Pavement Repair Columbus Ohio
The importance of a safe, working parking lot cannot be overstated.
Keeping everyone safe.
After a long, hard winter, pothole repair is on everybody’s mind. From commercial and industrial parking lots to apartment and condominium complexes, the importance of a safe, working parking lot cannot be overstated. When workers, visitors, and residents come and go, they expect to navigate a parking lot that is free of potholes and cracks.
Fortunately, we can greatly improve the condition of your parking lot by filling the potholes with hot mix asphalt that is then compacted. Keep in mind that there may be times when it’s structurally necessary to repair a larger patch of the lot. In instances such as this, we present the options, which are closely tied to your budget and how the area will be used in the future. As industry leaders, we have many means and methods for making the parking lot safe again.
Causes of Asphalt Damage
A variety of factors can cause damage to your asphalt parking lot, including the amount of traffic and weather conditions. For example, heavy vehicles can put a lot of pressure on the pavement, causing it to crack. Exposure to the elements as well as the ground settling can also cause cracks to form.
While small cracks in the pavement may not seem like much of an issue, if not taken care of, they can cause big problems. When water seeps into the cracks then freezes in cold temperatures, the water expands and pushes up against the asphalt. This causes the cracks in the pavement to grow. When the ice thaws, the pavement caves in, causing unsightly and dangerous potholes. Leaked vehicle fluids and other spilled chemicals can also enter cracks in the pavement and cause damage.
If it’s been a while since you’ve had your asphalt repaired, any existing damage may get worse over time if not properly addressed.
Why is Asphalt Maintenance Important?
Proper asphalt maintenance work improves the appearance and safety of your parking lot. The condition of your parking lot is often the first impression someone has when visiting your business. A smooth, clean surface can leave a great first impression before the visitor even walks through your door. Alternatively, damaged pavement can contribute to a run-down or rugged appearance.
Well-maintained pavement also makes for a safer parking lot. Potholes can cause damage to cars and serve as trip hazards for pedestrians. Asphalt that’s free of potholes and cracks is easier to maneuver and safer, too.
Having the proper asphalt services performed in a timely manner also prevents small cracks from becoming larger problems that would require more complex – and costly – repairs in the future.
Additional Repair Services
In addition to asphalt paving and repair, we also offer concrete repair and maintenance services, including sidewalks, catch basins, dumpster pads, and curb repair. Perhaps there’s a dumpster pad on the corner of your parking lot, and it’s cracked or busted and needs to be repaired. That dumpster pad not only looks bad, but it may pose structural problems as well. If not properly repaired, water can make its way underneath the asphalt pavement and run to the catch basin below. The same is true of concrete sidewalks and curbs, which if not addressed could lead to wash-out on the pavement.
