saving, safety, and aesthetics, the answer to whether sealcoating is essential is a resounding yes. For both commercial and residential properties, it’s a small step that leads to significant gains.

Don’t wait for signs of wear and tear to show; take proactive measures to safeguard your asphalt investment today.

Parking Lots on Long Island – Concrete or Asphalt?

Both commonly used materials for paving roads, sidewalks, parking lots and residential property spaces. Simply – Asphalt performs best in colder climates. Cost effective. Easy to install, maintain and repair.
Concrete performs best in hot climates. It is very durable. While asphalt is commonly used for the majority of parking lots on Long Island, concrete is used strategically in specific areas for various reasons. We have you covered with both with our expert asphalt and concrete teams at PaveMaster.

  1. Cost-Effectiveness: Asphalt tends to be more cost-effective upfront compared to concrete.
  2. Climate Considerations: Asphalt might be more suitable in colder climates since it’s less likely to crack from freeze-thaw cycles. Conversely, concrete might be preferred in hotter climates as it doesn’t soften under high temperatures.
  3. Installation Speed: Asphalt can be laid down and completed more quickly than concrete, making it a good choice for projects with tight timelines.
  4. High-Traffic Areas: Concrete is often used for high-traffic areas within a parking lot, such as entrances, exits, and drive lanes. Its durability and resistance to heavy loads make it suitable for these areas where wear and tear are more pronounced.
  5. Longevity: Concrete generally has a longer lifespan than asphalt, but this can vary based on factors like traffic load and maintenance practices.
  6. Maintenance: While asphalt requires regular maintenance, such as sealing and occasional repairs, it’s typically easier and less expensive to fix compared to concrete.
  7. Feel and Noise: Asphalt provides a smoother and quieter ride, which can be an essential consideration for roads and highways.

    When to use Concrete with Asphalt?
  8. Curbs and Islands: Concrete is commonly used for curbs, islands, and medians within a parking lot. Its ability to maintain a consistent appearance and shape over time is advantageous for these features that may experience vehicle impacts or require clear delineation.
  9. Pedestrian Pathways: Concrete is an excellent choice for pedestrian pathways, sidewalks, and crosswalks within a parking lot. Its smooth surface and resistance to cracking provide a safe and stable walking surface.
  10. Wheel Stops and Bumpers: Concrete is used for wheel stops and bumper blocks that define parking spaces and prevent vehicles from overextending into pedestrian areas or neighboring parking spaces.


Concrete is perfect for heavy traffic

The use of concrete instead of asphalt for roadways in delivery hubs can be attributed to several factors:

  1. Durability: Concrete is known for its durability and long lifespan compared to asphalt. It can withstand heavy loads and constant traffic over extended periods without significant deterioration. In delivery hubs, where there is a high volume of vehicles and heavy trucks, concrete can provide a robust surface that can handle the continuous stress and weight.
  2. Load-bearing capacity: Concrete has superior load-bearing capacity compared to asphalt. It can support heavy vehicles and equipment commonly found in delivery hubs without experiencing significant deformation or structural damage. This is crucial for ensuring safe and reliable transportation within the hub, especially when dealing with large shipments and industrial machinery.
  3. Resistance to oil and chemical spills: Delivery hubs often deal with vehicles that may leak oil or other chemicals. Concrete has a higher resistance to such spills compared to asphalt, which can be susceptible to damage and staining from oil and chemical substances. Concrete surfaces are easier to clean and maintain in these situations, ensuring a safer and more presentable environment.
  4. Reduced maintenance requirements: While initial construction costs for concrete roadways may be higher than those for asphalt, concrete generally requires less maintenance over its lifespan. It is less prone to cracking and potholes, resulting in fewer repairs and associated costs. This advantage is particularly beneficial for large-scale operations like delivery hubs, where minimizing disruptions and maximizing efficiency is crucial.
  5. Enhanced visibility: Concrete roadways tend to have a lighter color compared to asphalt, which can improve visibility, especially in low-light conditions. This can be beneficial for vehicle operators and pedestrians within the delivery hub, contributing to overall safety and reducing the risk of accidents.

