Asphalt creates uniform and sleek surfaces, significantly enhancing the curb appeal. It also adds a modern and polished aesthetic to your property. This material is easy to maintain, which is why property owners prefer it for improving the overall appearance of their surroundings.

Sealcoating Services

Sealcoating involves applying a thin layer of protective sealant over the surface of the pavement. This process is designed to provide many benefits to the parking lot, including protection against the elements and regular wear and tear. It can help to prevent water damage as well as sunlight damage that can cause the pavement to become brittle and crack.

Over time the dark black color of an asphalt parking lot can fade and sealcoating can help to improve the overall appearance of the parking lot by restoring the color of the asphalt and filling small cracks and imperfections in the surface. Sealcoating is an important part of regular parking lot maintenance and can help to extend the lifespan of the pavement which can save property owners money in the long run.

Patching & Repair

Patching and repair of asphalt parking lots are important maintenance practices to ensure the safety and comfort of drivers and pedestrians using the facility. Damage due to weather conditions, heavy traffic, and regular wear and tear can negatively impact your asphalt parking lot.

Patching and repair of damaged areas involve multiple steps, including cleaning and preparing the damaged area, applying an asphalt patching compound, and compacting the surface. Hiring a professional repair crew to conduct these repairs ensures a long-lasting and durable repair.

Crack Repair Filling

Crack repair filling is an effective way to maintain the longevity and durability of the surface. Heavy traffic loads, weathering or even settlement can all cause cracks on asphalt surfaces. These cracks can leave the surface susceptible to penetration by water or other liquids and cause further damage. Ultimately this reduces the lifespan of the parking lot.

Filling in the cracks with a suitable material such as asphalt emulsion or hot rubberized crack filler creates a barrier that prevents water and other elements from entering the pavement, thus increasing the lifespan of the parking lot.

It also improves the aesthetic appearance of the surface, making it more appealing to customers or visitors. Ignoring cracks in your parking lot can lead to costly repairs and replacements in the future, therefore timely crack repair filling is an essential aspect of asphalt parking lot maintenance.

Overlay

An overlay on an asphalt parking lot is a cost-effective solution to extend the life of the existing asphalt surface without completely replacing it. A brand-new wear surface that improves aesthetics and performance can be achieved by applying a new layer of asphalt over the existing surface. Installing new asphalt can be a time consuming project, but this process has a quick turnaround time since it eliminates the need to remove the old asphalt before installing new asphalt.

The parking lot must be structurally sound to prevent any underlying problems from continuing to damage the new surface. The process involves cleaning and repairing any cracks or potholes on the existing surface before the new layer of asphalt is applied. Overlaying is a great solution for properties that need to refresh their parking lots without significant disruption. With proper maintenance and care, an overlay can last for up to 15 years.

Resurfacing

Resurfacing an asphalt parking lot involves removing the top layer of damaged asphalt and applying a fresh layer of new asphalt. This process is a cost-effective way to restore the parking lot’s surface and aesthetics. During the resurfacing process, any damages such as potholes, cracks, and shallow spots are repaired. The surface is then cleaned, and a new layer of asphalt is applied. This process fills in any small cracks or holes and ensures that the surface is smooth. After resurfacing, the parking lot will have improved driving comfort, curb appeal, and overall functionality.

Removal & Replacement

The removal and replacement of an asphalt parking lot is a significant construction project that requires careful planning and execution.The existing surface must be removed, the site prepared for the new asphalt (including grading and laying down new base material), and the new asphalt must be layered on top.

During the installation process, it is important to pay close attention to drainage and water flow. Proper grading and slope will help to ensure that water does not pool on the surface of the parking lot, which can lead to damage and deterioration over time. Full replacement can add many years back to the life of your asphalt parking lot.

Aquaphalt

Aquaphalt is a revolutionary and eco-friendly solution for parking lots. It is a cold patch commercial asphalt repair product that is made with natural and recycled materials, such as asphalt, stone, and water. Aquaphalt is incredibly durable, long-lasting, and requires no heavy equipment or hot mix for application. Unlike traditional asphalt, Aquaphalt can be installed without any special tools, and it can be used in both hot and cold weather conditions.

Furthermore, Aquaphalt is ideal for parking lots because it can provide a smooth, even surface for vehicles, reduce water runoff and mitigate the need for frequent repairs. Aquaphalt is an exceptional choice for anyone who wants a durable and sustainable parking lot surface that can withstand the harsh environmental conditions.
