Fix Water Damage and Heavy Load Damage on Your Asphalt Parking Lot with Pothole Nerds

Combat Water Damage and Heavy Loads on Your Asphalt Parking Lot with Pothole Nerds

At Pothole Nerds, we understand the persistent damage water and heavy loads can cause to your asphalt parking lot over time. Similar to the Grand Canyon, gradual erosion will eventually take its toll on your parking lot, leading to problems like gator cracks. Our experienced team is here to help you combat these issues and prolong the life of your parking lot without replacing the entire surface.

Identifying the Culprits

  • Gator Cracks: Named after their resemblance to alligator skin, gator cracks can be a sign of water damage. As water penetrates the surface, it weakens the asphalt and causes cracks to form and spread.
  • Heavy Loads: Garbage trucks and other heavy vehicles that regularly pass through your parking lot can cause further damage, especially if they're frequently turning or backing up.

Innovative Solutions

  • Customized Patches: We use a phased approach to address these issues, focusing on specific areas of concern. In one of our projects, we cut out six-foot by 30-foot sections of gator-cracked asphalt, removing only about an inch. We then built up the patches to provide a stronger foundation, adding 3 to 4 inches of asphalt to combat the wear and tear caused by the garbage truck.
  • Reinforced Repairs: By building up the patches, we not only repair the damaged areas but also create more reinforced surfaces where heavy vehicles frequently turn.
  • Improved Drainage: As we fix the asphalt, we also consider water flow and drainage, making sure rainwater doesn't continue to erode the parking lot.

Benefits of Our Approach

  • Cost-Effective: With our repair-focused approach, you can avoid the expenses of replacing your entire parking lot.
  • Durable: By providing a more robust foundation, our repairs can withstand the weight of heavy vehicles.
  • Versatile: Whether you have small potholes or large damaged sections, we can repair a variety of issues to extend the life of your parking lot.
