Asphalt Maintenance for Parking Lots
Ensure Longevity with Regular Asphalt Maintenance for Parking Lots
Relentless abuse from Mother Nature and vehicle-related wear-and-tear can take a toll on asphalt over time, making regular asphalt maintenance for parking lots key to safeguarding the long-term use of your parking area. Done properly and regularly, there’s nothing a well-maintained parking lot can’t withstand.
Are You Inviting Asphalt Damage to Your Parking Lot?
Allowing wear to worsen unaddressed can lead to bigger problems down the road. Be on the lookout for:
Seemingly minor cracks can lead to a great deal of damage as moisture and harmful substances infiltrate the base layers of asphalt, breaking it down.
- Pits & potholes
As cracks worsen and deepen, pits and potholes can form over time.
A faded gray or brown appearance indicates sun or chemical damage.
- A ‘sand-like’ appearance
Loose gravel/sand indicates a breakdown of the asphalt binding.
Regular Asphalt Maintenance Delivers Lasting Parking Lot Performance
Though some wear is inevitable, when cracks and pits are properly and promptly addressed, the lifespan of your parking lot can be extended at very little cost. Topped off with a durable sealcoating, these repairs and the underlying asphalt structure will be safeguarded against the effects of sunlight, moisture, and chemicals like dripping oil, helping your asphalt easily withstand daily abuse.
