The Art of Maintaining a Parking Lot

If you’re the owner of an asphalt parking lot, you often trace your thoughts along a plain of flatness. However, if you are, you probably also need to upkeep its flatness, beauty, and sheen, so you’d be wise give our commercial concrete contractors near Philadelphia a call. However, here are some things you can do to keep it looking great all on your own.

Keep It Clean

Though it may seem obvious to some, the cleanliness of your parking lot is essential if you wish to please the public. Debris doesn’t only mean rocks, leaves, dirt, and all the all-natural sorts. We keep an eye out for any stray and sharpened nails—the tire busters that they be. Accumulations of dirt and water, aside from soaking socks, form makeshift ponds, giving way to potholes. Solid as asphalt may feel, it slowly softens, submerged in large bodies of water. Don’t forget about the trash that collects, either. As you’re sweeping, make a habit of scanning for any concrete imperfections, necessitating a commercial paving. Montgomery County, PA and the surrounding areas appreciates our professionalism, so rest assured we will be there to help keep your property clean and sturdy!

Root out the Weeds

We often pose the question: would you permit a jungle of weeds to flourish near your tiled swimming pool? Do not underestimate the havoc that weeds can unleash underground, as their roots shove, forcing themselves up to the surface. You’re left with a parking lot riddled with cracks, and an infestation of green. Consult your local home department store, or any gardening store for a human and pet-friendly weed killer.

Beware of Dripping Oils

Beautiful as your parking lot may be, it’s likely to succumb to dripping oils, grazed as it is by automobiles and their engines. Oil, aside from leaving an ugly, greasy residue, pools like all liquids, wrecking its own havoc. Parking lots gradually give way to oil damage, their integrity, and coating, dissolving day by day. The sooner you catch this, the sooner you can repair or reseal your lot. A sealcoating comes with a certain charm. With a crew like ours, Associated Paving Contractors, Inc., we can guarantee your lot will be looking brand new after we’ve trailed over.

Preparing Your Property for The Cold

Most people won’t think about preparing their asphalt driveway for the fall so early while it’s still hot out – which is why most people have problems with their driveways that need fixing after the winter is over. Here are a few preemptive services that the premier residential and commercial concrete contractors of Philadelphia and other nearby areas can administer to help you prevent damage to your asphalt this upcoming cold season before it’s too late.

Crack Repair

When water or snow seeps into the cracks in your pavement, it will cause those cracks to expand even further, increasing the risk of more potential damage. Repairing chips and cracks before they get out of hand can significantly prolong the life of your driveway. If these flaws go unchecked for too long, your driveway may be beyond repair. Instead, you’ll need to replacement which is much more costly.


If chips and crack cover vast areas of your driveway, applying an asphalt patch to the troubled spots may be the answer. We can overlay asphalt to those damaged sections or patch brand new asphalt. Depending on the severity of the damage, you might need a complete removal and replacement.


One of most effective techniques when it comes to preventive care for your asphalt is sealcoating. It extends the life of your driveway by protecting against the sun’s UV radiation, as well as liquid and oil spills while improving the way it looks. Let us administer a layer of sealcoat to your driveway before it begins to get cold again.
