About Sealcoatings

Introduction

Commercial properties are a valuable investment. Maintaining their value entails ensuring their long-term aesthetic appeal and functional integrity. One of the commonly overlooked maintenance practices for commercial properties involves the use of sealcoatings, a protective barrier for asphalt surfaces. This comprehensive guide will offer insights on the process, costs, and benefits of sealcoatings. Understanding this could bring you a step closer to preserving the value of your property, particularly if it boasts a broad asphalt surface area like a driveway or parking lot.

What is a Sealcoating?

A sealcoating, or seal coat, is a thin liquid layer applied over a concrete or asphalt surface to protect it from damage caused by UV rays, rain, and fluids from cars such as oils, antifreeze, and gasoline. Not only does sealcoating enhance the look of your driveway or parking lot by giving it a fresh, non-faded look, but it also extends its life by providing a protective shell against damaging elements. Engaging a sealcoating company carries the potential to save you significant repair costs over time.

The Sealcoating Process

Sealcoating involves a multi-step process that commences with the thorough cleaning of the surface to remove debris, oils, and any existing loose seal coat materials. Afterwards, any existing cracks are filled to ensure a smooth and level finish. The actual sealcoating process begins by applying the sealcoat material using sprayers, brushes, or squeegees depending on the job at hand. Generally, the sealcoat needs 24 to 48 hours to dry, but this could vary based on the environmental conditions and the type of sealcoat used.

Benefits of Sealcoating

Driveway sealcoating brings a plethora of benefits. Firstly, it extends the lifespan of your asphalt surface by protecting it from harmful elements, thereby saving you the cost and hassle of frequent repavements. Secondly, sealcoating enhances the look of your property by replenishing its faded finish, giving your driveway a brand-new look. Lastly, a well-sealed driveway offers increased traction, reducing the hazard of slips and falls, especially in wet conditions. Engaging driveway sealers contractors or sealing driveway contractors are one sure way of reaping these benefits.

Choosing a Sealcoating Company

Finding a reliable sealcoating company can be daunting. When selecting a contractor, consider their reputation, years of experience, and guarantees on their work. Ask for references and do your due diligence by checking reviews and testimonials by past clients. Compare quotes from different sealing driveway companies but remember, the cost should not sacrifice the quality of work.

Asphalt Sealcoating Cost

The asphalt sealcoating cost varies depending on several factors. These include the size and condition of the surface to be sealed, the type and amount of sealcoat material used, labor cost, and any additional repair work needed prior to the sealcoating. You can request a quote from driveway sealcoating contractors to get a good idea of the potential costs.

Local Optimization and Contractors

When considering sealcoating for your commercial property, choosing local contractors can provide many advantages. Local contractors are likely to be familiar with the local climate and environmental factors, ensuring that the sealcoating job is carried out using the most suitable materials and techniques. Additionally, they are likely to be more responsive and easier to contact for any follow-up services required.

Conclusion

Sealcoating is a valuable addition to the maintenance routine of any commercial property with asphalt surfaces, such as driveways or parking lots. It enhances aesthetics, increases safety, and offers significant long-term cost savings by prolonging the life of the asphalt. With careful selection of a reliable sealcoating company, you can ensure your property remains pristine and valuable for years to come.

About Center Line, Michigan

History

Historically, the land that Center Line came to occupy was swamp and wilderness until the early nineteenth century. As land became scarce, French, German, Belgian, and Irish immigrants began clearing the forests and draining the swamps. Center Line was known as “Kunrod’s Corner” during the mid-nineteenth century. The theory is that the French named it “Center Line” because it was the middle of three Potawatomi trails from Fort Detroit to northern trading posts. The “center line” was the trail used from Detroit to Utica. The community received its initial start when Catholics decided to build a church so that they would not have to walk to St. Mary’s in Detroit for Sunday Mass. This church (St. Clement’s) was established in 1854 and attracted more Catholic settlers into the area. In 1863, the first general store was constructed by Joeseph Buechel. On July 19, 1878, Hieronymous Engelmann was the first postmaster, and he was succeeded in 1885 by Sophia Buechel. The “Centre Line” post office closed on July 31, 1906, and the name was restored to Center Line thereafter. In this era, street car tracks connected Detroit to Center Line along Van Dyke Road, and Ten Mile Road was the final stop of the street car. The village was incorporated in 1925 in the center of Warren Township, which is now the city of Warren, and was incorporated as a city in 1936.
