Seal King protects and beautifies your most expensive investments. For most people, their most expensive investment is their home. If you own a home and also own and/or run a business in western Wisconsin, you may have two major investments. If your business is the brick-and-mortar type, that relies on customer traffic, a parking lot is almost always necessary to facilitate a successful business day.
If you own your own business (or manage one), your parking lot is a very important part of your customer’s experience and first impression. If your parking lot is smooth, without damage and potholes, there are no barriers to your customers entering your business and spending money. They will have a positive impression of your business. However, over time, the asphalt in your parking lot can become damaged, cracked, discolored, and potholes can form. Potholes are not only a nuisance but can be a safety hazard. This can ultimately deter your customers from frequenting your business
As another Minnesota winter approaches, now is the time to make sure that the exterior of your home or business is protected against the elements. Once the snow begins to fall and the temperatures stay below freezing for days, it can be much harder to do that preventative work around your property. Seal King is working hard right now to help homeowners and business owners just like you repair and protect your asphalt surfaces like driveways, garage aprons, sidewalks and parking lots. These areas receive foot and vehicle traffic 12 months a year. But the fact is that the winter months are even harder on these surfaces.
Now is the perfect time to have the asphalt around your property repaired. In addition to our well known residential and commercial sealcoating services, Seal King can also complete asphalt repair services for your parking lot, driveway or garage apron. When your asphalt begins to deteriorate, you will notice discoloration, small cracks (that will grow) and even potholes. This damage is caused by moisture and dirt getting underneath the asphalt over time
Seal King started out many years ago as a small, local business in Lakeville, Minnesota. We started out focusing on residential sealcoating services in 1991 and grew over the years to serve clients in Iowa and Wisconsin as well. In addition to residential sealcoating services, we also complete commercial projects, asphalt repair and garage apron repair. Our goal is to help protect the asphalt on your property from weathering, traffic and damage that can come from years of normal wear and tear. Sealcoating adds a layer of protection to your asphalt and can prevent cracks and holes that can develop.
Even the most durable materials can be affected by the Minnesota freezing winter temperatures. The asphalt in a driveway is no exception to this and is most likely to sustain damage during the long winter months. Considering that the absolute minimum temperature that sealcoating can be applied is 50oF, there are some things you can do to prepare your driveway for the season ahead of time. The professionals at Seal King want to help ensure that your driveway is ready for the Minnesota winter season and maintains its structural integrity as long as possible.
Taking care of your property is important for many reasons. If you decide to sell your property at some point, curb appeal will prove to be a driver in terms of interest and price.

First impressions are important whether you are a homeowner hosting guests, family or friends, or a business owner with customers and ongoing foot traffic.

If you own or run a business, you know how important it is to keep your property presentable. A business that pays attention to the bushes, shrubs, and grass outside of it has a better chance of establishing lasting relationships with customers. Another area to make sure to pay attention to is your parking lot. Your parking lot greets your employees and customers, and having potholes, cracks, or discoloration can give the wrong impression of your business. Seal King offers these tips for keeping up with your asphalt parking lot. Below are five tips for maintaining your parking lot.
Cleaning Up Any Spills: Likely the most common liquid spill on an asphalt parking lot is oil that drips from the cars and trucks that park in it. To avoid permanent staining or, worse, damage to the surface itself, it is important to dilute, absorb, or completely remove the offending liquid
We’ve all driven over a pothole. Potholes are not only obnoxious and frustrating, but they can also cause some real damage to your customers’ vehicles. Do you foresee your customers continuing to come visit your property when they risk ruining their vehicle every time they drive up? Additionally, there’s never a scenario where potholes get better. Until they are repaired, potholes will only get larger, more obnoxious and definitely more costly. Winter is coming soon so now is the time to repait them.
A sealant is typically used to provide a barrier of protection for a wide variety of materials. It is often used in construction projects to seal or block between building materials. A sealant is often used when it is important to prevent moisture from being transferred between surfaces and/or small openings. Similarly, a sealant can be used to protect asphalt and prevent water and dirt from getting underneath your driveway or sidewalk and causing cracks, holes or other damage. When moisture gets underneath asphalt it can decrease the strength and durability of the surface.
