Seal Coating and Line Striping

Sealcoating is the secret weapon for long-lasting asphalt surfaces. The primary purpose is to reseal and protect a fresh layer of asphalt or as an extra layer of protection for older asphalt to give it a newer appearance. It’s important to note that sealcoating is NOT for fixing damage and cracks. It can’t cover up that sort of damage. For proper sealcoating to be effective, it must be applied to a strong, damage-free, properly laid base of asphalt pavement. Sealcoat is then applied as a liquid and dries in a deep black finish, giving you that nice new crisp pavement appearance.

Regular Sealcoating Extends the Lifespan of Your Asphalt

One of the most significant benefits of asphalt sealcoating is it can double the lifespan of asphalt. Asphalt is naturally extremely porous; anything from snow, rain, and temperature changes can cause buckling and cracking. At the same time, exposure to constant sunlight will make your surface fade over time.

Sealcoating helps to protect your asphalt by adding an extra layer on top that makes the asphalt less permeable to the environment and chemicals. Water is the greatest enemy to asphalt. With this additional layer of protection, the risks of cracking and becoming damaged are greatly reduced, which will increase the lifespan of your asphalt.

Think of sealcoating as an investment that leads to lower repair and repaving costs down the road. No more worries about more asphalt costs for a longer period. To truly get the longest lifespan out of your asphalt before total replacement, we recommend having asphalt sealer applied every 2-3 years depending on the wear and tear and conditions in your area.

Sealcoating Does Wonders for Curb Appeal

Asphalt fades over time and starts looking run down and gray.  Fresh sealcoating makes the asphalt look shiny black and looks slick. Sealcoating helps extend the lifespan of your asphalt and improves the curb appeal of your home or business.

Charlotte Parking lot Line Striping

Not only does fresh line striping give your parking lot a great aesthetic appeal, but proper line striping is also required to be in compliance with all local, state, and federal traffic laws. When creating parking spaces, line striping is a must do job that helps improve the traffic flow through your Charlotte parking lot. If you have ever driven in a poorly designed and painted parking lot, it sticks out due to the horrible experience. SMI Paving only uses DOT approved paints that are made specifically with certain materials added for increased durability and visibility for our striping service.

ADA Compliance

ADA stands for The Americans with Disabilities Act that Congress enacted in 1990 to prevent discrimination for those with mental, physical, and cognitive disabilities. When it comes down to it, compliance is a LOT more than just setting aside a few spots for handicap parking and painting them blue.

ADA Compliant Parking Lots

All commercial and public buildings are required to have accessible spaces.  Everything from hotels to churches must have extra accessibility. To be compliant, the parking lot is also required to have appropriate signage, ramps, and other details. Our paving experts are very familiar with the rules and regulations and can guide your business with making sure the parking lot remains ADA compliant.

Reflective Marking and Signage

The lines in your parking lot and proper placement of the signage are very important but you may want to consider pavement markers. If someone is driving through the parking lot at night in low light, pavement markers help them identify where they are and keeps everyone safe in the lot.
