Ensuring the integrity of your parking lot and stopping water from getting into and under your asphalt is key.

Water is the enemy particularly the freeze and thaw cycles we have throughout the winter and spring. When water gets into the cracks and openings in your asphalt, it moves the pavement up and down, and back and forth creating weaknesses in the asphalt. These weak spots go on to form potholes.

Water can also get under the pavement and wash away the sub-base supporting the asphalt above. Pavement which is not supported will break away and form potholes.

Maintaining and repairing your pavement sooner rather than later is cheaper. If you do no maintenance, you will need to repave the lot earlier than necessary. Some less expensive maintenance work early on will put off the need to repave and help eliminate slips, trips and fall hazards.
