Get Your Asphalt Parking Lot Ready for Spring!

Asphalt Parking Lot Spring Grand Rapids MI

Once the snow is gone for good, many commercial property owners are surprised to see more cracks and potholes than they remembered seeing last fall. The freeze-thaw cycles, snow, ice, sleet, and snowplows can weaken your asphalt parking lot over the winter. Fortunately, our asphalt contractors offer a range of services to get your parking lot ready for spring.

Continue reading to learn about parking lot resurfacing, pothole repair, and other services we offer.

Parking Lot Resurfacing

Our asphalt contractors may recommend parking lot resurfacing if the surface is badly damaged, yet the foundation is in good shape. Instead of having to replace your entire asphalt parking lot, you’ll only have to replace the top layer.

If you’re considering parking lot resurfacing, you won’t want to wait too long. If left unrepaired, water might be able to seep through deep cracks and potholes to destroy your parking lot’s foundation. Once this happens, your only option will be a complete replacement.

Crack and Pothole Repair

It doesn’t take long for small cracks and potholes to grow, especially after they’ve been exposed to snow and ice. If you want to prolong the life of your asphalt pavement, we recommend having one of our parking lot contractors repair the damage before it gets worse this summer.

We can’t tell you how many parking lot replacements could have been avoided if the property owner simply filled in cracks and potholes as they appeared. Crack and pothole repair can help you save money in the long run so you can enjoy your parking lot for as long as possible.


Sealcoating protects your asphalt parking lot from UV rays, precipitation, and automobile fluids. While we understand you’re on a budget, sealcoating can help you save money in the long run by helping you prevent cracks and potholes from forming. Asphalt sealcoating forms a protective layer over your parking lot so it’s shielded from the elements.

It’s important to remember that asphalt sealcoating is a preventive measure. Before sealcoating, our parking lot contractors will need to repair cracks and potholes. That way, your parking lot sealcoating will last for years to come.

Line Striping

Parking lot striping can fade over time, increasing the risk of car door dings and losing valuable parking spaces. When drivers aren’t able to clearly see parking lot striping, they tend to put more space than what’s necessary between them and the other parked vehicles. Likewise, people may also park too close to other vehicles and accidentally ding their car doors.

As a commercial property owner, you’re held legally responsible for maintaining safe parking lot conditions for pedestrians and motorists. For this reason, it’s important that you schedule line striping this spring if you notice the paint is starting to fade. Parking lot striping can also improve the curb appeal of your business, attracting customers.
