Although working remotely is now a routine for many, there are still some things at the office you should think about. Even though you’re not looking at your building every day and driving to work, there’s still a need to keep your parking lot paving operational and safe for those who do use it. Cassidy Paving is here to help keep your asphalt parking lot in workable condition for the time when everyone can safely come back into the office. Here are some things that you still need to have on your asphalt to-do list as spring nears.
How to Ensure Your Parking Lot Is Safe
Schedule an Inspection
If you’ve been working from home over the past several months you may not be as familiar with the condition of your parking lot as you once were. Our commercial asphalt paving crew can go out to inspect your parking lot even during the winter months in order to expedite the springtime repair process. If you have not thought about or had the time to address any outstanding issues with your parking lot, you may have some asphalt repairs that need professional attention. The New England winters can be especially harsh on porous materials such as asphalt due to the freeze-thaw cycle. The expansion and contraction that your parking lot goes through during this time can wreak havoc. Even if your schedule means you’ll be working remotely for the foreseeable future, Cassidy Paving can visit your property and give you a complete report on the repairs we deem necessary for the safety and operability of your parking lot.
Get a Repair Plan
Once we get to take a look at your parking lot, there will be some typical repairs you can expect to be recommended. We often see unevenness, cracks, and asphalt potholes of varying degrees, especially if left untreated for an extended time. Asphalt Magazine details the common types of distresses and their reasons include “cracking; distortion; disintegration; skidding hazards; and surface treatment distresses. Some of the typical causes of pavement deterioration include traffic loading; environment or climate influences; drainage deficiencies; materials quality problems; construction deficiencies; and external contributors, such as utility cuts”. If we find any of these issues they will be included in your detailed parking lot repair plan.
Restripe as Needed
Another asphalt service that we recommend for customers that anticipate returning to the office sometime in the near future is restriping. After the past year, your parking lot lines may not be in the best shape for a return of all of your employees to the office. This is a way to limit your liability due to increased safety for drivers and pedestrians. It is also a great way to maintain your business’s curb appeal.
