Small cracks grow into....
Whether you're a home or business owner, you know how important it is to maintain your parking lot or driveway, for safety, usability and aesthetic purposes. If your pavement is cracked and strewn with dangerous and unsightly potholes, Bob's repair and resealing services are a cost-effective alternative to asphalt paving or replacement; it is far more economical to repair and sealcoat a parking lot than it is to completely re-pave or replace it!

Even cracks that look small and innocuous propagate and get larger over time, and eventually result in potholes--this is especially true in climates where there is a seasonal "freeze-thaw" cycle, where water gets into existing cracks and expands when it freezes, causing the cracks to expand and propagate even more. Be sure to click on the image on the right to see a typical example.

Having your lot re-paved or replaced can be a very costly operation (especially these days, considering the price of oil, which directly affects the price of asphalt). Instead, a pavement maintenance program consisting of proper crack and pothole repair combined with asphalt sealcoating is an effective and economical alternative. Bob and his team use commercial-grade crack and pothole sealers, as well as coal tar asphalt sealers (the same asphalt sealers used in many regional airports, as well as the parking lots found in many hotels, restaurants, hospitals and strip malls).

And then, with the beautiful slate black finish of the sealcoat, it's the best time to repaint the parking lot stripes, numbers, and signs!

Bob's parking lot and driveway repair services include:

The repaired areas started out as small cracks!
Crack and Pothole Repair
Crack repair/filling using commercial-grade rubberized asphalt crack sealer, designed to seal out water and ice, and dries in 2 hours--far better than hardware store-purchased, do-it-yourself liquid acrylic crack fillers. Pothole repair/refilling using asphalt patching.

Asphalt Sealcoating
Sealing provides a layer of protection over the entire lot/driveway. You may have had the cracks and potholes repaired and sealed, but a sealcoat adheres to the entire pavement surface, preventing the rest of it from developing cracks. Coal tar asphalt sealers repel the water from the surface (it has a beading effect, much like Rain-X applied on a windshield). This prevents water from seeping into small fissures and causing damage. It creates a protective layer against traffic and weather, and is resistant to oil, gasoline, road salt and many other staining agents. And because the sealcoat is sprayed on, the process takes far less time than you would think, and you can walk on the surface in as little as 15 minutes (total drying time is between 3 to 4 hours, depending on weather conditions).

Bob's been painting for over 35 years, and that includes painting stripes on parking lots. The same principles apply--choose the best materials (paint that won't wear or fade quickly), clean/prep the area to be painted (this includes removing dirt/debris, making sure the area is dry, and making sure that the parking lot is free of cracks and potholes). Also, sealcoating is strongly recommended, to provide a layer of protection, as well as a slate black finish that will really increase the visibility of the parking lot stripes (Bob has all the stencils necessary for painting numbers, lines, arrows, handicap signs, "No Parking" labels, etc.).

You'll find photos of a few examples of the parking lot/driveway repair work that Bob and his team have performed in the Photo Gallery.
