A 10-Point Plan for Professionals (Without Being Overwhelmed)

Good Parking Lot and Pavement Maintenance practices Asphalt pavements are made using a binder to hold compactly stone and gravel. The binder itself is made by distillation of some crude oils. The pavement degradation process starts when the binder is exposed to the effects of chemicals,ultra violet rays of the sun or rain over time. This asphalt degradation,if not early controlled,results in pavements having a bad looking appearance and in very bad situations,pot- holes that don’t do your car springs any good. In order to minimize the effects of the elements mentioned above and prolong the useful life of your driveway,it is important that a deliberate program that involves an early sealing of cracks and sealcoating on the asphalt pavement be planned and executed. Sealcoating provides a protective layer that keeps off the elements from coming into contact with the binder. It is certainly more cost effective to control potential degradation when the cracks are small rather than having to spend thousands of valuable dollars at latter times when entire payments have to be redone. When it comes to crack sealing,do not be fooled by how uncomplicated it might appear;it definitely entails far much more. You need to buy the correct material to be used for filling up the cracks. The way the affected asphalted surface is prepared for the process of crack sealing determines a lot the quality of the results of the process.

A thorough sweeping of dirt from the area to be worked on using a bloom or a high-pressure compressor will ensure that all dirt and debris are removed before the material is applied,as presence of such dirt or debris weakens the power of the material to bond well with the cracked surface.

The machines should always be checked to confirm that they do not contain oil or moisture droplets before using them to blow into the cracks. The fill should be used immediately after cleaning and drying the cracked places. Bear the following in mind when planning to do sealcoating. Do not perform seal coating if there is any indication that rain may fall in the next 24 hours. Never apply a sealcoat when temperatures are below 50 degrees. Make sure to apply two coats for the best results. No vehicles should be driven over the sealcoated surface for the next 24 hours so as to allow the seal to cure. As a general rule, sealcoating is applied every 2-3 years to prolong the life of the pavement. Every 2 years,ensure that you re-mark the stripe lines on your parking lot. Always confirm that your parking lot is ADA(Americans with Disabilities Act)compliant before doing the lot marking. When applied at the right time,crack sealing and sealcoating coupled with clearly drawn striping lines keeps your pavement or parking lot looking terrific for long at minimal costs.
