Damaged Asphalt? Your Spring Checklist

by | Mar 19, 2021

Spring is one of the best seasons in West Michigan. Temperatures warm up, we have more sunlight, birds return, we plant gardens, and we spend time outside to enjoy all that Michigan has to offer. With the change in season, we begin to see new life.

Unfortunately, there’s a different story happening for your asphalt. During the winter and spring, your driveway or parking lot are battling many enemies:

  • cold and moisture
  • the freeze/thaw cycle
  • salt
  • snow removal
  • vehicles

As the snow melts, you’ll find that your asphalt is fighting a losing battle.

Instead of smooth, black asphalt, you see:
Cracks • Potholes • Broken Edges • Puddles • Faded Markings • Dull Surface

“Well great! Now what?” you might be asking. We get it, no one wants an unsafe, ugly parking lot or driveway.

Proper maintenance is so important to your asphalt looking good and lasting longer. Damage needs to be fixed as early as possible to stop it from spreading.

Print this post or take your phone and walk around your parking lot. Do you have:

cracks (wider than 1/4 inch)
potholes
alligatored areas (cracking resembling alligator skin)
sinkholes
unsupported edges
large amounts of standing water
faded stripes or markings on your parking lot
dull or faded surface that creates a negative impression

What happens if you ignore these problems:

  • un-repaired cracks become big, ugly, dangerous potholes
  • damage opens up asphalt to gas or oil spills, and UV light that deteriorates and dries out your asphalt
  • unsupported edges crack off
  • poor drainage causes weak spots and standing water
  • people get a negative impression of you or your businesses
  • your property value is impacted 
  • your driveway or parking lot is unsafe
  • the more expensive the repairs will be in the long run

You need an experienced, trusted asphalt company that can repair the damage caused by winter weather.
