How To Know Your Parking Lot Needs Attention?

Catching parking lot issues early will save you immeasurable time, money, and resources in the long run. The experts at Burnaby Blacktop have combined decades of experience when it comes to identifying and fixing small problems before they transform into massive challenges. While we certainly excel at identifying small issues like asphalt drainage or pothole repair issues on your parking lot, the fact is we can’t be around all the time. Instead you, too, should become familiar with these four signs that your parking lot needs a little added attention.

The 4 most common Parking Lot Issues and Repairs:

1. Cracks

As you examine your parking lot, cracks are one of the easiest weaknesses to notice. Excessive cracking in your asphalt or concrete can lead to moisture seeping into its foundation. It can cause major underlying issues requiring extended and expensive solutions. Regularly seal coating and crack sealing when you first notice a crack are great ways to stay ahead of any serious damage.

2. Water Leakage

Small cracks in concrete are relatively common, but large cracks accompanied by leaking water start to become a major issue. Major leakage into your parkade membrane can cause serious issues in the underlying embedded steel. It can be tricky sometimes to identify leakage in real-time, but rust stains along adjacent walls can be an easy-to-identify indicator as well.

3. Pooling Water

Pooling water is an easily identifiable red flag when it comes to the overall condition of your parkade. Excessive pooling can, and often does, lead to major damage and is best addressed by reassessing your asphalt drainage or concrete drainage system. In many instances, a new drainage installation will solve your pooling problems. As with all parking lot repairs, it is best to identify these issues sooner rather than later. If you are looking for Vancouver parking lot drainage experts, look no further than Burnaby Blacktop.

4. Faded or Cracked Parking Lines

Parking lines are a matter of safety when it comes to your parkade. Any faded or cracked lines should be addressed immediately. Line marking and line painting is easy task, yet it makes all the difference for your clients, guests, visitors, or tenants. Faded and cracked parking lot lines are easy to identify. They can be a quick fix if you stay on top of it. As one of Vancouver’s line painting and line marking companies, Burnaby Blacktop is a surefire way to keep your parking lot fresh and functional.

Parking lot repairs and issues can escalate from no big deal to a massive problem very quickly.
