1. The Two Most Important Reasons You Should Repair The Cracks and Holes in Your Parking Lot:
You don’t want moisture to penetrate under the asphalt surface.Cracks and holes allow water to penetrate and seeps under the asphalt surface, which will almost always create a soft spot. Also, if you live where the temperatures create ground freezing, then this moisture under the asphalt surface will freeze and push the pavement up. Don’t forget to sealcoat your asphalt parking lot for added protection against moisture.
2. Vegetation can grow in the cracks of your asphalt.As they get bigger, plant roots that grow between cracks and out of potholes in your parking lot can actually push the pavement up and create even more damage to your asphalt parking lot. All of these conditions can be avoided by practicing good asphalt maintenance by keeping cracks and potholes filled as they occur and then sealcoating to protect your entire parking lot.

What are working cracks?
Working cracks are horizontal and/or vertical movements in cracks greater than 0.1 inches. An example of working cracks is a transverse crack. Crack sealants are rubberized and have the ability to seal the crack while staying flexible with the pavement’s movement. Beneficial for active and spreading cracks that continue to extend in size and severity over time, crack sealants stop water and debris from entering the crack, protecting the longevity of the pavement and thus repairing your asphalt parking lot.
