Location: Lexington, KY
Problem: Cracks running through the parking lot were allowing water to get under the asphalt surface.
Solution: We put down hot asphalt crack filler to stop water from getting in.
Maintenance: Crack fill commercial parking lots every 2-4 years depending on volume of traffic.
This Walmart in Lexington, KY was suffering from deep cracks running through their parking lot. These cracks were deep enough to allow water to get under the asphalt surface. This was especially concerning because water under the asphalt surface can cause severe damage to the sub-base. If the sub-base is ruined, it can cause complete asphalt failure and lead to a costly removal and repaving process.
To prevent this catastrophic damage from occurring, Walmart utilized DC Construction Services. Because these were larger cracks, we put down hot asphalt crack filler. The hot pour sealant is a longer-lasting product than a cold pour and will protect the asphalt sub-base longer. We recommended a maintenance plan of crack filling the lot every 2-4 years depending on the volume of traffic. With this treatment and maintenance plan, we helped to preserve the integrity and lifespan of Walmart’s commercial lot.
