The average commercial car park has to endure a lot of heavy traffic during its lifetime. The weight of vehicles can cause damage over time to any surface, including cracks, holes, and potholes. Additionally, exposure to the weather and hot and cold conditions causes more damage to occur as the surface and the substrate expands and contracts.
The Risks to Your Customers and Employees
The problem is that a parking lot in poor condition can become a problem for the following reasons:
- Injuries: Imagine that one of your employees accidentally trips over a crack in the parking lot that is attached to our office. Do you really want to have to deal with a legal case?
- Vehicle damage: When cracks widen to become potholes, they can become a real problem for vehicles. These potholes can cause damage to both tires and suspension, resulting in expensive car repairs.
It is not only weather and pressure on the car park that can cause damage. In fact, many surfaces are damaged due to the overgrowth of tree roots and subsequent lifting. In all of these cases, the result is an unsightly car park and a dangerous surface. The good news is that a local tarmac company in Harlow can help.
A New Car Park
Tarmac is a very good surface for parking lots and other areas where there is a lot of traffic. The flexible material is superior to concrete and can make your parking lot look like new again.
