Your asphalt parking lot maintenance represents a significant capital investment, so you naturally want to prolong its life and maximize your return. In addition, you would like your property to have curb appeal and have a parking lot that presents a pleasing appearance to all who visit. Professional asphalt parking lot maintenance can help you achieve your goals through protection and beautification.
Maintain your parking lot. It will last longer.
Asphalt parking lot maintenance procedures offer the most benefits if they are begun within the first 12 months of pavement installation.
However, maintenance can help extend the life and improve the appearance of your parking lot regardless of when you start. The condition and age of your parking lot determine the exact services you will need, both now and in the future, but the following are the most common maintenance services for asphalt parking lots:
- Sealcoating: Sealcoating is one of the most economical and effective maintenance procedures you can choose for your asphalt parking lot. Sealants restore the asphalt’s color and smooth minor pavement imperfections, enhancing the appearance of your parking lot. Sealcoating also helps protect your pavement from damages caused by UV rays, automotive fluids, water penetration and oxidation.
- Crack and Pothole Repair: Cracks and potholes in asphalt allow water to penetrate beneath the pavement and erode the foundation. Without a strong foundation, the asphalt pavement can begin to collapse. The result can be extensive damage that is costly to correct.
- Pavement Markings: Fresh pavement markings improve the appearance of your parking lot and make it safer for your visitors. Parking lot striping helps drivers recognize where each space begins and ends. Marked crosswalks help keep pedestrians safe when they walk from their cars to your front door. Directional arrows help drivers recognize how the traffic should flow. Other markings, such as those indicating handicapped-accessible parking spaces or fire lanes, may be required to meet federal or local regulations.
