Let’s dive into the world of seal coating application and discover how Big Easy Asphalt can help safeguard your asphalt investment.

Spraying Techniques for Applying Seal Coating

  • Spraying is one of the most widely used techniques for applying seal coating, particularly for larger areas such as parking lots or driveways. Big Easy Asphalt employs state-of-the-art spraying equipment and skilled professionals to achieve a seamless and uniform application. Here are some key factors to consider when using spraying techniques:
  • Equipment and Calibration: We understand the significance of using high-quality spray equipment that ensures consistent product flow and even distribution. Our team maintains and calibrates our spraying machines regularly to achieve accurate coverage.
  • Surface Preparation: Before spraying seal coating, it is crucial to properly prepare the asphalt surface. This includes cleaning the area thoroughly, removing debris, repairing cracks, and ensuring a smooth and level surface. Big Easy Asphalt’s experts meticulously prepare the asphalt to achieve optimal adhesion and longevity.
  • Application Process: Our professionals apply the seal coating in a systematic manner, starting from one end and moving in a controlled, overlapping pattern. This method ensures uniform coverage, minimizing the chances of missed spots or uneven thickness.

Brushing and Squeegee Methods for Smaller Areas

For smaller areas or intricate sections that require more precision, Big Easy Asphalt employs brushing and squeegee methods. These techniques allow for greater control and are highly effective when dealing with tight corners, curbs, or irregular surfaces. Here’s why our team utilizes these methods:

  • Brushing Technique: Using high-quality brushes, our experts apply the seal coating by hand, ensuring thorough coverage even in hard-to-reach areas. Brushing allows for precise application and enables our team to address specific problem areas, such as cracks or joints, with utmost attention.
  • Squeegee Method: The squeegee method involves applying the seal coating with a rubber squeegee tool. This technique offers excellent control over the amount of material applied and enables our professionals to achieve a consistent thickness. The squeegee method is particularly useful for ensuring an even layer on smaller, uneven surfaces.

Proper Application Thickness and Coverage Considerations

At Big Easy Asphalt, we adhere to industry best practices to ensure optimal application thickness and coverage. Here are some key considerations:

  • Manufacturer’s Recommendations: Our team carefully follows the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding the recommended thickness of the seal coating. This ensures that the asphalt surface receives adequate protection without compromising its integrity.
  • Traffic and Climate Factors: We take into account the anticipated traffic volume and the prevailing climate conditions in determining the appropriate thickness. Heavy traffic areas or regions with extreme weather patterns may require thicker applications to withstand the demands of the environment.
  • Multiple Layers: In some cases, applying multiple layers of seal coating may be necessary. This approach provides added protection and helps to compensate for any initial thin spots or surface irregularities.

The work Big Easy Asphalt did for me was quick and efficient. They put down a nice layer of asphalt so my dad’s tractors have more space, which means he can store things inside without worrying about them being covered by dirt or grasses! The guy who did the job kept me updated throughout every step in order to make sure everything went smoothly. Highly recommended!
