Prepare your parking lot for hurricane season.
Now that we’re officially within hurricane season, it’s essential to take critical measures to ensure your parking lot is well prepared for a major storm. There are measures you can take to minimize potential storm damage.
Storm management is vital for your parking lot, and you need to take the right steps to help you overcome the impact of the storm on your parking lot. According to FEMA, many properties do not open after the storm because of the failure to prepare on time. You need to prepare for hurricane season to avoid the hurricane aftermath.
In this case, you may need to consider a professional asphalt contractor for your parking lot. Ensure you don’t expose your customers to danger by exercising the following measures to prepare for hurricane season.
Patching Your Parking Lot and Paved Areas
Heavy rains and storms can harm or even deepen any existing damage on your property. A small patch may enlarge if not repaired in time, incurring more repair costs. Our team inspects your property for potholes and other damages, and will set a repair plan that meets your schedule.
Asphalt Parking Lot Repairs
You need to schedule for asphalt repair as a way to prepare for hurricane season. The ACPLM asphalt repair team will complete a thorough site preparation to ensure the paving is compacted to support the required load during the storm. Our team will also remove vegetation to install a parking lot drainage system.
During the work, the old asphalt is removed and replaced with a new asphalt. If your parking lot requires milling, the leveling of the existing asphalt is done to a specified depth.
The National Asphalt Paving Association recommends the sealing and routing of any existing or new cracks.
Water Drainage System
Water drainage can be problematic after the storm if you do not take early precautions. The drainage work includes storm drains, plumbing, and asphalt drainage. Water drainage system maintenance helps to clear off pollutants such as oil products, which may be a health hazard.
During asphalt drainage maintenance, all the pollutants and debris in your parking lot are removed. Early preparation also helps cut down on the cost associated with severe damages after the storm.
Get It Sealcoated
Asphalt sealcoating is essential when you prepare for hurricane season. It decreases the chances of water penetration, which may result in severe asphalt damage. It also gives your parking lot a fresh look. By sealcoating your parking lot, you save a lot of money that you would otherwise spend on repairs.
