Asphalt pavement is preferred for parking lots and road environments because of its durability, strength, simplicity of repair, easy installation and its cost-effectiveness. Asphalt pavement, or sometimes called blacktop, will last for many years when properly maintained.
To maximize the longevity of your asphalt parking lot, you’ll want to talk with one of our staff to develop an Asphalt Maintenance Plan that involves preventative maintenance and routine inspections.
New Asphalt / Blacktop Parking Lot Installation
When it is time to expand your parking lot for additional parking spaces or you just need an entirely new parking lot, Shamrock Asphalt should be your first choice. An expert Shamrock Asphalt estimator can work with owners and property managers, from start to finish, with all aspects of expanding and installing a new asphalt / blacktop area of almost any size and scope. We handle the job from leveling, to line striping.
Asphalt Removal & Replacement
Asphalt’s appearance diminishes over time by developing fine cracks that spread and deepen within the asphalt. Without ongoing preventive maintenance, water enters through these cracks and creates holes that undermine the substrate. When this occurs, the most effective repair is to replace the problem area completely, before it causes damage to the entire structure footprint.
Layers of asphalt can also build up over time and require asphalt milling. Modern machines are used to replace an asphalt surface quickly and efficiently.
In cases where the asphalt structure has failed completely, a longer-term and cost-effective solution is to resurface the asphalt pavement area. This is also referred to as an overly. This process is extremely useful in situations where you have noticed standing water or where you have large sections of interconnected cracks that resemble alligator skin (also referred to as alligatored).
Protect Your Asphalt Parking Lot Investment
In addition to ongoing preventive maintenance, sealcoating asphalt pavement will slow pavement deterioration by protecting against the enemies of a parking lot. However, for maximum benefit, sealcoat needs to be applied approximately 1 year after installing new asphalt and then on a regular basis, every 2 to 3 years thereafter.
