It’s a fact of life in our industry—potholes happen. Whether it’s a parking lot or a road surface, potholes can form anywhere. Potholes form in both asphalt and concrete because of regular use by vehicles and exposure to weather and certain chemicals. Even the highest-quality paved surface can form potholes if proper precautions aren’t taken.
How Potholes Form
After a certain amount of time, exposure to sun, rain, leaking automobile chemicals and the sheer weight of the vehicles can create potholes. Often times, when grass or other landscaping is adjacent to a paved surface, the water from the irrigation system causes damage to the surface. Once potholes form, it’s important to have them repaired right away. If left unattended, water can accumulate in the potholes and under your parking lot or road surface. Once that happens, it can cause serious damage to the surface. The sooner you have them repaired, the better.
