Signs It's Time for a Parking Lot Repair

Potholes: One of the easiest ways to tell its time for a parking lot repair is potholes. Potholes can be the size of a golf ball or a crater, and any size can be hazardous to yourself and your customers.

Alligator Cracks: When there's too much stress on your asphalt, it will begin to look like alligator skin. Alligator cracks are a good indicator that it is time to call a paving contractor for a parking lot repair as soon as possible.

Faded Striping: Line striping is an essential component of a parking lot, keeping drivers and pedestrians safe. If your striping is starting to look worn or difficult to read, this could indicate other problems with your asphalt. You will want to examine the entire area to see if you need a parking lot repair or restriping.

Drainage Issue: If your parking lot is uneven, you could have drainage issues resulting in puddles of water. When water pools on your parking lot, you are at risk for more significant damage down the line. If water is not draining off your parking lot, it is essential to call a professional for a parking lot repair.

Warping: Extreme temperatures and heavy loads can cause your parking lot to warp or buckle. Repairing a warped parking lot can be challenging, so it is essential to call a professional as soon as possible before you need a replacement.

If you have noticed any of the signs above, it is time to call a professional at A. Rafferty Paving for a parking lot repair. We will provide you with quality services to improve your parking lot's safety and curb appeal.

How Does Asphalt Become Damaged?

Asphalt is constantly being bombarded with UV rays, water, heat in the summer as well as expanding and contracting ice during the winter. Over time, the combination of water, oxidation, heat, and the freeze/thaw cycle causes the asphalt surface to dry out, become brittle, and eventually break down.

Tiny cracks begin to form on the surface of the asphalt which allows the aggregate to loosen, and then lets water enter below the surface leading to increased cracks and damage. Vehicles that park in your parking lot can leave behind oil leaks. Motor oil leaks from cars can often accelerate asphalt deterioration along with heavy vehicle loads. When your parking lot is showing signs of wear or damage including potholes, cracked pavement, or unsealed surfaces, let us help.

Asphalt maintenance is key for preserving your parking lot, but also helps to ensure safety, aesthetic appeal, and efficient traffic flow. Keeping up with paving repairs and upkeep can provide many benefits for you, your employees, and your customers. Regular maintenance and care can also double the lifespan of your lot.
