Parking lot Repair Services in Milwaukee Wisconsin by Munson Inc can make sure that your parking lots are safe and pothole free.
All asphalt and concrete pavement is subject to atrophy over time. The older the pavement, the more likely the parking lot needs asphalt repair. Surface breaks of any kind, including those that result from seasonal temperature fluctuations, high traffic and extreme weather conditions allow moisture to penetrate below the surface, where it undermines the integrity of the pavement. In freeze-thaw conditions, water turned into ice expands, creating room for more water and additional instability. As the pavement crumbles, a pothole opens up. Asphalt repair and pavement preservation are crucial to extending the lifespan of any asphalt road, parking lot or driveway. Preventative maintenance is the most cost-effective solution to maximizing the lifespan of your pavement. When left untreated, seemingly simple tracks become parking lot pot holes, sunken areas or even large crevices. Before you know it, you’re looking at expensive repairs and in some cases replacement. Parking Lot Repair is a an investment that can be manageable if you have a program to monitor your investment.
Sometimes you don’t notice the potholes forming except during wet weather. In some cases, ponding can occur. Ponding can occur due to a number of design and construction issues, including inadequate site drainage design, insufficient site preparation, poor native soils, or deficient subbase design and installation. A broken water pipe can undermine parking lot base material and cause portions of the lot to sink. Landscape irrigation adjacent to or uphill from the parking lot can allow water to work its way under portions of the parking lot and cause settlement.
Munson, Inc. uses an elevation laser to pinpoint areas on an asphalt parking lot surface in need of correction, and it is usually not until after we have identified lot surface undulations that we can correctly identify the affected lot area(s) and proper measures and methods required for doing the repair right the first time. Most often, the surface area needing correction to eliminate standing water is larger than it appears to the naked eye. Much too often, we are called in to fix parking lots where standing water remains an issue after repair measures by other contractors were implemented. To prevent standing water issues for new or reconstructed parking lots, employ proper parking lot pavement design and construction, with emphasis on correct site drainage (surface, sub-surface, and the parking lot runoff), and pavement traffic loading.
Crack repair – The most economical method used in maintaining the life of parking lots is crack repair. This process includes filling cracks (1/4 inch and wider) with a hot-poured rubberized sealant. The crack sealant reduces pavement deterioration.
Pothole repair and patching – Is an inexpensive step in asphalt maintenance. It also helps keep further damage from occurring to the asphalt thus removing the need to repave your parking lot or driveway.
Sealcoating – Seal coating safeguards your pavement from the materials and elements that can destroy its structural integrity.
A clean and well maintained parking lot adds to the appearance that customers will have when they visit your property. You can consider your parking lot as part of your properties landscape, a poorly maintained parking lot can make your overall appearance look poorly. Kinda like wearing a brown belt and shoes with a black tuxedo.
