Chances are that your visitors and staff use the parking lot more than any other part of your property. That is why you should hire a parking lot repair company to keep it in good condition. Because, unfortunately, small holes can quickly deteriorate into ugly blots on the premises. An asphalt maintenance professional will check for and fill cracks preventing them from expanding into large potholes.
Importance of Maintenance
Parking lots that are in an excellent condition with a smooth surface and clear stripe lines tend to last longer than those that are in bad state. Experts indicate that a parking lot that gets regular maintenance can last 25% longer than one that the owner has neglected.
The parking lot is the first part of the premises that visitors see when they come to your property or business. If the lot is full of ugly cracks and faded asphalt, clients will not get a good impression of your business. Avoid all this embarrassment by hiring a parking lot repair company. Your contractor will not only repair the cracks, potholes and faded paint, but will also apply sealcoating on the surface.
To extend the life of your parking area, apply asphalt sealcoating. Sealed surfaces are more resistant to wear and tear than the ordinary asphalt surface. Asphalt that allows water and other fluids to penetrate its surface increases the chances of cracking as the liquid expands inside the structure. The expansion causes cracks that quickly grow into unsightly and dangerous potholes.
However, sealcoating prevents liquids from permeating the asphalt, reducing the risks of cracks and erosion. Apart from preventing water penetration, sealcoating slows down oxidation and protects the surface from corrosive chemicals. Plus, it smooths the surface for easy drainage and cleaning. In the long run, it saves you the cost of repairing and replacing worn-out sections of the parking lot.
