Is your company considering starting an industrial paving and parking lot project? Although getting the job completed may seem like the end of the process, it is often just the beginning. After all, having your industrial lot reinstalled happened for a reason. A repavement is not something regularly done, so there had to be a cause to do so. Often it is due to intense deterioration, and that can happen again if you’re not careful. Here are the things you can expect after having your industrial lot reinstalled.
What to Expect from New Paving
It Needs Time to Cure
You should be ready to delay driving on your new industrial parking lot paving for at least 24 hours after applying the blacktop. Especially for an industrial lot, fresh blacktop won’t be ready to withstand the weight of the frequent heavy loads that are part of your everyday routine. Your new commercial paving needs time to cure, and this is an essential step in the process to determine how well your paving stands up to the New England climate and normal wear and tear.
You’ll Need a Sealcoat Service
Allowing your new lot to cure appropriately is also essential for sealcoating. Your asphalt and sealing contractor will need to come back to your lot about six months after the initial installation to sealcoat the pavement. Sealcoating is an essential step for an industrial business because it helps maintain the new condition of your asphalt parking lot. After the initial asphalt sealing, you should have your asphalt paving contractor come out every 1 to 3 years for a repeat sealcoating service.
Deterioration Can Still Happen
Even if you’ve allowed your industrial lot to cure and sealcoated it at optimal times, you can expect that your industrial lot will have some asphalt potholes or cracks after the reinstallation, especially due to the temperature fluctuations in Massachusetts throughout the year. That will happen no matter how well your contractor did their job. But with the right installation process, the cracks and potholes will be less severe. This means you won’t need to invest as much time and money into repairs if you properly maintain your asphalt.
Industrial asphalt, in particular, needs routine maintenance by experienced contractors to provide safe passage for commercial vehicles, employees, and other visitors to your business. When your asphalt is installed, you should already have a plan in place for how you’ll go about regular inspections and service before major issues occur. Regular minor repairs are necessary so that they don’t become more significant issues. Not only will this be a more complicated fix, but it will cost your company more money. Be sure to protect your investment and your bottom line with preventative asphalt services.
