A few weeks ago, a property owner who managed a strip of restaurants with a shared parking lot contacted us. He explained that the parking lot had received a lot of salt damage over the last winter, so he needed to get some of the potholes patched as the busy summer season wound down. He called us in to do the parking lot repair in Roseville, and we were able to get the repairs done very quickly for him before it became too cold.
We began the parking lot repair process.
We arrived first thing Monday morning to start the asphalt repairs. The entire crew was thrilled to see the sun shining and there was no rain in the forecast, which is perfect for the repairs that were going to be made to the asphalt. The crew began cleaning the asphalt thoroughly, so all the dirt, chemicals, and debris would be removed. The crew was going to apply spray inject patching to the potholes, which is a cost effective way to repair the asphalt. To use the spray inject patching you have to have the right equipment, which we of course do.
The crew has to first clean the asphalt, then the area of the pothole has to be cleaned with compressed air so all of the debris and loose material will be removed. Then, the crew applied a tack of hot asphalt using more forced air. The crew will then place a dry coat of aggregate on the top of the patched area to prevent any tracking that could occur. The forced air compacts the patch in layers until the parking lot patching is finished. This is a successful and long lasting way to repair potholes. We have been using this method for quite some time and it works wonderfully. Even the Minnesota Department of Transportation named the spray inject patching as the best way to repair asphalt.
The crew had the parking lot maintenance done on time and within the budget. We were able to have the entire parking lot done in less than two days. The client was also very pleased with our performance. He called the office to say the crew did a wonderful job and he was happy that he called the best asphalt contractor around. He said we exceeded his expectations, and that the parking lot repairs looked great.
