Parking Lot Repair and Maintenance Tips

Has Your Parking Lot Seen Better Days?

Business owners have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the people that use their parking lot. So when one is in bad shape, accidents will eventually happen. Not to mention the dangers that are waiting when the surface starts to fail, chip away, or have gaping potholes big enough to swallow tires. So, if your parking lot needs some TLC, here are a few tips from Bluff City Paving that specialize in parking lot repair.

Parking lot repair always comes first

If your parking lot is in bad condition, the best first thing you should do is to call a professional to come and access the damage. They will provide you with a quote on getting the space back to new again. This could include milling the existing surface to remove failing asphalt, followed by adding a new base and regrading the lot before they install and compact new asphalt.

Keeping it clean

Once your parking lot is finished, it is critical to keep it clean. Your lot provides a great first impression to your customers when they visit your business. It also allows you to inspect the lot regularly to see if there are any minor potential issues that could turn into more major and costly ones. It is important that you do this regularly, more so when your parking lot sees a great deal of customer traffic.


If you want to go that extra mile and protect your parking lot, discuss sealcoating with your parking lot contractor. Seal coating is the application of a layer of sealant on your parking lot surface, which will protect it from the elements such as salt, UV rays, water, oil, and even gas. Most experts do agree that seal coating every few years does prolong the life span of your parking lot by more than double.
