Tips to Close Your Parking Lot During Repairs

As with all constructions, parking lots need routine maintenance to prolong their lifespan and keep it in decent condition. Without maintenance, the asphalt can become dangerous to pedestrians and vehicles alike. No matter what kind of service you are looking for, whether it be sealing, hot-pour crack filling, or striping, Teniseal/Parking Striping Corporation can get the job done conveniently, with outstanding results. How does one prepare? Here are a few tips on how to close your parking lot during repairs.

Schedule During Dry Weather

The first step is to schedule your parking lot repairs when dry weather is in the forecast. In Maryland, one might be able to catch a few days without rain, although humidity tends to be higher in the summer. Having a parking lot that is completely dry before making repairs is essential.

Prepare for Service

To be completely sure that the parking lot will not get wet before, during, or immediately after repairs, one should turn off any nearby sprinkler systems on the property. The last thing you would want is for the sprinklers to interrupt the project.

Alert Employees, Tenants, & Customers

Notify your employees, tenants, or customers in advance. It is always good to have an alert at least a few days beforehand so regulars can plan for where to park during that time. If the entire lot needs closing off, you want to have sufficient space elsewhere for people to park first. If you expect there to be a higher noise level outside than usual, let your employees or tenants know of this as well.

Close Off Parking Lot in Sections

One way to get around closing off an entire parking lot for a day or more is to work in sections. This strategy may be more doable than not, especially with the high percentage of people working from home. Working one section at a time will take longer overall, but preserves convenient parking space in the meantime.

Do Repairs Outside of Normal Hours

Another strategy is to have Teniseal/Parking Striping Corporation perform repairs outside the normal business hours, in the morning or in the evening. Keep in mind that you may need to close off your parking lot for at least 24 hours after the repairs if you are sealcoating the lot. If you are restriping the parking lot, the paint might only take 10-15 minutes to dry. Talk with Teniseal Corp. for more information to schedule your parking lot repairs!
