Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), October 17, 2014 – Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc. (, the Greater Toronto Area’s leading pavement maintenance and repair company, is weighing in on the importance of repairing cracked asphalt before the start of the winter season.

“It’s almost the beginning of the winter season here in Toronto, and cold weather can have a harmful impact on the asphalt in a parking lot if it’s not cared for properly or repaired prior to the season,” says Lance Bradshaw, president and CEO of Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc. “We can’t stress enough how important it is to maintain or repair asphalt before the cold weather sets in.”

Bradshaw advises to invest in proper sealcoating, make sure the line stripping is on point and clearly visible, and check for any cracks in the asphalt. These are all important ways to ensure a parking lot remains safe for the duration of the winter in Ontario.

“Asphalt cracks occur, in part, when a surface hasn’t received the proper sealcoating. Oxidation begins to set in and cracks start showing in the surface, which then get filled by water, which worsens the damage,” he adds. “Preventing these problems in the first place by proper maintenance is the first step, but if cracks are already present, then repairing the surface is the next logical step.”

”Line stripping in Ontario is a crucial aspect of a safe driveway, but asphalt cracks often disturb its visibility,” Bradshaw concludes. “Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc., however, has the knowledge and experience to properly repair asphalt cracks, and we urge clients to get those repairs started before the winter to avoid any complications.”
