Spring Maintenance Checklist for Your Asphalt Pavement

Follow this spring maintenance checklist for your asphalt pavement.

Parking lots, walkways, and other types of asphalt pavement will require spring maintenance before you know it. With all the other springtime repairs, maintenance, and landscaping you may have on your plate, it’s a good idea to sort out the maintenance your asphalt pavement will need this spring. By considering spring maintenance now, you can get ahead of any tricky repairs or patches you may need when the snow and ice finally subsides. Plus, you can keep your pavement safer and usable all year round by being proactive with maintenance. Here are the essentials when it comes to spring maintenance for your asphalt pavement.


A proper visual inspection is the best place to start with your pavement. When the snow melts, it may leave behind cracks and other damaged areas that may have grown through the winter thanks to freezing water in the ground. Cracks and other damages are unsightly and can allow water to seep through your pavement, causing even more damage. Plus, potholes can be dangerous, causing people to trip and fall or damage their cars. By making a note of damaged areas, you can figure out where to start with repairs and maintenance.


Next, make a note of the last time you had sealcoating for your pavement. Sealcoating is a great form of regular maintenance that can help you reduce repair costs and protect your driveway in the long run. Fresh sealcoating will also help your pavement to look new. Be sure to seal cracks, fill potholes, and every few years, have schedule seatcoating services for your pavement.

Finishing Touches

When your driveway has been thoroughly inspected and prepared, you’ll want to think about the finishing touches. This often means paint. Painting parking lines and other regulation symbols on your pavement will boost your company’s property value and help communicate how important safety is to you. Plus, you’ll want to keep your driveway painted to comply with any traffic regulations.

Regular Maintenance

Lastly, make sure you’re keeping on top of regular maintenance when it comes to your asphalt pavement. Beyond inspecting your pavement when the snow melts in the spring, you’ll want to give it a good visual inspection fairly frequently, keeping up on pothole maintenance and sealing cracks as they appear. By keeping your driveway well-maintained, you can maintain a safe environment for employees, customers, and pedestrians, all while keeping a fresh appearance for your property.
