Paving (“overlaying”) is the most common method utilized to extend the life of your parking lot. It gives your lot the appearance of brand new construction, without actually removing the existing asphalt parking lot. A traditional overlay scope involves placing a new layer of asphalt over the top of your existing parking lot. The thickness of an overlay is typically 1.5″ but this can vary depending on traffic conditions and customer needs. We also offer a geotextile fabric option, which goes between the old and new asphalt and serves as a waterproof membrane (call for details). If properly maintained, an overlay product can last 10-15+ years, depending on site conditions. In extremely deteriorated asphalt parking lots, where overlaying is not an option, we have the capabilities of completely removing and replacing/repaving the existing parking lot OR we can offer a pulverize and pave scope. In this method, we would provide a pulverize machine to grind up the existing asphalt into small pieces/bits and then recycle it by utilizing the material, where applicable, for a new base, prior to paving scope. This is environmentally sound and also a great way to improve pre existing drainage and sub grade issues.
