Most Common Causes of Parking Lot Potholes

You have likely driven in a parking lot that was degraded and crumbling. The appearance alone is noticeable, but driving on it is even more bothersome. There is nothing more annoying than driving over a pothole and cringing at the way it shakes your car.

As a parking lot owner, it is important to keep up with maintenance as potholes can negatively affect your customer’s experience. That is why you should know the most common causes of parking lot potholes.

Extreme Weather

We cannot avoid the fact that parking lots are subject to the elements. Unfortunately, the weather can easily wear away at your lot over time. Of course, asphalt can withstand quite a bit, but it is important to keep in mind that it is not indestructible. Extreme weather conditions will degrade your parking lot. If you live in an area subject to changing weather conditions, your lot may be more susceptible to potholes.

Water Damage

Nothing is more damaging to your parking lot than water, making it one of the most common causes of parking lot potholes. Water damage happens slowly, so you may not notice it having an impact on your lot. Once water finds its way into a pothole, it will settle deeper into the asphalt, working away at it rather quickly. That is why it is incredibly important to remain up-to-date with maintenance.

Lack of Upkeep

One of the best ways to avoid further damage to your parking lot is to repair potholes and cracks as soon as you notice them. If you fail to repair these issues in a timely manner, it can result in increased damage that will likely cost you more to fix. That is why, at NAC Supply Inc., we provide asphalt crack-filling equipment that will help you repair parking lot cracks with ease.
