Parking lots are a crucial part of any business, yet they are often overlooked. A well designed and installed lot is a great place to start. But with all the wear-and-tear a parking lot incurs, maintenance is equally important. Atlantic Southern Paving offers ongoing Orlando paving maintenance plans to take the stress off of you and ensure that your customers are always treated to the safest and smoothest experience. Our maintenance options include:
Sealcoating is a process that uses a superheated asphalt solution to cover and protect your pavement. Just a thin layer of this specially formulated mixture is deceptively strong. It protects your parking lot from oil, gas, and UV damage while sealing small imperfections and repelling water. Water is a major enemy to the longevity of your lot, as it can seep into cracks, widening them as it expands and contracts due to temperature changes. This can eventually lead to foundational damage, which can result in intensive and costly repairs. Sealcoating also has the added benefit of beautifying your property. Its glossy black finish is appealing while also providing a nonslip grip for pedestrians and vehicles alike. We recommend that you have your first seal coat applied within the first year of having a new parking lot installed. This will ensure that it is being preserved from a pristine condition. how often your seal coat needs to be reapplied varies depending o the location and traffic density of your property, but every 2-3 years is a good rule of thumb. By opting into an ASP seal coating maintenance plan, you are putting in a small investment that will do wonders for repair and replacement costs in the long run.
Suppose you did not know to seal coat your driveways. It happens, and a little damage is nothing to worry about. As we mentioned, water can commonly cause cracks in unsealed pavement. This can also happen because of mechanical damage. Whatever the reason, ASP offers crack sealing solutions to stop their spread and remove and safety hazards. We use an expertly applied rubber sealant to fill crack completely and provide a waterproof barrier. We also do a thorough cleaning beforehand to ensure the closest and longest-lasting seal.
So you have smoothed, sealed, beautiful pavement. But don’t forget about the striping! Parking lot striping is what turns a big, homogenous piece of asphalt into a functional parking lot. And just as the paint on your house will fade or chip over time, so will the paint on your parking lot. Unlike repainting your house, however, touching up a lot’s striping is not a great DIY. There are many strict laws that must be followed when striping to ensure the safety and accessibility of your property. Everything from color to direction, to the size of your striping, is regulated based on your area. ASP will make sure your striping is easy to navigate and as well as being ADA compliant. And while customers may not expressly mention it, we all subconsciously notice when a business takes care of its appearance. Crisp, bright paint serves both a functional and aesthetic purpose.
