Cracks in Your Asphalt Parking Lot Giving You Headaches? Call Blacktop Ohio.
If you've ever seen an actively used commercial building but with an asphalt parking lot surrounding it that appears to have become a home for a jungle of weeds and grass, then you know how badly it can affect the business itself.
The sad part is this doesn't have to happen. Even the most pristine asphalt parking lots will become a target for cracks over time. However, if they are addressed quickly, the overall lot will appear no worse for the wear. If you're starting to see cracks in your Union County or Delaware County, Ohio asphalt lot or drive, call Blacktop Ohio for hot rubber crack filling services. We'll fix you up right.
What Causes Asphalt to Develop Cracks?
Asphalt parking lots, when put down right and properly maintained, can last for 20 or 30 years. But like everything outside, they are vulnerable to their surrounding environment. Rainwater can penetrate inside then freeze and expand in harsh Ohio winters. Heat from the sun can cause asphalt to oxidize over time and become brittle. Both conditions can cause asphalt to crack.
Nor does cracking just happen from natural causes. Parking lots, especially those that get a lot of wear and tear from trucks carrying heavy loads, are often subject to rutting-deep grooves made in the asphalt that open parking lots to ponding, that can let even more water in.
Blacktop Ohio's crack filling services can fix these problems. Our skilled parking lot professionals apply a hot melted rubber with outstanding bonding qualities that not only fills and seals cracks but also provides moisture proof barrier so nothing more can get in.
