Potholes can start off small and get bigger over time. These potholes can get big enough to cause damage to vehicles in your parking lot. You will want to fill any potholes and cracks as soon as you can. Not only can they damage vehicles they can also be tripping hazards for pedestrians.
Make sure your lines for your parking spots are bright, clear and meet at least the minimum sizing issues. Make sure that your handicapped spots are close to your building and provide the adequate spacing according to code. When these lines begin to fade they will need to be repainted.
