In a previous post here on our blog, we asked the question, “is your parking lot turning your customers away?” and explored how better commercial parking lot maintenance can make your customers’ experience with your business that much more positive.
However, incorporating better parking lot design from the start—when you’re building out a new business location or overhauling a commercial property—will ensure that you’ve built a lot that looks nice and doesn’t frustrate visitors.
It’s a fact. As asphalt ages, it naturally deteriorates. This causes common problems—like the formation of potholes. Unfortunately, if a given asphalt surface isn’t properly maintained, these problems will often occur much faster than they should, and property owners will be seeking solutions they otherwise would not need to—like figuring out the best approach to patching a pothole.
A commercial parking lot makes the all-important first impression for any business. Smooth, solid parking lots with clean, sharp painted lines make a better impression than cracked, crumbing lots with faded lines, of course.
As the owner of a commercial or industrial building in the Mid-Atlantic region, you’re responsible for addressing many preventative maintenance issues to ensure the safety and visual “curb appeal” of your property. However, parking lot maintenance probably does not often rise to the top of the priority list.
Be honest—beyond snow removal in the wintertime, have you thought much about your building’s asphalt parking lots lately?
Asphalt parking lots degrade over time as the binding cement that keeps them together breaks down. Regular parking lot use, as well as sun, snow, and rain cause this breakdown, resulting in crumbling surfaces that also fade in color and stain easily. Sealcoating the parking lot is the most efficient solution to this age-related problem.
Sealcoating is the process whereby a crude oil-based solution is painted onto existing asphalt. This coating restores the color and integrity of asphalt, solidifying any areas that were beginning to crumble. Asphalt sealcoating prevents water from penetrating the surface and breaking down the asphalt. A properly sealcoated parking lot also greatly enhances the overall appearance of any business.
As a business owner or commercial property manager, you’re responsible for keeping many structures and systems in and around your building or buildings in good working order. When was the last time you thought about your driveways, parking lots, and other paved surfaces?
If business expansion is on your mind, or if you have an older property that needs some work, it’s true that you may actively be thinking about these assets now – this is good! Asphalt care and maintenance should be on every commercial property manager’s regular task list, but we realize that it sometimes gets overlooked.
That means you may not know what your options are when it comes to building and improving or simply keeping parking lots and driveways in shape. And that’s why we’re taking a look today at how services provided by commercial paving contractors like Lyons & Hohl Paving are integral to your property management routines.

We are all familiar with the headaches that roadway paving projects cause with related detours and travel delays. These projects are vital for maintaining the safety and integrity of road surfaces that we rely on every day, but they sure can be inconvenient when you’re running late for work or an important appointment. Paving projects in your industrial or commercial property’s parking lots and other paved areas can be just as annoying, as well as disruptive to your daily business activities if they are not well planned and collaboratively managed by both your internal team and your paving contractor.
Did you know that approximately 90% of parking lots in the US are paved with asphalt pavement?
