One of the most important ways to attract and retain tenants in your commercial property is to maintain curb appeal. Although asphalt has a life of 20 to 25 years, most times mainteinance is required to keep it looking and feeling smooth while people walk and drive over it on a daily basis.
This preventative maintenance procedure, is the first defense against deterioration. It keeps water from entering and weakening the base. It also helps keep dirt, sand, and stone from entering the crack which can cause compressive stresses. Sealing cracks will help double the lifespan of your asphalt.
Line striping helps keep up the overall apperance of your lot and ensures tenants can easily identify where to park and how to properly travel while on your property. Without it, there is no structure or guidance for your tenants which can lead to vehicles needing to be towed, fire department issues and even accidents. Having parking lots lines, directional arrows, handicap signs and curbs painted can save you alot of time, money and unwanted stress.
Think of sealcoating Asphalt as preventative maintenance for your parking lot similiar to how you would paint a building to keep the weather from deteriorating the material. Sealcoating helps protect the asphalt from harmful effects such as gasoline, oil, as well as UV rays from the sun. It also acts as a waterproofing agent, hiding small cracks, patches and rough spots which can all break down the asphalt. This is a low-cost way of maintaining your parking lot which can help you save on those costly asphalt repairs.
Although you try your best to maintain your parking lot, there comes a time when you need to repair your asphalt. The fact of the matter is that cracks left untended become potholes. Potholes not repaired or patched poorly, will force you to repair the asphalt. With a seamless repair, the patch bonds to the existing surface which leaves no joints for water to penetrate. Drying quickly, the patch can be driven on almost immediately after installation. By repairing the asphalt, you help reduce the trip & fall liabilites and potential lawsuits.
