Reasons Your Parking Lot Is Looking Rough

Has your parking lot seen better days? Do you long for the time when it was freshly paved and the lines were bright and easy to see? We get it, sometimes things look great when they’re shiny and new but then they lose their luster. Is your parking lot starting to look rough and you’re wondering why? Here are some possible reasons


Parking lots start to break down the older they are. It happens. However, there are things you can do to make sure they last longer no matter how old they are. Keep in mind even with doing everything right you will eventually have to replace your parking lot due to age but try and give it its best chance to increase longevity. 

Rough Weather

If you have experienced a rough winter or even a winter with sudden changes in temperature, these weather-related changes can have a big effect on your parking lot. You might experience heaving and/or pot holes because of this. However, cold is not the only thing that can cause issues. Flash flooding can wreak havoc on your asphalt especially if you do not have proper drainage. 

Heavy Weight

Are you parking large heavy trucks or other materials and equipment in your lot? Are you moving these things around on your blacktop? Heavy weight can cause a lot of issues to your asphalt. If you plan on having items like this in your space make sure to let your contractor know ahead of time so we can do our best to account for this weight. 

Lack Of Maintenance

Are you maintaining your parking lot properly? We know things get busy and you might forget to get that sealcoating contractor to your location. You might not have time to have someone come and take a look at those potholes and repair them. Leaving items like this unaddressed could lead to much bigger problems in the future. Maintaining your lot will save you time and money in the future.
