Parking Lots

Whether you call them asphalt parking lots, black top parking lots, ash-phalt parking lots, tarmac or macadam parking lots… they’re all the same! Asphalt parking lots are described many different ways!

 

.Asphalt is pliable, making it much more forgiving than concrete when it comes to heaving from freeze and thaw cycles. An asphalt parking lot is also very beneficial if you happen to live in a snowy region as the black color of the asphalt can soak in the heat from the sun and melt snow much faster than any other type of parking lot surface.

 

To install a new asphalt parking lot, in most cases, you’ll need blue print drawings which includes sub grade material and preparation specs, asphalt mix design and installation specs, drainage specs, and striping and marking layout specs. In most cases you’ll also need to include concrete curb and gutter, sidewalks and handicap ramp specs as well.

 

In instances where your commercial property is not subject to city and county specifications, you can install a new asphalt parking lot without blue print drawings and engineering but you’ll still need a solid drainage plan! A parking lot can shed large amounts of water and that water must be managed and directed to areas where it will keep from flooding neighbors, streets and even buildings! In this case, hiring a reputable contractor is critical to avoid future problems!
