Here at AAA Top Quality Asphalt, we want to help you do what’s best for your business, and a big part of that is helping you maintain your facilities. Specifically, our team is here to help you keep your parking lot in good repair, as the condition of your parking infrastructure has a significant impact on your ability to keep your operation running smoothly. Whether you want to make a good first impression on customers or you need to keep the pavement smooth for your company vehicles, here are three key steps for effective parking lot maintenance that will help you do just that.
- Inspection. Effective parking lot maintenance starts with regular inspection. We recommend that you walk around your lot every few months and take a good look at the state of the asphalt, checking for any cracks or damage. Once cracks appear in asphalt paving, they will only get worse over time, but this progression can be slowed down significantly with prompt intervention. Because of this, spotting cracks early is essential for extending the life of your parking lot.
- Crack Filling. When you notice cracks in your lot, the next part of parking lot maintenance is to call our team for crack filling services. As its name suggests, this process involves injecting an asphalt emulsion into any gaps or cracks, which supports the surrounding pavement and helps prevent further deterioration.
- Sealcoating. The third step in effective parking lot maintenance is regular sealcoating. This process gives the asphalt a protective layer that helps prevent water penetration, oxidation, and even oil leaks, all of which can reduce the overall lifespan of the pavement. Most experts recommend renewing your sealcoating every 3-5 years, but you can ask our experts to provide a more specific timeline for your particular lot.
