How to Maintain A Parking Lot: From New Construction To Routine Repairs
First impressions are lasting impressions. Does you parking lot make a good first impression?
Landscaping, painting, lighting, and exterior building appearance says a lot about an owner’s commitment to continuous maintenance. The condition of your parking lots and roads do too. In order to keep your asphalt and concrete in pristine condition, it must be maintained on a regular basis. By having a paving maintenance plan in place, you can save yourself from costly repairs and safety issues down the road.
What repairs are needed for a parking lot?
Parking lot repairs will vary depending on the amount of damage that is currently there. If there are cracks throughout your lot, those will need to be patched up. According to the Pavement Preservation & Recycling Alliance, 75% of unsealed cracks develop into potholes within 3 years while only 1% of sealed cracks develop into potholes in the same timeframe. Crack sealing may be the best option to fix those cracks. With this undertaking, we will go in and fill in those cracks to ensure that they do not expand any more. Crack sealing plays a significant role in extending the life of your pavement as it can add on 3-5 years.
After any cracks have been mended, we also recommend sealcoating your asphalt. Sealcoating will provide a protective layer to your pavement, helping to preserve it from harsh weather and UV rays, therefore extending the life of your lot. We recommend that you sealcoat your pavement every 3 years or whenever you start to notice the pavement turning to a grey color.
