Nothing is worse than having a parking lot filled with damage that makes navigating your lot unpleasant and difficult. Fortunately, you’re not powerless against this common occurrence. There are plenty of methods that you can use to repair your asphalt and bring your lot back to the excellent condition that you’ve become accustomed to. In this guide, we’ll dive deeper into the various asphalt repair options you have at your disposal.

1. Crack Sealing Your Asphalt Lot

When you live in the Chicago suburbs in areas like Oak Brook, Naperville, or Itasca, just to names a few, cracked asphalt is something that you’re probably already accustomed to. But why is this? Whenever it snows or rains, the water that seeps in between existing cracks is allowed to freeze, expand, and thaw, (best known as the freeze-thaw cycle) causing further damage that slowly breaks down the asphalt over time.

One option to pursue, whether on your own or with the support of asphalt repair contractors, is to crack seal your asphalt lot. As the name suggests, crack sealing helps to fill in the cracks to ensure that no water can make its way into the existing cracks and continue to damage your lot. Just make sure that you select a sealant that is suitable to the varying temperatures and won’t break down during the freeze-thaw cycle.

2. Resurfacing Your Asphalt Lot

Asphalt paving can seem like an extensive process, but resurfacing may be the answer to your current asphalt issues. Resurfacing is the answer to the problem when you don’t need to pursue a full lot replacement but still want to take care of any potholes or cracks that exist on your lot. There’s a lot of prep work that goes into resurfacing, and you’ll find that it is a major project. However, once the new asphalt has been laid down and your lot looks brand new, it’s worth the effort.

3. Removing or Replacing Your Lot

If you have an asphalt lot that is no longer recognizable and would not benefit from the minor repair processes listed above, turning to an asphalt repair company for asphalt repair and seal coating is going to be the best option for your needs. The right company will be able to go through the process of removing or replacing your lot and taking preventative measures like asphalt seal coating, which protects against damage caused by UV rays and other factors that contribute to the cracks in your lot. With the proper support, your brand new lot will fare much better in the coming years and hold up against the elements and beyond.
