Top 5 Services To Perform On Your Asphalt Parking Lot & Sidewalks Before 11/30/17

Posted by Steven Brahney on September 19, 2017

As Labor Day has ended, it is the not so subtle reminder that Summer is over and Fall is almost here.  

If you are a Facility / Property Manager in NJ, PA, DE or MD and arrive back to work today; there are less than 60 days left to seal coat your asphalt parking lots and less than 90 days to pave your asphalt parking lots in "acceptable weather" conditions.

Some services such as smaller concrete projects, crack sealing, catch basin repair, and pothole repairs can be completed 12 months a year, weather permitting, they are best completed before Thanksgiving.  On average in NJ, December only offers 7-10 days of optimal weather to complete asphalt & concrete work.

Services best performed before October 31st:



Pavement sealer will help protect your asphalt against gas, oil, grease, oxidation and deicing chemicals before winter and is best performed before 10/15/17. When timed properly- asphalt seal coating will extend the life of your asphalt up to 20 years.

Average Cost: $0.17 - $0.25 per square foot

Services best performed before November 30th:



Hot rubberized crack sealing will seal cracks and prevent small cracks from becoming potholes and large alligatored cracked areas before winter. This is the best money spent as $0.60 - $1.00 per lineal foot spent in the FALL will save $4.00 - $6.00 per square foot as early as the following SPRING.

Crack Sealing is your best money ($$$) spent!

Average Cost: $0.60 - $1.00 per lineal foot



We provide full service paving services from milling, drainage correction, overlays and overlays reinfoced with geotextile paving fabric.

Average Cost: $1.30 - $2.00 square foot



Remediate potholes and large alligator cracked areas before they expand in size and the water penetrates the sub-grade and worsens the issue. We can handle projects from a single pothole to large-scale mill and patch and everything in between. We provide emergency asphalt repairs 12 months a year!

Average Cost: $4.00 - $6.00 square foot



Remediate tripping hazards before winter in sidewalks, ADA ramps, curbs, dumpster pads and other heavily pedestrian trafficked surfaces to mitigate trip and fall law suits. We provide emergency concrete repairs 12 months a year!

Average Cost: $8.00 - $16.00 square foot

The key to understanding "what" has to be done to your parking lot before Winter is by receiving a parking lot evaluation to identify life safety issues and other trouble spots.
