Commercial Seal Coating
Why Should You SealCoat?
Having your asphalt professionally sealed will greatly extend the life of your parking lot and create an amazing curb appeal. Sealcoating protects against oxidization by restoring the asphalts natural oils, which maintain the composition and structural integrity. Sealcoating your asphalt also helps your asphalt resist chemical spills such as gas, antifreeze and oil leaks which break down the asphalts structural bonds. By sealing your asphalt, you will enhance the appearance of your property, creating more value on resale, while also protecting your investment. Sealcoating in conjunction with crack repair is guaranteed to significantly extend the life of your asphalt investment while reducing your long-term asphalt maintenance costs.
Asphalt oxides over time, which makes it lose its natural oils and become brittle. With harsh Canadian winters, brittle asphalt is susceptible to cracking and pitting. Sealcoating adds the natural oils back to the asphalt, which is needed for its pliability to be able to expand and contract with the changing seasons and protect against harmful sunrays.
A premium quality 100 % oil/tar based sealer called Blackmac, bought directly from McAsphalt Industries, a leading supplier of asphalt based products. Only Blackmac oil-based sealer will protect your asphalt as it is manufactured with bitumen, the same organic semi-solid matter used to make asphalt. Do not settle for cheap, water-based, acrylic paints, sold by department stores and sprayed by some contractors. These products can actually increase the damage as well as your long term costs. When it comes to protecting your asphalt, Blackmac is the only option.
Our sealcoat maintenance process includes cleaning the asphalt in preparation for an evenly sprayed application of sealer. The perimeter of the asphalt is trimmed of vegetation and then the asphalt is power swept and blown clean of dirt and debris. Oil and gas stains are pretreated with spot primer in order to ensure proper adhesion. If crack repair is required they are filled before the sealing. All bricks, interlock walkways and exterior walls of the buildings are boarded to ensure perfect application with flawless trim. The asphalt is then sealed off with caution tape for the over night drying process. Your asphalt is ready the next day. Parking lot lines can be re-sprayed first thing in the morning drying almost instantaneously leaving your parking lot ready for customers.

Hot Pour Crack Filling
Why Crack Fill:
Asphalt cracking starts small but is one of the largest threats to your asphalt. A vital step in extending the life of your asphalt is sealing cracks in the early stages. Sealing cracks eliminates water penetration, which is the most common cause of premature asphalt deterioration. This service will offer significant savings to your long-term asphalt budget.
Untreated cracks grow over time and can eventually develop into potholes. Cracks allow moisture to penetrate the pavement base, weakening the structural integrity during seasonal freeze-thaw cycles. In the summer, weeds and grass can take root in untreated cracks and cause further damage to your asphalt. Our crack filling service provides an affordable cost-effective alternative to the inevitable asphalt replacement expenditure if cracks are left untreated.
For crack filling, Seal-A-Drive uses only premium hot pour rubberized crack injection. The rubberized crack filler is strong while remaining pliable. Our product meets provincial MTO standards and is produced by McAsphalt Industries®, an Ontario manufacturer and leading supplier of asphalt products.
We professionally clean and prepare your asphalt cracks in order to ensure a proper application is applied with the strongest adhesion possible. We clean the cracks of all debris using high pressure power blowers, heat lancers and asphalt grazers. Our product is heated and injected directly into the asphalt fractures creating a flexible seal with the existing crack walls and surrounding pavement surface. After the injection is applied it is blended in to ensure a smooth seamless adhesion. Depending on outside temperatures traffic can be reopened in as little as ten to twenty minutes.

Commercial Line Stripping
Why should you paint regularly:
Freshly painted pavement markings will enhance the overall appearance of your business and keep traffic flowing smoothly. Clearly marked parking spots and stencils create orderly parking and allows for maximum safety while ensuring municipal bylaws are being followed.
Pavement lines fade which can lead to a disorganized and dangerous parking lot. With proper markings for handicapped spots, directional arrows, fire routes, pedestrian walk ways and no parking zones, you can start your customers shopping experience on the right foot. Uncared for pavement lines can become imperceptible, leading to expensive layout costs for re-measuring and chalking. This greatly increases the maintenance cost and increases liability risks.
We spray with only MTO approved traffic paints. We use an acetone solvent-borne paint from Sherwin Williams® that is made with acetone and is VOC compliant. Solvent-borne paint have improved adhesion to oily substrates such as oil or gas stains on your parking lot. Unlike cheaper water-borne paints, solvent-borne can be applied in cooler temperatures. Solvent-borne paints dry faster and their enhanced dirt resistance makes your parking lot available sooner and looking sharp longer. In addition, we offer durable resin formulations that extend the life of lines in high-traffic areas.
We will clean your existing asphalt in preparation for an evenly-sprayed application of new yellow or white paint. We only use professional titan, airless line stripers to create razor sharp lines. This state-of-the-art equipment guarantees lines that are the proper width and applied at optimum thickness. While the lines are painted, the parking lot is sectioned off but can be opened in as little as 15 minutes after curing. If needed, we can work with property owners and managers to create new lay-outs to optimize traffic management. Whether working with your existing layout, or assisting you in developing a new layout, you can depend on our expert pavement marking team to maximize your parking spaces, keep traffic flowing smoothly, and ensuring full compliance with any local by-laws.
