Baltimore Parking Lot Repair: First Impressions make a Difference

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

“Psychologists, writers and seminar leaders caution that you only have seven to 17 seconds of interacting with strangers before they form an opinion of you,” said the president of Measure-X, David Saxby.

This means that most of a person’s first impression is based purely on aesthetic aspects. So what type of first impression is your building front and your parking lot giving your potential clients / customers? If your asphalt parking lot is full of cracks, potholes, and more, you could be sending the wrong message.

Don’t let your asphalt parking lot give your clients the wrong idea about your business. Contact your local Baltimore asphalt contractor today and ask how they can rehabilitate your parking lot.

  1. Asphalt Patching: Asphalt patching, which consists of filling the affected areas with hot or cold asphalt mix, is commonly used to correct potholes and large cracking.
  2. Asphalt Replacement: When parking lot damage is more severe, asphalt replacement, which involves the removal and replacement of the deteriorated area, may be your best option.
  3. Asphalt Resurfacing: Overlaying, also known as resurfacing, which involves the complete re-paving of the asphalt surface, is typically used only in severe cases.

Commercial Parking Lots, Paving Contractors, and Your Business

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Your business parking lot is the first point of contact your customers/clients have with your business. It is what they will base their first impressions on. Because of this, it is important to keep your parking surface free of oil stains, debris, cracks and potholes. But all the asphalt maintenance in the world won’t make a difference if your asphalt pavement was not properly installed by a qualified pavement contractor.

But before you call a potential asphalt contractor, educate yourself on the important qualities of any good commercial parking surface. These include:

  1. Smooth Integration: If you are expanding an existing parking lot, you want to be sure that your new parking surface blends seamlessly with the old asphalt. Feel free to ask your potential parking lot contractor for photos of a similar job he already completed.
  2. Good Base: Without a proper gravel base, your business parking surface will collapse under the weight of traffic.
  3. Drainage: Water and asphalt are not friends. Proper drainage prevents standing water and long-term damage to your parking lot.
  4. Attention to Detail: A good asphalt professional pays attention to the tiniest of details, ensuring that your parking surface is installed properly.

If you have any further questions, contact an experienced asphalt company today – a company like PTG Enterprises. The asphalt experts here have managed hundreds of pavement projects and have the experience you need.
