YOU BET YOUR ASPHALT – Spring and Summer are The Best times to Maintain your Pavement. Here’s Why.

Spring Repairs

As the warmth of the sun begins to bring the delights of outdoor activities, imagining the outdoor spring task list gets even more realYou may have already begun to notice changes the cold weather made to your business. If you haven’t been keeping track of the additional chores, now is the best time to jump on these to-do repairs. 

Because the ground is warming up, noticing small cracks expanding in your asphalt is typical at this time of yearThese cracks can turn into potholes  or allow the base under the asphalt top to wash out. Because you can’t see what is happening underneath the top asphalt coat, now is the time to make repairs.  

Imagine a freshly repaired coat of asphalt. It’s a lot better to imagine than the liability of a bad lot for you and your customers. Why wait for additional damage? Let’s inspect, analyze, and see the best ways to prepare your asphalt for the summer! 

Spring Inspection

As you look ahead to summer, it is important to inspect your pavement for winter damage as early as possible so that needed repair can be scheduled. Defects and issues with the pavement will become very evident shortly after, or during rain. Your professional paving company can do an extensive inspection of your parking lot to determine exactly what issues are occurring and how to remedy them. 

Instead of feeling dread over what a repair may cost, have your asphalt paving pro inspect your lot damage. There are many different repairs to consider. Your asphalt repair guy will know the best solution for your lot. They will be able to guide you through the process of hot-asphalt patch repair, crack sealing, or seal coating. 

Getting Your Best Bang for the Buck

Crack repair is the best bang for your buck when considering asphalt maintenance. Large pavement issues often begin with very small cracks within a pavement’s surface. By maintaining and fixing cracks in the surface, you can avoid larger, more costly problems that are associated with leaving a crack untreated. Plus, crack filling is a relatively inexpensive maintenance service, often less than a buck per linear foot. For all its preventative benefits, there is no better single service that can extend the life of your pavement investment. 

Warm Weather Advantage for Your Paved Surface

Warmer ambient and surface temperatures allow for optimal drying and curing time. Ambient refers to the temperature of the air, while surface is the temperature of the application surface itself. The higher the temperature the faster evaporation, and thus dry time.  

Spring and summer temperatures promote a more durable, high-quality paving project. This is especially true if you have more extensive maintenance issues like edge repairs, potholes, or a rough and pitted surface. 

Spring Seal Coating - Back in Black

Parking lot line painting pavement markings, ada parking regulations

Well-managed and sealed pavement may not only last longer, but it also looks better. Aesthetics is something to consider for your business before more people head out during the warmer weather. A brand-new look can be attractive for business, at the same time, protecting your investment from the summer elements, heavy vehicle traffic, and vehicle leaks. 

Spring Line Striping - Don't let your business fade

Winter weather and salt can cause parking lot lines to fade. Fresh line striping in the spring or early summer will make sure they stay vibrant throughout the busy summer months. Regular parking lot line painting is beneficial and important for several reasons like; safety, maximization of space, curb appeal, and meeting ADA regulations. At a minimum, you should be re-striping your parking lot every other year.