Asphalt Resurfacing Saves Time and $

New Tenant

For a new anchor store in a shopping center in Hempstead – milling and paving was a great way to freshen up the look and feel of the shopping experience. Milling + Paving is a cost effective solution to have new asphalt again.


Asphalt Resurfacing

Milling + Paving 101

There are several advantages to milling and paving an old parking lot versus completely ripping out the existing pavement and starting over.

  1. Cost Efficiency: Milling and overlaying is less expensive than a complete tear out and replacement because it utilizes the existing base material. You’re only removing and replacing the top layer of asphalt, rather than the whole structure.
  2. Time Savings: Milling and paving can be accomplished more quickly than complete reconstruction. The speedier process means less disruption for businesses, customers, or residents using the parking lot.
  3. Environmentally Friendly: Milling is more environmentally friendly because the removed material can be recycled and reused in new asphalt or other construction projects.
  4. Structural Integrity: If the existing pavement base is still in good condition, milling allows you to keep the strong base while still getting a new surface. The process effectively corrects surface distresses, such as cracks or ruts, giving you a smoother ride quality and increasing the lifespan of the parking lot.
  5. Less Disruption to Surrounding Infrastructure: Milling and paving is less disruptive to the surrounding environment. For instance, with complete reconstruction, it might be necessary to alter surrounding landscaping, curbs, or drainage systems. This is less likely with milling and paving.

However, it’s important to note that milling and paving may not always be the best choice. If the base layer of the parking lot is significantly damaged or degraded, a full reconstruction might be more cost-effective in the long term, despite the higher initial cost.

Parking Lot Drains

Trench Drains

Trench drain for parking lots and driveways alternatively known as channel or linear drains, have particular advantages over other types of drainage systems that make them an excellent choice for parking lots, particularly in areas like the Northeast US that experience substantial rainfall and snowfall.

The distinct advantages of trench drains include:

  1. Efficiency in High Water-Volume Areas: Trench drains are designed to manage high volumes of water, making them particularly effective in parking lots, where water from a large surface area is concentrated. Unlike other drains, they have a long and narrow design, creating a larger surface area for capturing and diverting water.
  2. Versatility in Directional Water Flow: Unlike point drains that rely on the ground being sloped towards them, trench drains work effectively on a flat surface by directing the water flow in one specific direction. This can be particularly beneficial for larger parking lots, where sloping the entire area might not be practical.
  3. Avoiding Water Backup: Point drains can become overwhelmed with heavy water flow or blocked with debris, causing water backup. The design of trench drains, however, allows water to continue to flow along the length of the drain if one part is blocked.
  4. Ease of Maintenance: Trench drains are easier to clean and maintain because their design allows for simple access and inspection.
  5. Safety and Comfort: Unlike point drains, trench drains are not a tripping hazard as they are flush with the ground and can be designed to blend with the surface, thus maintaining the aesthetics of the parking lot.

Trench drains are commonly installed at the entrances and exits of parking lots where water tends to accumulate due to the large, flat surface area. They can also be found along the perimeter of a parking lot, or strategically placed in areas with a high propensity for water pooling.

In summary, the strategic application of trench drains in a parking lot design can effectively manage stormwater, protect your investment, and ensure the safety of all users.

Parking Lot + Larger projects = More time

Parking lot repairs and maintenance services are fairly easy to schedule – but for larger projects – you should be looking at scheduling now to get this on the 2023 calendar.

Schedule early for:

  • Asphalt Maintenance and repairs
  • Resurfacing
  • Milling & Paving
  • New Construction
  • Drainage
  • Concrete projects
  • Masonry projects
  • Site-work

What does your parking lot need?

