Parking Lot Services
Your business’ parking lot is the first impression that your customer gets. It’s important to make sure that your parking lot is both well maintained and attractive. Large potholes, ugly cracks in the asphalt, and fading stripes for parking spaces make for a bad first impression. That’s why Groundshog offers the following services to businesses in Catonsville, Arbutus, Ellicott City, and Baltimore.
Adding a seal coat to your parking lot every 3-4 years does more than just make it aesthetically pleasing. While seal coating does make for a shiny blacktop, it’s also a great preventative maintenance measure. It protects the surface of your parking lot from harmful rays from the sun, oil, gasoline, salt and other chemicals that can penetrate through the asphalt and cause cracks or potholes. Seal coating means less time and money spent on parking lot repairs in the future. We use top of the line seal coating products to guarantee that the preventative investment is worth it.
There isn’t anything much more pleasing to the eye than a parking lot that has been recently laid and striped. The contrast of bright yellow on shiny black asphalt is striking. Visible striping offers more than just a good-looking parking lot, though. Our striping services give your customers an extra line of safety as well as a clear indication of where they can park, walk safely, and which areas to avoid. Fresh parking lot striping will help to improve traffic flow and make your compliance with the ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) obvious, since we will clearly mark spaces for those with disabilities.
Having a paved area for your customers to park and walk is a matter of safety. You want to provide a smooth surface for your customers to walk and drive on. Old parking lots that haven’t been properly cared for or received the proper preventative maintenance can become riddled with holes, cracks, and rock. Sometimes the best option is to re-pave these areas to make them more attractive, as well as to ensure the safety of anyone who uses them. We will work quickly and efficiently to create a parking lot that brings you both pride in it appearance and knowledge that your customers and employees are safe.
Potholes can be dangerous to pedestrians and detrimental to cars. In the cooler months, potholes become a serious problem. Potholes are caused by frequent freezing and thawing of the ground. This is a huge issue when it rains or snows, freezes, and then thaws again. Water can get in cracks in the asphalt and expand, causing the crack to become much larger or a hole to form. We fill these holes and patch them to help maintain the integrity and strength of the rest of your parking lot.
Asphalt patching is important for more than just pothole maintenance. We also patch areas that are cracked or weak. There are a few different types of asphalt patching, and we work to present you with the best solution for your specific problem. Depending on how extensive the damage is, we may choose to use a cold patch or a hot patch. There are many products on the market that allow you to perform your own asphalt patch. We recommend that you turn to an expert instead to avoid any mistakes or accidents. If you haven’t been properly trained, you may do more harm than good to your parking lot. For safety and proper application, we recommend that you call Groundshog to do the job.
While a small crack may not seem like a big problem, it can lead to much larger issues. Potholes are frequently a direct result of water freezing inside cracks in the asphalt and expanding. The integrity and strength of the area directly around the crack is weakened. When cars drive over a weakened area, it leads to further damage to the asphalt. Left unfilled, these cracks can lead to craters. We have the tools and experience to patch these cracks quickly in order to help maintain the strength of your parking lot and avoid allowing dangerous holes to form.
Parking Garage Sweeping
Thousands of people park in parking garages every day. As a result, parking garages can fill with litter, dirt, and debris that bring down the aesthetic appeal and create hazards for pedestrians and cars. Customers are more likely to return to your garage if they know that it’s a clean and safe environment to park their vehicle. Regular parking garage sweeping also helps you maintain the integrity of your parking garage. Sand, grease, or dirt can cause wear to a concrete or asphalt surface, and if it isn’t regularly addressed, that can mean a lot of money in repairs in the future. We provide reliable, efficient, and flexible scheduling for your parking garage sweeping.
