How to Prepare Your Church Lot in Time for the Holidays

October, 19, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
At Cassidy Paving we know that your church is often focused on giving back through the community throughout the year instead of doing preventative maintenance to the parking lot. With the holiday season fast approaching, now is the time to think about any repairs that you have been holding off on before everyone becomes too busy. Before your large holiday gatherings, let’s work together to make your parking lot an accessible and beautiful addition to your building. Here are the top things you should focus your parking lot fund on before your congregation packs your building.

Fix Cracks and Potholes

One of the most noticeable things to any building, even your church, is the parking lot. People often get first impressions from the condition of the lot. Potholes and cracks that are left unrepaired for any length of time will get larger and become more of a liability for you. We want to help you to provide a safe parking option for your congregation. Before the holiday crowds descend on your church, give a paving contractor a call to address any deterioration throughout your asphalt pavement. In Massachusetts, we experience extreme winter weather that causes asphalt to expand and contract. If your potholes and cracks aren’t fixed before this time, the thaw/freeze cycle will severely exacerbate these issues. The sooner you fix them, the more money you can save.

Restripe If Needed

Restriping is important to the flow of traffic around your church. We know that the holidays often bring many out of town guests, so don’t leave them feeling confused about where they can safely park. If it has been a while since your parking lot stripes were painted and/or they are severely faded, it is time to think about a restriping service. In the event of a blinding snowstorm, with the proper painted lines and reflective materials, your church family will still be able to maneuver as needed throughout the property. You also want to make sure that you make the appropriate amount of handicap accessible parking and it follows ADA guidelines for safe access.

Sealcoat Your Lot

Another way you can help your parking lot remain in its best shape throughout the holiday season is to get it sealed. Sealcoating is very important to preserving the functionality and appearance of a freshly applied blacktop. Even if your asphalt isn’t newly applied, we can sealcoat to maintain its current condition. After repairing potholes and cracks, sealcoating is a smart next step to keeping your parking lot intact throughout the winter. This is an undeniable way of preparing your church lot in time for the holidays this year.
