The Importance Of Crack Filling Your Parking Lot

Learn the importance of crack filling your parking lot.

Asphalt parking lots look great when well-maintained, but every parking lot is bound to experience cracks at some point. Sealcoating allows parking lots to last at least three to five years before any cracks show, but when these cracks appear, they should not be ignored. Cracks can quickly cause more damage or can turn into potholes in your parking lot, so it’s crucial to fill cracks as soon as possible.

What Is Crack Filling?

Crack filling is an important maintenance service for all asphalt surfaces, as extensive damage can occur from unfilled cracks. Cracks in asphalt pavement may turn into potholes in the winter, and water can penetrate the cracks and saturate the subgrade. This weakens the asphalt, and once cars drive over the area, the pavement will collapse and form a pothole. Cracks that are ¼ to ½ inches should be filled with crack filler, while larger cracks must be dealt with by a professional pavement company.

Benefits Of Crack Filling

There are significant benefits to sealcoating and crack filling asphalt parking lots, including the reduction of long-term repair costs, protects your pavement from harsh elements and water penetration, enhances curb appeal for your building, prolongs the life of your pavement, and limits liable by reducing dangerous cracks and potholes.
