Today, we will talk about five ways in which you can enhance the image of your basketball or tennis court in Tampa, Florida

1. Sealcoating

There’s nothing more satisfying than watching a freshly installed, shiny blacktop asphalt pavement. That’s why so many sports facility managers regularly seal coat their asphalt tennis courts. They want to enhance their curb appeal and leave a positive first impression for their visitors!

The best part is that seal coating gets you that freshly laid-down asphalt look without actually having to install asphalt. 

Seal coating is essentially just painting over your surface and enriching its texture and color for a longer time. It intensifies your surface’s color while protecting it from every day wear-and-tear. 

2. Fix The Cracks

While sealcoating protects your asphalt surface for a couple of years, local weather conditions and regular wear and tear will eventually cause cracking on your asphalt basketball court.

Cracks come in all shapes and sizes. One of the most common types of asphalt cracks is the alligator crack, so named because it resembles the web-like skin of a ‘gator. 

But any crack on your asphalt surface is not only unsightly but dangerous as well. Players can stumble upon cracks or twist their feet, which is both dangerous and costly (should someone resort to litigation). 

So, to keep the surface smooth and safe, you should get cracks fixed as soon as you spot them. At Resource Pavement Group, we can help you treat cracks on your basketball court with a range of services, including crack filling and sealing.  

3. Clean the Surface

Sometimes all you need to beautify your sports facility is some good old cleaning. While you should remove dirt and debris regularly, you should also go for professional cleaning at least once a year to get deep stains removed. Deep cleaning will also help to uncover damage on the surface.

4. Paint New Lines

What’s a basketball or tennis court without beautifully painted lines? Lines on the court are necessary to mark service lines or free throw areas, and if you notice lines on your court fading or discolored, you need to get new ones painted. 

5. Repaving

Finally, if your asphalt surface has run its course, you may have to go for a complete replacement. Of course, we can help you explore all your options when it comes to repaving your tennis and basketball courts. Click here to schedule a free consultation today.
