For business owners and industrial customers, your parking lot is a big part of your first impression. A parking lot can make or break your business. Cassidy Paving encourages you to improve and keep up the maintenance on your parking lot so that it doesn’t give your employees, customers and guests, the people that matter the most to you, the wrong idea. Finding a contractor that understands how to improve your parking lot within your timeframe and budget is the most important step in the process. Read on to see the simple ways we can help you can improve your parking lot while keeping your patrons and employees safe.

How to Improve a Parking Lot

Fix Cracks and Potholes

If potholes and cracks are prevalent throughout your parking lot, it is time to call in a professional. The best thing you can do for the safety of the drivers of your lot and diminish your liability is to fix issues with your asphalt pavement in a timely manner. Asphalt Magazine explains that “pavement distresses accumulate as asphalt pavements age and traffic pounds them. If timely maintenance isn’t performed, distresses are compounded. Cracks become potholes and potholes become craters”. Don’t wait to call in our experts because the longer you wait, the bigger the repair will be and the more it will cost you.

Have a Cleaning Schedule

Yes, even your parking lot needs to have a thorough cleaning every now and then. Not only does cleaning give your parking lot a facelift, but it helps keep the asphalt pavement in its best condition. Grime, dirt, and other debris left on asphalt for a long period of time can cause erosion and deterioration. Having a parking lot free of stains helps make the best first impression. Also, it contributes to the safety of drivers in your lot since they are able to see markings without obstruction. At Cassidy Paving, we offer deep cleaning services as needed, and as a part of your yearly inspection and maintenance.

Apply Sealcoating and then Reapply as Needed

The best way to improve your asphalt parking lot is to protect it from the elements with a sealcoat. If it has never had a sealcoat you will find that the initial application gives your parking lot an immediate facelift. The shiny and smooth new top surface will make the drive look and feel smoother. Mechanically it will keep water from permeating the layers and causing cracks and potholes, to begin with. It will also keep the sun’s UV rays from causing damage. The initial application to your parking lot should last anywhere from 1-3 years. Our team will come out to inspect it yearly and give you an update on the timeline of your sealcoat.
