Your parking lot says a lot about your business, and an asphalt parking lot is one of the best options.

If your parking lot needs to be replaced or if you’re installing a brand-new parking lot, there are many advantages to choosing asphalt over concrete or any other options. Your parking lot is the gateway to your business and is often the first element that greets customers, clients, and other guests. Having a parking lot with a smooth surface and a clean, and sleek look shows your attention to detail and the amount your care for your property. Asphalt paving will deliver these characteristics and stand the test of time.


Asphalt is a material that retains its strength for an extended period of time. Damage prevention just requires a quality installation and sealcoating the surface. Your asphalt parking lot will be virtually waterproof and therefore, resist erosion from rainfall. You’ll also benefit from a short installation process as asphalt is ready for use after just a 48-hour drying and settling time.   

Low Maintenance

After you’ve installed your asphalt parking lot, there isn’t much you need to do to help keep its appearance and structure looking like new. Preventative maintenance is the best way to thwart real damage, which includes sealcoating the surface. Oil and other debris may stain the surface, so periodically give your asphalt a good cleaning to help maintain its smooth appearance. In the event of cracks or small holes, immediately address those isolated areas and your parking lot won’t be compromised by those small repairs.  

Environmentally Friendly

One fact that many people may not realize is that asphalt is an environmentally friendly option for paving your parking lot. It’s derived from recycled materials and is also completely biodegradable. This means that the earth is left unharmed by its use as it won’t pile up in landfills and can be continuously reused. This leads to a direct reduction in pollution and lessens the impact that your building projects will have on the environment.
