In addition, an experienced paving company will understand the fastest ways to install a parking lot without interrupting your business.
2. Understand the Importance of a Stable Pavement Base
Like any other construction project, the pavement base layer must be correctly installed to remain stable. This starts with soil stabilization and site excavation that prepares the soil underneath for the weight of asphalt and vehicles. A gravel base must also be properly installed, graded for drainage, and compacted.
3. Proper Drainage is Key for Long-Lasting Asphalt
Pooling water on a paved surface contributes to deterioration, causing cracks, depressions, and pavement failure. That’s why it’s vital that your parking lot is correctly graded and also has concrete drainage installations to direct water away from the asphalt and into municipal wastewater systems.
4. Attention to Detail in Parking Lot Installation
While asphalt is warm, contractors should perform finishing services to ensure a flat, attractive pavement surface and sharp, protected edges. A steam roller smooths out the surface, and services like sealcoating lock in the new pavement and protect it from wear and tear. Concrete curbing also protects asphalt edges, so it lasts longer.
5. ADA-Compliant Spaces and Signage
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that all citizens can access public spaces, regardless of any mobility issues. This means that public parking lots must have areas marked for disabled drivers and loading zones and ramps.
