Even after a mild winter in the upper Midwest, driving and parking surfaces take a beating. What might have been tiny cracks in October have been under constant assault by wind, rain, snow, and ice, are now larger cracks and holes. Edges that were showing signs of fraying are now crumbling. Damage done to parking surfaces is not to be taken lightly. The deterioration of a parking surface can quickly become a safety hazard, which takes them from an eyesore to a true problem. Seal King has earned the reputation for being the leading driveway and parking sealcoating company by performing
We all know that most small businesses fail within the first year of opening their doors. Starting a business is not easy and keeping a business open may even be more difficult. Once the business is up and running, it takes enormous effort to keep it successfully operating. Investments must be made in high quality products, high quality service, and working to keep both customers and employees happy. All of the efforts that go into maintaining a healthy business make profitability a tantalizing, but sometimes not attainable, goal. One way business owners can work to become profitable is to demonstrate to potential customers that their places of business are committed to providing their customers with a positive and appealing commercial experience. Professionally sealcoating your business’ driveway, sidewalks and parking lot is one of those such investments, and a relatively low-cost investment at that.
Are you thinking about selling a commercial or residential property? If so, you are probably thinking about doing a major clean up, maybe purging some items you do not want to move and, of course, thinking about ways to get the best possible price for your property. Curb appeal is one very important part of selling a home or property. You want to make sure that the first impression of potential buyers is a good one.
Your driveway and/or any asphalt surfaces that lead to your property can be an eyesore if it is cracked or discolored and it can even be a safety hazard.
It is once again the season we all look forward to: Spring. In the upper Midwest, it may take some extra time for real spring to arrive, but there is no doubt that we are coming out of the ravages of winter and into the time when it is once again possible to be outside and make improvements to our homes. Even with a relatively mild winter, this part of the country still experiences extremes of temperature and weather. So even if your driveway has not
Now is the time of year when our thoughts turn from winter property maintenance to springtime improvements – like planting flowers or painting your driveway! After a harsh winter, you can help restore your property back to its former glory by applying driveway sealcoating.
Sealcoating involves applying a thin layer of sealing liquid over an asphalt surface to protect it against weather damage caused by rain, snow, sunlight, and vehicle fluids. While it won’t repair existing cracks in your driveway
If you drive the roads of Minnesota, you are already well acquainted with the concept of a pothole. Potholes can be found on every driving surface in the state, and on some roads, potholes seem to cover more surface area than smooth asphalt does. Potholes occur on all roads, but they occur faster in climates that have a wide range of temperature accompanied by snow, rain, and occasional ice storms. Precipitation, whether it falls in liquid or crystallized form, is all water. Water is considered the universal solvent.
Oil spots can be a real headache for driveway or parking lot owners. Not only are they difficult to remove, but they’re also unsightly – staining asphalt surfaces or creating potholes in pavement. A seal coating treatment will protect your investment in paving by shielding it from oil spots. But what if there’s oil on asphalt?
Cleaning fresh oil slicks/stains: At this point, the oil has only stained the pavement and can be removed through surface cleaning.
Your driveway is under constant stress from the elements, and in Minnesota, the elements tend to add something extra to the mix. What that means is that driveways take a beating. It is one thing to withstand the weight and friction of vehicles that weigh multiple thousands of pounds, but Minnesota’s weather adds insult to injury with its massive annual temperature ranges and the intensity created by rain, snow, and ice. We have come a long way from the days when homeowners considered it an upgrade to go from dirt parking areas to gravel
Many businesses, trying to gain an advantage over their competitors, will make claims about their products or services matching or being better than the industry leader’s products or services. Seal King is one of those industry leaders that is often used as a comparison point for competitors who simply cannot match our quality, but who keep trying to persuade customers that they can. So, what is it that makes Seal King different–and by ‘different,’ we mean better–than our competitors? First, we start with better raw materials. The mixture of concentrated sealer, water, coal slag, blackening agents, and other additives is fairly standard across the asphalt sealant industry
Many people anticipate winter to make driving to work more challenging, with potholes often appearing due to snowfall that causes major disruptions in our daily lives. Severe snowstorms not only leave roads messy, but they also expose asphalt pavement to cracks and potholes – leaving homeowners, businesses, and municipalities with few options for preventive maintenance from these cracks and potholes. But what can residential homeowners, associations, businesses, and municipalities do about it?
