Asphalt Repair Project in Lawrence Twp NJ

As the top parking lot maintenance and asphalt repair contractor in Lawrence Township, NJ, Asphalt Pavement Solutions was recently contracted to help with a project for a local apartment complex.

The parking lot in the complex was aging and had some significant water issues beneath the surface as there were a few areas where water was seeping up through the asphalt. The property owner knew the parking lot needed help but was hoping to avoid a costly major asphalt project for the time being. She received a mailer from us a few years ago and had us work for him then so he called us to look at his parking lot for this project too.

We determined that the parking lot needed asphalt patching, crack sealing, sealcoating and line striping. She was told that our asphalt paving crew would be able to prevent having to have the entire lot replaced to get it by for a few years longer. She was happy to hear this and asked us to get his project moving as soon as we could, knowing that the pot holes and water issues posed liability issues for her property.

We crack sealed 30,111 LF and performed 900 SF of 4’ depth asphalt patching followed by 350,595 SQ of sealcoating. We then did line striping on 20,097 LF of the parking lot and added 382 Reserve Stencils and 382 number stalls to complete the project.

She said the parking lot looks wonderful and that our team was absolutely awesome. We look forward to working with her again in the future!

Wave Goodbye to the Bumpy Ride: Why You Should Include Pavement Repair in Your Business’s Spring-Cleaning Checklist

Spring in the tri-state area means longer days, baseball, blooming bulbs…and, of course, potholes.

Potholes are a result of the same science that makes a soda can explode in the freezer — the expansion and contraction of water. Expansion bends and weakens the asphalt, and contraction leaves gaps behind where the pavement collapses and creates a sizable hole. This process is why potholes pop up in spring as the ground thaws.

If you require the skills and resources of a commercial pavement contractor, our team can conduct large parking lot pothole repairs near Burlington County. Below are a few reasons why you should prioritize this task for your business, facility, or commercial property as we head into the warm weather. Read More→

3 Ways to Protect Your Parking Lot Against Winter Damage

Holiday lights are twinkling, and the temperatures are getting colder — winter is officially here!  While winter weather might make for a beautiful holiday, it can also cause major damage to parking lots. Use these tips to help protect your parking lot before the snow arrives — and enjoy a safer space when spring rolls around.

  • Make the plow’s job easier. Snow plows help remove snow and ice from your parking lot — an important step in protecting against damage. However, if there are shopping carts, trash, or other stray items on your lot that a plow can run over, a plow can easily damage your asphalt. Clear all objects from your parking lot before a snowstorm to ensure that the plow doesn’t damage your lot.
  • Shovel as often as possible. If you allow snow to hang around your parking lot, water can seep into the cracks in your asphalt. When the water freezes and expands, the cracks and potholes in your lot can get bigger. Prevent excessive damage by shoveling as soon as possible after a snowstorm.
  • Repair your potholes before the snow arrives. If you wait until the snow arrives to fill in your potholes, you’ll see more damage to your lot after winter. Protect your customers and your investment by filling your potholes now. If you have a pothole or crack on your lot that requires professional repair, contact Asphalt Pavement Solutions to schedule large parking lot pothole repairs in or around Burlington County before the problem gets worse.

How to Winterproof Your Parking Lot

Parking Lot MaintenancePreparing your parking lot for the upcoming cold season is essential if you want to avoid major damage and enjoy your asphalt for many years to come. Many people don’t realize it, but the winter season can cause a lot of issues for parking lots due to a cycle of freezing and thawing.

During the day and on slightly warmer days, rain and melted snow and ice can trickle into any small cracks or holes that you have in your parking lot. Then, when the temperatures dip below freezing, this water will freeze and expand, which can make small cracks and holes much larger and can cause significant damage and even destroy your asphalt.

Fortunately, proper maintenance can help prevent these things from happening and can make your parking lot look fresh and well-maintained. The first thing you will want to do – and the most critical step – is to have all of your cracks, holes and other imperfections repaired. This will seal water out of the pavement. Duraseal Asphalt offers crack and pothole repair and can fix these issues for you, which will make your parking lot a whole lot safer while preventing winter damage at the same time.

After repairing cracks and holes, (and depending on the time of year) you should also consider sealcoating your parking lot. Sealcoating will help preserve and extend the life of your parking lot, by putting a final “seal” on any damage that can occur through oxidation, water, chemicals and other elements. It will also help disguise all of the repairs that have been made giving it a beautiful, fresh color and look.

Sealcoating is only available from spring through the fall, so if you’ve missed that window, you should plan on crack sealing and repairing any potholes to protect your pavement through the harsh winter months first.

To ensure that your parking lot makes it through the winter without any major damage and to help it look its best, contact Asphalt Pavement Solutions today for more information about its many asphalt-related services and complete maintenance plans.

Will My Parking Lot Look New After Sealcoating, Crack Sealing and Line Striping?

Parking Lot SealcoatingIf your parking lot looks old and worn, you probably wish that you could restore it to the way that it looked when it was first paved. This can be incredibly expensive. The best way to give your lot a like-new leaving appearance, while greatly extending its service life, is sealcoating, crack sealing and line striping. One thing that you might be wondering is if your parking lot will look new after this process, and the answer is yes and no. Regardless, you are sure to be pleased with the end result.

The first step in repairing and maintaining your parking lot is to seal any cracks and patch any holes. After these repairs have been made, your parking lot’s lifespan will be greatly extended by sealing out water and chemicals. The surface will also be much smoother and safer to drive and walk on. However, you will be able to notice the areas that have been patched and repaired at first due to the difference in color between the old and new pavement.

Sealcoating is the next step in repairing and preserving your parking lot. After the pavement has been sealed, the entire parking lot will have a beautiful, rich black hue. This will not only help blend and mask the differences between your old pavement and new repairs, but it will also make your parking lot look fresh and well-maintained. Parking lots that are sealed every two to three years have a much longer service life – sometimes even double.

Lastly, new lines will be painted in your parking lot. These lines will stand out beautifully against the newly sealed surface and will help cover the old preexisting lines. Fresh parking lot lines will also increase the visibility of your lots directives and make your property a safer place for both drivers and pedestrians. Although your parking lot might not look like it was newly paved after this process, it will look close to new again and will look beautifully maintained.

Asphalt Pavement Solutions can make your parking lot look more beautiful than it has in years with this process and provides many different services, such as asphalt paving, asphalt sealcoating, crack and pothole repair, concrete repair and more.
