Having a nice-looking parking lot can do wonders for a business that is dependent on vehicle traffic. A parking lot that has pot holes and faded paint lines is not a pretty sight for any business and investing in repairing or re-asphalting your parking lot might mean gain or loss of customers.
Commercial asphalt paving is a service Atlantic Asphalt Paving specializes in because we know that a parking lot is your customers’ first impression about your business. Today customers like to visit a business that has adequate space and is properly designed for a smooth flow of traffic.
Many businesses today follow one or the other structure to include some form of parking facilities. This not only attracts customers but also promotes healthy business competition, giving rise to an increasing goodwill of a business.
As with a number of other industries, asphalt contractors also use modern methods and technologies to create the best commercial asphalt pavements/parking lots.
Doing a commercial asphalt paving job is a complex task which requires precision as well as proper knowledge of asphalt paving.
The process uses multi-layers to make the parking lots more durable and to make sure they don’t succumb under heavy traffic.
Sub-grade materials used to fill the lower layers and then the asphalt added – with the right amount and skills – on the top layer to make the parking lot impregnable.
The pavement’s thickness is paramount to the overall durability of the project therefore it is measured very carefully. Due to numerous technological advances, calculating the thickness has become relatively easier.
Another determining factor is the load the vehicles will exert on the pavement. Therefore it is critical that the material of the highest quality is use. This basically determines the longevity of a commercial asphalt project.
If your business transport routine consists of major heavy traffic then you will need a stronger quality of sub-grade materials.
Another factor to look out for is that in commercial asphalt projects; especially a parking lot, there is a lot of movement and turning around by vehicles.
Compared with a main road or highway, a parking lot is therefore more susceptible to tire scrubbing, peeling etc. And therefore requires a more sophisticated approach to the paving job.
The climate is another ruling feature of commercial asphalt paving. Every material which integrated into the surface should be soil friendly. Therefore it is always advisable to use a local contractor who experienced with the climate of the respective area.
Drainage is imperative to a successful commercial asphalt job. Proper drainage aids in increasing the life of a commercial pavement. Also; standing water and dirty puddles (bird baths) do not appeal to customers and may hurt the goodwill of a business.
