How to Care for Your Commercial Lot This Winter
Inspect Often and Repair EarlyIf you are able, getting an inspection and repairing any found issues prior to winter will be your best defense against cold weather deterioration. Any time before the first snowfall is appropriate for inspection and repairs. Most asphalt contractors, like Cassidy Paving, cannot do much for your lot once the ground gets below 45 degrees consistently, but we can always attempt to work with you to patch what is necessary. If you notice something going on with your asphalt lot during the winter, you can still call us out to inspect the area. Once we take a look, you can be put on the springtime list for expedited service. We always want to repair potholes, cracks, and drainage issues as early as possible so there is no benefit to waiting. The longer you wait, the more extensive these repairs will be.
Remove DebrisAnything from tree limbs to litter can be a real hazard for commercial lots once the snow and ice move in. Branches, large limbs, leaves, and trash will seal in moisture. This moisture will go through an intense freeze-thaw cycle many times throughout the winter. If your asphalt is already in subpar condition, the moisture beneath this debris will mean even more dramatic shifts in your lot. Additionally, the weight of this debris can cause increased rapid deterioration. Asphalt best practice is to clear debris regularly throughout the winter in order to maintain the current condition of your commercial pavement.
Hire Snow Removal ProsA couple of things consistently true about commercial asphalt lots in Massachusetts is that there will be a lot snow and you will need to access your building despite how deep that snow may be. When it comes to large areas like commercial lots, a professional removal company will be your best option. Dependable snow removal can save your company and/or tenants time and money. Cassidy Paving offers these services on a per storm, per season, or per push basis which makes our plans flexible for every size lot and budget.
