When it comes to laying a commercial or multi-family parking lot, longevity matters. If the material doesn’t last, you’ll have to repave it and no one wants to waste their money on a poorly done job. There is a reason why we choose asphalt for roads and parking lots. Asphalt lasts. It is sustainable, long lasting and durable.
When you think of sustainable materials, you might not initially think about asphalt. The truth is pavement is a heavily recycled material. When contractors redo a road or parking lot, the asphalt doesn’t have to be thrown out. They can reuse it. This makes it one of the more sustainable materials and shows how asphalt lasts.
Asphalt lasts. You do have to resurface the distressed upper layer of asphalt, but usually, you don’t have to do this for about 15 to 20 years. On average, you won’t have to refinish your parking lot for 13 years. This is incredibly cost-effective, knowing that it’s easy to maintain and you don’t have to worry about expensive replacements in the near future.
If the longevity isn’t enough, the pavement is durable. If it stands the tests of roadways, it handles parking. You want something that isn’t going to easily become damaged or grooved with weather or use. The point of a high-quality parking lot is for it to last and asphalt is one of the best materials for a lasting driveway.
When you have a commercial property, you need the parking lot to look good. This is the same when you rent out a multi-family property. The driveway is going to see a lot of traffic and it needs to appeal to tenants and customers. Asphalt happens to be one of the more eco-friendly, long lasting materials when it comes to building driveways.
