Unlike concrete, asphalt will bend before it breaks. This makes asphalt the go-to material for outdoor sporting courts. Projects like these demand a level surface finish while maintaining just enough slope for proper water drainage.

How to Fix a Crack in Your Parking Lot

March 12, 20243 min read

How to Fix a Crack in Your Parking Lot

Have you ever walked through a parking lot and stumbled over a crack? Not only are these cracks unsightly, but they can also pose safety hazards and damage the vehicles that park on them.

Luckily, fixing a crack in a parking lot isn't as daunting as it might seem. Check out this easy-to-follow guide on how to repair these cracks.

As always, if you need some help with this process, just fill out our form here.

Understanding the Importance of Crack Repair

Before we dive into the how-to, let's discuss why it's crucial to address cracks promptly.

Cracks in asphalt or concrete surfaces allow water to seep through, weakening the sub-base.

Over time, this can lead to more significant issues such as potholes, which are more challenging and expensive to repair. Regular asphalt maintenance and timely repairs can extend the lifespan of your parking lot and save you money in the long run.

Materials You'll Need for a Quick Fix:

To repair a crack in your parking lot, you'll need the following materials:

  • Cleaning brush or blower

  • Crack filler or sealant

  • Trowel or applicator tool

These materials are readily available at most hardware stores, making it easy for you to get started on your repair project.

Step-by-Step Guide to Repairing Cracks:

  1. Clean the Crack: Begin by removing any debris, dirt, or vegetation from the crack using a brush or blower. This ensures the filler adheres properly.

  2. Choose the Right Filler: For smaller cracks, a rubberized asphalt-emulsion crack filler works well. For larger cracks, you might need a more robust filler or patching compound.

  3. Fill the Crack: Using your chosen filler and applicator tool, fill the crack according to the product instructions. Be sure to overfill slightly, as the filler will settle and compact.

  4. Smooth It Out: Use a trowel to smooth out the filler, ensuring it's level with the surrounding surface.

  5. Let It Dry: ***VERY IMPORTANT*** Allow the filler to dry completely. This might take a few hours to a day, depending on the product and weather conditions. If this is a public parking lot, make sure the area is blocked off until the filler is cured. We've heard horror stories of customers driving over someone's DIY repair and taking the entire filling with them, damaging both their car and the repair.

Asphalt is the most commonly used material for driveways, roads and parking lots; and there is a good reason for that. It is resistant to water, heat and cold, making it very durable. The most common failure mechanism is fatigue from repeated loading over time, however, if the asphalt is applied properly, it can last a long time without giving you any trouble or headaches. When it comes to industrial or commercial paving, the proper application of asphalt determines how durable and long-lasting it will be. One of the biggest mistakes when applying asphalt is not preparing the surface properly. This includes removing the old asphalt, grading, compacting the soil and applying the crushed rock and subsoil.

A well-maintained parking lot goes a long way, considering the parking lot is a visitor’s first impression of the place. Here are some tips to keep your parking lot good as new:

-​Routine inspections:

-Fill the cracks, clear the chemical deposit and clean the entire area.

-Sweep it often: Do not let water or moisture stay on asphalt for too long. It weakens the surface.Inspect drains: A water logging problem can become huge in moments.

-Always clear clogged drains.Clear oil and chemicals: Oil and chemicals deteriorate the material that holds asphalt together. Clear it soon as you see it.
