At Stripe Rite we offer parking lot maintenance services such as asphalt patching, de-icing, and snow removal. Minor fixes now will save you money on major repairs in the long run. We have come up with a list of tips based on decades of experience that can help parking lot owners ensure your parking lot survives winter.
Make Repairs Now
Before any major storms roll into the Pacific Northwest, look at your parking lot. Any cracks you see on the surface are places that snow, water, and ice get into and cause bigger problems; like becoming potholes. A professional can find issues and take care of them before they cause other problems for you.
Rocks and debris can cause plow blades to gouge or scratch your pavement; which can cause cracking. Take the time now to sweep your lot and remove large rocks before the first snowfall. This can help reduce future maintenance costs on your asphalt.
Our experienced crews will help keep your road or parking lot as functional as possible by focusing on the smaller patches and potholes. We offer hot asphalt patching, and when temperatures fall, we also offer cold patching to ensure that your parking lot remains flawless.
It is important to make sure that your lot is cleared or shoveled. Waiting for it to pack and freeze exposes your lot to damage from the freeze-thaw cycle. Removing it quickly can reduce the chances of damage to your asphalt. Snow removal helps to ensure the safety of your customers and employees; as well as keeping patrons visiting your business. Removal is a great way to show customers you care about their business and safety. By keeping the parking lots and sidewalks cleared by utilizing a commercial snow plowing service, like Stripe Rite, you can rest assured that the proper equipment and methods are being used.
De-icing agents may be great for you and your customers, but they can be bad for the environment and your asphalt or pavement. Stripe Rite utilizes several different methods, based on your needs.
