It is now a new year, but it is not a new season by any stretch of the imagination. It is cold out there and will be for a while still. It is also going to be raining a lot, as it always does in the winter. If we are lucky (or unlucky, depending on your attitude) we might even get snow. All this is normal for this time of year and as a person with a business, you are well prepared for this to happen. The one thing that you might want to double check though, before it is too late, is your parking lot. You should know if you need parking lot repairs.
There are a few reasons why you might need parking lot repairs soon. The first one is the weather. Even the best poured asphalt will sooner or later succumb to the strains of weather extremes in Vancouver. Our weather is not as extreme as they might have on the east coast, but we still have some cold times followed by warmer days, rain and then cold again. This can lead to the asphalt expanding and contracting and that will lead to cracks. Cracks can start small, but if not attended to quickly, they can become a problem.
The other reason you might need parking lot repairs is because of human error. There are many different asphalt mixes to choose from,depending on the area that needs asphalt. If you had someone pour the asphalt mix in your parking lot and they chose the wrong mix, it could mean you are more prone to cracks and will need to call someone for parking lot repairs. Make sure that you have the right asphalt for your parking lot and the right sealing material when you attempt filling cracks yourself.
No matter the reason for why you might need to call someone for parking lot repairs, you should tend to it sooner rather than later. If you call someone soon enough, all you need to do is fill some cracks. If you wait too long you might lose your entire parking lot for a complete overhaul of the asphalt. This can be bad for the bank account and business, if your customers don’t have a place to park. This is something to keep in mind when you see small cracks, but choose to ignore it.