The most common types of repair and maintenance for parking lots to extend the life of the pavement include:

  1. Sealcoating: This is the process of applying a protective coating to asphalt-based pavements to provide a layer of protection from the elements: water, oils, and U.V. damage. Typically, it is recommended that asphalt surfaces be sealcoated every two to three years, depending on the level of wear and tear.
  2. Crack Sealing/Filling: Over time, due to various factors such as thermal expansion and contraction, water infiltration, and heavy loads, cracks may develop in the pavement. It’s essential to fill these cracks as soon as they appear to prevent them from growing and causing more significant damage. There are different types of crack fillers, including hot-applied and cold-applied ones, which are chosen based on the type and size of the crack.
  3. Pothole Repair: Potholes are both a safety hazard and an aesthetic issue. They usually form due to water seeping into the pavement through cracks and then expanding when it freezes. There are various methods for pothole repair, such as throw-and-roll, semi-permanent, spray injection, and full-depth patching. The method chosen often depends on the size and severity of the pothole.
  4. Line Striping: Over time, parking lot lines can fade due to weather conditions and general wear and tear. Regular re-striping is necessary for maintaining a safe and organized parking lot. It’s also an opportunity to reassess the layout and make changes to improve traffic flow or increase parking capacity.
  5. Drainage Maintenance: Proper drainage is crucial for the longevity of a parking lot. If water pools on the asphalt, it can infiltrate the surface and cause damage. Regular inspections and maintenance of catch basins, drain inlets, and other drainage structures help prevent these issues.
  6. Sweeping and Cleaning: Regular sweeping and cleaning can help extend the life of a parking lot by removing debris that can damage the surface over time. It also enhances the overall appearance and safety of the parking lot.

All of these are part of a proactive maintenance strategy that can significantly extend the life of a parking lot, saving money in the long term by delaying costly full-scale repaving.

Crackfilling early and consistently


There are significant cost savings in the long run if crack filling, is performed on asphalt pavement in a parking lot. Addressing cracks early and consistently can prevent the need for more extensive and expensive repairs later on. Here are some reasons why:

  1. Prevention of water infiltration: Crack filling prevents water from seeping into the pavement’s base and sub-base layers, which can cause significant damage and lead to more severe pavement failures, such as potholes and alligator cracking. Water damage can be costly to repair and may require complete pavement replacement in extreme cases.
  2. Extended pavement life: Regular crack filling can help extend the life of your pavement by slowing down the rate of deterioration. This means you won’t have to invest in a full pavement replacement as quickly, saving you money in the long run.
  3. Reduction in additional repair costs: By addressing cracks early, you can prevent more extensive damage and reduce the need for other costly repairs, such as patching or resurfacing.
  4. Enhanced safety and aesthetics: Regular maintenance can help prevent accidents and liability issues caused by damaged pavement, as well as maintain a more attractive appearance for your property, which can contribute to property value and customer satisfaction.
  5. Lower lifecycle costs: Although there are costs associated with regular maintenance, the overall lifecycle cost of well-maintained asphalt pavement is generally lower than that of neglected pavement. This is because the cost of major repairs or replacement can far exceed the costs of regular maintenance.

In summary, regular crack filling and maintenance can lead to significant cost savings over time by extending the life of your asphalt pavement, reducing the need for expensive repairs, and maintaining an attractive and safe parking lot.

How do you maintain asphalt?

Address cracking early to keep water out from under your pavement. Water gets in. It freezes. It erodes base materials ultimately resulting in potholes and pavement failure.And eventually, over time, nature wins and breaks apart the asphalt.

Filling cracks with crack filler stops the entrance of water and the rate of deterioration of the pavement is significantly slowed.

Sealcoating protects.

Asphalt sealcoating protects and beautifies at the same time.

Asphalt pavement is mostly rock and/or stone and gravel, along with a binder. The rock, or aggregate, is held together with this binder known as asphalt cement. Maintaining this binder is essential to preserve the service life of asphalt surfaces. Rain, U.V. rays, and chemicals, as they are introduced into the asphalt, will degrade the binder and thus begin the degradation process of the asphalt. This will continue and create a surface that turns brittle. The earlier an asphalt sealer can be applied in the life cycle of asphalt the better.
