Parking Lot Paving
Every parking lot paving job should be topped with a fresh seal coat. Seal coating protects asphalt from damaging substances such as water, motor oil, and UV rays. Have your lot resealed every two to three years to keep it looking new for longer.
If your parking lot has too many cracks, then the numerous black squiggly lines that come with crack sealing would make it look even less attractive. In this case, it’s more efficient and aesthetic to resurface the asphalt or concrete.
Resurfacing involves removing the top layer of asphalt or concrete, sealing any cracks, and then re-paving to give it a fresh, solid look. This treatment can extend the life of your parking lot for another eight to fifteen years.
If your parking lot is over 20 years old, most professionals would recommend replacing it completely rather than resurfacing it.
Additionally, concrete or asphalt resurfacing won’t be enough to fix foundational issues. If it was improperly paved the first time or if there are tree roots disrupting the foundation, no amount of resurfacing is going to help.
A parking lot contractor will be able to look at the damage and determine if there are signs of a deeper problem. In these cases, if the parking lot is just resurfaced, the cracks would likely reappear over time.
