Now that summer is here, it is time to make repairs before the weather gets too hot.

From the dreaded pothole to a dinged up curb, it is crucial to research a reputable asphalt maintenance company to perform an inspection and the repairs. After you repave, fill potholes, seal cracks, and/or repaint parking lines, it’s ideal for you to switch from a reactive to a proactive approach to parking lot maintenance.
