Commercial property managers know that catching potholes early makes all the difference in the amount of repairs that need to be done long-term. If there are potholes present in the parking area, our asphalt cold patch rapid-set product will help you to fill them quickly and easily. Its unique chemical makeup means that it adheres to the foundations inside the pothole, preventing any spreading. This rapid-setting cold patch works in any season, and its simple three-step process is all you need to get the job done properly so it lasts.
Parking Lot Sealcoating: Proactive Maintenance Saves Expensive Asphalt Parking Lot Repairs
If you're waiting for your pavement to totally turn gray (oxidize) and alligator cracks to form in depressions, you're adding a huge amount to your property maintenance bill that could have been prevented. Invest in the right equipment to get the job done efficiently and inexpensively, every 2-3 years.
Now, although homeowners often apply sealer with a broom or squeegee, that's simply not practical for large areas like the ones you'll be doing. If you can water your garden, you can sealcoat your parking lot using one of our professional-grade parking lot spray systems. Our sealcoat and sealcoat systems allow you to sealcoat parking lots at walking speed.
We offer commercial grade asphalt sealer in 55 gallon drums, and 275 gallon totes. A quality sealer forms a protective layer over the asphalt to seal out water, UV rays, and exposure to the elements. This extends the life of the asphalt, and will save you money in the long run (versus having to repave, which is costly). For help with calculating sealcoat amounts, try out our blacktop calculator.
Choosing a line striping machine is actually fairly easy once you know what to look for. If you have a small parking area or this is a one-time job, a small striper like the AK Asphalt Striping Machine will get the job done fast. For line striping larger lots, the Titan PowrLiner 550 or 850 are great options for parking lot owners. The 850 also features a detachable spray gun to spray stencils without changing equipment.
For small contractors or property owners/managers with a lot of parking areas, a bigger line striper will do the job more quickly. For those who line stripe nearly every day, the largest PowrLiner models are hydraulic stripers that are perfect for heavy-duty linestriping.
If working on airports, roads, or full-time jobs on parking lots, the Titan LazyLiner seat or self-propulsion kit will make the job considerably easier and more comfortable!
