Is your Baltimore Business in need of Pothole Repair?

This winter in Baltimore has been a pretty rough one. It seems like it is snowing every other week. And while this may be great news for children (who doesn’t love a snow day?), it is a nightmare for business owners. The freeze-thaw damage on roads and parking lots is very noticeable this winter. There are potholes everywhere!

Is your Baltimore Business in need of Pothole Repair?

As a business owner, it is important to address these potholes as soon as possible. This is true for several reasons, including:

  1. Vehicle Damage: When it comes to vehicles, potholes can do a number of bad things to wheels, tires, and suspension. And you could be held responsible for this damage.
  2.  Injuries and Liability: It is important to protect yourself from potential lawsuits. At the end of the day, the only person liable for injuries caused by potholes is you. According to one attorney, “all [Baltimore,] Maryland businesses, corporations, employers and business owners have a legal obligation and responsibility to properly maintain all areas of their property. This includes parking lots, driveways and sidewalks…” This is why it is so important to address potholes as they occur.
  3. Asphalt Damage: Your pothole is just the beginning. The longer you put off pothole repair, the worse the underlying damage can and will become. As water is allowed to penetrate into the base material, it will quickly erode your parking lot from the inside out.

If you notice a crack, pothole, or other form of asphalt damage, it is important to have it repaired quickly to avoid the issue worsening.

Pothole Repair: Step-by-step

Potholes are caused by failures in the base material. In order to fix potholes, the old asphalt must be removed, a new base applied, and then a new layer of compacted asphalt added.

  1. Water and debris is removed from the pothole.
  2. Clean cuts are made along the sides of the prospective patch area. This helps ensure that the vertical sides of the repair are in sound pavement.
  3. Damaged asphalt is removed.
  4. The hot or cold asphalt patch is applied.
  5. The asphalt patch is compacted.

It is best to leave pothole repair to the professionals, like PTG Enterprises.
