H&H Paving Guide: Parking Lot 101
Business owners are rightly concerned about their parking lots, as they are the first impression given by the commercial property. Here’s some of their most common parking lot questions answered.
Why get asphalt instead of concrete?
Since it’s designed to stand up to vehicle traffic, asphalt is the recommended pavement type for most parking lots. It is also flexible under vehicle weight and through temperature changes, unlike concrete, which can crack. Also unlike concrete, asphalt can be resurfaced and more easily repaired.
How long does an asphalt parking lot last?
With proper pavement maintenance services, a parking lot can last from 20 to 30 years!
What affects the lifespan of a parking lot?
There are several factors influencing the life of your commercial parking lot, such as:
- Quality of the initial asphalt installation
- Stability of the aggregate base layer
- A sufficient plan for drainage
- Amount of traffic and weight of vehicles
- Local weather conditions, such as amount of precipitation and temperature changes
How do I make my asphalt parking lot last longer?
Asphalt maintenance & parking lot repairs address all the stressors that asphalt pavement is subject to. Services that can extend the life of your lot include:
- Asphalt sealcoating
- Regular crack filling
- Pavement sweeping at least twice a year
- Prompt repair of any damage
- Asphalt overlay or resurfacing
