Toronto, Canada, July 31, 2015 – Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc. (www.SureSealPavement.com), the Greater Toronto Area’s leading pavement maintenance and repair company, is responding to Mike Holmes sharing his opinion that mid-summer is the best time to conduct pavement repair.
In a recent article for The National Post, celebrity contractor Mike Holmes advised readers that mid-summer is the “only” time for pavement maintenance and repair, as the hot weather means that new paving on a driveway or parking lot will dry faster. High temperatures also mean the material will expand; which provides better sealant.

“Many property owners don’t realize the importance of properly maintained pavement when it comes to providing water drainage,” says Lance Bradshaw, President and CEO of Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc. “Not only that, but having a poorly maintained parking lot can send the wrong message to customers and since summer is when employees tend to go on vacation, it will be less crowded.”
Holmes also explains that it’s important to use the correct materials. Asphalt and concrete are the two most popular options for property owners because of the materials’ durability, but they require regular maintenance. He also recommends regularly resealing the area. However, doing so too often can cause issues, so he advises only resealing a parking lot or driveway every three years. One telltale sign that resealing or repair is needed is if the paving is beginning to crumble.
“It isn’t really a well-kept secret that summer is the best time to repair paving on a driveway or parking lot, so it’s a busy time for contractors,” Bradshaw concludes. “That’s why those looking to hire a contractor are advised to book now to avoid waiting.”
