6 Steps to Get Them Fixed
Cracks in the parking lot may not seem like a big deal, but they can damage your building, and make customers feel unsafe. Cracking is also a sign that water has been running underneath the pavement for too long. The good news is that these problems are easily fixable with the help of South Haven Parking Lot Paving and with six steps:
The first thing to do is to identify the problem. Figure out how big of a project you are dealing with, and what needs to be done about it.
Once you have identified your issue, cover any cracks with blacktop sealant so they don’t spread or allow water through them
Next check for methane gas or petroleum products underground that could potentially cause an explosion if ignited by heat from parking lot lights at night. Identify these areas before touching anything!
Keep heavy equipment away from roadways until repairs are made because machinery will only make problems worse
Contact your asphalt contractor as soon as possible—usually within 24 hours of noticing damage is best but sooner would also work well depending on severity. They can help determine if this is something you can do yourself, or if it’s time to hire a professional
If all else fails seek advice from professionals. Some parking lots are just too large and complex for homeowners to fix on their own without the expertise of an experienced contractor.
Just like any other part of your building, the parking lot is also a reflection on your business. Make sure it’s in good shape before customers get an unpleasant surprise when they visit!
