3 Tips for Getting Your Commercial Property Ready For the New Year

When it comes to welcoming the New Year, many Philadelphia business owners are not focusing on a critical factor that could be impacting their company in 2019 — their parking lot. For us at Stanley Paving, a leader in commercial paving in for the Philadelphia region, it’s all we care about.

If your parking lot is looking sub-par, riddled with cracks and potholes, we have a three-step solution for bringing the lot at your commercial property back to life in the new year.


The first step in protecting any asphalt surface is to ensure that it gets tended to during the winter months. Elements such as rain, snow, and UV sunlight are three of the main culprits that deteriorate asphalt concrete. The best preventative action to take is sealcoating. Our experts at Stanley Paving believe that the best offense is a good defense. By sealcoating, you prolong the surface integrity of the asphalt so that during the winter months of snowfall and rapid melting your pavement will be safe from cracks and potholes.


Once sealcoated, it’s vital to maintain the integrity of the lot by regularly clearing any snow from the surface of the asphalt as well as getting rid of any other debris. While doing this, keep an eye out for any cracks that may have formed on the surface, as these can and likely will develop into much more significant issues if left unaddressed.


If any cracks or potholes begin to form, it’s imperative that they get repaired as quickly as possible. If a crack is let go, chances are high that the damage will continue beneath the surface which will eventually lead to the destruction of the lot and the need for total replacement. If you notice a crack forming, please reach out to our team to get them patched right up.
