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.
You likely won’t have to factor in a huge budget each year for asphalt repairs. If a parking lot is in fairly good shape, preventive maintenance is the best use of your budget. Taking care of small repair needs can prevent larger problems from arising in the first place. It is important that you do not ignore minor repairs in an attempt to save money, as it will only cost you in the long run.
To improve the life expectancy of a parking lot, regular seal coating is recommended. Seal coating improves the look, feel and condition of parking lots in several ways. You will find that keeping the parking lot clean is much easier with a regular seal coating and it will fare better against harsher weather conditions. U.S. Pave can recommend a seal coating schedule based on your specific business needs.
Crack filling is another asphalt repair that is a real money saver. If there are cracks in your asphalt that are between ¼ inch and 1 inch, they could lead to serious issues down the road. Water gets into cracks and damages the sub-base. To extend the life of a parking lot, filling cracks is a small asphalt repair that is worth the investment.
