New Asphalt for your Parking Lot This SpringMonday, March 21, 2022
Now that seems winter is finally thawing out you can assess the damage to your parking lot. Ice and snow have likely taken a bit of a toll on your commercial asphalt. Though asphalt is more durable and resistant to ice damage than concrete, the mixture of salt and freezing water that we get in Michigan tend to chip away at any pavement at least a little bit. Here’s why spring is the best time to get your money’s worth from new asphalt on your commercial parking lot.
The weather is right for installation
Spring is the perfect time for getting new asphalt because it’s warm enough to keep the asphalt hot for great compaction and a smooth finish
Up to 8 months before the risk of natural damage
Asphalt is flexible enough to withstand weight from heavy trucks and other vehicles, so the main concern for what will damage your asphalt is ice that thaws and freezes over and over. However, if you get your asphalt repaved now, you won’t have to worry about ice starting to damage it until late October at the earliest! This means you’ll have a clean surface for your commercial parking lot for the better part of a year before the chance of damage begins with the winter.
New seal coating could mean not repaving at all
As we’ve said before, asphalt is the most durable material for commercial parking lots. This means that if you’ve recently had your asphalt commercial parking lot repaved before last winter, you may not need to do a whole new resurfacing. Chances are your parking lot only sustained minor damage during the winter, so the fix could be as simple as small spot repairs and a new seal coating. With this method, your asphalt commercial parking lot will still look as clean and be as durable as it would with repaving.

If you have a beaten-up, worn-out parking lot full of potholes and cracks, then that message won’t be as bright and shining as you would hope.
