Asphalt Parking Lot Repair
We get to the root of the problem
Your parking lot is a reflection of your business. That’s why it’s so important to repair your parking lot’s cracks and potholes. You want your customers to see an aesthetic blacktop surface, not a weathered eyesore. Cracks and potholes are also safety hazards that increase your customers’ risk of injury and vehicle damage. In some situations, asphalt paving can be repaired with a simple overlay. But extensive damage often demands a more comprehensive solution, from sealing a few areas to repaving the entire parking lot.
When you choose Tolliver & Curl for asphalt repair in Columbus Ohio, we get to the root of the problem. We will offer solutions to meet your immediate needs and future concerns while offering solutions that fit within your budget. Asphalt pavement always fails for a reason, either from surface failure, base course failure, or subgrade failure. It’s important to tailor asphalt repair to the type of visible damage and the future use of the failed area. If trash and dump trucks have destroyed your pavement, we would recommend a much different approach than if your sub-grade was failing or even surface cracking is apparent. Your parking lot was designed and constructed to accommodate a certain type of vehicles. Our team of experts can determine which design was installed and come up with the best solution for repair, specific to your pavement. We will get your project done right, on time and in budget.

Asphalt is designed to be a flexible surface. It moves, expands and contracts, as well as freezes and thaws with the seasons in Columbus. A gray appearance is the first sign that your pavement is ready for seal coating. When asphalt is worn on the surface it loses its ability to adjust with traffic and weather, it is not as flexible and begins to crack.
Sealcoating adds a protective layer of chemicals that penetrate the bituminous surface, which allows the asphalt to gain back some of its intended flexibility. A proper maintenance program for any asphalt surface would include the application of sealer. Though it should not be necessary to seal coat each and every year, an assessment of your lot is highly recommended on an annual basis. Our team of experienced pavement estimators will help you determine the best maintenance solution for your pavement. Get a free estimate on our Columbus sealcoating services today.
Included with every seal coat application that we provide, you will find crack filling included. It is necessary to fill those voids prior to sealing to achieve the expected end result, a smooth asphalt surface. If an area of your asphalt parking lot has started to crack, it is likely that a sealcoat application has been missed in the past. You can get back on track with your asphalt maintenance program simply by filling those isolated cracks, if your budget will not allow for a proper seal coating at this time. Crack sealing is a great short-term solution if you need a quick, cost effective repair. Contact us today for a free estimate on crack sealing.
Potholes put you and your customers at risk of injury and vehicle damage. There are many different procedures with varying cost associated with this term “pothole repair”. This is an instance where you as the consumer needs to be clearly informed of what this work entails and what you can expect upon completion. For Tolliver, we see pothole repairs as a less expensive alternative to a full depth asphalt patch. When repairing potholes, we sweep debris from the damaged area and infill the existing hole with hot asphalt. That new asphalt is compacted and can be left in the basic shape of the old hole. Filling the holes in your parking lot provides an immediate, cost-effective solution while making your lot safer. Call Tolliver & Curl today for a free estimate on our pothole repair services.
Asphalt Patching and Repair
When large, shattered areas are visible to even the untrained eye, imagine what an experienced asphalt professional can see. Your maintenance program could include several asphalt repair areas throughout the parking lot. If the entire lot is not in the same condition, if there are certain areas that have failed before other areas, then asphalt patching could be the solution. We assess your asphalt and devise a plan to make aesthetically pleasing square patches by removing and replacing the asphalt. Several factors come in to play when determining the right size and depth of these repairs. Contact us today and our experienced pavement team will provide recommendations to meet your needs.
Overlays and Resurfacing
There are instances when an existing parking lot has been maintained over the years, but it is ready for a brand-new asphalt surface. There are factors that our experienced team will identify if this solution is the right one for your parking lot. We consider things like failure in the existing asphalt, drainage/slope and match points along concrete such as ADA areas. Let our team assess the situation and discuss the options to meet the future needs of your parking lot, call today!
Mill and Pave
Similar to an overlay, this process leaves you with a new asphalt surface, but we are able to dial in an exact depth and remove the existing damaged asphalt. The choice to mill out a certain depth of existing pavement is determined by the extent of damage in width and depth. Complete removal or milling is the only way to install new asphalt back to the original elevations, which is often necessary in a parking lot. Sometimes this operation is useful to do large repair areas, while there are other instances when milling out an entire lot prior to paving is necessary. As with all our techniques to maintaining your parking lot, existing damage, future use, drainage, slope and your budget are all factors we keep in mind. Our experienced team will help you determine the best course of action to meet your needs. Let Tolliver & Curl help you make the right choice, request your estimate today.
Striping and Marking
Our comprehensive parking lot maintenance services include paint striping and marking your lot to maintain traffic patterns. This is yet another application that we use to help you maintain the professional look of your parking lot. Sometimes all your lot needs is a fresh coat of paint to bring the curb appeal up to par and we can help you make that decision. Tolliver & Curl has the experience, tools and drive to get your parking lot project completed, down to the final paint marking.

The way in which we repair your asphalt will all depend on the size, scope, and details of your specific project. Because no task is the same, we decide on things like crack filling, resurfacing, patching, removal and replacement, and other methods.
This will also depend on your situation. We are experts at sealcoating, which is a great way to give your asphalt a facelift to not only make it look better, but make it last longer. This is a great cost-effective option.
Yes. You can pave over things like asphalt driveways, parking lots, or roads. This is done by installing new layer on top of the asphalt that is already there and grinding at the transitions.
This will depend on the state of what the new asphalt is going on top of. If you have a base that is in very bad shape, putting a layer over top will not always fix the underlying issues. This is why it’s important to consult an expert.
