End Season Sealcoating In Las Vegas
In some parts of the country, sealcoating season runs from May until October. In the Las Vegas area, the season is much longer. In fact, there will be isolated days that are conducive to sealcoating regardless of the calendar. However, even in this area, contractors have to be careful when applying sealcoating in late autumn or during the winter months.
End Season Sealcoating In Las Vegas – Conditions Required
Sealants are not formulated to be applied when temperatures are below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature of the air and the temperature of the ground must be at least 50 degrees from the time that the sealant is applied until it has fully cured. This often means that the temperature cannot fall below 50 degrees the first night after it is applied.
Another critical factor is the issue of precipitation. Admittedly, Las Vegas is one of the driest cities in the nation, but rain does occasionally fall in autumn and winter. There should be no possibility of rain until the sealcoating is completely cured.
Direct sunlight expedites the curing process, so shorter days mean longer curing times. It may not be possible to apply a second coat on the same day, requiring the contractor to mobilize a crew and equipment more than once. This can increase your costs and may result in greater disruption for your visitors, employees or customers.
Should You Have Your Pavement Sealcoated in Late Autumn or Winter?
Your sealcoating professional can tell you whether it is possible to apply sealant to your particular property on any given day. There will always be days when no reputable contractor would attempt to apply sealcoating or striping, but there are many days on which the job would be a success. Work with an honest, experienced professional and trust his or her advice.
