As a property manager entering the colder months in Minnesota, you are likely already planning for every contingency this coming season. Of course, the safety of your staff and clients are key. Aside from the day-to-day parking lot issues, you must be aware of damage that occurs to the asphalt surface due to winter weather. Failure to notice damages during the winter, can lead to costly repairs and downtime during the spring months.
If you own your own business (or manage one), your parking lot is a very important part of your customer’s experience and first impression. If your parking lot is smooth, without damage and potholes, there are no barriers to your customers entering your business and spending money. They will have a positive impression of your business. However, over time, the asphalt in your parking lot can become damaged, cracked, discolored, and potholes can form. Potholes are not only a nuisance but can be a safety hazard. This can ultimately deter your customers from frequenting your business
Business owners are always trying to find ways to ensure that their businesses thrive. Those in downtown locations will spend money to dress up their windows to attract customers. The money that business owners spend on these efforts are seen as investments in their own success and longevity. Ideas that draw customers in must be matched by products and/or services that entice customers to make purchases. Very successful businesses also consider the attractiveness and safety of the areas connected to their physical business space
Oil spots are one of the banes of any parking lot or driveway owner’s existence. Inconvenient to clean and unsightly to the eye, oil spots can do everything from stain the surface of asphalt to pit potholes in the pavement. Protecting your paving investment with a seal coating treatment is one of the best ways you can prevent oil damage. But what if oil spills on the asphalt before you seal?
A fresh oil spot is the simplest kind to remove because it is merely a stain on the asphalt’s surface. The best action to take in this case is to scrub away the oil
Sealcoating, crack filling and patching are three methods to maintain the longevity, health, and aesthetics of your parking lot. We preserve old houses by painting, caulking, and replacing old and rotted boards and help old cars run for many years by changing the oil and replacing engine parts. Asphalt surfaces are no different. They require the same attention and upkeep over time.
Sealcoating is useful as a barrier for your asphalt’s surface. Over time, sunlight hardens asphalt and breaks down the functional properties of the surface…
Establishing a long-term approach to a property’s pavement maintenance plan will not only build strong visual appeal, but it will also ultimately help extend the life of the parking lot. A proactive approach to maintenance helps property and facility managers reduce potential costs and liabilities. Sealcoating is one of the most important elements of a property’s maintenance plan with benefits that attract patrons and reduce costs.
An asphalt parking lot is an investment. Even with light use, asphalt oftentimes endures extreme variations in temperatures. Seal coating remains one of the best ways of protecting that investment from damage and deterioration. It is the leading method in extending the life of the underlying asphalt.
Everyone has pulled into that newly paved parking lot, with its rich dark black topcoat. Alternatively, it is noticeable when you are on a parking lot that is deteriorating. It may be a lighter color, contain cracks or even small potholes.
