The Perils of Potholes

Chris Burns | February 24, 2016 | General

It happens every winter – the freeze and thaw cycle combined with regular plow activity wreaks havoc on your pavement, resulting in a parking lot peppered with potholes.

Not only are potholes an eyesore, they can potentially damage customer or employee vehicles and pose significant safety threats to pedestrians.

The good news?
A proactive approach to parking lot maintenance throughout the winter season will help make spring pothole repairs a breeze.

Throughout the winter, potholes should be filled with cold patch to help lessen the risk of vehicle damage or pedestrian injury.

Because plows and freeze/thaw cycles can remove previous repair jobs, your parking lot should be assessed on a regular basis. Sealing cracks and potholes frequently throughout the winter will prevent water from collecting in cracks and freezing, which can cause further damage.
