Catch Basin Repair and Installation in South Florida
The high amount of rain South Florida experiences each year can cause significant water damage to buildings, roadways and other vital structures. Parking lots are especially prone to damage because standing water causes asphalt to deteriorate. This deterioration can be a major liability for property owners and managers, increasing the risk of potential injuries and accidents.
Catch basins are an essential structure to control the flow of stormwater in your parking lot. If you need to install or repair a catch basin, The Paving Lady can help. We offer installation and repair services to ensure your parking lot drainage system operates reliably.
Why Parking Lot Drainage Systems Are Important
Proper water drainage is crucial to the reliability and longevity of your parking lot. Without drainage structures in place, water can pool on the parking lot surface and cause significant damage. When water settles, it separates the asphalt mixture from the aggregates, causing the asphalt to deteriorate. Aggregate separation happens slowly, so the extent of the damage may not be immediately apparent.
Common problems due to pooling stormwater on asphalt include:
- Cracking: Water pressure causes asphalt to crack.
- Sinking: Water seeping through cracks can cause your rock base to fail, resulting in a depression in your asphalt.
- Rutting: Wheel-shaped ruts or depressions form on areas of deteriorating asphalt that experience high traffic.
- Raveling: Water damage can cause the top layer of asphalt to disintegrate.
The catch basin in your parking lot redirects stormwater to prevent these issues. Because catch basins can also degrade or become damaged over time, regular catch basin maintenance is vital to ensure their structural and functional integrity and preserve your parking lot.
