Asphalt is the material of choice for parking lots across the nation because it withstands heavier loads and, when combined with proper asphalt maintenance, lasts for many years. As asphalt pavement progresses through its performance lifecycle, its appearance diminishes over time.  Therefore, it’s extremely important to develop a pavement management plan so your investment lasts as long as possible.

There are several common asphalt maintenance procedures for parking lots. They include asphalt removal and replacement, resurfacing, and infrared asphalt repair.

Benefits of asphalt removal and replacement include: safety, aesthetics, and structural integrity, as it helps keep pavement in top condition, alleviates any trip hazards, creates a favorable and inviting impression, and helps maximize the overall lifespan of the pavement.  Resurfacing also has its benefits.  It’s a cost-effective structural repair and can prolong pavement life by seven to 12 years.  Plus, adding a layer of asphalt over an existing base can build a stronger, longer-lasting foundation.  Infrared asphalt repair is the best solution for critical repairs – and can be done quickly, and in any climate!  This unique method blends hot-mix asphalt right in with the original and then compacts the area to create a seamless restoration.  This repair is especially convenient on pothole damage and pavement heaving.
