Our Guide to Pavement Repair Options in Federal Way WA
Repairs for Minor Pavement Damage
Crack sealing uses asphalt binders to fill in and seal over pavement cracks that are under 1-2 inches deep and less than 3/4 inch wide.
Slurry sealing is a thick asphalt emulsion with fine aggregates applied over the whole surface to correct minor surface imperfections.
Pavement Repair Options for Full Depth Asphalt Damage
Asphalt patching fixes only the damaged sections of pavement down to the base layer for a permanent pavement repair at a fraction of the cost of repaving.
Asphalt milling and resurfacing removes damaged pavement completely and allows your trusted paving contractors to replace it with brand new asphalt.
Preventative Pavement Maintenance Services
There are also ways to prevent damage to your pavement to avoid expensive asphalt repairs in the future, including:
Asphalt sealcoating both seals minor cracks and provides a physical barrier to water and sun damage to prolong the life of asphalt pavement.
Regular pavement sweeping and cleaning helps keep debris, chemicals, and water from soaking into pavement and causing deterioration.

Guide to Pavement Maintenance for WA Property Managers
Know Your Pavement Maintenance Options
Pavement maintenance services target various types of asphalt damage, and here’s how they work.
Crack filling services do what they say, fill in asphalt cracks with special asphalt emulsions.
Asphalt sealcoating protects the entire pavement surface with a thin layer of asphalt, and slurry sealing is a thicker coat of new asphalt.
Parking lot line striping services keep pavement markings, traffic symbols, and parking stall lines visible.
Start with a Visual Inspection
When deciding which paving services are best for your property, it’s important to inspect your pavement and see what types of damage it has and what needs correction. Things to look for include:
Does your pavement have cracks? How wide and deep are they? Do they connect? Which way do they run across the pavement?
How does the asphalt surface look? What color is it? Can you clearly see parking lines and symbols?
What does water do on the surface of the pavement? Are there pools or puddles?
What do the pavement edges look like? Are they solid or starting to crumble?
The answers to these questions determine which pavement maintenance or repair services are best for your property.

If your parking lot is starting to show any of these problems, it’s time to contact the Seattle area’s trusted commercial paving company: Statewide Parking Lot Service Inc.
Asphalt repair is an expense most property managers or business owners don’t want to deal with because it means their commercial pavement isn’t at its best, but getting parking lot damage fixed in a timely manner is vital to the upkeep of your commercial property.
Why Repair Your Asphalt in a Timely Manner
Pavement Creates Curb Appeal
Asphalt damage like potholes and cracks are not only unsightly, they make your commercial property look neglected and cheap. You don’t want potential customers or tenants thinking that, do you? Then keep your parking lot looking good with regular pavement maintenance and repair services.
Your Parking Lot Keeps Visitors Safe
A smooth, even parking lot and sidewalks are key to keeping both customers and employees safe. Potholes can cause vehicle accidents, and broken concrete walkways can cause pedestrian accidents. Faded parking lines and pavement markings can cause improper parking and fender-benders when visitors can’t see where to drive or park.
Early Asphalt Repairs Save You Money
Just like with home repair, fixing things early saves you money on major repairs later on. When you get crack filling services when cracks are shallow, they won’t get worse and cause problems like shifting and potholes which can be more expensive to permanently fix. Cracks and surface deterioration also lead to water penetration, which worsens damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is crack filling?
Crack filling is the process of injecting a hot pour rubberized sealant into isolated cracks in the asphalt pavement to prevent water from penetrating the sub-grade and stone base.
Why crack fill?
Crack filling is the most cost-effective maintenance for your pavement. Cracks in asphalt allow water under the pavement which causes the base to become unstable during the freeze thaw cycle. Unstable base leads to more cracking and eventual pavement failure.
When should a parking lot be crack filled?
Can be done throughout the life cycle of a pavement; however, only isolated cracks should be sealed, never alligatored areas.
What time of year should a parking lot be crack filled?
Crack filling season begins in April and ends in November. Crack filling can be completed in the winter months if it is dry. It is best to crack fill going into the winter months when the cracks in the asphalt are as wide as possible. In the colder month’s cracks expand and in the summer months, cracks contract.
How often should a lot be crack filled?
Since this is a maintenance operation, it can be done as often as needed. Pavements on a yearly maintenance and repair plan should budget for this once a year.
Why can’t alligatored areas be crack filled?
When alligatored areas appear in a parking lot it means that water has penetrated the sub-grade layer and the pavement can no longer support the weight of the traffic. Crack filling is not the solution at this stage.
How long does it take the material to dry?
The Crack filling material is applied at 300° F but cools to the touch in minutes. A black silica sand is broadcasted over fresh crack filler to prevent tracking.
Will the crack filling material track into my buildings?
Each section must be secured prior to the start of work. The material will track if it is walked on or driven on before it has dried. During the hot months crack filler softens. The black silica sand helps tracking.
What is over banding?
Over banding is the process of “squee-geeing ‘V injecting a layer of crack filling material over the prepared crack leaving a two to three-inch band of material.
Will sealcoat material stick to crack sealing material?
The two materials will bond but since the crack sealing material is designed to flex through a wide temperature range, the sealer will chip off from the crack seal. Expect a color difference between the two materials.
We had our pavement crack filled and some of the cracks re opened?
That happens due to the freeze thaw cycles in the winter. Cracks may re open. Crack filler is applied hot and squeegeed tightly into crack. When crack filler cools off it expands. Crack filler is flexible and moves with the winter movement. That is why crack filling is a yearly maintenance.
