How Does Your Parking Lot Or Driveway Look?

Don’t estimate the how you asphalt parking lot or driveway looks. It’s one of the first things people notice when they drive up. If the asphalt is in poor condition, not only does it leave a negative impression, it can pose a danger. 

Consider these essentials tips when creating an parking lot design 

Thickness of the pavement 

Before construction even begins, the quality of the ground soil should be determined. The types of vehicles using the parking lot, cars, SUVs, or 6-wheelers, should be taken into consideration when it comes to the depth of the asphalt.  The more weight, the deeper the asphalt. 

Parking lot size, space layout and accessibility 

It is important to have enough spaces, the average space is 9×19 feet. If you angle the spaces (45 degrees) it will allow for more spaces. Other zones should be taken into consideration, drive thru lanes, drop off zones, ramps, curbs, walkways, and handicap parking. Don’t forget to make it attractive with bushes, trees, flowers. Which can also act as a barrier.

Keep it safe 

Properly installed sub-drainage is responsible for strong pavement, lasting well into the future. To preserve the sub-grade drainage pipes should be installed with filters. This allows a consistent flow of water and contain small particles of soil within the sub-grade. Proper materials are also important to ensure potholes don’t happen in the future, or any sinking or shifting in the foundation.

Orlando, Osceola, Windermere Land Clearing & Paving

The key to lasting pavement is proper drainage, construction techniques, and quality materials. Whether it’s for a walkway, road, or asphalt driveway here in Central Florida, creating proper drainage will prevent potholes and cracking. 

Asphalt’s greatest nemesis is water infiltration. The design and installation of pavement should take into account the slope and drainage. A lasting drainage system takes into account subheading and surface drainage. 

What’s the secret to a pavement that last for years without any problems? 

Subgrade Drainage

Properly installed subdrainage is responsible for strong pavement, lasting well into the future. To preserve the subgrade drainage pipes should be installed with filters. This allows a consistent flow of water and contain small particles of soil within the subgrade. Proper materials are also important to ensure potholes don’t happen in the future, or any sinking or shifting in the foundation. 

Surface Drainage

The quality and type of asphalt mix used for a project are vital for proper surface drainage. An intact, impermeable surface creates a protected subgrade. Which means water won’t pool near the edges and water will drain properly, protecting the subgrade.
