What are the benefits to maintaining your parking lot? In most cases your parking lot is the first thing your customers/employees see approaching your property. A nicely maintained lot makes a great first impression, adding image to your brand. It also shows that you offer care and safety for both your customers and employees.
More benefits include:
It is highly recommended to have your asphalt sealcoated after 3-6 months of the asphalt being paved and maintaining it with a new sealcoat every 2-4 years after. There are so many great benefits to sealcoat your parking lot, starting with protecting it from Canada’s intense weather conditions. Oxygen, water and any sort of moisture seeps into the small air pockets and cracks of the asphalt, which then erodes the ground beneath the asphalt causing larger cracks, potholes and can lead to needing the section completely replaced with new gravel and asphalt. A sealcoat will fill in all small cracks and air pockets preventing this damage from happening, and will also provide an attractive matte black finish to your parking lot.
The sun's ultraviolet rays can age our skin and can do the exact same thing with your asphalt. Our intense humid days along with the sunrays cause oxidation, which will result in deterioration. Just like our skin, our asphalt needs a sunblock to prevent harmful UV rays from aging the asphalt. Gas, oil and other substances can erode your asphalt causing serious damages. A seal coat acts as a barrier to prevent these substances from seeping into your asphalt.
Hot rubber crack sealing is the #1 most important step to take to further prevent serious damages to your lot. Here are a few facts about your cracks: - Small and large cracks allow moisture into your asphalt, creating a larger area full of cracks. We refer to these as “alligator cracks”. - Larger cracks allow the water and moisture to go directly to the base underneath the asphalt creating even larger cracks and worse potholes.
The solution? We go over your cracks with a gas powered cleaner that targets the inside of the cracks cleaning out all debris that is stuck in the crack, along with chipping away any loose asphalt. We then go over your cracks using an applicator that pours in our hot rubberized crack seal that will fill the cracks up to prevent any further damage, saving you thousands of dollars in the future compared to replacing with new asphalt!
Does your parking lot have potholes, sink holes, or too many cracks to count? Sometimes with these issues, a simple fix won’t cut it, and the entire section of the problem has to be replaced. What we can do is remove all of the existing asphalt targeted in these areas, followed by replacing the base to give the new asphalt a solid base to settle on. We then pour in the new asphalt and level it back to the grade of your parking lot. The asphalt is then compacted and now your major issue has been transformed into a brand new replacement of asphalt!
