Did winter take a toll on your asphalt parking lot and walkways? Snow, rain, freezing temperatures, plowing, and shoveling can leave your asphalt surfaces in need of maintenance. Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to schedule commercial paving services. Hiring an asphalt paving company is the best way to ensure your asphalt surfaces are safe and make a good first impression.
Start with a Thorough Inspection
You can inspect your asphalt surfaces yourself, but a commercial paving services company will know what to look for. While you may be able to spot obvious issues such as potholes or broken pavement, you may overlook tiny cracks and crevices. These could quickly go from a minor issue to a major repair.
Cracks in asphalt pavement will allow water to seep in and collect beneath the asphalt, impacting its integrity. If left unattended, the water will freeze and make the cracks larger when the temperature drops again. This will, increase the damage and the cost to repair it. A professional inspection and assessment of your asphalt surfaces is the best way to identify any issues that need to be addressed.
Make the Necessary Repairs
As we’ve already mentioned, making repairs now can save you money in the long run. However, that is not the only benefit. Addressing minor repairs can extend the life of your asphalt surfaces. Professional maintenance conducted by an experienced commercial paving services company can prevent you from the expense of asphalt replacement. Well-maintained asphalt can last between twenty and thirty years.
Sealcoating and Striping
Repairing cracks and potholes are only part of the asphalt maintenance a commercial paving services company can provide. Sealcoating will camouflage and protect any repairs made, giving your asphalt surfaces a smooth, continuous appearance. Sealcoating will also restore that rich black color to make your asphalt surfaces look brand new.
Commercial parking lots are striped to designated standard parking spots and those reserved for handicapped parking. Faded striping or worn-away handicapped designations will make your asphalt parking unmaintained and have a significant impact on your curb appeal. It could also cause you to fall out of ADA compliance. Parking lot striping can also include labeling loading zones, fire lanes, speed bumps, and areas where parking is prohibited.
Avoid Liability Issues
Uneven pavement caused by cracks and potholes can result in damage to vehicles or trip and fall hazards. Utilizing commercial paving services to maintain your asphalt surfaces will help to prevent accidents and injuries from taking place on your property. Neglecting asphalt maintenance will give the impression that you don’t take pride in your business or value the safety of those who patronize it. The expense of accidents or injuries could far exceed the cost of asphalt maintenance.
