Spring is here, and winter is on its way out. Unfortunately, the arrival of beautiful weather doesn’t undo all the damage that winter can wreak on parking lots and driveways. There’s a lot that can go wrong for your asphalt in the winter. If you have an asphalt surface which has seen better days, spring is the right time for you to get new asphalt laid down.
Put Your Best Foot Forward
Your commercial parking lot is one of the first things people see when they visit your building. After the rigors of winter, it’s likely your pavement is showing some signs of wear and tear. By laying down asphalt you can have a brand new application to catch the eye whenever someone new shows up.
The Temperature is On Your Side
The application process for asphalt paving requires the asphalt to be kept at a very high temperature. This becomes more difficult in cold weather months, which means the job can not be done as effectively. In addition to complications which can affect the appearance of your lot, it also can increase your costs due to paying for more labor hours.
Sealcoating Can Extend Its Life
Your lot may not even need a full reapplication of asphalt if damages to it are not severe, and asphalt paving experts can help you determine if that is the case. If you are beginning to experience minor issues with your driveway or lot, such as cracking, but the damage is not extreme, a sealcoat may be the best way to go. It fills in any weak points to prevent further deterioration and allows your current paving to continue functioning for longer.
