5 Characteristics of a Quality Paving Job

by | Aug 10, 2017

You shouldn’t trust your parking lot paving job to just anyone. After all, your lot is what greets customers visiting your property, and you want to make a powerful first impression. Beyond aesthetic appeal, the lot also needs to be safe for visitors. It’s easy to think about the “form” when it comes to paving, but you simply cannot ignore the “function.”

You want visitors to be greeted with a clean, safe, and well-maintained lot. This tells customers that you take pride in your business. It’s also a really great way to let them know they are appreciated, and you want them to have the best experience possible.

When you need to upgrade or expand your parking lot, you should know some characteristics as to what makes for a quality paving job. We want to help you with this by outlining a few important ones you should keep in mind, including:

  1. There’s a smooth integration with existing pavement. Whereas it’s certainly possible you are having a lot paved for the first time, the more likely scenario is that you’re expanding or updating existing pavement. Either way, a quality paving job will provide a smooth transition from new pavement to the old.
  2. The pavement has a stable, even gravel base. You won’t see it, and neither will your customers, but the sub-base is an essential part of the new pavement. As with almost anything in life, a proper foundation is essential for a quality product. Without a proper gravel foundation, your lot could buckle under the weight of vehicle traffic. The best way to avoid this is with precision installation of sub-base from experienced paving professionals.
  3. Water will drain properly. Standing water puts your lot at risk for damage that could be costly to repair. When we perform paving jobs, one of the most important objectives is to ensure that water has somewhere to go.
  4. Attention has been paid to the details. Details matter, for both form and function of your parking lot. Our experienced team always takes measures to ensure clean edges and an even surface. We fully intend your parking lot to last and look great for many years to come, and this is only possible when we provide the greatest amount of attention possible.
