The COVID-19 pandemic has been a struggle for millions of Americans, and for understandable reasons. Cash flows have slowed or stopped completely in many sectors of the economy, and with that has come hardships. Business owners are being hit particularly hard by the way the pandemic is shaping up, but there is a silver lining available. 

Since there is less commerce overall, now is a perfect time to have your pavement redone. For companies that are temporarily closed, now would be an excellent time to invest in your store’s appearance. In our latest blog, we’ll discuss why now is a great time to have your pavement improved! 

Why Now Is The Perfect Time To Sealcoat

The first reason why this is a great time for laying down asphalt and taking care of your pavement is because of the weather. The late spring/early summer months are a great time to lay down asphalt and do other pavement activities. This is because the warm temperatures keep the pavement liquid as it’s being applied, making it easier to work with. 

Cooler temperatures make the pavement cool quickly, which can make the pavement lay unevenly. The temperatures in EL Paso now are great for pavement now because they keep the pavement malleable. 

In addition to the temperature advantage, the lack of commerce makes this a convenient time to make changes as well. Normally, companies have to allocate valuable time to having their pavements worked on. With this pandemic, however, many companies have empty parking lots anyway. 

The coronavirus pandemic has presented an interesting opportunity for businesses to update their parking lots. 

Why It’s Important To Maintain Your Pavement 

If you haven’t been paying attention to your pavement, then now may be the best time o start. A bad parking lot can cause you to lose money in more ways than one. 

The first reason, and one of the most important, is perception. Think of the front lawn of your home. If it’s full of weeds, tall grass, and various creatures, it may give off the wrong message before people even enter the home. Your parking lot is the same way. A well-maintained parking lot can make your store stand out even more than usual. 

Bad parking lots can also be dangerous. Cracks and potholes can be dangerous for people who can’t see them, both for cars and pedestrians. If the issues with the parking lot are egregious enough, you may even be sued for it.
