Sealcoating & Striping Services
Commercial Asphalt Sealcoating
You would never spend good money on a beautiful new home and then allow the outside elements to destroy it. So why are you letting the sunlight, weather and traffic destroy your parking lot? Just as you paint the dap-boards on a new house to seal up and protect the structure, sealcoating a sound pavement will cause it to have a much longer life than that of an unsealed pavement. Even on a weak pavement, sealcoating will preserve the elastic and adhesive characteristics of the asphaltic binder and seal out the water and oxidizing effects of the sun, salts, and petroleum spillage. Sealcoating preserves the pavement surface, and the asphaltic and aggregate layers will remain dry and in place.
WHAT IS ECO-SAFE SEALCOATING? First, there are two predominant types of sealcoating emulsion materials used in the USA. COAL TAR SEALCOATING This type of sealer is a clay stabilized coal tar emulsion with complicated PAH molecules that is designed to protect asphalt pavement. ASPHALT BASED SEALCOATING This type of asphalt sealing is a mineral reinforced asphalt emulsion with specialty surfactants hat is designed to protect asphalt pavement.
Parking Lot Striping
The importance of Parking Lot Striping is easy to prove. The next time you drive into your facility, look at the parking lot. See the cars and the lot – not from your normal point of view – but from the customers’ point of view. Is it easy to see where to turn, where to park, how to exit? Is it safe to drive in your parking lot? You’ve got a beautiful building, a well trained staff, a web site that knocks their socks off. Why on earth would you have a confusing parking lot that doesn’t do the same? The painted surface of your parking lot is one of the most noticeable parts of your business. It sets the tone for your customer’s entire interaction with your business. Fresh crisp lines tell your customers that your business is run well and cares about their safety.

Residential Driveway Sealing
You have heard and seen of all the scams out there about residential driveway sealing companies. They make the news every year by over promising what they can do, they never give you what you pay for, and they always charge more in the end than they originally quoted you. The residential market is inundated by low quality, uninsured, inexperienced, scam artists. That is why, Exterior Maintenance Service, LLC has stayed out of the residential sealcoating market all these years. However, all of our commercial customers have asked, and asked us to seal their personal driveways.

We all know about parking lot signs, parking lot speed bumps, but what the heck is a bollard? So glad you asked! According to Wikipedia, a bollard is a short vertical post. Originally it meant a post used on a ship or a quay, principally for mooring. The word now also describes a variety of structures to control or direct road traffic, such as posts arranged in a line to obstruct the passage of motor vehicles.
Concrete Repair & Installation
Concrete is a huge part of your curb appeal and public safety. Concrete is usually used to repair parking lots, sidewalks, stairs, curbs, gutters, parking bumpers, dumpster pads, dock pads, catch basins, walls and ramps. It offers outstanding durability and longevity, if you have proper installation, well-designed site structures and regular maintenance.
Hot Crack Sealing
THERE ARE THREE TYPES AND CAUSES OF ASPHALT CRACKING. Shrinkage: this is usually found in asphalt parking lots and driveways. These are normally interconnected, forming a series of blocks with sharp corners or angles. The causes of this type of cracking are usually lack of traffic, deterioration of the base, and/or extreme temperature changes. Reflective: this is usually found in asphalt overlays. This is almost always caused by vertical or horizontal movements of the pavement beneath due to expansion and contraction with temperature and moisture changes. Joint: this is a longitudinal separation along the seams of the paving. This type of crack is caused by a weak seam or an improper pinch roll.
