Parking lot Services

Is your pavement parched? Are cracks creeping across your parking lot? Is your asphalt asking for assistance? City Wide can manage a variety of services from sweeping services and pressure washing to resurfacing and repair. Below are some of the various services that help to maintain the appearance and functionality of your lot.

Sweeping

It may seem like a menial task, but regular cleaning of your parking lot by sweeping can make a big difference in the day to day appearance of your property’s exterior. By removing the accumulation of debris, dirt, and grime your pavement will look well-maintained and professional. Sweeping machines make this process feasible for even large lots and garages.

Crack Sealing

Cracks can be caused by several different occurrences. Temperature and weathering naturally cause small fractures in the pavement, and once moisture finds its way into these fractures they can be widened greatly. Edge cracks caused by insufficient shoulder support and poor drainage, as well as reflective cracks caused by poorly placed pavement overlays, are results of poorly executed repair or construction.

It’s important to note that not all pavement cracks are the same and often need different levels of repair – but by sealing these cracks when they appear, you can slow or even prevent their expansion.

Patching and Repair

Some cracks develop into potholes. These holes are dangerous and can cause damage to vehicles and pedestrians alike. Potholes should be patched and repaired as they occur. By digging out the hole to a solid base then filling it with the right kind of patch material, you can be sure to keep it from developing further.

Drainage Adjustment and Repair

Bad drainage can mean flooded parking lots and damaged property. Leveling off the lot in the proper way and providing the proper drainage is important, not only for the condition of your pavement, but also for the safety of visitors and property.

Sealcoating

Sealcoating is an important step in the repair and maintenance process that often gets overlooked. This emulsion application provides a weather resistant seal to the asphalt and can also make the lot look brand new. See next week’s post for more on sealcoating.

Striping

Striping often occurs in tandem with other services on this list, but can also be carried out if the lines in your lot are simply faded. Painting fresh lines helps drivers park and navigate your lot safely.

Concrete Repair

Curbs and walkways around your parking lot can be damaged by daily wear and tear as well. Concrete is treated much differently than asphalt but can often be repaired at the same time. This increases the aesthetic value, drainage, and safety of your parking lot.

Commercial Parking Lot Services

Is it time to finally fix those potholes in your parking lot? Or maybe your lot simply needs a shine? Having a clearly marked, clean, and orderly parking lot speaks volumes about a business. However, maintenance and repair can be an ongoing project, especially if you live in an area with inclement weather. City Wide can schedule parking lot professionals to complete these needs and more.

Parking Lot Damage

Did you know harsh weather can cause cracks to worsen? Even more, lines fade, curbs slope, and fissures may appear. Without proper care, not only can this become an eyesore to your customers, but it can also pose a danger to them and their vehicles.

Hard winters can cause the pavement to literally crumble. High temperatures will also do extensive damage. Whether your parking lot has suffered from industrial de-icing chemicals or oxidation due to heat, taking the necessary preventative measures can more than double the life of your parking lot.

Even if there are cracks or holes, it doesn’t always mean your parking lot will need a full resurface. Without a professional set of eyes, it’s hard to know the best solution for your business. City Wide can manage the most cost-effective options for your facility.

Safety Measures

Perhaps the most critical part of parking lot maintenance and repair is the safety it provides for everyone using the space. It not only creates a better driving environment, but it also provides clients with a sense of security.

Importance of Continuous Parking Lot Care

The key to maintaining the life of your parking lot is ongoing maintenance. Keeping a lot free of dirt and debris (especially sand) extends the life of the pavement and adds to the aesthetic value of your property. Additionally, excessive dirt won’t be tracked into your building from the parking lot itself.

City Wide offers different parking lot maintenance plans; when utilized regularly these maintenance services can extend the life of your parking lot tremendously.
