Since 1968, businesses and other professional operations in Wake County have called on Blalock Paving for their asphalt parking lot paving. Our extensive experience and close ties to local construction contractors have made us the go-to choice for parking lots, and we have hundreds of successful projects in our past to prove our skills.
Why Choose Asphalt For Your Parking Lot?
There are several potential materials you could use for a parking lot, including asphalt, concrete, or gravel. Why pick asphalt?
1 – Long lifespan
No other parking lot material lasts nearly as long as asphalt. It’s the material of choice for roads, driveways, and parking lots across America due to its longevity. You can expect at least 20 years of service from your asphalt.
2 – Easy economical installation
Asphalt is faster to install than many of the alternatives, and cheaper to implement as well. It typically only takes about 6 hours to harden and become usable.
3 – Low maintenance
You really don’t have to do much to maintain an asphalt parking lot. Ideally, asphalt should be professionally seal coated every 3-5 years. If any cracks do form, they can be easily patched by our team using a rubberized crack sealer.
The Asphalt Parking Lot Paving Process
Blalock Paving’s process for laying down asphalt parking lots is simple and time-tested.
1 – Planning
We don’t start the job without a thorough examination of the ground, as well as consultation with our client to understand their needs in detail.
2 – Installing the sub-base
Asphalt needs a stable base to form a hard, long-lasting surface capable of supporting cars. This is typically done with aggregate stone, followed by extensive measurements to ensure the surface is properly level.
3 – Laying the asphalt
Finally, the asphalt is laid and compacted. We use only top-grade materials, meeting or exceeding all state and federal standards. Once laid, your parking lot will be ready for use the following day.
