Save Money with Fall Asphalt Maintenance

by | Sep 8, 2017

Preventative maintenance in the fall reduces the risk you’ll be facing major problems when our West Michigan winter (and all the snow it brings) hits us in the upcoming months!

Now, as you do seasonal inspections on your property—and you absolutely should be doing seasonal inspections on your property!—don’t forget to keep an eye on the ground. After all, your asphalt-paved surfaces like walkways, parking lot, or driveway might also need some attention.

One of the best ways to keep your property looking its best, increase safety for customers and visitors, and even save money in the long run is to make room in your budget for preventative asphalt maintenance. Maintenance projects like filling potholes and cracks are quite affordable and provide an outstanding return on your investment.

We want you to protect your asphalt pavement—and improve your bottom line—so here are some top asphalt paving strategies for the fall:

  • Seasonal aesthetic evaluation. This is fairly straightforward – just take a step back and ask yourself how the pavement is looking. Is it worn down? Does it look like the owner of the property cares? Could it look better? The good news is that a quick treatment like sealcoating can make the lot appear new again, which is important for the curb appeal of your property.
  • Asphalt surface inspection.In addition to aesthetic concerns, you need to consider the structural integrity of your parking lot and walkways. Are there potholes or cracks that need filling? If so, they are currently allowing water to penetrate the surface of the pavement and cause major problems (even if you can’t see them yet). We will soon be going through freeze and thaw cycles here in West Michigan, and they can (and do!) severely damage paved surfaces. Want to preserve the life of your lot? Contact our team at Stripe A Lot and we can help – without trying to sell you on anything you don’t need!
  • Water pooling evaluation. Water seeping into the pavement is certainly a problem, but so too is standing water. Sure, this is an indication that water will eventually get down below the surface, but it can also create problems for customers and ruin the aesthetic appeal. If you care about your property, you would rather have a nice, freshly-coated lot that is level (so water doesn’t pool). This is especially important as we head into our colder seasons, since pooled water can freeze over and create icy hazards for customers and visitors!
