Does your parking lot look like a dirty wreck? That happens. However, there are several services offered by asphalt contractors that can help restore the appearance of your parking lot and make it look attractive again.
Potholes can be quite dangerous if people step into them and do not see them. If they are deep enough and filled with water, they can be quite deceptive. So deceptive in fact, that drivers will attempt to drive right over them and get their tires stuck or bust up the undersides of their vehicles when the vehicles are suddenly dropped into the potholes and then forced back upward when the drivers roll out of them. Asphalt contractors can fill these deep potholes to prevent injury and damage, for which customers can sue you.
Crack filler for asphalt is quite a different product and service than pothole filler. For one, the crack filler has almost no aggregate particles, whereas the pothole filler is very similar to the same stuff used to repave parking lots. Crack filler is more fluid so that it does what it is supposed to-- sink into and fill up cracks in the asphalt. It is then smoothed over to make an even transition between the surrounding asphalt and the hardened crack filler.
Parking Lot Repaving
Nothing brightens up and refreshes the look of asphalt on a parking lot quite like a parking lot repaving. This can be done one of two ways. Either the old asphalt is completely torn up and the parking lot is completely redone (as is the case when it is damaged beyond repair) or the contractor will lay down a fresh "top coat" of asphalt to hide the scary damaged parking lot underneath. Your contractor will let you know which procedure is best for the amount of damage you have in your parking lot.
What Services Cost
The price of each of the above services depends on a number of factors. It depends on who you hire, what service is provided, how many crew members it takes to complete the job (man hours), the size of your parking lot, and how soon you need the job completed (rush jobs are extra). If the whole parking lot has to be ripped up and redone, there are estimates for the cost of a new parking lot on which you can base your own estimate of cost.
