Asphalt repair companies patch the potholes in your parking lot to prevent accidents or damage to the vehicles and pedestrians visiting your facility. Pothole repairs and other asphalt deterioration should be fixed in a timely manner to also prevent further deterioration of the asphalt pavement.
If you own or manage a facility in Florida with a large commercial parking lot and the asphalt pavement is damaged, you can hire a Florida asphalt repair company. This type of company offers several types of services such as asphalt repair, asphalt removal and asphalt resurfacing.
Keep in mind that the rule of thumb is typically this: if pavement repairs are required for more than twenty-five percent of the entire pavement area, it will be more economical to overlay the entire surface. Your paving and sealcoating company representative can help you make that determination.
A more specialized Florida asphalt pavement company not only can repair asphalt, but can perform the initial asphalt paving as well as provide sealcoating and line striping – two important asphalt services.
To keep asphalt pavement in good order, it needs to be regularly inspected and maintained. Without proper sealcoating, asphalt will begin to show signs of wear from oxidation, water and other chemical penetration. The symptoms of serious asphalt failure case include interconnecting cracks, and obvious depressions on the pavement, called potholes.
What happens in the formation of a pothole is actually the deterioration of the asphalt. Fine hairline cracks appear on the asphalt pavement due to exposure to weather elements such as the hot Florida sun and heavy rain. If not well maintained, the water will seep through these small cracks and can then develop into large potholes. Once formed, a pothole can accumulate water in it causing more damage. Over time, the substrate will be undermined resulting in an expensive asphalt repair.
Potholes are a hazard to both people and vehicles. They can cause pedestrians to accidently fall and get injured and they can also damage the tires and suspension of the vehicles passing over them.
Asphalt repairs may also be necessary when your parking lot’s pavement isn’t structurally sound. In the initial design and installation, your parking lot may not have been designed for heavy loads. Frequently delivery bays or garbage trucks are not figured into the initial design and installation of asphalt pavement. Any area of the surface of the asphalt that is either heaved up or depressed down should be completely reconstructed starting from the base.
