TO STOP! You know there it is. When you come to work, you see it every day. To get to your front door, you even walk around the crater. It’s your parking lot, or driveway, and every day you ignore it, hoping it’ll go away. I call it “Asphalt Denial” You do not want to know what needs to be done because you know it can cost a lot of money to pave asphalt! You may have had an estimate already that put you in cardiac arrest and buried you in the bottom of the stack of To Do” that has been sitting there for 5 years. With the “Fix this now or Else Stick” threatening that your parking lot will implode and cause the end of the world, you could have even been beaten over the head. You know you need to do parking lot maintenance, but without putting you in financial ruin, you can’t figure out how to get started and complete it. Not alone are you. This problem is faced every day by many individuals. I have some suggestions to get you to the “Asphalt Promised Land”Feel free to find more information at Douglasville Driveway Paving.
Get your estimates first. Request quotes that are broken down into sub-sections, including asphalt paving, repairs, sealing, filling crack and striping, each section being associated with costs. You can work on a section at a time this way.
Next, first, you do the paving repairs. Not fixing potholes can in the shortest amount of time, do the most damage to a parking lot or driveway. The cars that hit them can also be damaged by them. This is typically the highest cost in an estimate. You can do the repairs over several years if you’re on a tight budget. Set a budget figure that you want to spend and concentrate primarily on any repairs in high traffic areas such as drive lanes or walking areas, then move to low traffic areas such as parking stalls. There’s a difference between patches and repairs. Get your potholes repaired, don’t patch them!. The repairs will last 15-20 years if you repair the holes.
3rd, fill your cracks and finish sealcoating. This step may take several years down the road, but it will maintain what you have and what you have been doing in repairs over the past few years. Sealcoating is typically a few cents per square foot, but the longevity of a parking lot makes a difference. Sealcoating and striping will also spruce up the parking lot’s appearance.
