Are Discounts Paving Your Way to Retail Success in South Florida?

South Florida retailers have long been able to hold their own when it comes to offering customers discount shopping on quality goods. However, clever marketing will only take your business so far. Your premises also need to present a safe, secure and inviting environment for potential customers.

Parking lots and paving are two areas where South Florida retailers can gain an edge on the competition. When customers see a poorly maintained parking lot and discount signs in a store window, it doesn’t paint a great picture. Rather than showing customers that you are adding value to your services, this scene suggests a going out of business sale.

Planning Your Asphalt Repair Budget

There is a lot you can learn from a thorough asphalt inspection. A parking lot requires maintenance to help ensure that small repair needs don’t become a major resurfacing project. Effectively planning your budget for asphalt repairs could lead to considerable savings over the long term. A well-designed and maintained asphalt parking lot can last for as long as 20 years.

Is Your Pavement Cracking Under the Heat?

Running a business in South Florida has its perks. The weather is great – usually – and the region enjoys the spoils of a rich and vibrant tourism industry. However, the climate in South Florida can also wreak havoc on your asphalt parking lot or pavements. Heat can cause cracks that will inevitably lead to water seepage.

The sub-surface layers of an asphalt lot can suffer damage resulting from erosion. If air gaps form between the sub-surface layer and the top layer, it makes the surface vulnerable to further damage when traffic passes through the lot. The conclusion is a top layer that begins to sag and eventually collapses and even crumbles. At this stage, you may have both cracks and potholes throughout the lot.


Asphalt parking lots can take a battering for a number of reasons. Water seepage, petroleum spills and general dirt and grime that really ruin that shine. As much as you try to keep your parking lot clean and well maintained, there is no substitute for asphalt sealcoating.

The process of resealing your asphalt parking lot involves more than simply replacing the surface. A coal tar pitch or asphalt emulsion acts as a layer of defense against most of the common issues that asphalt parking lots have to deal with on a daily basis. Asphalt emulsion is mixed with inert fillers, water, emulsifying agents or additives for maximum protection.

As a customer service oriented business it is extremely important that car dealerships keep their parking lots in pristine condition. The lot needs to be constantly maintained and repairs should be made immediately when an issue arises.
