Parking lot maintenance includes sealing cracks before they lead to larger problems such as potholes.

When maintaining and preserving a business’s parking lot, property managers should be on the lookout for three key signs of wear: potholes, cracks, and damage so severe that it needs to be replaced.

These pavement troubles can lead to consequences ranging from a personal injury suit to decreased business and a negative reputation.

There are other methods for de-icing your pavement without using hazardous rock salt.

Pavement rehabilitation is a means to turn back the clock on that pavement lifecycle and extend the usable life of your pavement.
