Importance Of Spring Pavement Inspections

Pavement Maintenance

Learn about the importance of spring pavement inspections.

While sweeping and hosing your parking lot is a big part of pavement maintenance, proper maintenance goes far beyond the occasional cleaning. Property managers should schedule a complete pavement inspection before spring officially begins to restore their parking lot from winter. Call PTG today for an evaluation of your pavement needs due to any damages from winter, solutions to the problem, and proposals for repairs.

Why Spring?

After a cold winter, your pavement is probably in rough shape. Potholes typically occur in the winter more than other months, due to the freezing temperature, snow, and ice. Also, as the weather begins to warm up and the snow and ice melt, natural expansion of the elements will impact the pavement below the surface. For that reason, the transition from winter to spring is the most important time of year to have proper pavement inspections and maintenance.


A pavement inspection is crucial for finding problems and damages below the paved surface. Damages below the surface are not easily spotted, and property managers may miss signs of pavement problems, so it’s important to call in a professional to examine the parking lot. Taking the time to repair damages before spring will save you money, as cracks only get worse with time and will cost you more money in repairs.


The inspection process often includes a cleanup of the parking lot and proposals to repair any damages found. A professional cleaning crew will have the tools to remove dirt and debris, to keep your parking lot smooth and clean from elements getting caught in small cracks. If your parking lot has any cracks that need to be repaired, don’t wait to get the areas sealed. A paved parking lot not only looks better but is also safer for customers. To prevent any issues from getting worse and costing you more money to repair in the future, make sure you schedule your inspection before the end of March.
