Parking Lot Repairs to Make in Spring

It’s difficult to come back from a bad first impression. That’s why it’s essential to book parking lot repairs and ongoing parking lot services for your business starting this spring. Trust us: Iowa’s rising temperatures and snow melt tend to cause unsightly cracks and potholes. Give potential customers a good first impression before they even step out of their car by hiring Speck USA to fix the following parking lot problems. 

Parking Lot Repairs


No matter how well you take care of your parking lot, traffic, water drainage, and freeze-thaw cycles will eventually cause cracks in the asphalt. Asphalt repair experts know how to assess, prepare, and seal cracks and gaps using top-of-the-line equipment.


When your parking lot cracks go too long without being repaired, they could turn into potholes. There’s nothing worse for a business than to give their customers a cracked hubcap or broken ankle because they didn’t take the time to fill in their potholes.

Uneven Areas

An unintentional speed bump or surprise dip in your parking lot might result in spilled coffee and crabby clientele. These uneven sections usually need to be cut out, removed, and replaced with new asphalt. 

Seal Coating 

A seal coat is a thin protective coating that should be applied over any repair job. It resists enemies of asphalt, such as water, UV rays, and motor oil. A seal coat should be applied to the entire parking lot approximately every five years to keep your blacktop from turning into a “greytop.”


Depending on the extent of your parking lot damage, it might be necessary to resurface the asphalt. After the cracks and potholes are repaired, the contractor will lay a new layer of asphalt over the existing one, about two inches thick. This solution is less expensive than replacing the asphalt altogether. 

Drainage Corrections

Do your clients have to walk through puddles to get to you every time it rains? It’s not a good look. Adding slopes, curbs, or drainage ditches can correct those puddle problems.

Parking Lot Services 

Of all the ways to enhance your business’s curb appeal, taking care of your parking lot is relatively easy and cost-effective when you hire experts to do it for you. 

Pressure Washing and Sweeping

Scheduling monthly parking lot cleanings will keep it looking spectacular for customers and extend the life of the asphalt. Pressure washing and sweeping will keep dirt, leaves, and trash where they belong. 

Snow Removal

When the streets of Des Moines are plowed but your parking lot is blocked by snow, customers won’t be able to get to your front door. Show winter who’s boss by hiring snow removal services for your parking lot
