Parking Lot Services: Repairing Cracks in Your Parking Lot

Like any other material, asphalt gradually deteriorates as time progresses. Take a close look at your parking lot and you will likely find it shows signs of wear and tear or even has considerable visible damage. Wait long enough and the wear and tear will lead to major cracking. You might even find puddling water on your asphalt parking lot.
If your lot is seriously damaged, there is no guarantee it will have to be fully replaced. Our parking lot services in Tampa are here to repair your lot so it can withstand the flow of traffic, weather, and other potentially harmful forces. Have your parking lot maintained with regularity and you will be able to delay full replacement that much longer.

Parking Lot Services in Tampa: Resurfacing

If your parking lot surface is heavily oxidized yet has a structurally sound base, the best option is to have it resurfaced. Resurfacing is also known as overlaying. This process involves the application of a fresh layer of asphalt. Resurfacing your parking lot will boost its aesthetic appeal without zapping your budget.
If you do not know the basics of resurfacing, a professional team will explain it to you. In general, the addition of this asphalt layer is applied to a depth of two inches. Once added, this fresh layer will prolong your lot’s lifespan and rejuvenate the surface.

The Asphalt Resurfacing Process

Resurfacing is performed after the current damage to the lot, be it cracking, holes, or soft spots is repaired. These repairs are necessary as the application of the overlaying will only prove as good as the current surface it is placed upon. Linear cracking less than ¼ inch in width can be repaired with our specialized liquid crack-fillers. Let our parking lot services in Tampa handle these cracks and you will rest easy knowing the best in the business are hard at work on your lot.
If your lot’s cracking is wider than ¼ inch or beyond a few inches in depth, there is a more significant problem. If such deep cracks are merely filled, the underlying problem will still remain. An in-depth repair of these cracks is necessary so they do not show through the fresh asphalt layer. Our team will perform these repairs and get your property back to tip-top shape. Once resurfacing is performed, the prior damage will no longer pose a threat to customers and staff visiting your property.

Crack Repair and Resurfacing Vs. Reconstruction

If your asphalt parking lot is nearing two decades in age, you should consider a full reconstruction as opposed to crack repair and subsequent resurfacing. The unfortunate truth is two full decades of exposure to the elements and other forces will cause every type of surface to fail, regardless of what it is made of.
Our parking lot services in Tampa include reconstruction. We will install the subgrade asphalt layer along with the overlay layer to the upper portion of the pavement. Once finished, your property will look perfect and function without flaw. You will not find the same wide range of parking lot services in Tampa from our competitors.
