Determine the Best Type of Parking Lot Surface for Your Needs
If you and your asphalt contractor have decided that a reconstruction or asphalt installation is the best choice for your paving project, you might be interested in understanding different paving materials.
• Perpetual Pavement uses a multi-layer paving process designed to extend the useful life of a roadway or parking lot. In the installation process, a strong, supportive base prevents cracks in the bottom of the pavement, a strong middle layer, built to be permanent, is laid on top and a driving surface is added that will last for several years but is replaced periodically. With a solid base that can last for long periods of time and periodic asphalt overlays to give the surface a fresh, smooth look, long term costs are reduced significantly.
• Porous Asphalt is an environmentally, water friendly asphalt solution because it allows water to penetrate through the pavement and into the groundwater below. Porous asphalt solves may water runoff problems and can be especially beneficial for large parking lots which get flooded with water after rain or snow storms. This advanced pavement helps enhance storm water management. Talk with your local governing body about whether you can get tax credits for this green-pavement solution.
• Quiet Asphalt is a great option for residential community parking lots. By choosing quiet asphalt, which is made with a stone asphalt mix, you can reduce noise pollution by as much as 50 percent! The use of quiet asphalt can save you money, because you won’t be required to put up and maintain noise barrier walls or other noise reducing structures.
• Custom Asphalt Mixes can come in a variety of forms, based on your individual needs. If you work with an asphalt paving contractor who maintains their own asphalt plant, your asphalt mix can be tailored to meet your needs.
