What to Consider Before Paving a Parking Lot?

June 08, 20232 min read

WHAT TO CONSIDER BEFORE PAVING A PARKING LOT?

Are you thinking about paving the parking lot of your office building or plaza? There are several things you need to factor in before you can start the project. So, what do you need to be thinking about? We'll go into everything in detail below. Keep reading to ensure you end up with a great finished parking lot!

1. Paving a Parking Lot: How Large Will the Lot Be?

Before you start paving a parking lot, you need to know the size of the area being paved. In some cases, this is easy to determine. For instance, if you're repaving a parking lot, you can measure the size of the existing lot. However, if you're putting in a new lot or expanding the current lot, you'll need to make sure you have the correct measurement.


2. Assessing the Subgrade Foundation

Did you know that paved parking lots aren't just made of a layer of asphalt? Parking lots feature subgrade foundations that are prepared before the asphalt is poured. Subgrades usually consist of packed soil, and a strong subgrade promotes proper drainage. A subgrade with poor drainage capabilities will cause your lot to wear away faster. You should hire professionals to assess your subgrade foundation and make alterations to it as needed.


3. What Kinds of Vehicles Will Drive Over Your Parking Lot?

Why would this matter, you ask. The weight of smaller vehicles (such as cars) doesn't impact the asphalt as much as larger trucks. For this reason, larger vehicles and trucks leave more wear and tear on the pavement. You'll need more asphalt layers if you anticipate heavy-duty trucks and machinery driving on it often.


4. What Time of Year Will Your Paving Project Start?

When it comes to asphalt application, timing is everything. This is especially true for people living in Canada because the onset of the snowy season brings precipitation. Water is the ultimate destroyer of asphalt. When you're paving a parking lot, it's best to do so under dry conditions. So, make sure you plan your project ahead of time.


5. What Types of Asphalt Do You Need?

When repaving a parking lot, you would want to select the grade of asphalt that can withstand the Canadian climate. Pavemar Paving can provide the right asphalt to fit your needs. Fine-graded is the best choice for many parking lots because it prevents moisture from seeping through.

WHY CHOOSE ASPHALT DRIVEWAYS? 

Asphalt is a popular choice among homeowners for driveways due to its durability and cost-effectiveness. Many companies use recycled asphalt for the base layer, which is environmentally friendly and more affordable than fresh asphalt. These factors make asphalt the ideal material for your driveway.

SEAMLESS FINISH

You don’t need to worry about compromising the aesthetic appeal of your property as asphalt gives a seamless finish.

DURABLE

Asphalt is known to withstand harsh weather conditions and natural elements better than other materials and is less likely to get damaged easily.

EASY TO MAINTAIN

It is an easy-to-manage option as it requires little maintenance and stays intact for extended periods.

COST-EFFECTIVE

This is one of the primary reasons why asphalt is a preferred choice among homeowners. 

FLEXIBLE

Asphalt is more flexible than concrete, making it less vulnerable to significant cracking.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

SHOULD I OPT FOR AN ASPHALT OVERLAY?

"Asphalt overlay" or "Resurfacing" refers to paving asphalt on top of existing asphalt. It is generally done after comprehensively examining your current asphalt pavement for cracks, faults, or problem areas. If your pavement is in good condition, the top layer is removed for improved grip and a fresh layer of asphalt is laid on top. Sealing may be ideal if your existing asphalt is in good shape but needs renewal.

WHICH IS BETTER, A COLD MIX OR A HOT MIX?

Cold mix asphalt is typically used in the off-season or for minor repairs. We employ hot mix asphalt most of the season for optimal results.

DO I TREAT MY RECENTLY FINISHED ASPHALT PAVEMENT?

Asphalt aftercare requires you not to use or drive over it for 24-48 hours. The duration is longer for hotter seasons. It should be followed with the standard regular seal coating and resurfacing maintenance.

WHAT IS THE EXPECTED LIFESPAN OF A NEW ASPHALT DRIVEWAY?

A homeowner can expect the driveway to last 30 years or longer if they use good products. Many projects can survive 40 to 50 years if properly maintained. Regular maintenance and vigilant care of your pavement or parking lot can considerably extend your property's life.
