CONCRETE MAINTENANCE TIPS TO EXTEND PAVEMENT LIFE
January 18, 2022

Concrete Maintenance

Concrete is the most durable product you can use for the paving of parking lots, driveways, roadways, bridges and more. But, over time, even concrete can become distressed and experience cracks and scaling. Concrete maintenance is key to maximizing the life of your pavement and has many benefits, including preserving the structural integrity of your pavement and substantial cost savings over its life. According to a Pavement Coatings Technology Council (PCTC) article shared by ForConstructionPros, cost savings occur when pavement preventive maintenance is applied early in the pavement’s life. “It is much less expensive to keep pavement in good shape if treatments are applied early in its service life or to repair a pavement when distresses are just beginning to appear.”

When designed and properly constructed, concrete parking lots are the strongest and longest-lasting parking/pavement surface available. Just like any other surface, however, it does have a lifespan and will not last forever. The key is to recognize the signs (besides normal wear and tear) that your parking lot is nearing its end and addressing it before significant deterioration occurs.
