A Delano, California business owner recently contacted us because their parking lot had water pooling in several areas that had caused serious problems with the asphalt over time. They searched for “the best parking lot repair company in Delano CA,” and found Tri County Asphalt, of course!
We answered quickly and were happy to go out to their commercial property for a pavement inspection to determine what was wrong. Not only was the asphalt pavement at the end of its life, it has suffered from water damage for years. Water is the enemy of asphalt, causing deterioration in several ways. One, it can physically wear away the surface layer of pavement, and when it soaks in, will break down the asphalt emulsion, exposing aggregates. Water can also flow into minor cracks and widen them when it freezes.
Fixing this local parking lot required several steps. First, we removed the old, damaged pavement to expose the sub-base. Next, we repaired and graded the sub-base so that water would flow away from the pavement. We also installed a concrete structure called a v gutter that lets water flow off the asphalt and into appropriate drainage systems. Finally, we paved the parking lot with new asphalt and performed line striping to make it good as new! The Delano CA property owner loves their new lot.
