What Is Asphalt?

Asphalt is a mixture of aggregate particles, like sand and gravel, bound together by bituminous product, a semi-solid form of petroleum. A new asphalt parking lot begins with an aggregate, such as gravel, with a layer of finer gravel above. This is known as the "sub-base," and is generally around 6" thick. Once the sub-base is compacted using a heavy roller, the first layer of asphalt of about 2.5" is laid and compacted. Last, the surface layer of asphalt is laid and compacted at between 1.5" - 2" thickness. Thickness of asphalt layers are not necessarily constant. The most common depths for an asphalt parking lot in the Cleveland, Ohio area is 4" or 6", chosen by a careful determination of the traffic's net weight, drainage quality, and temperature variation that the parking lot will endure. Naturally, the surface layer will accrue the most damage over time. A parking lot with structural damage on the surface does not need to be replaced, instead, Ohio Paving & Construction will resurface the pavement by removing the surface layer of asphalt and applying a new asphalt layer of the same or similar depth. Asphalt is a very "green" material, as its millings can be recycled to be used in a future asphalt parking lot construction or resurfacing.

It's Expensive... Why Bother?

Just as landscaping and brick-and-mortar curb appeal make an impact, the appearance of a parking lot makes a very clear statement about the professionalism of your establishment. Everything the customer experiences, from puddling to potholes to faded parking spaces, will impact the impression you give to the outside world. What's more, these experiences can leave permanent blemishes on your business - think poor Google or Yelp reviews- which have measurable impact on future business. In fact, one study found up to 70% of first time sales were credited to the business's curb appeal. It's clearly a worthwhile investment to maintain a quality parking lot. So, where do you go from here?
