What does your parking lot need?

The most common types of repair and maintenance for parking lots to extend the life of the pavement include:

  1. Sealcoating: This is the process of applying a protective coating to asphalt-based pavements to provide a layer of protection from the elements: water, oils, and U.V. damage. Typically, it is recommended that asphalt surfaces be sealcoated every two to three years, depending on the level of wear and tear.
  2. Crack Sealing/Filling: Over time, due to various factors such as thermal expansion and contraction, water infiltration, and heavy loads, cracks may develop in the pavement. It’s essential to fill these cracks as soon as they appear to prevent them from growing and causing more significant damage. There are different types of crack fillers, including hot-applied and cold-applied ones, which are chosen based on the type and size of the crack.
  3. Pothole Repair: Potholes are both a safety hazard and an aesthetic issue. They usually form due to water seeping into the pavement through cracks and then expanding when it freezes. There are various methods for pothole repair, such as throw-and-roll, semi-permanent, spray injection, and full-depth patching. The method chosen often depends on the size and severity of the pothole.
  4. Line Striping: Over time, parking lot lines can fade due to weather conditions and general wear and tear. Regular re-striping is necessary for maintaining a safe and organized parking lot. It’s also an opportunity to reassess the layout and make changes to improve traffic flow or increase parking capacity.
  5. Drainage Maintenance: Proper drainage is crucial for the longevity of a parking lot. If water pools on the asphalt, it can infiltrate the surface and cause damage. Regular inspections and maintenance of catch basins, drain inlets, and other drainage structures help prevent these issues.
  6. Sweeping and Cleaning: Regular sweeping and cleaning can help extend the life of a parking lot by removing debris that can damage the surface over time. It also enhances the overall appearance and safety of the parking lot.

All of these are part of a proactive maintenance strategy that can significantly extend the life of a parking lot, saving money in the long term by delaying costly full-scale repaving.
