If you own a parking lot, then you know maintenance is important, and replacement is expensive. There are plenty of options to maintain a parking lot, such as removing oil stains with a power washer or filling in potholes, but what are the options if you are spending too much time patching the pavement?
Fresh black asphalt can improve curb appeal and ensure a great first impression. However, within two to four years after installing new pavement, you may notice it begins looking lackluster. The faded surface may be riddled with cracks and holes. If you have several years before needing to replace the asphalt, but you want it to look new, then your options are asphalt rejuvenation or seal coating.
While backing out of a parking spot or taking a sharp turn, you hear that dreaded crunch of two cars colliding as you lurch to a stop. You close your eyes and take a deep breath. Now what? Car wrecks are stressful, so we want to provide you the steps you need to take immediately following the car accident.
