Parking Lot Maintenance
Taking care of your parking lot is a crucial step in extending its life and maximizing your investment. Parking lot maintenance needs to be performed to prevent the deterioration of a lot, and it is a cost-effective solution that minimizes risk. If you have a parking lot that is showing signs of wear, such as longitudinal cracks, traverse cracks, raveling or minor block cracking, you need professional parking lot maintenance.

Asphalt Paving, Patching and Repair
When water seeps into asphalt through cracks that haven’t been properly sealed, a pothole can form. When the water freezes, it expands, causing the crack to enlarge. Once the ice melts, a void is left behind, and the surrounding asphalt falls into the hole, forming a pothole.
In many instances, potholes in parking lots can be repaired using hot or cold asphalt mix. The type used depends on the location and the time of year.
In time, fine hairline cracks can occur within asphalt. When the lot hasn’t been properly maintained over the years, water can seep through the cracks and form holes under the surface of the asphalt, decreasing its structural stability. When this occurs, asphalt removal and replacement is usually the recommended solution.
Seal coating is one of the most important steps in ensuring the longevity of any parking lot. The seal coat is made of either asphalt cement combined with water, inert fillers and emulsifying agents or coal tar pitch. This mixture is applied to the surface of the parking lot to provide protection against UV rays, water, salt, oil and gasoline.
Seal coating fills cracks and voids on the surface of your parking lot, reducing exposure to UV rays from the sun. It also acts as a waterproofing agent and protects against freeze/thaw cycles that can lead to cracks and potholes.
When you need an affordable and effective way to enhance the overall appearance of your parking lot and make it more functional, line striping is an excellent investment. At AllWays Paving, we offer both new striping and re-striping services, and we use only the best quality paint.
Whether you are just in need of basic lines for parking spaces or you need road markings or other types of parking lot markings, we do it all.
